    Actually China produce about half what she consume The Central Asia import is only 400000 barrel/day and the new Myanmar pipeline is about the same capacity. so import is less than 1/4.Potentially the Russian pipe line is going to be the biggest pipeline they are working on it
    Some of the line is operational already but the planned to increase the capacity Good luck try to bomb the Russian pipeline.

    Yes in emergency they can ration the civilian use. Most of the pipeline is underground only the pumping station is above ground easily repair

    to get back on topic:
    Has there ever been any official communication over Shandong being a one-of-a-kind vessel (just an other white elefant?) or is it meant to be the leading lady of a whole class; and if so, how many would they plan to construct?

    I have understood, that Type 001A is an interim-transition from Liaoning to the first real own aircraft carrier. And Type 001A has been added to the development program for aircraft carriers.

    Pipelines are under ground.
    And bombing them would get Russia into the war.

    true .. but it will be much more difficult than to close off the sea route

    STOP with the War Drums and talk of oil production leading to war.

    This is the CV-17 Thread, not an analysis of oil production capabilities.

    I say 6-12 weeks before she does at least a short engine trial under her own power. Evidence of that about to happen would be she would be ballasted to normal draft, so her boot top would be barely out of the water.

    I would be completely surprised if she went to sea that quickly.

    Lots of outfitting to do on that vessel yet. She was just launched.

    More likely late this year or early next.

    But father time will tell.

    The smoke indicates propulsion plant is essentially complete. So I am expecting an engine trial long before most of the rest of the fitting out is done. After the engine trial I expect there would still be 12-18 months of further fitting out, before a true shake down cruise.
