China National Petroleum Corp.’s Xinjiang Oilfield subsidiary started work last week on upgrading the gas-gathering and transmission system at the Kelameili gas field in the Xinjiang region’s Junggar Basin, the official People’s Daily reported on Wednesday.

The upgrade will boost Kelameili’s output from 3 million cubic metres per day (MMcm/d) to 3.4-3.5 MMcm/d when completed in Q3 2019.
