YUZHNO-SAKHALINSK, September 30. /TASS/. China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) expects the volume of gas supplies from Russia to China to reach 100 bln cubic meters, CNPC Deputy Director General at Policy Research Office Wang Zhen told journalists Wednesday.

According to the memorandum of understanding in cooperation in the field of natural gas signed on June 24, 2009, by Gazprom and CNPC, Russian gas will be delivered to China by two directions - western and eastern.
The eastern route involves the development of new fields in Eastern Siberia, firstly Chayanda field and Kovykta gas field. Power of Siberia gas pipeline is going to be built starting from these fields, which later will be connected with the gas pipeline Sakhalin - Khabarovsk - Vladivostok. Branch pipe to China will be built in near·· Blagoveshchensk
The western route includes the delivery of 30 bln cubic meters through the pipeline from the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous District through the Altai region to the northwest of China for 30 years.
On September 3 Gazprom and CNPC have signed a Memorandum of Understanding on natural gas supplies from Russia to China through the pipeline from the Far East. According to various estimates, its capacity could be from 25 to 38 bln cubic meters per year.
