As representative of the organizer of the event, Ms. Yongmei Li, Assistant Dean of the College of Engineering welcomed the guests and and expressed tribute to the pioneers of China's energy industry. She pointed out that China Petroleum, Sinopec, and CNOOC are of great significance for the national economic construction, even national security, while Peking University has a long history of connection with them. She hopes this event will make teachers and students recognize the important position of the national energy companies, and improve their awareness and interest in the energy career as well.
Mr. Qun Li of Petro China introduced the company’s main business in China and abroad and its science and technology innovation system. He pointed out that scientific and technological innovation has become a strong driving force for China's oil development, which makes the overall core technology of the company reach the international advanced level.

"Offshore Oil 981" is China's first independently designed deep water semi-submersible drilling platform, whose completion marks China’s independent research and development capabilities and international competitiveness in the field of marine engineering equipment. As the witness and technology pioneer of China's sea oil exploration into the deep water, he and his team successfully broke the technical bottlenecks in marine deep water drilling, growing into the world's fourth technical team.
The speech of the experts were rich in practical examples and contained profound ideas, which arose great interests among the teachers and students. The audience put forward lots of questions in the themes of "the public safety risk assessment principles in the energy industry", "the status of oil in the world energy distribution", "the application of artificial intelligence / large data in the oil industry" and many aspects related to the technology, industry, and public policy, and the experts answered them in details.
