China’s Second Gas Pipeline Starts Services in Shenzhen

China's Second Gas Pipeline Starts Services in ShenzhenThe second west to east natural gas pipeline started servicing Shenzhen yesterday and will be able to provide the city with 4 billion cubic meters of natural gas a year. The natural gas will can help Shenzhen cut down on its carbon dioxide emissions by more than 7 million tons a year.

A two month trial period was done on the pipeline and during this period the gas supplied by the pipeline ranged from 2 million to 4 million cubic meters in a day, which is around 70 percent of the city’s total gas supply. The pipelines will be carrying gas from Turkmenistan through a pumping dtation in Quiyuling, Guanlan in the Longhua New Area.

The pipeline extends 8,600 kilometers from Xinjiang to Guangdong and Hong Kong. The price for natural gas for household and residential use will not change with the addition of the new pipeline and price for industrial use will drop slightly. The National Development and Reform Commission have set a ceiling price for the natural gas last December at 2.74 yuan per cubic meter. The new price is now set at 3.5 yuan per cubic meter.
