CNPC completes SNG pipeline in Xinjiang

China National Petroleum Corp. finished construction of its Yining-Horgos natural gas pipeline, designed to move coal-based synthetic natural gas (SNG) from Yining, Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, to Zhejiang. Yining-Horgos is linked to the Third West-East Gas Pipeline project (WEPP III).

CNPC subsidiary China Petroleum Engineering Co. Ltd. built the 64-km, 48-in. OD pipeline, which it describes as the first large-diameter SNG pipeline in China. The pipeline has a design pressure of 12 MPa, and an estimated capacity of 30 billion cu m/year.

The Yining-Horgos pipeline sources its SNG largely from Yili, Xinjiang, and allows it to be shipped to south-central China and the country’s southeastern coastal region.

Dart Energy Ltd., Brisbane, is exploring for coalbed methane southeast of Urumqi, Xinjiang, as CNPC’s partner (OGJ Online, Sept. 8, 2011).
