Russia remains one of the largest oil suppliers in the USA

Despite the complex relationship between Moscow and Washington, Russia remains one of the largest suppliers of petroleum products to the United States. This is evidenced by the reports of the Energy Information Administration of the US Department of Energy.


According to data released by the American media, in October last year, Russia ranked second in the world in energy supplies to the United States, second only to Canada. Against the background of the fact that the United States purchases not so large volumes of oil abroad, in October Russia delivered 20,9 million barrels to the USA, ahead of Mexico (17 million barrels) and Saudi Arabia (13,7 million barrels). Canada delivered the most - 136,5 million barrels of Canadian oil.

In the following months, Russia supplied the United States approximately the same amount of oil approximately every month, constantly becoming one of the five major suppliers of US petroleum products.

As previously reported, the United States is increasing demand for Russian energy amid the cessation of procurement and the imposition of sanctions against Venezuela and Iran. Iranian and Venezuelan oil are under sanctions and therefore cannot be purchased.

Russian energy resources, despite the sanctions imposed on them, remain one of the most affordable in the world, including cost and volumes. It is not surprising that when declaring the supply of American liquefied gas to Europe, the United States often gives out gas purchased from Russia for it. And the same with oil.

          Free would not work. First, they will need to throw off power, after the overthrow of power, a civil war will begin, which will ultimately lead to the entry of US troops into the territory of Venezuela, and this is a war.

            Of course, conditionally free, except for how much they swelled in Guaido and how much oil production protection would cost. Rosneftevskie, by the way, investments in Venezuela are already paying off, indirectly ..

              Guaido is America's failed investment. Russia has prevented. What they managed to snatch from Venezuelan accounts is theirs.

              Something tells me that while in Venezuela there will be no our "strategists" -bombers, and in Cuba there are no missiles - there is no reason to count on calm in that region.

              And there is no need for references to the “Caribbean crisis” - at that time American missiles were not in Poland and they were not planned in the Baltic states and Uraine. Blow for blow and don’t whine ... Not we started.

                It doesn’t work out differently, because the Americans understand only the language of power. Trump recently promised again to "restore democracy" to Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela. Maybe not medium-range missiles, but our military bases should be there.

And the creators of that dok.film could tell a lot. It’s a pity - he can’t do it anymore, but my mother and sister didn’t always know where and why he was going on a business trip. Only holes on the skin were counted.

          the most interesting thing is that the article, as it were, hints that they continue to drive "people's resources" !!! and specialists do not give a more detailed layout ... and there it is already visible that oil products are ahead of oil !!! wink wassat

          Russia increased supplies to the United States, mainly due to petroleum products: in October 2019, they grew 2,5 times (compared with the beginning of the year), to 16 million barrels. Russia has traditionally been the second largest supplier of petroleum products to the United States after Canada (but not oil), and in the fall it sharply increased volumes. In November, Russian companies exported 17 million barrels to the United States. petroleum products, setting a historical record. Imports from Canada amounted to 18 million barrels. fuel.

          In value terms, Russian oil exports to America increased in January-November 2019 from $ 0,74 billion to $ 1,95 billion, the FCS said. Russia also shipped $ 3,8 billion worth of petroleum products to the United States.

                It does not make any reverse, it just happens to be different in oil, and it is not possible to make diesel fuel from American oil, which is why they buy where heavy oil can be.

            In principle, you are right. The USA is the leader in the production of WTI light crude oil, while its refineries are designed for the so-called Brent heavy oil, which also includes our Urals. After processing which they sell at exorbitant prices to their vassals. Previously, it was brought by the Americans from Venezuela.

              It became known that, according to the forecast of the Government of the Russian Federation, non-primary export of goods from Russia in 2019 will amount to approximately $ 160 billion. This is more than the value of the previous ode by $ 9 billion. Recall that in 2018, exports amounted to more than $ 449,96 billion. If we take this value as the base value, the share of non-oil exports in 2019 will be 35,6%. “It is planned to increase non-oil exports this year to $ 9 billion compared to last year. And the total amount will be $ 160 billion. " Minister of Finance…

      What is wrong with being a major energy supplier? You see. that for example when American politicians hiss through their teeth about the “gas station country” they are very disingenuous. The USA itself rose on what? The beginning of the last century is a world gas station country. Here you can tell a lot about that. For example, take an interest. what is the meaning of the development of astronautics. In the 80s of the last century, NASA officially stated that the development of cosmonautics for the construction of bases on the moon with the aim of extracting energy was a priority. Helium 3! To regain the leading position in the world as the main energy supplier.

    It is not surprising that when declaring the supply of American liquefied gas to Europe, the United States often gives out gas purchased from Russia for it. And the same with oil.

    In this case, Russia also needs to purchase oil in Iran and Venezuela and resell it to the United States, or send it to its oil refineries.

      And you will familiarize yourself with Lukashenko’s tricks in more detail. Lukashenko took this as an opportunity to continue blackmailing Russia, they say there is an alternative if that.
      Belarusians got the opportunity to work in Russia without problems, get a residence permit, medical support and so on. At the same time, Russians do not use such opportunities in Belarus, only a small part of them travel to a neighboring country on vacation. In Russia, at least 700 thousand Belarusians work.

      - So the union turned out to be so one-sided?

      - Over time, the subsidized nature of relations began to dominate in the Union State. Bidding is ongoing around oil and gas prices, the allocation of subsidies, social packages and so on. All this is being counted. As of January 1, 2020, the total amount of subsidies that Minsk received from Moscow amounted to $ 133 billion. At the same time, Belarus often pursued an anti-Russian policy. Minsk does not recognize the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, does not want to recognize Crimea as part of Russia, supports Kiev in the war in the Donbass, and so on. Alexander Lukashenko promised to recognize Abkhazia and South Ossetia, but rolled out a huge bill for this. In addition, agreements on the deployment of the Russian aerospace forces base in Belarus were canceled. And now Lukashenko is proving that Moscow did not need it at all. Which is strange, because in Moscow they probably know better. The base was needed because it took control of the US base in Poland. But after the start of the sanctions war between Russia and the West in Belarus, a developed industry appeared to ensure smuggling from Europe to Moscow and other Russian cities. For 5 years Minsk has been supplying the European "forbidden" with its documents. And the peak was that Lukashenko opened his country to citizens of 80 countries - and now they can use the visa-free regime with Minsk in order to get to Russia.


      Meanwhile, Minsk buys gas for $ 129 per thousand cubic meters, and sells it to its population for $ 270-300. It is not known where the difference goes. Apparently, someone in Belarus is speculating.

        Sky, and let's talk about the "tricks" of our oil magnates and the State Duma lobbied by them.
        In September 2019, that is, about 5 months ago, the State Duma adopted in the first reading a bill allowing Rosneft and Gazpromneft not to pay the state duty from 8 fields in Eastern Siberia, as well as to return about 6,5 billion rubles to these guys from the budget previously listed in it. According to the amendments, from January 1, 2020, the export duty from new deposits is not paid. Surely the amendments were adopted in the third reading, judging by the speed with which the Duma thought up quietly fiscal laws for the population - to compensate for the budget deficit that arose due to concessions to the oil industry. And concessions, they are gifts, will allow Rosneft and Gazpromneft to save 1,5-2 billion dollars a month in total. Moreover, the Duma members decided to return to the oil industry the deduction they paid to the budget on May 1, 2019. The customs service was surprised and warned that abuse could occur.
        Trying to comprehend the wild unreasonable, we have to stop on an interesting fact: what was its head, General Kizlyk, related to warning the customs service about possible abuses? The one who, with a loud noise in the media, was seized by the relevant services and in the presence of witnesses exposed as a sorcerer on an especially large scale.
        And the amendment on duty concessions applies to certain "other" persons exporting oil abroad. I would like to see the faces of these "faces." After all, it is interesting, because of whom the country's population fell under the upcoming tax press.

            So I'm not talking about the Kremlin, I'm talking about Russia.
            Only the lazy did not speak about the garter of all those holding power and their concern for those who grabbed the country's wealth. You need to remember, but already tired of chatting.

              So I'm talking about being tired of reading about the army and navy.
              No need to compare the current with the figures of the past.

                The topic is not new.
                And what is new in the world, in the country, about which they have not yet spoken?

    It’s important for Americans not to let the Texas refineries stand idle. Because of the crisis in Venezuela, they slowed down. These plants are for the processing of heavy oil, oil with sulfur, etc.
    Even asphalt can drive into gasoline.
    For them, Urals, oil from Tatarstan - that’s it. So the United States is buying up heavy oil all over the globe.

    Russia remains one of the largest petroleum product suppliers to the United States
    That would make them pay for our oil in rubles)

      Eh, we all think in Soviet categories. And oil is not ours and dollars for it are not for us.

    Total lies and deceit - this is the hallmark of the oligarchic monkeys. They rub rubbish about fake patriotism, but they themselves fill their pockets with the country's resources. Nothing personal. Fools are always the loser. You can continue yelling about the "cunning plan" ....... it is not clear to whom.

    It's hard with you, Old, to disagree.
    Another thing we have, in Belarus ... a sneeze on the spot is an attempt to escape.
    The works of the Lord are wonderful ...

    The US "shale oil" is a gas condensate of heavy sands, if it is correct in Russian. This slush used to be oil before and was not considered ... it is very light, incl. and therefore WTI costs 10% cheaper than Brent ... they need heavy oil for dispensing for the refineries to work (each one for a specific range of oils is sharpened), therefore, about abandoning the Venezuelan - nonsense, they take it with a prepayment for the cache !!!! (here is such a fight with Madagascan’s cowboy regime and his world Judeo-imperialism wink ).

    "Russia remains one of the largest suppliers of oil to the United States," as well as titanium, steel, aluminum, rare metals, cosmo-engines of fish, and much more ....

    this is elementary Watson.
    ps If someone does not understand, I will explain, their mainland is small, and there are many needs, there is no heavy oil there, and light zilch and nothing more, there is nothing to store there. And if you take pictures from the cosmos, they even have housing there like NIF-NIF (the wolf blew and not)
    Against Russia, only Canada can be comparable in size.

    I wanted to say one thing, only Canada on the territory is smaller than us, but more than others
