China Begins to Exploit Its Larger Gas Field

Asia Pulse
November 24, 2006

A plant that can process 1.5 billion cubic metres of natural gas per year has become the first to exploit China's largest gas field.

The Sulige Gas Field with a reserve of 533.6 billion cubic metres, the largest in China, lies in the Mu Us Desert of north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and was discovered in August 2000.

PetroChina Changqing Oilfield Company planned its exploitation for five years, company officials said.

The plant's daily output is expected to be 4.5 million cubic metres, enough for the daily use of six million households.

The officials said the field will supply north China, including Beijing, Tianjin, and Hebei Province.
