The Russian “Gazprom” holding company has built more than 1,095 kilometers of the “Siberian Power” (“Sila Sibiri”) pipeline. “More than 1,095 kilometers of the gas pipeline, or 50.7 percent of the total length of its prime section from the Chayandinskoye field to Blagoveshchensk, have been built until today” – the representatives of “Gazprom” noted.
The company stressed the fact that the construction of the “Siberian Power” goes ahead of schedule. In May 2014 Moscow and Beijing signed a contract for the supply of 38 billion cubic meters of Russian gas per year via the “Siberia Power” pipeline which is to become one of the largest gas main lines in Russia. It will connect the fields in Irkutsk Oblast and Yakutia with the Amur gas processing plant. The fuel will be sent from there to the countries of the Asia-Pacific region, first of all, to China.
