China Discovers Oil Power
Herbert W Armstrong   
Church of God

Office: Apostle

Herbert W. Armstrong founded the Worldwide Church of God in the late 1930s, as well as Ambassador College in 1946, and was an early pioneer of radio and tele-evangelism, originally taking to the airwaves in the 1930s from Eugene, Oregon.

In an age when-nil means power, communist China is in a big hurry to tap its newly discovered oil reserves and join the big league of oil producers. With a flurry of activity from the desolate stretches near the Soviet border to the South China Sea, China's backward oil industry is pressing hard to find, tap, refine, and sell its new-found treasure trove. Near Shanghai, construction of an "oil city" complete with refinery, petrochemical complex, and tanker facilities goes on around the clock. In the fifties, China was considered to be poor in oil reserves by Western geologists. From importing over 60% of its oil needs from Russia in those days, China has come to the place where she is now more than self-sufficient. With 1.2 million barrels a day in production, China is already second to Indonesia in Asian output. With sufficient Western technological help, some oil experts even feel China, by the early 1980s, could match the output of Saudi Arabia today.
