Power of Siberia pipeline comes online, carrying Russian gas to China.

2 Dec 2019

President Vladimir Putin and Chinese premier Xi Jinping officially opened the 3,000 kilometer gas pipeline today via videoconference.  Russian state gas giant Gazprom will immediately start sending its gas southwards — the first time Russian gas has been sent directly to China. The two countries struck a $400 billion 30-year agreement for Russian gas exports back in 2014. The pipeline will not become fully operational until 2025, when it will be able to carry 38 billion cubic meters of gas a year.
