Central Asia Pipeline Delivers First Gas To China

Posted on

The first section of the Central Asia Pipeline began delivering gas to China in late 2008.
  According to a Rigzone report, Sun Bo, general manager of CNPC Central Gas Pipeline Co, was quoted as saying that the Central Asian Gas Pipeline will connect with the second West to East Pipeline with an initial capacity of 4.5 Bcm.
  Capacity will rise to 30 Bcm by 2012, Sun said.
  CNPC signed agreements in July 2007 to import 30 Bcm/a of natural gas over the next 30 years from Turkmenistan via the Central Asia Gas Pipeline.
  Parallel pipelines linking the two countries will go through Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan before entering China via
Xinjiang.
