Russian gas pipeline to China through Mongolia to be completed in 2023

AKIPRESS.COM - The designing of the Soyuz Vostok gas pipeline to China via Mongolia should be completed next year, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Victoria Abramchenko told journalists following a meeting of an intergovernmental commission with Mongolia, Interfax reported.

"The completion [of the designing] is scheduled for next year. We are supposed to ensure clearance by the three states," Abramchenko said.

Gazprom started to assess the possibility for supplying up to 50 billion cubic meters of gas per year to China via Mongolia in 2020. Design and surveying as part of the Soyuz Vostok trunk pipeline project began in February 2022. The pipeline is to go through Mongolian territory and will be a continuation of the Power of Siberia 2 pipeline.
