«The Power of Siberia (Russian: Сила Сибири) pipeline (formerly known as Yakutia–Khabarovsk–Vladivostok pipeline) is a natural gas pipeline under construction in Eastern Siberia to transport Yakutia’s gas to Primorsky Krai and Far East countries.
The pipeline is expected to cost 770 billion roubles and the investment in the gas production is 430 billion roubles. It is expected to be operational by 2019. Capacity of the 56-inch (1,400 mm) pipeline would be up to 61 billion cubic metres per annum (2.2×1012 cu ft/a) of natural gas. 38 billion cubic metres per annum (1.3×1012 cu ft/a) would be supplied to China. The pipeline’s working pressure is 9.8 megapascals (1,421 psi).
The pipeline will be able to withstand temperatures as low as -62 °C (-79.6 °F). Nanocomposite coatings manufactured and engineered by JSC Metaclay will be used to increase the lifetime of the pipeline. Furthermore, the pipeline will be able to withstand earthquakes by incorporating materials that will deform under seismic activity. Internal coatings ensure energy efficiency by reducing the friction of the pipeline’s inner surfaces. The mass of all the pipes used to construct the pipeline is greater than 2.5 megatons
A 3,200-kilometre (2,000 mi) section of the pipeline will start from the Chayanda oil and gas field in Yakutia. It will partly run within an integrated corridor with the second stage of Eastern Siberia-Pacific Ocean oil pipeline. In Khabarovsk, it will be connected with the Sakhalin–Khabarovsk–Vladivostok pipeline. Together, these pipelines will feed a planned LNG plant, which will produce liquefied natural gas for export to Japan, and a planned petrochemical complex in Primorsky Krai. Branches toward Northern China are envisaged.
In addition, the project includes 800-kilometre (500 mi) pipeline from Irkutsk to Yakutia.» [Fonte]

Il contratto trentennale di fornitura di gas naturale alla Cina mette la Russia nella condizione di essere indipendente dalle forniture verso l’Occidente. Se ci sono, è guadagno ulteriore, ma senza non si muore certo di fame.
Occidente che peraltro sta ricambiando la Russia mettendole addosso delle sanzioni economiche.
MOSCOW, Nov 1 (PRIME) — Russian gas giant Gazprom has increased its 2017 investment plan for construction of Sila Sibiri (Power of Siberia) natural gas pipeline by 32% to 209.8 billion rubles and cut investment in the Nord Stream-2 pipeline by 8 billion rubles to 102.4 billion rubles, as seen by PRIME in materials of the company on Wednesday.
The company also doubled the investment plan for the TurkStream natural gas pipeline to 92.8 billion rubles in the year, and raised the plan for the Ukhta-Torzhok-2 pipeline by 30.7% to 81.2 billion rubles.
In October, Gazprom’s board of directors increased the company’s 2017 investment plan to 1.1 trillion rubles from 911 billion rubles.
In 2014, Gazprom and China’s CNPC signed a contract, which envisages that gas supplies via the eastern route, or the Sila Sibiri pipeline, would begin in 2019. Gazprom plans to provide China with 38 billion cubic meters gas per year over 30 years. The company will start supplies via the pipeline with 5 billion cubic meters of gas, and the pipeline will reach its full capacity in several years.
The Nord Stream-2 project envisages construction of two lines of a natural gas pipeline with an annual capacity of up to 55 billion cubic meters, running from the Russian shore to Germany under the Baltic Sea. Russian gas giant Gazprom plans to implement the project together with Uniper, Wintershall, Royal Dutch Shell, Austria’s OMV, and France’s Engie. The Ukhta–Torzhok-2 pipe will be built as an extension of the Northwestern corridor of Russia’s unified gas system in preparation for construction of the Nord Stream-2 export gas pipeline.
The TurkStream pipeline will consist of two branches with a length of over 900 kilometers and a capacity of 15.75 billion cubic meters each. One of them, to be finished in 2018, is to carry Russian gas to Turkey, while the other is to transit gas to European countries through Turkey and is to be finished in 2019.
La compagnia russa Gazprom prevede di costruire più di 1.300 chilometri del gasdotto Sila Sibiri entro la fine del 2017. Lo ha dichiarato l’amministratore delegato e presidente della società, Aleksej Miller, secondo il quale è stata realizzato più di metà del percorso effettivo dell’infrastruttura: “1.120 chilometri sono già stati costruiti”. “Entro la fine dell’anno, circa 1.340 chilometri di gasdotto saranno costruiti”, ha dichiarato Miller, secondo quanto riferito dall’agenzia di stampa russa “Rns”. La lunghezza totale del gasdotto sarà di circa 3 mila chilometri. Il gas proveniente dai giacimenti della Siberia orientale (Chajandinskoe in Yakutia; e Kovykta nella regione di Irkutsk) sarà destinato sia al mercato nazionale che all’esportazione in Cina. Negli ultimi colloqui di inizio luglio, Gazprom e la società cinese Cnpc avevano concordato di iniziare le forniture entro il mese di dicembre del 2019. Il contratto fra le due società prevede una fornitura di 38 miliardi di metri cubi di gas all’anno per i prossimi 30 anni.
