At seven o'clock pm on August 30, No. 0 diesel oil transmitted from Anning, the starting point of the Yunnan refined oil pipeline, arrived at Kunming. After 32 hours of 'travel', this achievement marked the completion of an important support project associated with the China-Myanmar crude oil pipeline and the Yunnan refinery and chemical plant.

The Kunming branch line of the Yunnan oil pipeline has a total length of 80.9 kilometres and is expected to transmit 1.68 million tons of refined oil every year.

Namely, they include the Anning-Baoshan trunk line, the Anning-Mengzi trunk line, the Anning-Qujing trunk line and the Kunming branch line.
