Minsk called the price at which oil is bought in Russia


First Deputy Chairman of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Belarus Dmitry Krutoy commented on the situation with oil prices, which Minsk buys from Russia. Recall that a few days ago, negotiations between Vladimir Putin and Alexander Lukashenko took place in Sochi. These talks were dedicated to energy supply issues. According to experts, negotiations have not yet led to any breakthrough.


According to Dmitry Krutoy, today Minsk buys oil in Russia at prices that are about 17% lower than world prices. Translated in absolute terms - about 44-45 dollars per barrel (if we are talking about the Brent brand, and in terms of barrels of other brands (Urals) - below) today.

The representative of the Government of Belarus noted that this year Minsk also wants to purchase oil from Russia at the same discount that does not take into account export duties. At the same time, as Krutoy stated, “if you remove the duty and take the net price, then the price will turn out to be, in fact, global.”

At the moment, according to Minsk, Belarus is interested in buying oil from the Russian Federation precisely according to this formula - at prices conjugated with world prices. The so-called tax maneuver carried out by Russia, as stated, leads to the fact that Russian companies raise the price of “black gold” when sold to Belarus. This, as noted, contradicts Belarusian interests, and therefore Minsk is "interested in buying oil at world prices."

For reference: in 2020, Minsk is going to acquire up to 25 million tons of oil in Russia.

    We do not buy Brent oil from Russia.
    And when the authorities so vaguely answer the question about the price of oil, one gets the impression that now gasoline at Belarusian gas stations will rise in price not by 1 kopek per week, but by two.

      That's right, Russia is selling Urals brand oil. She's a little cheaper than the Brent brand.
      Regarding the price, perhaps, indeed, we Belarus is now buying oil from us at world prices. But if you take into account transportation, our oil is still cheaper. Let's say you buy oil at the lowest price somewhere in Venezuela. Only if you calculate the cost of its delivery to Belarusian refineries, its price will still be significantly higher than the Russian one. I personally see this whole debate about the price of oil for Belarus. I admit that I could be wrong.

        You are not far from the truth. Only Lukash thought to cheat, but he himself fell into his own trap. They clearly explained to him in Sochi what the path of Yanukovych smells like and that, unlike Yanek, Rostov does not shine for him. Nobody will have time to wash off and save him. Therefore, this wise man suddenly from the stove break. They also explained to him that nefig roll a barrel on Russia - it no longer rolls ...

        That's just the "world price" from the lips of Belarusian officials does not mean at all what people think, just like the Ukrainian "overpower" or "European standards."
        Therefore, only a few people from Gazprom, etc., can objectively know the situation.

        It is worth noting that the Belarusian refineries are focused on the refining of Russian oil. Heavy Venezuelan will require a significant restructuring of the processing process. Switching to oil from the Gulf will require lower costs, but Belarus is not very ready to buy it. There is another question - it’s not very clear to me whether they agreed on pricing according to the formula “well price plus transportation price” or not. Because the price, taking into account the "tax maneuver", this price is applied to domestic prices in Russia, but oil and gas were sold at a higher price in Belarus. And, as I understand it, the excise tax is levied directly at the well. Or are there any other troubles there? hi

      So you read the Belarusian media, it is less obscurely written there. The Russian media are also carefully silent about the full structure of oil relations. Will you find? Yes, and it will rise in price, and not by 2 but by 4-10. And bel.rub. will fall, grew. rub., by the way, similarly. There is no positive.

          How do I know. I don’t know about the adversaries, but it pleases the national banks, they will balance the balance to +. I personally know and understand that this is beneficial for the exporter, but it is terribly not profitable for me, the prices are rising, but there is no salary. Maybe what for this export economy? In the states, prices are rising for years, and not like here - tomorrow is already a new price.

            Prices are set by those who sit on the crest of the entire chain from the manufacturer to the end customer. And these are retailers, i.e. wholesale magnates of key positions. It is they who dictate prices, not the dollar. The dollar is actually an oil dollar. And what happens: oil prices rise and gasoline prices rise too, and when oil prices fall, then gas prices still rise up. And the dollar is an illusion that is created to drive people by the nose. And the funny thing is that people hawala it. Why adversaries are angry when the local currency does not fall according to plan, because it exposes the illusion of the dependence of exchange rates. And the rise in prices is a price bubble that bursts sooner or later. Now the price situation is already close to the peak (so that "kirdyk" comes) and the rats started to flee the ship. Gref said that he was ready to leave Sberbank. The Central Bank (more precisely, those who still have overseas reins) are in agony before amending the Constitution. We are waiting for interesting moments after the reset of the Pikimon government. Real money is gold, not illusory wrappers.

    And they want to continue to be sold at the same price. But what about the statements after negotiations on the sale at world prices and on a commercial basis? Either the Russian and Belarusian sides interpret the agreement in their own way, or there were some omissions in the official statements.

    As far as I know now, only Russian oligarch Gutseriev, a friend of Lukashenko, supplies oil to Belarus, and even then delivered only 500 thousand tons in January, which allows two Belarusian oil refineries to operate at a quarter of their capacity. Contracts with Rosneft, Lukoil, Tatneft and others have not been concluded yet, so talking about the price is premature, but in any case, oil will not be cheaper for Belarus than last year, by the way, Kozak said that the Russian government will only facilitate the conclusion contracts and the price will not interfere. So, as agreed then we will look, although we may not know the final price, they will say a trade secret.

    As I understood from Kozak’s remarks, the agreement between the governments was concluded until 2021. Oil will be delivered to Belarus at the world commercial price
    established by suppliers. That is, they will not chase the daily volatility of oil prices.

    At the same time, as Krutoy stated, “if you remove the duty and take the net price, then the price will turn out to be, in fact, global.”

    Breshet:
    So look here, that was:
    The price of Urals oil is $ 63,8 per barrel. BEFORE they had a discount - 75 bucks per ton, in the end a barrel - 53,7. OURS said guys. let's change the conditions - a discount of 75 bucks minus 5 bucks to the supplier, per ton. Total price for Belarus - 54,36 bucks per barrel (barrel).
    Now does he want world prices? Well, there will be 63,8 dollars per barrel. Instead of the ones proposed by Russia 54,36.

    That was at the rate of 63,8 per barrel. Even at the current price of 60 per barrel, everything is the same. He's just stupidly lying

      Is this when Urals was at 63,8? So much in early January, Brent cost, and Urals costs 2,5-3 USD cheaper. And now Brent is trading around 55 USD https://index-pro.ru/news/commodities/neft-vstretila-pyatnicu-v-pozitivnom-nastroenii

        The average price of oil of the Russian export brand Urals for January-November 2019 amounted to $ 63,52 per barrel, follows from the materials of the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation.

          So what about the price last year or this year? Everything is clear with last year, but now we are talking about at what price to buy oil this year. And it’s somehow incorrect to proceed from last year’s prices in these calculations.

          The second time I bring your own phrase. So for what brand of oil is they now giving $ 60 per barrel? If Brent is currently trading at around 55 USD per barrel. And 60 and 55, excuse me, this is not the same thing.

            Fuck, by the way. The discount does not depend on the price of oil. The calculations are correct. With a discount always less than without a discount. And absolutely do not care - 63,60 or even 55
            https://nefturals.ru
            On January 29th, it cost 60.

    Why would Russia sell oil to Belarus? You can sell finished gasoline and diesel. The higher the degree of redistribution, the lower the initial cost of raw materials in the cost structure. Build a refinery at the border with the brothers and drive the finished product there.
