Hose 9.7 km long, East 1-1 at 80 degrees Celsius, pressure 10 MPA at high temperature and high pressure gas transmission to near the gas field. Oriental 1-1 ODP was originally designed using 12-inch-diameter metal pipe as a pipeline, but in the pipeline of large pipe laying vessels laying, slow and expensive.
