1. Procurement has not yet commenced.

2. Contract of equipment and pipelines was awarded in Dec 2015. As per the EA's current plan, the installation of the contracted goods will be completed by the end of 2015. 30% of the lay down of heating transmission pipelines will be completed in 2015, 30% in 2016, 30% in 2017 and remaining 10% by May 2018.

3. Gaizhou: One out of three contracts (GZ-C03) under the sub-project was awarded in Dec 2013.

Benxi Waitoushan: In March 2014, LUCRPO and LDRC informed ADB of the cancellation of the subproject in Waitoushan Town (Benxi City) for Environmentally Sustainable Urban Infrastructure Development (rehabilitation and construction of roads and installation of stormwater and sewer pipes). The reason for this cancellation is lack of counterpart funding. LPG agencies have preliminarily identified a new subproject in Benxi City under the same Output 3, which was visited by ADB project team during the 2014 loan review mission . The proposed Subproject's Feasibility Study Report (FSR) was completed in September 2015. ADB will review once documents are ready for submission.

Xinmin: Five out of nine civil works contracts were awarded. Construction has started.

4. The loan implementation consultant has been recruited in November 2013. The project management consultants conducted initial training for subproject PMOs, the procurement agent, design institutes, supervision companies, and other relevant agencies on 11 November 2013. Topics covered ADB policies on safeguards and procurement as well as key control points of project management during the implementation phase.

Additional training was conducted in late July 2014 by the loan implementation consultant and LUCRPO on disbursement, PPMS, environment monitoring, land acquisition and resettlement and technical bidding document preparation.
