Oil pipeline to ensure supply
Adjust font size:

An oil transmission pipeline circling Beijing will go into operation at the end of this month and is expected to ensure stable supply for the Olympic host city.

The pipeline, designed with an annual transport capacity of 2.85 million tons, will provide 70 percent of the city's oil supply, Sunday's Beijing Morning Post cited Zhu Wangyou, spokesman of Sinopec Beijing branch.

The 183-kilometer pipeline, the country's first around-the-city pipeline, links five key oil depots along the six-ring road with Sinopec's Yanshan refinery in southwestern Beijing.

The pipeline would make oil transport more stable and efficient, which was usually hampered by adverse weather, said Zhu.

Meanwhile, a 129-kilometer aviation kerosene pipeline is being built on the same route, which is expected to channel 1.2 million tons of aviation kerosene from the Yanshan refinery to the Beijing Capital International Airport.
