    Russian energy giant Gazprom and China's CNPC have signed an agreement on the design and construction of the cross-border section of the Power of Siberia gas pipeline, a RIA Novosti correspondent reported Thursday.

    BEIJING (Sputnik) — The part of the pipeline also includes the underwater passage through the Amur river.

    In May 2014, Moscow and Beijing signed a historic 30-year gas contract worth $400 billion to transfer 38 billion cubic meters of gas annually from Russia to China through the Power of Siberia gas transmission system.
