Russia–China East Line Domestic Extension 中俄东线天然气管道 is a natural gas pipeline under construction in China. The first phase of 1067 kilometers was completed in December 2019.[1]

Location

The entire pipeline (Phases I, II, and III) runs from Heihe, Heilongjiang to Shanghai, China.[2].

Project details

The pipeline is described in three phases, and is ultimately expected to be 5111 kilometers in length[3] and deliver 38 billion cubic meters per year.[4]

Note in the pipeline tracker documentation, the three phases below do not sum to 5111, so a primary pipeline is added to account for the additional 1425 kilometers.

Phase I (Heihe to Changling)

  • Owner: PipeChina[5]
  • Capacity: 38 billion cubic meters per year[6]
  • Diameter: 1422 millimeters[4]
  • Length: 1067 kilometers[6]
  • Status: Operating[2]
  • Start year: 2019[3]

Phase II (Changling to Yongqing)

  • Owner: PipeChina[5]
  • Capacity: 38 billion cubic meters per year[7]
  • Diameter: 1422 millimeters[4]
  • Length: 1110 kilometers[7]
  • Status: Operating[7][3]
  • Start year: 2020[3]

Phase III (Yongqing to Shanghai)

  • Owner: PipeChina[5]
  • Capacity: 38 billion cubic meters per year[7]
  • Diameter: 1509 millimeters[8]
  • Length: 1480 kilometers[9]
  • Status: Construction[9][8]
  • Start year: 2023

Background

The pipeline's source is the Power of Siberia Gas Pipeline. In October 2020, ownership of the pipeline was transferred from CNPC to PipeChina.[5]

Construction for Phase I began in June 2015.[6] Once all phases are complete, the plan is to supply 38 billion cubic meters per year of natural gas by 2023.[6]

In January 2021, it was reported that Phases I and II were operating, and that Phase III was under construction.[3]
