Oil to China

The state owned Transneft oil pipe line built on permafrost soil is under construction through the boreal forest outside Iengra. Russia is currently the worlds biggest producer of oil and with the help of the new pipeline stretching thousands of kilometres from Siberia to China they will export enormous amounts of oil to the largest oil consumer on earth. Over 300,000 barrels a day will rush through this section of forest.
