PTTEP initiated the underwater camera installation and Artificial Intelligence (AI) software development project together with AI and Robotics Ventures Company Limited (ARV), for the identification of aquatic iconic animals underneath offshore petroleum platforms in the Gulf of Thailand to promote and support national efforts on aquatic species conservation, to increase their population and survival rate.
Currently, underwater camera has been installed at the jacket leg of our offshore petroleum platform, As well the software is being developed to identify and classify an aquatic iconic animal. At present, 7 aquatic animals, such as fish, turtles, whales, dolphins, sharks, seals, and sea lions with 7 aquatic animal species, can be identified. with 85% accurately recognized. This also helps in marine biodiversity and ecosystem monitoring around PTTEP’s offshore petroleum platforms. This is in line with PTTEP’s commitment to operate in a cleaner and more friendly environment.
