font size    

A press communique released by Kazakhstan Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources on Feb. 23 said that Kazakhstan is expected to export large quantity of crude oil to China through Atasu-Alashanko oil pipeline from May this year.

The communique said the completion and operation of Atasu-Alashanko oil pipeline last year marked the further development of Sino-Kazakhstan ties, and Kazakhstan will export large quantity of crude oil to China through the pipeline from May this year on.

The Atasu-Alashanko oil pipeline, started in September 2004, was completed and put into operation in Dec. 2005. It starts from Astana, Kazakhstan and ends in China's border city of Alashanko, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, covering a total length of 962.2 kilometres. The initial oil transport volume is designed at 10 million tons a year, and the future volume is expected to reach 20 million tons.
