Edited and Translated by Han Shasha, People's Daily Online

China will carry out safety inspections on all offshore oil exploration equipment to prevent pollution in the wake of oil spills in an oilfield in China's northern Bohai Bay.

The checks will be jointly conducted by the Ministry of Land and Resources, the Ministry of Environmental Protection, the Ministry of Transport, the Ministry of Agriculture, the State Administration of Work Safety, the National Energy Administration and the State Oceanic Administration.

The companies involved include the China National Petroleum Corporation, the China Petrochemical Corporation, the China National Offshore Oil Corporation and other Chinese and foreign corporations. All platforms, pipelines, floating production storage and offloading units, terminals, ships and wharfs around Bohai, the East China Sea and the South China Sea will be examined at random.
