Gazprom has set the start of gas supplies to China for 2019, the Russian company said after a meeting between its CEO Alexei Miller and China's First Deputy Prime Minister Zhang Gaoli.
The 30-year contract for the supply of up to 38 billion cubic meters of natural gas per year was signed with China's CNPC in May 2014. Under the contract, deliveries are due to begin in four to six year's time.
"The beginning of natural gas production at the Chayanda field has been scheduled for the end of 2018, by which time we should have seen the launch of the first-line section of the Sila Sibiri (Force of Siberia) gas transportation system between the Chayanda field and the city of Blagoveshchensk, and the of first-line gas-processing facilities. This will enable us to start direct gas supplies to China in 2019 in line with the obligations stipulated in the signed contract," Gazprom wrote in a press release on Saturday.
