China to Surpass U.S. in Oil Refining. China is about to unseat the United States as the world leader in petroleum refining, a position the United States has held for over a century. One result of the coronavirus pandemic is the loss of U.S. refineries as the demand for petroleum products is reduced due to global lockdowns.
China Slashes Crude Oil Import Quotas of Private Refiners
The system, which was introduced in 2015, allows authorities to adjust the volume of crude imports by private processors, which in-turn affects the refining operations and output at these companies. The Chinese teapot sector began 2021 with a significantly larger first batch quota compared with the same tranche last year.
China's Refining-Chemical Industry Pattern And Development
China's refining capacity growth State-owned refineries are dominant among China's oil refining enterprises, with large scale and high operating rate. They are both in the leading positions in crude oil production and refined oil sales. Others are local refineries, which are relatively small in size and mostly concentrated in Shandong Province.
