KazTransGas To Build 311-Mile Gas Pipeline

April 2014, Vol. 241 No. 4

KazTransGas signed an agreement for a $700 million loan from China to expand a pipeline to boost gas exports to its neighbor.

Reuters reports, the 15-year loan will be used to complete a second, 311-km stretch of a pipeline from southern Kazakhstan and would transport extra volumes of gas to China via the already existing Kazakhstan-China pipeline.
