Central Asia-China gas pipeline to hit maximum capacity - PetroChina

BEIJING, Nov 12 (Reuters) -

* China oil major PetroChina says the Central Asia-China gas pipeline will supply 160 million cubic metres of gas per day this winter, its highest ever level

* The pipeline will be operating at 100 percent utilisation rate, said the company on its website on Monday

* The announcement comes as China prepares to start up winter heating across the north from Nov. 15

* Demand for gas in China surged last year leading to a shortage of supply, after a government push to switch household heating systems to gas from coal

* The pipeline accounts for about 25 percent of China’s oil and gas pipeline network, it said

* The Central Asia-China pipeline bring natural gas from Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan to China
