The first compressor station in Khorgos, in northwestern Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, was put into construction on July 22, 2008, marking the start of the construction of the second West-to-East Gas Pipeline Project.

The second West-to-East Gas Pipeline Project is the largest pipeline project in the world.
With a designed gas transmission capacity of 30 billion cubic meters annually, and a total length of 9,100 kilometers, it begins in Khorgos Port in Xinjiang, and traverses 14 provinces, autonomous regions and cities before reaching East China's Shanghai, South China's Guangdong Province and Hong Kong.

Currently the project is developing smoothly. At the end of 2009, it will carry natural gas from Turkmenistan.

The compressor station in Khorgos is the first project put into construction under the second West-to-East Gas Pipeline Project, as well as the first compressor station linked with central Asia's pipeline.
