The capacity of the Sakhalin-Khabarovsk-Vladivostok inter-regional pipeline (SHV) can be expanded to send gas to China, Gazprom said in a memorandum of a new issue of Eurobonds, calling China's consumers potential customers for gas pipeline expansion, the latest issue of the EastRussia bulletin says.

According to the plan, to increase the capacity of the gas pipeline system, it is planned to lay 353 km of pipe from Komsomolsk-on-Amur to Khabarovsk. This part of the pipeline is planned to be launched in 2020 year. Recall that the previously planned length was 345 km, and commissioning was scheduled for 2019 year.

Nevertheless, progress on the project remains declared. So, the contract with China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) on deliveries under this gas transportation system has not yet been signed. According to industry experts, the construction of this facility is not among the priorities of Gazprom for the coming years. In particular, the corporation did not inform pipe producers about specific procurement plans for this line, nor was a contract for construction and installation works.
