Central Asian natural gas has successfully reached its intended Chinese market through the recently completed Line C of the Central Asia-China pipeline, according to Chinese media sources.

The gas began its journey on 31st May when the newly commissioned gas valve of the Line C section was switched on, allowing gas from Turkmenistan to flow through the CNPC-led trunkline.

The 1,830 kilometre long Line C runs parallel with Line A and Line B, starting from Gedaim on the border of Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan and entering China at Horgos, Xinjiang, to link up with the Third West-East gas pipeline. Construction of Line C was started in September 2012, and the overall welding work of the pipeline was completed at the end of 2013.

From Horgos in Xinjiang, the pipeline then connects with China’s West-East pipelines, to deliver natural gas across the country.
