Lanzhou-Chengdu Crude Pipeline completed

The 880 km long Lanzhou-Chengdu Crude Pipeline, which extends from China’s Western Crude Pipeline terminal in Lanzhou, Gansu Province, to Pengzhou terminal station in Sichuan Province, running through Gansu, Shaanxi and Sichuan provinces, is now completed.

The 24 inch diameter pipeline is capable of delivering 10 MMt/a of crude and has been designed with a maximum pressure of 13.4MPa, and a hydraulic head of 2,207 m. It is currently has the highest pipe pressure and largest hydraulic head in China, and is considered ‘one-of-a-kind’.

As a major part of the energy channel in northwestern China, the Lanzhou-Chengdu Crude Pipeline will play an important role in improving China’s petrochemical infrastructure, promoting the development of local economy and relevant industries, and stimulating oil production growth in Xinjiang.
