Reuters quoted China oil major PetroChina as saying that the Central Asia-China gas pipeline will supply 160 million cubic metres of gas per day this winter, its highest ever level. The pipeline will be operating at 100 percent utilisation rate, said the company on its website. The announcement comes as China prepares to start up winter heating across the north from November 15

It said that demand for gas in China surged last year leading to a shortage of supply, after a government push to switch household heating systems to gas from coal. The pipeline accounts for about 25 percent of China's oil and gas pipeline network.

It added that the Central Asia-China pipeline bring natural gas from Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan to China.
