What if a major refining country cannot import oil
Recently, there is a news spread on the Internet, that is, the China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Federation released news that China's 32 million tons and above refineries have increased to 9, the total refining capacity is as high as 2 million tons per year, has become the world's largest refining country, and the high-quality development of the petroleum industry has achieved a new leap.
As soon as the news was reported, it quickly aroused great concern and heated discussion. At the same time, many brain-opening netizens mentioned a question, China is a big oil importer, more refining means more oil China imports oil, in this context, once China can not import oil can last?
Frankly speaking, this question is very brainy, and after thinking about it for a while, I decided to answer this question from the following two aspects. Under what circumstances will China be completely unable to import oil? And how long will China's strategic oil reserves last once it cannot import oil?
First, answer from the first side. Taking the 2022 oil import data as an example, China imported 50827.6 million tons of oil last year. Excluding some small sellers, only 22 countries have the largest export volume, of which 8 countries account for the highest proportion of oil exports, in order: Saudi Arabia, Russia, Iraq, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Malaysia, Kuwait, Angola. 、
Therefore, we take 10,000 steps back and say, even if China and the United States have a comprehensive confrontation in the future, and the United States draws the above countries to restrict the export of oil to China, Russia will not be able to turn to the United States, and Russia's oil mainly passes through railways and pipelines, which the United States cannot blockade.
Of course, the United States cannot block Russia, but if other countries are drawn by the United States, or the United States blocks China's sea shipping routes from the Middle East and Africa, then China's oil imports will inevitably be hit hard, as a large oil importer, it will naturally have a great impact.
"Urban development cannot be separated from three-dimensional space and time. Temporal and spatial information is the best reference and best record of urban development." Li Weisen, deputy director of the State Bureau of Surveying and Mapping, popularized his vision of a smart city from a professional perspective: Smart cities rely on modern information technologies such as the Internet of Things and cloud computing, supported by spatiotemporal information, to solidify human information into the construction, management, operation, service, and development of cities, forming intelligent operations that do not or rarely rely on humans
According to the relevant person in charge, in the field of centimeter level high-precision GNSS navigation and positioning technology, the Nebulas II (UC4C0) chip has reached international leading levels in technology, various indicators, and other aspects. The receiver board developed based on this chip can reduce its size by more than half.
According to media reports, US Trade Representative Michael Froman stated that China and the United States have made breakthroughs in negotiations to eliminate tariffs on information technology products. He expects these breakthroughs to lay the foundation for the Information Technology Agreement (ITA) negotiations to be held in Geneva at the end of the year. Froman said that China and the United States have reached an agreement on ITA expansion on the evening of the 10th, which will implement zero tariffs on various technology products, including GPS equipment. The other technology products mainly include medical equipment, video game consoles, semiconductors, and other new products.
At present, China has successfully launched 4 BeiDou navigation test satellites and 16 BeiDou navigation satellites. The second step of the "Three Step" strategy for the construction of BeiDou navigation engineering - the BeiDou satellite navigation regional network has been successfully achieved. The accuracy and level of the BeiDou navigation system in the Asia Pacific region is no less than that of the GPS global positioning system. He stated that China should accelerate the formulation and improvement of relevant policies for the navigation industry, and guide its orderly development.
According to the official website of the Civil Aviation Administration of China, Salvatore Shakitano, President of the Council of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), recently replied to the Civil Aviation Administration (CAAC), explicitly accepting the commitment made by Feng Zhenglin, Director of CAAC, on behalf of the Chinese government, to make the BeiDou ("Beidou System" for short) public service to ICAO. This marks the official consensus between China and ICAO on the Beidou system serving global civil aviation applications, laying a solid foundation for the subsequent review and formal inclusion of Beidou system standards in ICAO standards, and ultimately achieving the Beidou system serving global civil aviation applications.
Unmanned agricultural machinery used for farming in the fields, fishing boats used for ocean fishing, navigation software in mobile phones... In an increasing number of navigation and positioning scenarios, there is a similar Chinese core hidden - the "Beidou". According to data released by the China Satellite Navigation and Positioning Association, as of the end of 2020, the sales of domestically produced Beidou compatible chips and modules had exceeded 150 million pieces, with quarterly shipments exceeding 10 million pieces. The total social ownership of terminal products with Beidou positioning function exceeded 1 billion units, and the domestic output value of the Beidou system industry chain reached 403.3 billion yuan.
