They have installed about 400 smart security cameras, 2.6 thousand automated assembly units and systems for round-the-clock automatic data collection on the production process, writes TASS.

China has commissioned the country's first "intelligent oil platform", which is located in the Bohai Bay in the water area of the city of Qinhuangdao (central Hebei Province). This was reported on Friday by China Central Television.

Its management system is equipped with technologies such as cloud computing, large databases, artificial intelligence, 5G communications, as well as Beidou satellite navigation. All these technologies are used in a complex to activate production process control systems at the facility, which has received the designation "Qinhuangdao 32-6 intellectual deposit".

The complex consists of several mining platforms with a large area. In total, about 400 smart security cameras, 2.6 thousand automated assembly units and systems for round-the-clock automatic data collection on the production process are installed on them. The platform is also equipped with an intelligent security system with artificial intelligence technology.

All these technologies, as reported by the China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC), can reduce the cost of servicing labor-intensive processes by 5-10%, as well as reduce the use of human labor by about 20%. By 2025, the company plans to invest up to 2.4 billion yuan (about 372.6 million dollars) in equipping its oil platforms with advanced technologies.

According to official data, China imported 346.36 million tons of oil from January to August this year, which is 5.7% less year-on-year than in the same period last year. The volume of oil production by Chinese companies in eight months increased by 2.4%, amounting to 133.22 million tons, and the refining index at national refineries increased by 7.4%, to 470.79 million tons.
