Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov has said the pipeline designed to transport Turkmenistan's natural gas to China would go into operation as scheduled, according to news reports from Ashgabat Friday.

Berdymukhamedov made the remarks Thursday when inspecting the pipeline project, Turkmenistan's state news agency reported.

Turkmenistan and China, with their leaders in closer contacts over the past years, have expressed their willingness to broaden mutually-beneficial cooperation, especially in the energy field, he said.

The pipeline will bring substantial economic benefits for the two countries, as well as the whole region, the president added.

In June, China and Turkmenistan jointly launched the pipeline project. The pipeline, starting from Turkmenistan's Amu-darya River region, passing through Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan and winding its way to east and south China, has a designed length of some 10,000 km.

Upon its completion, the pipeline will have an annual transmission capacity of 40 billion cubic meters which will last for 30 years.
