Construction of an additional line of the Central Asia-China gas pipeline completes

Additional line «D» of the Central Asia-China gas pipeline in the territory of Tajikistan will be commissioned into operation in 2020.

The gas pipeline with a length of 966 km will pass from Turkmenistan to China and its Tajik sector is the longest one and makes up more than 400 kilometers. Taking into account the mountainous landscape of the locality, it is the most difficult part of the main pipeline under which almost 9, 5 thousand hectares of land was allocated.

Now three lines of the given gas pipeline – «A», «B» and «C», passing by the route Turkmenistan-Uzbekistan-Kazakhstan-China already function.

The governmental agreement on the construction of the gas pipeline through Tajikistan was signed in 2013 and 10 months later between CNPC and JSC “Tadzhiktransgaz” the contract on joint venture creation for construction and operation of the gas pipeline Trans-Tajik Gas Pipeline Company Ltd was concluded.

The building of the site itself started in September, 2014. It is expected that after completion of works, annually from Turkmenistan to China more than 65 billion cubic meters of natural gas will be exported.
