Restoring Marine Environment and Fishery Resources

In 2012, we initiated and completed the Shenzhen-Hong Kong subsea pipeline of the Second West-East Gas Pipeline, which connects Hong Kong with the West-East Gas Pipeline Networks. Before project construction, we carried out a marine environmental impact assessment in an effort to minimize marine environmental pollution. During construction, we set up the EPIC (Engineering, Procurement, Installation, Construction) Project Department with Shengli Petroleum and Chemical Construction Corporation of Shengli Oilfield, to enhance quality control and environmental protection in all links, and ensure compliance with the operating specifications. The project has reached the highest quality standards for oil & gas pipeline construction projects in China.

In May 2013, we launched the marine environment and fishery resources restoration project for the Shenzhen-Hong Kong subsea pipeline of the Second West-East Gas Pipeline. We returned 2 million young black sea bream to the sea, which will effectively improve the marine ecological environment and aquatic life.
