With 500 km of China's largest gas pipeline completed, gas is expected to be piped from Shaanxi to Beijing in September this year.
According to Yang Chengzhi, general manager of Beijing Natural Gas Transportation Company (BNGTC), the 3.3 bn yuan pipeline project with a total length of nearly 1,000 km, starting at Jingbian county in Shaanxi and ending at Shijingshan district in Beijing, runs through 22 cities and counties in the provinces of Shaanxi, Shanxi and Hebei, and Beijing municipality. Yang said the completed part of the pipeline-laying project covers complex topography. The project is scheduled to be completed in its entirety by September this year and to start gas supplies to Beijing and Tianjin at the end of that month.
The pipeline will have an annual supply capacity of 1.1 bncm in the first several years, and will reach as high as 2 bncm in later years.
