Yakutia 24 TV channel with the reference to TASS: Gazprom has completed the process of filling the Power of Siberia gas pipeline. Gas from the Chayandinskoye field in Yakutia was brought to the border gas metering station in the Blagoveshchensk area.
“Thus, the linear part of the pipeline has been prepared for the start of pipeline deliveries of Russian gas to China,” the statement says.
It is noted that the next stage of work is the filling with gas the Amur River trans-border crossing.
Earlier, the head of the republic Aisen Nikolaev said that the Power of Siberia would begin to supply gas to China by December 1, 2019.
Gazprom and the Chinese CNPC signed an agreement on the supply of Russian gas to China via the eastern route in May 2014. The agreement was concluded for 30 years and envisages an annual supply of 38 billion cubic meters of Russian gas to China via the Power of Siberia gas pipeline.
The Chayandinskoye oil and gas condensate field is one of the largest in the east of Russia. It is the base for the formation of the Yakutia gas production center and a resource base for the Power of Siberia gas pipeline.
