China is currently receiving 96 million cubic meters of gas per day via pipeline from Turkmenistan, translating into 35.04 billion cubic meters annually, state-owned China National Petroleum Corp said Tuesday on its website.

Gas sales to China started in late 2009 under a 30-year, 30 Bcm/year deal agreed between CNPC and Turkmengaz.

The two companies have since then agreed to boost China’s imports of Turkmen gas to 40 Bcm/year by 2015 and 65 Bcm/year by 2020.

CNPC said the current daily gas offtake from the Central Asian country is a 26.3% increase from the same time last year and 93% of the 20 million cu m/day incremental supply has come from its own Amu Darya gas project on the right bank of the Amu Darya river.
