The gas supply growth to China will be achieved after launch of the third line of Uzbek part of the Central Asia-China gas pipeline. The project will be completed by the end of 2014.

The Uzbek part of the third line of the pipeline with the cost of US$2.2 billion was launched in 2015. It is planned that the pipeline will reach its full designed capacity of 55 billion cubic meters of gas in 2015.

The capacity of new line of the pipeline is 25 billion cubic meters a year and it will transport gas mined in Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan to China.

At the end of 2011, Uztransgaz and China’s PetroChina International Company Ltd (division of CNPC) signed a contract on supply of gas on current international market prices in the end of 2011. Uzbekistan started to supply gas to China in August 2012.
