China Halts All Oil Imports from US Amid Escalating Trade War
TEHRAN (FNA)- America’s second-largest oil client, China, completely stopped buying crude from the United States as trade tensions between the world’s two largest economies continue to grow. While oil has not been included on the list of bilateral tariffs, Chinese refiners have been staying away from buying crude from the US.

“We are one of the major carriers for crude oil from the US to China. Before [the trade war] we had a nice business, but now it’s totally stopped,” Xie Chunlin, the president of CMES, said on the sidelines of the Global Maritime Forum’s Annual Summit in Hong Kong, as quoted by Reuters.

“It’s unfortunately happened, the trade war between the US and China. Surely for the shipping business, it’s not good,” the CMES president stated.

He added that the trade war was also forcing China to diversify its soybean supplies. Beijing is now buying most of its soybeans from South America.

China’s crude oil imports from America reached an average of 334,880 barrels per day through August, making Beijing the second-largest buyer of US oil after Canada.

In fact, China may be the largest buyer of American crude since much of the oil imported by Canada is re-exports – Canadian crude that briefly crosses into the US on pipelines before re-entering Canada. After ending a 40-year ban on oil exports in late 2015, the US has ramped up sales to two million barrels per day (bpd).

China buys most of its crude from Russia, with imports soaring from 665,000 bpd in 2014 to 1.2 million bpd last year. Beijing’s other major suppliers are Saudi Arabia and Iran.

日本の原油輸入先は、最近年次では、サウジ40%、UAE24%、カタール、クウエート計15%、イラン5%などで米国はごくわずか。イランからの輸入を止めるだろうからその分が米国に振り替わるだろうか。

偉大なる戦士トランプ大統領が始められた米中貿易戦争は、ますますエスカレートしています。米国の売国奴だらけの低脳の日本と違い、中国は米国の思い通りには、いきません。第二次世界大戦後の自由貿易体制と冷戦後インターネットグローバル経済の成功でGDP2000兆円になつた米国とGDP1500兆円の中国との生存かけた戦いに発展しそうですね。戦争と共倒れ危険がありますね。ますます面白くなつてきました。
