The South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo cited unidentified officials this week as saying Chinese ships transferred oil to North Korean vessels some 30 times since October.
The department noted that the two ships appeared to be illegally trading in oil from ship to ship to bypass sanctions.
President Donald Trump is reminding the world that he's long warned about the dangers posed by North Korea's nuclear program.
China has commented on reports alleging that it exports oil to North Korean by saying that Beijing " completely and strictly" implements United Nations trade restrictions recently adopted against Pyongyang.
The satellite pictures even show the names of the ships.
Washington says the full cooperation of China, North Korea's neighbour and main trading partner, is vital to the success of this effort, while warning that all options are on the table, including military ones, in dealing with North Korea.
Trump said on Twitter Thursday that China had been "Caught RED HANDED", adding he was "very disappointed that China is allowing oil to go into North Korea". One of them - Rye Song Gang 1, seen "connected to a Chinese vessel" - was included in the November 21 sanctions as a vessel of Korea Kumbyol Trading Company possibly transferring oil to evade sanctions.
Robert Kelly, a professor at Pusan National University in South Korea, told The Telegraph that China trading oil to North Korea could be possible. A government source said, "We need to focus on the fact that the illicit trade started after a UN Security Council resolution in September drastically capped North Korea's imports of refined petroleum products".
"There is a lot of under-the-radar on the Chinese side".
According to the most recent Chinese customs data released Tuesday, the country did not export gasoline, jet fuel, diesel or fuel oil to Pyongyang in November. "Beijing does not police the border strictly or enforce the sanctions toughly".
President Trump said he was "very disappointed" over a report that China is continuing to supply oil to North Korea - as pressuring the rogue nation to give up its nuclear weapons program is one of the president's biggest challenges heading into 2018.
Hua questioned whether any country could make sure "not a single breach will happen".
