The large supply deal that will send natural gas from Russia to China beginning in 2018 is significant in many ways. The deal, reportedly for 38 billion cubic meters (bcm) per year (or about 3.7 billion cubic feet (bcf) per day) at a price of $350 per mcm (or $9.90 per mcf), should put Russia in a very competitive situation to capture market share in a growing Chinese domestic natural gas market.
