The daily output of gas has reached 99 percent of its full capacity before the quake, the Beijing-based company said in a statement.

PetroChina has pledged 100,000 tons of emergency oil supplies to the province and had sent 83,300 tons by Monday, according to the statement. The company also said it so far had resumed fuel supply among all gas stations in the province.

The 8.0-magnitude quake that struck southwest China's Sichuan Province on May 12 had killed 34,073 and injured 245,108 others as of noon on Monday.

A primary investigation showed that 14,207 industrial enterprises suffered 67 billion yuan of direct economic loss in the calamity, Vice Minister of Industry and Information Technology Xi Guohua said on Monday.
