Dec 05, 2006 01:00 AM

PetroChina will double its natural gas output from the Tarim oil field in the north-western Xinjiang region this year, according to a company official.
The company will produce 11.4 bn cm of natural gas this year compared with 5.7 bn cm last year, according to Jiang Tongwen, president of the Prospecting and Development Institute under Tarim Oilfield, a unit of PetroChina.

PetroChina aims to produce 20 bn cm of gas annually from the field by 2010, nearly double this year's output, Sun Longde, general manager of Tarim Oilfield, was quoted as saying.
Tarim has proven natural gas reserves of 724.1 bn cm. PetroChina transmits gas from Tarim to the country's energy-starving east through the West-to-East Natural Gas pipeline.
