Rosneft left without Kurdish "black gold"

69
Rosneft, under a contract with Iraqi Kurdistan, was supposed to buy up to 70% of autonomy oil exports at prices lower than world prices, including oil not controlled by Kurds already Kirkuk, reports Kommersant.




In June, Rosneft signed a legally binding contract with Kurdistan to buy oil and expand the oil pipeline to Turkey. But now, this contract is no longer possible to execute, Izzat Saber, head of the Kurdistan Parliament’s Finance and Economic Affairs Committee, acknowledged.

In early October, Iraq, with the help of the military, regained control of Kirkuk, one of the country's main oil provinces, which had recently been under the control of the Kurds, but was not formally part of the autonomy. In addition, the central government occupied disputed territories near Mosul in the province of Ninawa. So Baghdad responded to the referendum on the independence of Iraqi Kurdistan.

As a result, according to Izzat Saber, “the export of oil from Kurdistan decreased from 700 thousand to 200 thousand barrels per day”.

This means that the company "Rosneft" will have to negotiate with the Iraqi government about the method of execution of this contract concluded with Kurdistan,
said the official.

As part of the contract for the supply of oil, Rosneft has already paid Erbil $ 1 billion in advance, which the Kurdish government has sent to repay the debt to the UAE oil and gas company Dana Gas.

“In total, Rosneft was going to pay Erbil $ 3 billion, of which $ 1 billion to the Kurds to invest in the construction of the pipeline to Ceyhan, and another $ 1 billion to develop five fields that Rosneft was supposed to enter (the company announced this is October 19), ”the article says.

Earlier, the Iraqi authorities have repeatedly stated that they consider the contract between Iraqi Kurdistan and Rosneft illegal.

Any contract not concluded with the federal government and the Ministry of Petroleum (Iraq) is illegal. We are not interested in this contract, its details. We do not know these details and we don’t know anything at all,
Iraqi Oil Ministry spokesman Asem Jihad said Tuesday.

    They were greedy, got into Kurdistan to weld ... and consider a billion nowhere. Dealers damn it, Rosneft to her. Was it really unclear that no one would give the Kurds oil and Iraq was even ready to fight for oil? Now, of course, the official Iraq was offended and does not need any contracts. In general, and lost money and Russia's reputation in front of Iraq spoiled

            I'm somehow embarrassed ...
            at first the nightingales / kiselyov on TV said that the Turks are eating Kurdish oil and that they are financing something wrong there.
            here on the website they said that Jews and Israel were doing something wrong with it.

            and here - bam! and UTB Rosneft.
            urgently need to ask Solovyov / Kiselev or someone else there to explain, otherwise the head is spinning from constant changes in landmarks.

            who to believe? I'll go watch the weather forecast.

          "Under the contract for the supply of oil Rosneft has already paid Erbil $ 1 billion advance, which the Kurdish government has sent to pay off debt to Emirate oil and gas company Dana Gas. "- the simplest scheme theft of government money on an especially large scale, very weakly disguised as an advance to a completely unreliable subject. Such advances can be handed out either by thieves who have been rolled back from emirs. Are Rosneft controlled or thieves? According to the article "theft of state property in especially large amounts" it is high time to return the death penalty.

          laughing All the oil, that is Kurdish, that Iraq, that no one’s Kirkuk, still goes through the Barzani pipelines, into which Gazprom has invested, to Turkey and from there to the world market and by the way, including Israel, which, according to local Jews from the site, stands for the independence of Iraqi Kurdistan laughing and which Americans threw the best friends of Israel, allowing the Iraqis to pick up Kirkuk, for which the Kurds, including the Syrians, will be very grateful to themlaughing And then Iran agreed with Iraq on joint oil and gas activities, and not only, but actually withdraws Iraq from the custody of the United States. Plus, Qatar has gone all the way, and Saudi Arabia is cleaning its American ranks, suspiciously right after the trip to Putin. laughing So ISIS completely ends. Wait a bit, it will be even funnier)))

      The stupidity of Rosneft once again confirms the general stupidity (to put it mildly) of the Russian authorities in Middle Eastern affairs. the level of orientation in the local cuisine of our foreign ministry, defense and military personnel personally approximately corresponds to Rosneft.
      this is the question of the appropriateness of the Syrian campaign, assistance to the Haftar in Libya, etc.

        Apparently you have more information channels than in the Kremlin.
        Is it expensive to keep your analytical center and receive information from your SVR?

        this is to the question of the appropriateness of the Syrian campaign


        Your analysts in your center do not see the need and expediency in the Syrian company?

        In fact, envy overcomes. I sin.

        stupidity of Rosneft once again confirms the general stupidity


        Maybe you should work in Lukoil? Vryatli they will refuse such a specialist, with such channels for obtaining relevant information. And you vryatli will refuse a 6-digit salary amount. But if there are any extra ones, you can always help pensioners

        It's great that people of your level and your competence in international and Middle Eastern affairs visit this forum and leave such valuable comments. Satanovsky smokes, and I just arrive in euphoria. You must be sent to the Kremlin instead of him - you will give lectures to our Security Council and the non-Putin Putin with Shoigu.

            Protoss, well, if you don’t know anything about the oil of Kurdistan and Iraq, except what is written specifically in this article, what is there to play in analytics? I will say that Gazprom Neft has two daughters, one working with Baghdad, the other with Erbil. Risks are considered and very good. Will arrive either there or there. Rosneft in the energy market has made many interesting projects of a geopolitical (geo-energy) nature, that I doubt that the loss of Kurdish oil was an empty risk or a miscalculation.

              I don’t know much about Kurdistan oil, but apparently more than in Rosneft. Why did you drag Gazprom? are they the same stupid? quite possible. Kurdistan’s independence was knowingly doomed. as soon as they declared a referendum, it became clear that they would be nipped. you need to be specifically insane in order to subscribe to Kirkuk oil from the barzani in anticipation of the referendum, given that the Kirkuk and wells are long and tight under Talabani, and they (hero and sons, since Jalal was at death) are going to redirect oil to Iran, which they did - they are now carrying 36-ton oil tankers (but I think soon Baghdad will push them away from the feeder). and the friend of our Erdogan’s oil pipeline from ovak to ceyhan, who didn’t bother with Rosneft in real estate investors.
              at the same time, everyone rejected the tempting Kurdish offer - both the British and the Turks, etc., so apparently they and their analysts are also better than Rosneft.

    "Effective management" - you can’t better say if you took this billion from the budget
    Rosneft cannot afford to pay top managers less than global companies, otherwise it will encounter an overflow of personnel, said company president Igor Sechin, speaking at a shareholders meeting in St. Petersburg.
    “Information about individual income is confidential,” he emphasized. “The size of the incomes of Rosneft's top managers corresponds to the level of incomes of top managers of large Russian companies, and it should be comparable with the size of remuneration in world oil and gas companies, otherwise we will encounter an overflow of personnel. The presence of such personnel allows us to make technological breakthroughs, ”said the president of the company.

    Rosneft, I think, will return its billion dollars in two or three months:
    As a result, according to Izzat Saber, “the export of oil from Kurdistan decreased from 700 thousand to 200 thousand barrels per day”.

    Today a barrel of oil
    OIL price 08/11 17:02 - $ 63,45
    It’s a completely different matter who allows the state office to make such risky investments, say, investments at the smuggling level. Someone played the top managers of Rosneft, it’s time, in my opinion, to send a kick to retirement!

    Kurds periodically "shoot out" with SAA, Shiite formations. Both those and other comrades-in-arms in the war in Syria. It seems like the Kurds are being fed ammunition, "instructors" and "skies" by the US .... But Rosneft is pursuing its "foreign policy." I hope it does not get to insanity when the Russian "Gazprom" PMCs intersect with the "oil" on opposite sides of the barricades.

    Is it just me noticing, or not? As soon as unpleasant information appears about the actions of our government and the corresponding comments, right away, as "little devils from the snuff-box" completely certain characters come out, which had not been heard for a long time (I can name it very interesting). These characters begin to cheat on commentators who leave “bad” comments about the government, Putin, Putin’s friends, and other camarilla that has settled in and lives in the Kremlin. Guys !, would you share secret information - what are they paying? And maybe we, too, will tear, become "real patriots", huh? And about the info - there’s nothing to comment on here. I believe no one doubts that Sechin and his entourage are crooks and thieves. Yes and with brains it seems not so.

      Yes, there are present, quite a troll (Olgin, or some other) on the salary and I think the administration is aware, so there is only one reaction - complete ignore + complaints to the admins when these guys completely lose their shores. Still, the resource is popular, so the information troops keep their watch soldier laughing

    To prepare for the population to increase gas prices? And to increase prices in stores? Sechin must compensate for the loss. Medvedev has no money.

    In June, Rosneft signed a legally binding contract с Kurdistan on the purchase of oil and the expansion of the pipeline to Turkey.
    Is Kurdistan legitimate? belay Nick didn’t seem to recognize ... request
    To resolve the problem, negotiations are needed with Baghdad, because after the Iraqi army regained control over the disputed territories, exports from the region fell from 700 to 200 thousand barrels per day. To negotiate on how to execute the contract, according to Saber, Rosneft will have to. It is possible that part of the contract may be transferred to Baghdad.
    If you count 200 thousand a day for half the current oil price per barrel, it will be $ 6 .000.000 per day .... 2.190.000.000 per year ... a risky contract. but what a lucrative scribe .... wassat
    An agreement on cooperation in the oil and gas sector between Rosneft and the regional government of Iraqi Kurdistan was signed in February this year. A contract was signed for the purchase and sale of oil from 2017 to 2019.
    "Rosneft" will get out, you won’t spend these bourgeois so simply .... yes Net profit ▲ 377 billion rubles ($ 5.8 billion 2016)

    The very Kurdistan for the restoration of which Rosmiya allocated more than a billion dollars "on credit" ?!
    Well, of course, it’s not Russian cities that can be restored, it was possible to build a whole affordable housing estate in the same lard, but they preferred to simply throw it away, however, a multi-port building.

    It is necessary to start a “Case” .. I think Rosneft has enough sensible managers to assess the risks of such operations with unrecognized Kurdistan. And this was obviously done deliberately, to transfer money to someone

    Again, the oligarchy of the Russian Federation was kidanuli (or simply the oligarchy of the Russian Federation stupidly stolen), and it will be compensated for by us (taxes and prices), well, not to shake Rosneft ..
