Thursday 8 September 2011
(Bloomberg) – China, the world’s biggest energy user, signed an accord with Kazakhstan to expand the capacity of a pipeline network delivering natural gas from Central Asia by more than 80%.
The two governments agreed to build the Kazakh section of Pipeline “C” that will originate from Turkmenistan and cut through Uzbekistan, China National Petroleum Corp., the country’s biggest oil and gas producer, said in its online newsletter today. The link will flank two existing pipelines running through the three Central Asian nations.
