PetroChina to double natural gas pipelines by 2015

Monday, Jan 05, 2009

Petrochina Co plans to almost double the length of its natural gas pipelines by 2015 to meet rising demand for the cleaner-burning fuel. The nations top oil and gas producer will add 21,000 kilometers of new gas pipelines by the end of 2015, bringing the total to 43,000km, parent China National Petroleum Corp said in a statement.

About half of the expansion will come from the nations second west-east gas pipeline, which is under construction and due for completion in 2011. This line, stretching 6,500km from Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region to Guangdong Province, will be able to deliver 30 million cubic meters of gas from Central Asia per year, or nearly half of the national consumption in 2007.

The length will be 9,102km if eight sub-pipelines are taken into account. The project also includes a 1,794km section through Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan to the boarder in Xinjiang. Turkmenistan has agreed to supply gas to China for 30 years. PetroChina is also considering building Chinas third west-east gas pipeline.  The companys present gas pipelines measuring 22,000km already doubles the amount it had in 2000, CNPC said.
