Russian gas supply to China via Power of Siberia resumed
Russia's Gazprom said it has restarted natural gas deliveries to China following the completion of regular maintenance at the Power of Siberia pipeline.
The pipeline had been shut since mid-March. Gazprom and China’s CNPC agreed that the pipeline would undergo a maintenance check-up twice a year, every spring and autumn, Reuters recalls.
The pipeline was launched in December. According to the plan, it would pump 5 billion cubic meters (bcm) of gas this year, reaching its annual peak of 38 bcm by 2025.
