A decision to push ahead with gas and oil pipelines connecting Myanmar to China will see construction kick off next month.
A 2,800 km, 1.2bn cubic feet a day (cf/d) pipeline will carry gas from Myanmar, or further afield, to Kunming, in Yunnan province, and on to Nanning, in Guanxi region. A 1,100 km, 400,000 barrels a day (b/d) crude pipeline will run from a port in Burma's Rakhine state to Guizhou and Chongqing, through Kunming, providing a new route for supplies from the Middle East and Africa.
