The Petro Vietnam oil and gas corporation has put to operation a new 47-kilometre underwater gas pipeline.
The pipeline was constructed by Vietnamese specialists with the help of Russian experts from the Russo-Vietnamese Vietsovpetro joint venture.
The pipeline has been designed to transport associated gas produced by the Vietnamese-Japanese joint venture at the Aurora deposit to the main pipeline belonging to the Russo-Vietnamese Vietsovpetro company. The latter transports gas to the Fumi-1 power plant and a gas refinery located in the Baria-Vung Tau province.
The price of the underwater pipeline's design and construction reached the level of about 50 mln. dollars.
The strike was defensive in nature and came in response to three attacks on the US military in February
