Chinese – Turkmen Energy Ties

As reported by Energy Daily, the president of energy-rich Turkmenistan recently pledged to significantly boost gas deliveries to China following talks with Chinese President Hu Jintao.  As the article notes:

“…Each year the future gas pipeline will deliver not 30 billion cubic meters, as before, but 40 billion cubic meters of gas,” Turmenistan President Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov told journalists after the meeting with Hu.

Turkmenistan said last year that a new 7,000-kilometre (4,350-mile) gas pipeline to China would be completed by 2009.

In recent years, energy-hungry China has faced growing competition from Russia and Europe for access to Central Asia’s oil and gas reserves.”
