China - 1st Homemade Aircraft Carrier in Sea Trial

Last Update: May 14

This morning, China's first homemade aircraft carrier left Dalian Shipyard for sea trials. After its launch from the Dalian construction dock on April 26, 2017, it has been fully equipped for its first deployment at sea. The warship, up to now unnamed, makes up for the second of its kind in China's navy. China's first aircraft carrier, the "Liaoning", is based on a half-finished warship of Soviet origin which offered Chinese ship builders an opportunity to train their skills.

The possibility of having to cut oil imports from Iran should not hurt China as much, amid a glut in domestic supply of oil products, said She Jianyue, chief analyst at state-owned China National Offshore Oil Corp.

“Oil is not a big problem. For one, China can switch to other suppliers to replace Iran quite easily, particularly Russia. For another, China may not need to import that much of oil at all,” She said.

“We are exporting more and more gasoline and diesel, which means our refineries have processed too much oil into those transportation fuel. So, cutting imports from a single supplier will not be a problem,” he added.
