China has finished the slot construction of its first unmanned offshore oil platform on Wednesday at Enping Oilfield in the South China Sea.

The platform, named EP10-2, does not have any offices or living quarters. As a result, it's much cheaper to build and maintain, enabling oil companies to drill fields that are not cost-effective enough for traditional rigs. Annual maintenance cost for this platform could be 10 million yuan (about $1.49 million) cheaper than its manned equivalent.

The size of the platform is significantly smaller than traditional rigs. The deck is reduced to half and total weight is only two-thirds of the traditional platforms.What's more, the platform can work under extreme conditions like typhoon since it is mostly remote-controlled.
