China's CNPC Starts Laying Fourth Shaanxi-Beijing Gas Pipeline

Reuters

BEIJING, Aug 12 (Reuters) - China National Petroleum Corp (CNPC) said on Friday it has started laying the fourth Shaanxi-Beijing gas pipeline, a major project that will help increase natural gas supply to China's north-eastern region, and help tackle choking smog in cities.

The pipeline, which runs 1,114 kilometres, will start operations before October 2017, the company said in a statement.

The approval for the construction came six years after CNPC completed the third Shaanxi-Beijing pipeline in 2010.

The fourth project's annual capacity is 25 billion cubic meters, while the existing three pipelines have a total capacity of 35 billion cubic meters.
