BEIJING Jan 5 (Reuters) - China has raised the threshold of windfall tax on crude oil production to $55 a barrel from the previous $40, effective from November 1 last year, Sinopec Corp , the country's second largest oil producer, said in a statement.

This indicated oil producers would pay less tax for their crude oil production.

The statement was published on the Shanghai Securities Exchange's website (www.sse.com.cn).
