Russia starts supplying gas to China via Power of Siberia pipeline

3 Dec 2019

Russia has officially started to supply gas to China through the 3,000 km-long Power of Siberia gas pipeline project. As agreed in 2014, Russia will deliver 38 bcm/year of gas to China over a 30-year period using the Power of Siberia pipeline.

Gazprom will deliver gas from the Chayandinskoye field in Yakutia (and from the Kovyktinskoye field located in the Irkutsk region as of early 2023) to Blagoveshchensk, at the Russian border with China, and to Changling in the Jilin province of China. In July 2019, China began to build a 1,110 km gas pipeline section to the project between Changling and Yongqing (in the Hebei province). The extension will be completed in October 2020.
