    The first oil pipeline linking the world's biggest oil producer, Russia, and the world's biggest consumer of energy, China, has begun operating.(...) Until now, Russian oil has been transported to China by rail.
    Russia overtook Saudi Arabia as the world's largest oil producer in 2009. China surpassed the US as the world's largest consumer of energy last year. (...) A second stage of construction on the pipeline is due to be finished by 2014. It will then span a distance of about 4,700 kms (2,900 miles).
