Turkmenistan Boosting Gas Deliveries to China

Turkmenistan will significantly boost gas deliveries to China following talks with Chinese President Hu Jintao, the country's president said Friday.

Turkmenistan said last year that a 7,000-kilometer gas pipeline to China would be completed by 2009.

In recent years, energy-hungry China has faced growing competition from Russia and Europe for access to Central Asia's oil and gas reserves.
