Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev promised full support to Gazprom and China’s CNPC in the construction of the Power of Siberia gas pipeline
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev promised full support to Gazprom and China's CNPC in the design and construction of the gas transportation infrastructure necessary for gas supplies to China via the eastern route.
"At the government level, these companies will be provided comprehensive assistance in the design, construction and operation of the gas transportation infrastructure, which is necessary for the supply of Russian gas to our Chinese partners," he said at a government meeting, where the issue of concluding a relevant agreement was considered.
First of all, the matter concerns the Power of Siberia gas pipeline. The conclusion of the intergovernmental agreement is a condition for the entry into force of the contract for the sale and purchase of natural gas along the eastern route, signed on May 21, 2014 between Gazprom and the China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC).
Completion of construction and commissioning of the Chinese section of the Power of Siberia gas pipeline is scheduled for 2018
According to the project, the beginning of the gas pipeline will be in the city of Heihe in Heilongjiang province in northeast China. It will be held in Jilin Province, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, Liaoning, Hebei, Tianjin, Shandong, Jiangsu provinces to Shanghai. Construction will be divided into three sections - north, middle and south.
As previously reported with reference to Gazprom, by the end of 2018 it is planned to start gas production at the Chayandinskoye field and to put into operation the Power of Siberia.
On September 1, Russian President Vladimir Putin launched the construction of the Power of Siberia gas pipeline. The ceremony of joining the first link of the pipe, which will become the main export channel for Russian gas to China, was held in the area of the Yakut village of Us Khatyn.
Power of Siberia gas pipeline
The length of the new gas pipeline will be about 4000 km (Yakutia-Khabarovsk-Vladivostok - about 3200 km, Irkutsk Region-Yakutia - 800 km), capacity - 61 billion cubic meters of gas per year. The main resource base for Power of Siberia is considered to be two fields - Chayandinskoye with reserves of 1,2 trillion cubic meters and Kovykta - 1,5 trillion cubic meters. It is planned that up to 25 billion cubic meters of gas and at least 1,5 million tons of oil will be produced annually at Chayanda.
The development of the Chayanda gas pool will begin in 2015. The start of gas production is scheduled for the end of 2018, and the first export deliveries to China are scheduled for 2019.
