BEIJING, Sept. 23 (Xinhua) -- China Oilfield Service Ltd (COSL),a listing arm of the country's largest offshore oil producer, CNOOC, set its initial public offering price at 13.48 yuan for each share, according to a circular released by the company here Sunday.

COSL will raise 6.74 billion yuan with the price as it plans to issue 500 million shares in the yuan-dominated A share.

Its share is expected to be traded on Sept. 28 at Shanghai Stock Exchange, according to the company's previous report.
