At the same time, a commercial inventory project of 5 million tons per year is under preparation.
There are three hazardous chemical delivery stations connecting Baotou-Lanzhou, Taiyuan-Zhongwei (Yinchuan) and other major railways which owned by the production base of BD Group in Ningxia. With the railway transportation capacity reaching 13 million tons per year, the base has planned to build a railway with an annual handling capacity of 3.8 million tons and a long-distance pipeline of 11 kilometers in Xinjiang production base.
There are 157 large-scale tank trucks for hazardous chemicals owned by Ningxia production base.
Based on China-Mongolia-Russia crude oil pipelines and the transnational railways, Erenhot production base in Inner Mongolia will carry out the “Russia-Mongolia-China” pipeline project. In the future, a 5 million cubic meters oil reserve warehouse and 200,000-ton gas storage project will be built, and at that time, the railway handling capacity will be 10 million tons per year, a gas pipeline transmission capacity will be 5 million standard cubic meters per year, and an oil pipeline transmission capacity will be 5 billion cubic meters per year.
