ALMATY, Kazakhstan -- Annual gas exports from Kazakhstan to China are set to double in 2019, as Beijing moves to cushion the impact of its trade war with the U.S.

Kazakhstan is expected to send 10 billion cu. meters of gas China's way next year, up from 5 billion cu. meters, based on an agreement KazTransGas and PetroChina International signed on Oct. 12.
