Russia Peerless in Oil & Gas Pipeline Addition Plans Reviewed by GlobalData
04 Sep 2012 • by Natalie Aster
As part of its bid to diversify its gas exports and decrease reliance on traditional transit countries, Russia will construct more pipeline than any other country in the world over the next few years, says the latest report by natural resources experts GlobalData.
During the period 2012-2016, the Eastern European nation will build a massive 14,053km of pipeline, accounting for 15% of the pipeline length to be constructed globally during this time, and a 63% share of the European total. The region with the greatest pipeline additions, however, is the Asia-Pacific, thanks to huge projects expected in India and Myanmar, among other countries. India will be responsible for 10,965km of additions by the end of 2016, which equates to approximately a quarter of the continent’s pipeline construction.
The new report, "Planned Oil and Gas Pipelines - Global Market Analysis, Competitive Landscape and Major Projects to 2016", states that the country’s vast pipeline additions will largely focus on finding new markets for its gas exports, while simultaneously bypassing traditional transit countries such as Ukraine, Belarus and Georgia.

Gas consumption in India is on the rise while production is declining. In response, the country is planning to boost imports and needs to develop its pipeline infrastructure to cope. Pipeline construction in Myanmar is in no small part due to China’s need to improve its oil and gas import routes. Two of the biggest planned projects in the region are the Myanmar-China oil pipeline and the Myanmar-China gas pipeline. The Myanmar-China gas pipeline has a transportation capacity of 423.60billion cubic feet (bcf) and is currently under construction, as is the Myanmar-China oil pipeline, which has a transportation capacity of 158.4 million barrels (MMbbl).
