China CNPC completes domestic pipeline to receive more Russian oil

(Reuters) — China National Petroleum Corp completed the last welding of a 941.8-km pipeline in northeast China, ready to start taking Russian oil from Jan. 1, the state energy group said late on Sunday.

The pipeline that starts at the border town Mohe and ends in Daqing city, in Heilongjiang province, is part of the expansion program of the Russia-China pipeline project.

The expansion enables China to receive 30 MMt of Russian crude oil annually, double the current amount.

CNPC started building the pipeline that passes Heilongjiang province and Inner Mongolia in August 2016.
