China's CNPC starts third natural gas pipeline to Shanghai
BEIJING (Reuters) — China National Petroleum Corporation has started operating the third natural gas pipeline into Shanghai, looking to boost supply of the clean fuel to the city of more than 24 MM people.
The 88-km line connects a coastal LNG terminal in Rudong, in Jiangshu province, with Shanghai's Chongming island, CNPC said on Friday in statement on its website.
The line has an annual capacity of 1.84 Bcm of gas, said CNPC, which also operates the other two gas pipelines into Shanghai.
