The Zhejiang provincial arm of China’s National Development and Reform Commission has signed a cooperation agreement with its counterpart in Shanghai that will allow regasified LNG to be piped from Shanghai to Zhejiang via PetroChina’s pipeline network, local media in Zhejiang reported on Tuesday.

Zhejiang has already received 140,000 cubic metres of regasified spot LNG from Shanghai through the pipeline, which has helped secure gas supplies in the province, according to Wang Jingjun, deputy director of the Zhejiang Energy Bureau.
