Gazprom Reports Higher Power of Siberia Flows
Russian gas flows to China via the Power of Siberia pipeline exceeded the contractual volume on October 19 for the first time, by 20%, Gazprom's export arm reported on the same day.
Power of Siberia has been pumping gas from the Chayandinskoye gas field since December 2019. It is due to deliver 5bn m3/year of gas this year, or around 13.7mn m3/day, under Gazprom's 2014 supply contract with China's CNPC. Gazprom pumped 2.3bn m3 via the pipeline in the first eight months of 2020.
Shipments are due to ramp up to 38bn m3/yr by 2025, by which point Chayandinskoye will be joined by another field Kovyktinskoye.
