Edited and translated by Zhao Guobing, People's Daily Online

Lhasa's first natural gas station, constructed by China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), went into operation on Oct.26, 2011.

According to the introduction, along with other two refueling stations — one of is being completed and the other under construction — this natural gas station will supply 30 million cubic meters of natural gas to Lhasa every year.

The new gas station will help Lhasa save 36,000 tons of standard coal, which means reducing emissions by 70,000 tons of carbon dioxide and 24,500 tons of dust. Thanks to this supply, one third of gas needed by Lhasa's residents, taxies, buses and economic and technical development zone has been provided.
