China’s first 'smart' oil platform starts operating

China's first Artificial Intelligence-powered "smart" oil platform in the Bohai Sea has started operating, China Central Television reported on Friday.

The biggest difference to the country's conventional oil platforms is that the new control system uses AI, as well as cloud computing, 5G communications and Beidou satellite navigation to operate.

Together, these technologies activate the production processes at the Smart Field Qinhuangdao 32-6 facility and equip the platform's smart safety system, meant to decrease the risk of safety hazards for workers and the environment.
