Crude oil imports slowed in 2005 to December 1, reported Dow Jones. Chinese refiners increased gasoline and diesel output, but cut back on of jet-fuel kerosene. Gasoline output grew 4.5% in November year on year to 1.31 million barrels a day, while January-November output rose 3.9% to 1.25 million barrels a day. Diesel fuel production was up 9.6% in November to 2.33 million barrels a day, and by 9.7% for the first 11 months to 2.25 million barrels a day. But aviation kerosene production fell 10% in November year on year to 191,900 barrels a day, suggesting more diesel and less jet-kerosene, and greater use of domestic output that cut into import growth.
