Read more about it: A huge Siberian pipeline binds Russia and China, as gas flows for the first time
An excerpt from Washington Post
"In China, the pipeline will run 3,175 miles from Heilongjiang province in the northeast to Shanghai. The pipeline posed an engineering challenge, traversing swamps, rocky mountains, areas prone to earthquakes and regions of permafrost where the temperature fell to minus-50 degrees Celsius (minus-58 degrees Fahrenheit) last winter.
Gazprom chief executive Alexey Miller said 10,000 workers took part in the construction of the pipeline, which used 130,000 pipes.
“Deliveries of Russian gas to China by pipeline will raise Russian-Chinese strategic energy cooperation to a qualitatively new level and bring the goal of increasing bilateral trade turnover to $200 billion in 2024 closer to being realized,” Putin said, speaking in Sochi, Russia. “More than a trillion cubic meters of gas will be delivered to China through the Power of Siberia pipeline over 20 years.” Xi said the pipeline was a milestone in energy cooperation that underscored the deep integration between the two countries.
