On January 30, the Myanmar section of the Myanmar-China Oil Pipeline jointly invested and built by CNPC and Myanmar Oil and Gas Enterprise (MOGE) was put into trial operation, and the Port of Maday Island was officially opened.

The pipeline starts at Maday Island in Kyaukphyu, Rakhine State, on the west coast of Myanmar, and runs 771km through Rakhine State, Magway Region, Mandalay Region and Shan State before entering into China at Ruili, Yunnan Province. The pipeline is designed to transport 22 million tons of crude per annum, with the pipe diameter of 813mm.

Maday Island is located at the southeastern part of Kyaukphyu. The Port of Maday Island consists of a 300Kt crude oil terminal, a workship dock, a 650,000 cubic meter water tank, a 38km-long channel, and a 1.2 million cubic meter oil tank farm. A 300Kt oil tanker has moored at the port and began to unload crude from the Middle East.

Myanmar Vice President U Nyan Tun, China's ambassador to Myanmar Yang Houlan, Myanmar Energy Minister U Zay Ya Aung, and CNPC President Liao Yongyuan attended the port’s pre-opening ceremony in Yangon on January 28.
