Axis enhances security of oil drilling equipment manufacturer

Baoji Oilfield Machinery deploys high definition IP camera surveillance system

BOMCO’s technology upgrade project employs Axis IP camera products. Operations have been stable since the installation and commissioning of the project, the video images are clear, greatly easing the pressures the security guards face in the patrolling of the production plant. We hope to continue our partnership with Axis in future projects.“ Baoji Oilfield Machinery staff.


Baoji Oilfield Machinery Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), is an oil drilling equipment R&D and manufacturing enterprise. It is the world’s largest land-based oil rig and serial mud pump R&D and manufacturing base, and a leading enterprise in the oil drilling equipment R&D and manufacturing industry in China. In order to upgrade the company’s management efficiency and strengthen the security of its production management, it was necessary for Baoji Oilfield Machinery to deploy a new IP camera surveillance system. Taking into consideration the various conditions of the production plant such as the large quantity of expensive machinery and equipment, internal and external personnel, and the many potential risks, the front-end cameras had to be effective and stable, and provide high definition images, so that round-the-clock surveillance of the production plant was possible; the cameras had to be capable of handling difficult lighting conditions, high temperatures and other environmental issues.


Based on actual needs of the client, Axis and its partner designed an IP video surveillance system for Baoji Oil Machinery. A total of 143 Axis HDTV 720P HD dome IP cameras including AXIS P5534/-E and AXIS P3344 were installed in the production plant, ensuring round-the-clock, real-time recording. Within the existing comprehensive Local Area Network in the plant, a back-end surveillance management system was installed.


The new system employs HDTV 720P HD digital IP cameras on a large scale. The high quality images improve the efficiency of the visual management of the production plant. AXIS P5534 and AXIS P3344 Network Cameras possess Power over Ethernet capability whereby there is no need to install the control cable and power supply cable separately, resulting in 70% of cost savings in wiring costs. The centralized platform makes it possible for a client’s computer with a single management account and platform to oversee the entire system.
