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.

The Yunnan refined oil pipeline includes three trunk lines and one branch line. Namely, they include the Anning-Baoshan trunk line, the Anning-Mengzi trunk line, the Anning-Qujing trunk line and the Kunming branch line. The whole pipeline extends for nearly 1,000 kilometres and is capable of transmitting 7.21 million tons of refined oil annually. The three trunk lines were first put into operation in late 2017. They have cumulatively transmitted about 1.13 million tons of various oil products.

Upon its completion, the Kunming branch line will provide high-quality gasoline and diesel for central Yunnan while meeting more than 60 percent of kerosene demand from Kunming Changshui International Airport.
