During the 2019 National Science and Technology Award Ceremony held in Beijing on January 8, the project “Key Technologies of Dynamic Evaluation, Monitoring and Forecasting, and Control for Major Engineering Landslides” led by Prof. TANG Huiming won the Second Prize of the State Scientific and Technological Progress Award, and the project “Theories, Technologies, and Major Discoveries of Exploration of Large-scale Deep Condensate Gas Fields in the Bohaiwan Basin” led by China National Offshore Oil Corporation, with CUG as the third research unit, won the First Prize of the State Scientific and Technological Progress Award.
To meet the major national demands of disaster prevention and mitigation, with the support of the Ministry of Science and Technology, the National Natural Science Foundation of China, the Ministry of Land and Resources, etc., the research team led by Prof. TANG obtained a series of outstanding innovation achievements with both international influence and application availability in the aspects of dynamic evaluation, monitoring and forecasting, and key technologies for control of major engineering landslides through the study of the key technologies for landslide prevention and control based upon the process control methodology.They established a dynamic evaluation system of landslides based upon the multi-field information, developed the in-situ prototype fine test technology of landslides and multi-field dynamic associated monitoring technology of landslides, and put forward key approaches to mitigation and optimized technologies of major engineering landslides. The achievements have been widely applied to the forecasting, early warning, and control of major landslides in the fields of large-scale water conservancy and hydropower projects, transportation projects, mining projects, etc., which has progressed the technologies of relevant industries and has brought socio-economic benefits.
CUG maintains a long-term and stable strategic cooperative relationship with China National Offshore Oil Corporation. Our research team led by Professors XIE Xinong and REN Jianye carried out research on the multi-source hydrocarbon generation and rapid gas generation under the background of lithosphere thinning in the inland rift basin. The team suggested a formation mechanism of buried hills following the process of “hill formation by compression at the early stage - segmentation by strike slip at the middle stage - deep burial by faulted depression at the late stage”, which provided technical support for the breakthrough of deep-lying natural gas exploration in the Bohai Sea. Their research is part of the project “Theories, technologies, and major discoveries of exploration of large-scale deep condensate gas fields in the Bohaiwan basin”.
CUG has won 11 national-level awards of science and technology in the past 10 years.
