BEIJING, June 14 (Reuters) - China is ready to receive Russian crude oil after completing the construction of a 927-km crude oil pipeline to the border city of Mohe in the northeast, official news agency Xinhua reported on Monday.
The project is part of Russia’s Eastern Siberia-Pacific Ocean pipeline and is expected to start delivering oil to to refineries in Daqing in China’s Heilongjiang province in October this year, the report said.
The pipeline will eventually supply China with 15 million tonnes of crude oil a year.
