Pipe­line will help to boost en­ergy di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion

China Daily (USA) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

China is ex­pected to im­port 30 mil­lion met­ric tons of crude oil from Rus­sia an­nu­ally start­ing next year through two trans­mis­sion pipe­lines be­tween the two coun­tries, in the lat­est step to guar­an­tee China’s en­ergy di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion.

Con­struc­tion of the in­fra­struc­ture for the ma­jor line of China’s sec­ond Sino-Rus­sian crude oil trans­mis­sion pipe­line will be com­pleted by the end of this month, said a chief en­gi­neer for the project.

Re­peated tests will be con­ducted for two months un­til the pipe­line goes into ser­vice at the be­gin­ning of next year.

The 585-mile pipe­line has the ca­pac­ity to trans­mit 15 mil­lion tons of crude oil an­nu­ally.
