China will build its own deep water oil exploration fleet in three to four years. The fleet will be able to work in deep waters all over the world, except for the north pole.
China's Offshore Oil Company
has launched the strategy for building such a fleet. The company's spokesman, Liu Junshan, said one of their future targets would be deep sea oil exploration.
