3,000-km-long pipeline brings Siberian gas to China
A major new pipeline will begin delivering Russian gas to China on Monday. The 3,000 kilometer line was built by Russian energy giant Gazprom. It brings gas from Siberia to Blagoveshchensk, near the Russian-Chinese border. From there it's picked up by a Chinese pipeline that takes it into neighboring Jilin Province. Next year the gas pipeline will be extended into Hebei Province near Beijing. And by 2024, Russian gas will reach Shanghai.
