Trans-Asia Gas Pipeline signs with Tajiktransgaz for Line D

Trans-Asia Gas Pipeline Co. signed with Tajiktransgaz to establish a company to manage construction of Line D of the Central Asia-China Gas Pipeline.

The agreement was signed Mar. 4 in Dushanbe, Tajikistan. Trans-Asia Gas is a subsidiary of China National Petroleum Corp.

Feasibility studies have been completed and construction of the Takijistan section of Line D is expected to start this year.

The Chinese government in September 2013 signed intergovernmental agreements on Line D with Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan. Preparations for Line D began after the signing of a gas supply agreement in 2011 between China and Turkmenistan.

CNPC said 80 billion cu m/year of gas will be transported from Central Asia to China after construction of Line A/B/C/D and auxiliary facilities in China are completed.
