The Tarim Oilfield in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region has sent more than 200 billion cubic meters of natural gas to eastern China over the past 13 years.

The oil field's annual pipeline gas supply to eastern China grew from 351 million cubic meters in 2004 to more than 21.1 billion cubic meters in 2017, benefiting 400 million people and 3,000 enterprises in more than 120 cities, according to the Tarim Oilfield company.

As one of China's largest natural gas producers, the Tarim field has been a key provider for a 4,000-km pipeline project bringing natural gas from west to east.

In 2017, the Tarim field reported a total natural gas output of about 25.3 billion cubic meters.

Meanwhile, its annual production of petroleum liquids hit 5.2 million tonnes, said the company.

Tarim's natural gas reserves accounted for 22 percent of the total natural gas reserves across China.
