China National Petroleum Corp. (CNPC), the country's largest producer of gas, signed a memorandum of understanding with Russian energy giant Gazprom in late March. The two agreed that from 2018 to 2048 Gazprom would send 38 billion cubic meters of natural gas annually through a pipeline into China.
