China's 300-meter deepwater jacket Haiji-1 has been successfully installed and accurately positioned at sea in south China.

The Haiji-1 deepwater jacket measures 302 meters in total height and 30,000 tonnes in weight, and this is the first time for China to install a fixed jacket in a water depth of nearly 300 meters.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) announced on Thursday that its members will release 120 million barrels of crude oil reserves over the next six months, in the face of the global energy shortage caused by the conflict in Ukraine.

The Fuling shale gas field in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality produced over 1.8 billion cubic meters of natural gas in the first quarter of 2022, up 1.67 percent year on year, according to Sinopec, the developer and China's largest oil refiner.

China's largest oil-and-gas field, Changqing oilfield, had produced over 17.7 billion cubic meters of natural gas during this winter heating season, statistics as of March 15 showed.

As China's largest natural gas production base, the oilfield supplies natural gas to more than 40 major cities, including Beijing and Tianjin. For four consecutive years, its daily gas output during winter peak supply has maintained an increase of 10 million cubic meters.

During the latest heating season, Changqing oilfield also offered sufficient natural gas supplies to the Olympic Villages in the three competition areas of the Beijing Winter Olympics and relevant hotels.

Over the past 25 years, Changqing oilfield has supplied more than 520 billion cubic meters of natural gas, equivalent to the total calorific value of power generated by the Three Gorges Hydroelectric Power Station on China's Yangtze River in 40 years.

The truck was produced by Xiangtan Electric Manufacturing Group in Hunan province to replace diesel engines with batteries, which can work for eight continuous hours after one-hour of charging.

Compared with diesel trucks, electrical power cuts energy consumption in half, and reduces the costs of operation and maintenance by 20 percent. Each truck can also reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 1,500 tons per year, according to the Inner Mongolia branch of State Power Investment Corp, which is leading the program.

"The truck is a significant milestone in the upgrading of mining equipment. It is intelligent and zero-carbon, and will set an example for others in the industry," said Liu Jianping, Party secretary and chairman of the branch.

The Nanlutian mine will gradually replace all its diesel-powered dump trucks with electric ones, to promote green, low-carbon, environmentally friendly production in the coal mining industry, the company said.(By Yuan Hui in Hohhot and Chen Meiling)
