The construction of the 1,100 km long oil and natural gas pipelines between China and Myanmar is expected to be complete by May 2013. The pipelines that run from the port of Kyaukpyu on Myanmar’s west coast to Ruili in the Yunnan province of China will undergo pressure tests and a drying process in February 2013. The oil pipeline has an annual transport capacity of 22 million tonnes, while the natural gas pipeline will be able to transport 12 billion cubic metres annually.
