Russia's state-controlled gas giant Gazprom has inked a second long-term gas supply agreement with China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) with the goal of delivering up to 10 billion cubic metres of gas to the northeastern part of the country.

Though Gazprom has provided no details on the contract, Reuters quoted sources in Beijing as saying the arrangement will be valid for 30 years, with first deliveries to flow as early as the start of 2025.
