The prefecture-level city of Dongying administers 5 county-level divisions, including 3 districts and 2 counties:

  • Dongying District (东营区)
  • Hekou District (河口区)
  • Kenli District (垦利区)
  • Guangrao County (广饶县)
  • Lijin County (利津县)
  • These are further divided into 43 township-level divisions, including 23 towns, 13 townships and 7 subdistricts.


    The city was established in 1983, as a base for developing the Yellow River Delta and China's second largest oilfield, Shengli Field. The oilfield was discovered in 1964 near a small village called Dongying, which gave its name to the city.


    Dongying is located on the banks of the Yellow River Delta of Northern Shandong Province. Bordering prefectures are:

  • Binzhou to the west
  • Zibo to the southwest
  • Weifang to the south
  • The city is located at 36° 55'–38° 10' N latitude and 118° 07′–119° 10' E longitude, and has a total area of 7,923 square kilometres (3,059 sq mi). The city's 350 km (220 mi) coastline borders Laizhou Bay and Bohai Bay to the east and north respectively.


    Dongying has a monsoon-influenced, four-season climate that lies in the transition between the humid continental and humid subtropical (Köppen Dwa and Cwa, respectively) regimes, with hot, humid summers, and cold but dry winters. The city is dry and nearly rainless in spring, hot and rainy in summer, crisp in autumn and dry and cold (with little snow) in winter. The average annual temperature is 13.1 °C (55.6 °F), and the annual precipitation is 559 millimetres (22.0 in), with a strong summer maximum, and high variability from year to year. January is the coldest and driest month, with a mean temperature of −2.6 °C (27.3 °F) and 5.5 mm (0.22 in) of equivalent rainfall. July is the hottest and wettest month; the corresponding numbers are 26.8 °C (80.2 °F), and 168.8 mm (6.65 in).


    A large part of the city's economy revolves around petroleum and the nearby Shengli Oil Field.

    Industries include petroleum, petrochemistry, saline chemistry, papermaking, machinery, electronics, construction, building materials, foodstuff processing, pneumatic tires and rubber, textiles, and light industries.

    Dongying is one of the world's leading producers of rubber tires. It has more tire factories than any other city in the world.

    Recently, Dongying's economy has grown significantly, reflecting the high development of China's economy. The city's growing manufacturing sector and its proximity to oil reserves have led to increased company investments. An example is DuPont, which invested 5 billion yuan in 2005 to build a titanium dioxide factory in the area. After this project's completion, it became the largest investment outside of the US for DuPont.
