The Shenmu-Anping pipeline, China’s longest coal bed methane pipeline, has begun its trial operation, as informed by China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC Group). The CNOOC Group is China’s largest offshore driller.
The gas pipeline will strengthen the gas supply capacity of the Shanxi and Shaanxi provinces. It will also further ensure the natural gas supply in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, the CNOOC Group said.
The pipeline starts from Shenmu, Yulin city of Shanxi province and ends at Anping county, Hengshui city of Hebei province. The total length of the pipeline is approximately 623 km, with a designed gas transmission capacity of 5 billion cubic meters per annum, it said.
CNOOC informed that the gas pipeline will effectively release the production capacity of upstream projects, help to maximize the resource value of the two unconventional natural gas production bases in the Qinshui Basin and the eastern edge of the Erdos Basin and strongly support the natural gas supply in North China.
