If China is in war with Russia who us going to Supply China the Necessary FUEL (Petrolium gas etc ) required for the war ?
Iran, sudan, indonesia, australia, saudi arabia, kuwait, venezuela, Kazakhstan. The list actually goes on and on and on.
Chinas own oil production per day 3.504 million bbl/day (2004)
Oil - consumption: 6.391 million bbl/day (2004)
Oil - imports: 3.226 million bbl/day (2004)
In the event of war they will have stopped production of consumer goods and would have shifted those oil supplies (which make up the vast majority of
consumtion) to war industries. That where china will get its oil from
china is almost totally dependent on Russia as far as Fuel
Well very unlikey, Yuko was the only oil company which dealed with china until they went bankrupt in 04. The largest amount of oil per day was only
200,000 barrels per day (as claimed by the article, even though other sources put the figure at less than 100,000)
Russian Oil Cuts Threaten China's Energy Security
Yukos has signed contracts with China National Petroleum Corp. (CNPC) and refiner Sinopec to deliver at least 5.5 million tons of oil this year,
or an average of 110,000 barrels per day. But it’s actually been shipping as much as 200,000 barrels per day.
Notice the title of the article.
Now look at chinas exports of oil for the same period
Oil - exports: 340,300 bbl/day (2004)
That is atleast 140,000 more barrels per day if we minus chinas "TOTAL DEPENDENCE" from russian oil to chinas own exports we get the feeling that
russia is only a small suppiler.
or 2006 figures
RUSSIAN OIL TO FLOW TO CHINA EVEN BEFORE
Alekperov said Lukoil seeks to raise crude production in Kazakhstan by 40% in four years. "The total volume of crude oil production in Kazakhstan
is expected to reach six million tons (120,500 bbl/d) in 2006, and the company plans to reach 10 million tons (200,100 bbl/d) by 2010."
and advanced Technology is concerned
Russia has a advanced technology base?.
the best Tech that china uses today is atleast 15 years backdaed Soviet Technology.
You mean the 636M, Su-30MKK, Su-27SMK
, 956EM with the 3M80MBE sunburn and Kashtan air defence system.
But lets factor in training and condition of the chinese armed forces compared to the mightly russian frederation. Russian pilots get 20hours of
training a year whilst J-8 pilots in china get 180 hours.
I wonder if the russian airforce is cutting back funds for the armaments like the AAM or ground attack missiles to much those rusty buckets even have
some attacking capability
Russian are well aware about the loopholes of their own technology supplied to china
Loop holes..........very wishful thinking
RUSSIA HAS NEVER BEEN SUCCESFULLY INVADED
Mongolia, Germans WW1, and a host of other countries before russia was even russia
