Russia’s Gazprom said on Friday that it had resumed gas flows to China via the Power of Siberia gas pipeline after maintenance work.
Russia launched gas deliveries to China via the Power of Siberia pipeline two years ago as the project is one of the most anticipated energy projects in Asia, with significant implications for China’s natural gas supply.
It was expected then that the full Russia-China gas pipeline will be completed by 2022-23 and will have a length of 3,371 km so that in reaching full capacity, it would account for around 9.5% of China’s total gas supply estimates of 402 Bcm for 2022.
In 2020, Gazprom delivered 4.1 billion cubic meters of gas to China via Power of Siberia from the Chayandinskoye field. In 2021, deliveries through the Power of Siberia increased and regularly surpassed daily contractual obligations
The Power of Siberia gas pipeline is the largest gas transportation system in Eastern Russia.
