Thus, Turkmenistan continues to be the leader among pipeline gas exporters to China.

In second place is Russia (1.65 billion US dollars), which is 2.9 times higher than the same indicator last year. Among other leading natural gas suppliers are Myanmar ($1.43 billion), Kazakhstan (US$1.08 billion) and Uzbekistan ($1.07 billion).

In February 2022, an agreement was reached on the construction of the fourth line of the gas pipeline from Turkmenistan to China. Its commissioning will allow Turkmenistan to increase the volume of annual natural gas supplies to the Celestial Empire.
