The Central Asia natural gas pipeline C line is put into production, which is of great significance to China's energy conservation and emission reduction.
At 11 o'clock in the morning, the C-line of the Central Asian natural gas pipeline jointly built by PetroChina and Central Asian partners was put into operation, and the Central Asian-Chinese multinational energy artery once again improved its transport capacity.
The Central Asia Natural Gas Pipeline C-line project is another energy aorta planned and constructed by PetroChina on the basis of the completed A and B lines. The C line is laid in parallel with the A line and the B line. The total length of the line is 1830 kilometers. The construction started in September 2012 and the line was completed at the end of 2013. The C-line gas source comes from Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. The line starts from Gdaim, on the border of Tuwu, and enters the Khorgos port of Xinjiang via Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. It is connected to the third line of the West-East Gas Pipeline in China.
According to reports, after the completion of the relevant supporting facilities at the end of 2015, the C line will reach a designed gas transmission capacity of 25 billion cubic meters per year, which will increase the full-line transportation capacity of the Central Asian natural gas pipeline to 55 billion cubic meters per year, which will meet 23% of the domestic Natural gas consumption demand. In promoting energy structure adjustment, China's natural gas consumption will increase from 6% to 8% in the primary energy structure.
