China completes trial exploration of flammable ice

China completes the trial exploration of flammable ice in the South China Sea, which extracted more than 300,000 cubic meters after a 60 day non-stop mining operation on Sunday, July 9, 2017. Starting from May 10, the mining operation in waters about 320 kilometers to the southeast of Zhuhai city, Guangdong Province, has beaten previous expectations and set world records in both the length and total amount of extraction, according to the China Geological Survey Bureau. The trial exploration saw an average daily extraction of more than 5,000 cubic meters of high purity gas, with the highest daily output at 35,000 cubic meters. Meanwhile, 6.47 million sets of experimental data were recorded. (Photo: China News Service/Zhu Xia)
