BEIJING - China's third West-to-East gas pipeline is expected to become operational by the end of 2013 and will carry about 30 billion cubic meters (bcm) of gas annually, mainly from Central Asia to southeastern China's Fujian province, a company source said on Wednesday.

The 5,200 kilometer (km) project will include one artery, six branch lines, three gas storage facilities and a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal, the source said, adding that the pipeline will run from the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region to the city of Fuzhou in Fujian province.

Work on pipelines four and five will be initiated sometime after 2015. Each pipeline will have an annual transmission capacity of about 30bcm and support the supply of gas to the country's industrialized coastal regions, the source said.
