Guangdong East Gas Pipeline Network 粤东天然气主干管网, also known as Guangdong Provincial Natural Gas Network Phase III 广东省天然气管网三期工程, is a gas pipeline network in eastern Guandong that includes proposed, in construction, and operating pipelines.

Network location

The network's goal, with major and connecting pipelines, is to transmit sufficient gas to reach every county in Guandong Province. A map from the 13th Five-Year Plan describes the likely routes.[1]

Note this map displays only the pipelines listed below, and does not represent the entirety of Guangdong Province's proposed or existing gas pipelines.

Background

The Guangdong East Gas Pipeline Network was described in the 13th Provincial Energy Development Five-Year Plan (2016–2020). The network includes five pipelines: a LNG transport line, one major pipeline, one connecting pipeline, and two branches.[2] The proposed length of the full network was 539.8 kilometers, and the total estimated cost was 6.29 billion RMB.[2]

In Guangdong Province's 14th Five-Year Plan, pipeline systems were proposed with the goal of reaching every county in the province, though no specific pipelines were mentioned.

  • Contruction on the Huizhou–Haifeng Pipeline 惠州—海丰干线 segment began in July 2021.[3]
  • Construction on the Huizhou–Heyuan Branch 惠州—河源支干线 began in 2019.[4] Its source will be the imported LNG from the West-East Gas Pipeline 2, Huizhou LNG Terminal.
  • Construction of the Jieyang–Meizhou Branch 揭阳—梅州支干线 was completed in 2020.[5] Its source will be the West-East Gas Pipeline 2, Jieyang LNG Terminal.
  • Intended approval for the Haifeng–Huilai Connecting Pipeline 海丰—惠来联络线 was announced in December 2020.[6]

Network details

  • Operator: Guangdong Natural Gas Pipeline Co., Ltd. 广东省天然气管网有限公司[7]
  • Owner: PipeChina (49%), Guangdong Energy Group (28%), PipeChina East Oil Storage & Transportation Co., Ltd. 国家管网集团东部原油储运有限公司 (23%)[7]
  • Length: 539.8 kilometers[2]
  • Cost: 6.29 billion RMB[2]


Note the length of the entire network listed above, 529.8 kilometers, is less than that of the individual segments below combined. As of September 2021 there was not a clear explanation for this discrepancy.

Note the capacity of 0.30 billion cubic meters per year has been calculated using 8.64 x (10^4) cubic meters per day, according to the environmental impact assessment. A value of 350 days per year is used to get the total per year, and 350 days per year appears to be the standard unit in China's reports.[8]
