HOUSTON, April 7 (Xinhua) -- U.S. crude oil imports and exports both increased during the week ending April 2, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) said Wednesday.

U.S. crude oil imports averaged 6.3 million barrels per day (b/d) last week, up by about 119,000 b/d from the previous week, while crude oil exports averaged about 3.4 million b/d, up by about 260,000 b/d from the previous week, according to the Weekly Petroleum Status Report.

Over the past four weeks, crude oil imports averaged about 5.8 million b/d, down by about 306,000 b/d year on year, while crude oil exports averaged about 2.9 million b/d, down by about 652,000 b/d year on year.

The United States has been a world important oil producer in the past years with the help of its shale oil production growth. Meanwhile, China is one of the biggest oil importers.

According to the latest release from the Chinese National Bureau of Statistics, China imported 89.57 million tonnes of crude oil in January and February this year, up 4.1 percent year on year. Enditem
