Radio Australia - News - US company signs deal with China to build gas pipeline

US-based General Electric has won a $US196 million bid to help build China's West-East Gas Pipeline.

The Xinhua news agency says GE's oil and gas division has signed an agreement with the West-East Gas Pipeline Company, which will involve GE providing gas turbines, compressors, installation and testing services to 12 newly-built compressor stations along the pipeline.

The equipment is expected to be delivered and installed from 2006 to 2009.

The pipeline will transport natural gas from the Tarim Basin of northwest China's Xinjiang region to the eastern coastal metropolis Shanghai.
