The oil reached Ruili, a city of Yunnan Province bordering Myanmar, at 4 p.m., according to the CNPC.

It will continue to flow through the pipe at a speed of about 50 kilometers per day for 650 km before reaching the city of Anning where the CNPC's Yunnan petrochemical branch is located.

The branch has a designed processing capacity of 13 million tons per year.

The 1,420-km long cross-border pipeline is a part of the China-Myanmar oil and gas pipeline project.

The project, which comprises a crude oil pipeline and a gas pipeline, is a state-operated collaboration between China, Myanmar and international commercial partners.
