CNPC & GAZPROM AGREEMENT
Gazprom said "special attention" will be paid to the crossing under the Amur River. The Russian section is known as the Power of Siberia gas pipeline and the Chinese section is known as the Eastern Route.
CNPC said the entire pipeline project is expected to be completed and operational by the end of 2018. Construction of the Chinese section began in June 2015, while construction of the Russian section began in September 2014.
CNPC also signed an investment agreement on Dec. 16 for construction of the 215-km Kyrgyzstan section of Line D of the Central Asia-China gas pipeline.
The company said technical standards and specifications will be determined for design and construction, "and the Kyrgyz Government will provide support to ensure the smooth progress of the project."

THE LOCAL FRANCE - Angola and French oil giant Total formally launched a major new offshore oil project Saturday to aid the country's economy that plunged into crisis following oil price dips in 2014.
WNN - China's State Power Investment Corporation (SPIC) says it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for "global cooperation" in nuclear energy with Westinghouse Electric Company of the USA.
WNN - Advanced Nuclear Technologies - otherwise known as small nuclear or small reactor technologies - encompass a wide range of nuclear reactor technologies under development, BEIS noted. "The common attributes that these technologies share is that they are smaller than conventional nuclear power station reactors and are designed so that much of the plant can be fabricated in a factory environment and transported to site, reducing construction risk and making them less capital-intensive," it said.
WNN - Poland and the USA have signed a Joint Declaration of Energy Security, which emphasises the expansion of their cooperation in a variety of areas, including civil nuclear energy. The document was signed in Warsaw yesterday by Polish Energy Minister Krzysztof Tchórzewski and US Secretary of Energy Rick Perry.
