China To Build Its First Deep Sea Oil Spill Response Centre


BEIJING, Dec 19 (Reuters) - China will set up its first deep sea oil spill emergency centre in the southern city of Shenzhen, China's state asset supervisor said on its website.

The oil spill response centre, in the vicinity of CNOOC's Huizhou oilfield, will be capable to handle spills from pipelines located 1,500 meters below the sea surface level.

The emergency centre will provides services to oil blocks in both the East China sea and the South China sea areas, the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council (SASAC) said.
