The gas supply station in southern Sichuan, as branch of Zhongwei-Guiyang Pipeline under Central Asia Natural Gas, began to provide gas for Sichuan and Chongqing on July 17. The longstanding problem of short supply will be completely solved with increasing gas volume. After the interconnection between the nationwide network and gas pipeline network of Sichuan & Chongqing, stability and security of gas supply will gain a substantial improvement.
CNPC invested 7 billion yuan to build this Zhongwei-Guiyang Pipeline in order to erase the contradiction between demand and supply and boost the development of society and economy in Sichuan & Chongqing area. The Pipeline, 1,613 kilometers long, runs from Zhongwei, Ningxia, through Gansu, Shaanxi, Sichuan, and Chongqing, to its terminal Guiyang with the gas supply capacity of 15 billion m3 /y.
