Winter season ends at PetroChina’s Hutubi gas storage facility

By Staff reporter 17 March 2017

PetroChina has reported that its underground gas storage depot in Hutubi in Xinjiang finished supplying gas on 10 March, marking the end of its output for the 2016-2017 winter heating season.

The depot provided 3.3 billion cubic metres in total during the four-month period, with supply peaking at 16.27 million cubic metres per day for 50 days at the start of December.

It will start storing gas for this year’s heating season after maintenance is finished at the end of this month.
