India, US and Oz are all short on oil prod compared to how much there heavy industry requires. So there is no actual need to ship oil from the US to Oz. However, the DEI produces enough oil to feed India, US and Oz to have all your HI running at 100%. Just one problem, in the first 3 months Japan is going to take it all off you.
This said there are certain points to consider
- Transferring 18000t of oil from US to OZ needs one tanker and will give 18000 supply and 24000 fuel, which would require at least 3 AK's and 2 TK's to transport. So in effect it is an efficient way of shipping to Oz if you dont mind the delay when it gets there. (It must be redistributed to HI, converted and then the supplies/fuel redistributed back to where its required.
- The total amount of resources produced in the US, approx 50000/day, will require a herculean effort to distribute through you empire effciently and you can just use these if you don't want to worry about oil/res. There is more than anough to keep everyone going.
- When shipping resouces out of DEI ahead a japan just head to nearest/safest destination, i.e. India or Oz and dump the oil/res in an appropriate port and the AI will distribute it for you. It doesn't really matter too much where it goes it will all get used
Hope this helps
