Work on the Xinjiang branch of the West-to-East Natural Gas Pipeline Project began in the town of Sangong, Changji city, on Oct 16. The section of the Natural Gas Pipeline Project that runs from Korgas to Urumqi, the capital of Xinjiang, is expected to go into operation by the end of 2012, so there will be an abundant amount of natural gas, making Urumqi China’s first capital with comprehensive “gasification”.

When the gas pipeline project is finished, it will add 30 billion cubic meters of natural gas to the country’s supply and benefit hundreds of millions of people. The main gas suppliers are Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Kazakhstan, with Xinjiang coal gas as a supplementary. The new central-Asian natural gas brings in 25 billion cubic meters per year, along with the Yili Valley’s 5 billion in coal gas.

The gas pipeline project uses waste heat technology to save energy and makes use of existing facilities to save land resources. In addition, the project will use internal coating technology to help save the equivalent of 38,370 tons of standard coal.
