Putin agreed to give a corresponding order.

Gazprom and CNPC signed a contract on supplies via the Sila Sibiri pipeline, or the eastern route, in 2014. Gazprom plans to provide China with 38 billion cubic meters of gas per year over 30 years through the pipeline. The company will start supplies via the pipeline with 5 billion cubic meters, and the facility will reach its full capacity in several years. First supplies of Russian gas through the pipeline started in December 2019.

Talks on Sila Sibiri-2 were suspended in February due to the coronavirus epidemic.
