As one of the major supplying sources for China's West-to-East Natural Gas Pipeline, the oilfield had played an important role in securing country's energy security in winter. The accumulative natural gas output of the oilfield in 2022 reached 30.3 billion cubic meters, 360 million cubic meters more than a year ago.

At present, 19 natural gas wells across the Tarim Oilfield are fully operational to supply natural gas to nearly 400 million people in about 120 Chinese cities scattered in 15 provinces and autonomous regions along the West-to-East Natural Gas Pipeline, said the Xinhua report.

And, the state broadcaster CCTV reported on Saturday that China's largest full-structure natural gas filed on land, Sulige natural gas field in North China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, exceeded daily gas output of 100 million cubic meters, which can meet daily natural gas consumption for 50 million households.

So far in 2022, 1,204 new natural gas wells were developed in the Sulige natural gas field, ramping up daily output by 16.25 million cubic meters. The accumulative natural gas output of the filed in 2022 has reached 28.68 billion cubic meters, and was estimated to hit the benchmark of 30 billion cubic meters at the end of 2022.
