With over 100 bln cu m of proven reserves, Daniudi Gas Filed, in north China's Erdos Basin, which straddles Shanxi Province and the autonomous region of Inner Mongolia, is expected to begin operation in September, a source with Huabei Company, a Sinopec subsidiary, confirmed to Interfax. 

The main projects in the gas field includes the core part of No. 2 Terminal of the 138-km-long Dahang Pipeline from Daniudi County to Hangjinqi, all of which are now under full construction by Sinopec's five construction subsidiaries and two supervision branches, according to the source. 

With investment of RMB 200 mln (USD 24.15 mln), Dahang pipeline began construction in June, and No. 2 Terminal began construction on July 6, marking the full start of the on-land construction at the field. 

As Interfax previously reported, Daniudi Gas Field, located in the Tabamiao Block of northern Erdos, is the key gas source in Sinopec's strategy to supply the whole of east China's Shandong Province in the future. The uncovered reserves in the field are predicted to reach 250 bln cu m. 

Huabei Company, Sinopec's leading upstream prospecting enterprise, began prospecting activities in the field in 2002.
