Saudi oil fields burn after an UAV attack

107
Experts predict a jump in oil prices in connection with the incident that occurred in Saudi Arabia. Middle Eastern media report an attack on one of the world's largest oil fields, as well as on Saudi Aramco’s other infrastructure. We are talking about the Abkayk and Khurais deposits.




The media, citing the Saudi Ministry of the Interior, reported that these facilities in Saudi Arabia were subjected to a massive attack using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

As a result, the attack led to the occurrence of large fires at the deposits and transportation facilities of "black gold".

Dozens of vehicles and hundreds of firefighters work at the fire sites. According to the Saudi emergency services, the fires were localized. There is no data on the dead and injured at this moment. At the same time, experts note that the damage from striking these objects globally can amount to several billion dollars - due to changes in the price of a barrel of oil. Saudi Arabia itself has to carry out large-scale restoration work.

At this time, no one has yet claimed responsibility for strikes at Saudi Aramco’s facilities. However, Middle Eastern media suggest that this could have been accomplished by a Hussite group. At the same time, accusations against Iran rained down.

Explosions are heard behind the frames of one of the published video. It is stated that we can talk about a terrorist attack "on the ground":

        I do not understand. There is a clear skirmish - machine guns, machine guns, explosions are heard. And these that shoot - LAUGH ...
        It seems that these people will understand what War and Death are only when they themselves touch.
        And it is surprising that only now this attack has occurred. War with the Hussites long time coming. Iran oil prices need to be raised. So both those, and those, in theory, something like that should have done a long time ago. Themselves Saudi they also screwed up heavily with lower oil prices, so it’s possible that they themselves arranged this attack. Generally, this attack is ALL profitable, but happened just now.

        How does it matter? Now, within one or two days, it will become "highly likely absolutely reliably established (because there is no one else but him)" that these are insidious Iranian drones. They will show a fragment on which it says "made in IRAN", and we will have a round of tension in the Middle East.

              You are utter nonsense, that’s what matters to the STATE about some traders out there? Well, let it be in one country, or even in a dozen countries, there are traders who will force the authorities to give them preferences, but damn dozens and hundreds of countries in the world, they don’t introduce the gold standard, huh? Think about it and it will immediately become clear to you that the STATE does not benefit from this.

              In general, read what the "fixed \ floating material standard of money and its problems and disadvantages" is, as well as what is the "inflation tax". In general, the phrase "money should work, and not lie like a dead weight" did not appear out of nowhere, and today's states do not want to receive the degradation of their economies because of "money-boxes".

                Aren't you a liberal? The state is very much concerned, for example, whether farmers / collective farmers will be able to buy diesel fuel tomorrow, to pour it into a combine harvester and to mow wheat, so that the day after tomorrow the hungry population, and so always forever displeased the capital, would not come to visit the cabinet of ministers. I’m not talking about more complex things. And when the price of the most important energy carrier is determined by a codla of several hundred people on the London Stock Exchange, it seems to me that this is wrong.

                  So what's the problem? come up with something better! Just to begin with, before dissolving again the verbiage about the next version of the "material standard of money", figure out why they were abandoned. What to look for, I described above, for a start, at least google why the copper / silver / gold standards were abandoned and why the energy standard was not adopted.

    What is a UAV attack ?! There a rifle battle with a sabotage group is heard, and then a powerful explosion with a fire.
    The Hussites launched sabotage attacks on the oil infrastructure of the Saudis.
    And it’s too early to talk about oil prices, while it’s just panic on the exchanges and if everything is not so serious, then it will settle down tomorrow.

        The article states a possible increase in oil prices, as the infrastructure of oil fields and oil transportation is damaged. The price of damage is estimated at a preliminary billions of dollars.
        I rather meant the panic in the "exchange community".
        But judging by the statements of the Saudis, the attacks were multiple, on various elements of the infrastructure and "it was stated that it could be a terrorist attack" on the ground. "
        And if so, then there may soon be a sequel. And it is not a fact that Hussites, and even more so Iran, may be involved in this - the Gulf War is not at all in his interests.

        The nature of the firing is just characteristic of the fire at the detected sabotage group at the object - sighting, in short bursts, possible return fire and explosion / explosions.
        Someone seeks to rekindle the war in the Gulf and the oil Arab world. Anyone who needs a high oil price and expansion of sales markets. The one who has already "blown up" oil tankers in the Gulf shouting "Hold Iran !!!" ...

    However, Middle Eastern media suggest that this could have been accomplished by a Hussite group. At the same time, accusations against Iran rained down.

    And for me it’s necessary as always to find who is profitable. There is an oversupply of oil in the market, and lowering the price for some is becoming critical. And who has the smallest margin? Iran doesn’t. The Hussites do not have it at all. But there is one country across the ocean where a price below $ 50 per barrel can bury an entire industry.
    And another argument. UAV control range. This deposit is far from the Houthis and Iran. But the American Air Force bases are just a stone's throw away. We superimpose here the very recent events of the attack by "unknown" several tankers in the bay with anti-ship missiles (yes, the type of missiles was not determined by the Americans, who fired - too!).
    Something tells me that the villain will not be found again and will have to appoint someone. There would be a reason, but there would be bombs.

      The Iranian Khamits UAV kamikaze known as Samad-3 flew once even flew to Dubai Airport in the UAE. According to UN experts who studied the remains of one of these UAVs that crashed near Riyadh, their maximum range is around 1500 km. There, it’s true that UAVs fly at such distances without a satellite control channel only at a given course, but this is enough for attacks on such large objects.
      I'm not talking about the fact that the Iranians could Husites fit their latest Howeizeh cruise missiles for combat testing, with these missiles the declared range is up to 1300 km. This is enough to get from Yemen to the Abkayk and Khurais fields.

      I agree that this is beneficial to American firms that produce shale oil. They are better at higher oil prices. But our oil companies are also better off with higher prices - in the tundra with permafrost they can’t get cheap (like in the desert). So it is beneficial to both us and them. Well, it’s time for all American patriots to avenge the Saudis for the 11 of September 2001 of the year. As the saying goes: good luck!

      In general, I believe that it is time for all people of goodwill on the planet to understand that this obscurantist Wahhabi state, spreading its sextant faith and terrorism throughout the world, should not exist at all. To defeat him to hell, confiscate their money abroad as terrorist and play unnoticed (as Libyan money began to play - you won’t find any ends). Everything is in profit, there is less than one evil kingdom of evil on Earth ... A purely humanitarian action!

      As for the drone range argument, you are partially right. But it is possible, after all, in advance, along the assumed flight path, to arrange 5-6 agents with control panels tuned to the frequency of this UAV, to designate for them the timing of UAV entry into their zones and they will "lead" the UAV from themselves to the next zone, and the zones may not even touch. Cheap and cheerful, albeit risky.

    Experts predict a jump in oil prices in connection with the incident that occurred in Saudi Arabia.

    If the largest refinery in the world does not work, then it turns out that the demand for raw materials (oil) will fall. In this case, how can oil prices soar? Am I thinking something wrong?

      This is not a refinery; in Abkayk there is a plant for stabilizing crude oil coming from nearby giant fields. In order to prepare for storage, transportation and processing, crude oil must be preliminarily prepared; for this purpose associated gas, mineral salts, water, etc. are removed from it. This was actually done at this enterprise, after which oil was sent from there to Saudi export terminals. If this enterprise ceases to work at all, then there Saudi oil exports may collapse.

      The logic is this:
      1) the refinery does not work -> there is a shortage of oil products -> they can be obtained by "additional loading" of already existing production facilities that are not 100% loaded -> which requires the purchase of additional raw materials.
      2) turmoil in the Persian Gulf -> the risks of tanker transportation are increasing -> an increase in strategic oil reserves is required in case of their complete suspension -> explosive demand for oil.

    Vitalik! Iran supplies the Hussites with weapons, in particular ballistic and anti-ship cruise missiles, not to mention drones. And he launched the production of these same missiles in Yemen. The Hussites themselves would not be able to cope with this, they have no time for this in a country where a civil war is raging. So the neighbors will always have claims to Iran, especially the Saudis. Even without the hint of the USA and Israel. After all, when you are attacked by Iranian drones or missiles, no one will look for the guilty party. Iranian drone - it means Iran is to blame, even if it’s on its side to this attack

    For the country, this may be good. Our budget is imposed on the basis of oil prices. But whether it will be good for the population. The prices for fuels and lubricants will skyrocket, then for products, since everything is interconnected here. And they will take off.

    At the time when ours slowed down the supply of S-300s to Iran and the whistle in the media began in defense of Iran, there was a statement from one of the specialists in the Middle East. The point boiled down to the fact that the supply of two or four S-300 battalions cannot solve the air defense problem. They will be destroyed in the first place and all Western media (newspapers, Internet, TV) will be full of photographs of the wreckage of this system with replicas that it is useless for anything. Accordingly, those willing to buy will decrease significantly. So it is with "Pantsir". Nobody began to understand the reason for the defeat. The main thing was struck

    Well, the US air defense systems are by no means bad. This is clearly visible, especially if you do not remember every time 1990 and the Patriot system, which was insufficiently developed at that time. But over the past 25-30 years, the system has changed, and much more. Emli used to be suitable only for intercepting aerodynamic targets, but now it can intercept cruise missiles, both ballistic missiles and aircraft ... The question is not whose system is better or worse. Americans should not be considered suckers who initially adopt a system that is useless for anything. The question is different. WHO IS OPERATING IT. Question is about KOSORUKOSTI those who manage such a system. And if the calculations KOSORUKI, and Arabs are often like that, then give them at least the best air defense system, at least C-400, though C-700at least some alien space defense system - they will still smear. This is the first factor.
    Second. Poorly tuned control of the air situation, if in reality drones were used and at a distance of more than 1000 km. This means that for almost 2 hours, these drones quietly moved in the airspace of the KSA.

      It’s necessary not only to have missiles, but also to direct them at the target. Judging by the result, they pointed with a 100% hit.

    Well, if this is the largest object of the oil and gas complex, then it would have to be able to miss. So 100% hit was provided before the launches.
    The issue of security (in the sense of air defense) - here are the questions. If the events were at night, but optical detection can be excluded. But why was it not conducted (or was conducted very badly) monitoring of the air situation? Although not too many of the air defense missile systems could work on UAVs, Except for the "Avenger", "Mistral", possibly "Crotal" (although unlikely), "Patriots" and "Advanced Hawks" for UAVs - it's like a cannon against sparrows.
