At present, the vast majority of China's imports of crude oil is dependent on the Malacca Strait of the sea transport channel into the territory China-Myanmar crude oil pipeline for China's oil and gas imports in the southwest direction opened up an important land channel add an import line for china imports of crude, Is conducive to enhancing China's oil supply security. This paper attempts to introduce the Sino-Burmese oil and gas pipeline project construction overview, analysis of the project in southwest China's energy structure, economic development and other aspects of the impact, And how to make the project play the greatest strategic significance.
