US intelligence will begin to monitor oil reserves in Russia and other countries


The National Agency for Geospatial Intelligence (NGA) under the US Department of Defense began looking for a contractor to provide him with information on oil reserves in different countries of the world. Americans are interested in data on the largest exporters and consumers of “black gold”.


The agency has compiled and published a list of countries that interest it. It includes the Russian Federation. In addition to her, the list included Saudi Arabia, China, Brazil, Iran, Venezuela and Angola.

The main goal of the American intelligence organization is to reinforce analytical data with information from other sources about oil reserves, its movements, trade operations, storage capacity, prices, and other commercial information.

NGA expects to regularly monitor the situation in more than 20 thousand oil storage facilities around the world. Under favorable weather conditions, the agency expects to receive information about the degree of their filling four times a month in absolute volume values ​​(barrels or cubic meters), as well as a percentage of the total storage volume. The physical parameters of the objects must also be known, that is, their height and radius.

        Well, let's say, the same Trump knows more about Saudi Arabia and about its oil without intelligence, than about his wife. Sheikhs have nothing to hide - and so they walk on a short leash.
        But about the rest - to know where the next time "carry democracy"? So in Russia, for example, no matter how much oil is pumped out, democracy will be torn.

            Yes, they did not ruin us. Us Brokeback Dog and Sverdlovsk Alkash sold. And on its own, without these two and their betrayal, America would still "fall apart" and "fall apart."

            And they did not win the Cold War - it did not end. And our “Stalingrad” and our “Kursk Bulge” in the Cold War are yet to come. We have already passed the “Battle of Moscow” in the Cold War.
            They hastened to slap the medals and to award the Brokeback Dog with it. Hitler also "For the Capture of Moscow" managed to stamp and sent out invitations to his parade in Moscow. And where is that Hitler? And these will be there ...

        This data will never be a trade secret in open joint stock companies.

        For on the basis of these data and the valuation of the company as a whole. And stock prices in particular.

        And the value of shares and profit is the main task of the joint-stock company.

        And here are the nets. To increase their own ego, companies disclose information on identified reserves only with the greatest permission and in a dosed manner. Otherwise, the entire oil and gas market will fall apart. Even just the news about a promising field (including halilikli / fakes) is the strongest WMD in this market. And the real resource reserves at the disposal of the country are behind seven seals next to the nuclear case. The rest of the economists and industry experts can only guess at the open info and coffee rinses. Assessment of real resources at the disposal of potential "partners" is carried out by all the intelligence services of the world, this is not news at all - a routine to study the strengths and weaknesses of a potential enemy.

          That is, do you think that oil reserves are underestimating everything and there is actually more than it is published? Immediately I would like your expert opinion on how much it really is about more. 2, 3, 10 times?

            The main thing in this business is the phrase "expected reserves." Assessing the prospects of each field and exploration is a strategic asset. No one will tell you the truth. It’s advantageous for one to overestimate, for others - to underestimate (the grandmother said in two). Let's just say, until the finite resources are exhaustible, dozens more generations, but the process of global redistribution of such will be exacerbated. This is already noticeable without pince-nez.

              What a super-analytics. On coal, you can probably agree. Over the past 5 years, not a single large field has been commissioned in Russia for oil except Vankorsky. Western Siberia is depleted, everyone there now requires tax incentives to maintain the level of production (especially Rosneft), but in general - blessed is anyone who believes.

                Well, it’s generally difficult for me to explain something for exploration and reserves to people who have been looking for their place in life for 40 years and have found the only place where there is no oil. Now there is a period of low (and artificially lowered) prices, therefore it is more profitable to preserve the already explored than to look for new ones. It is simply not profitable. I’ll repeat once again what amount of intelligence, I’m unlikely someone will tell you voluntarily / for free / under torture ... If the intelligence cynically declares “we will dig from me to the next oak,” it means that market confidence is not special.

          Each well cannot have its cost price ...

          for an emulsion is going from many bushes to multiple CPPG installations and many other abbreviations ...

        Mineral reserves are published, and their changes are relatively small over the years. The latest Report on the status and use of mineral resources of the Russian Federation for 2016-2017 was published in September 2018, this year will be the next. In order to read it, you do not need extra efforts of intelligence.

    Rahab (Hebrew רחב, Rahav; also Rahab, Rahava; 2 thousand BC) is a resident of Jericho, a harlot who, according to the Book of Joshua (Nav. 2: 1), she has hidden two spies in her house from the army of Joshua, and for that, when she took the city, she was spared, glorified, with all the household members (Hebrews 11:31 in the list of heroes of the faith) and “declared righteous on the basis of works”, and one of such cases was that she sent on the false trail of the servants of the king (James 2: 24-26). The rest of the population of Jericho, except for the family of Rahab, was completely killed. (Wiki)

    Well, it would be strange if the states did not, and now, after the failure of the “shale revolution”, they will “follow” with special frenzy. The oil reserves of Iraq, Syria and Libya under their control, with Iran are much more complicated, but with Venezuela, China and Russia it will be very difficult.

      What is the difficulty? Nobody will send brigades of saboteurs to oil storages. More or less large oil companies are in contact with the foreign economy. It all comes down to analytics and monitoring. And the data will be provided by the oil producers themselves, oil refiners and buyers.

      In Soviet times, geologists searched for everything and everywhere. All Siberia is verified.
      What was easy to get - mined or mined. Shelves are so heavy in production that no one takes them.
      About 15 years ago, Putin offered to master Shtokman to everyone. No one agreed. The case died out, mining never started.
      Even Brazil was not able to develop its shelf. It is in warm water and light conditions.

            Something was read about the development of technologies for the "revitalization" of old wells, the old methods did not allow to extract all available oil. And there are plenty of such wells on Mother Russia. hi

              Right. In Soviet times, only vertical drilling was mastered.
              Numerous "pockets" of oil were abandoned. Now Russian companies have learned to drill horizontally from BP and others. Actually, the whole of Samatlor now is scooping up such forgotten pockets of oil.

    Why strain so? Set the condition that oil prices will be regulated solely by the United States, to dispose from whom and how much to buy, how much to mine too. Threaten everyone with terrible sanctions and grave consequences for not fulfilling the American order. It remains to sit and wait for someone to come running with the necessary information. For those who read only the first sentence, I inform you that this is irony.

    It is necessary to strictly mirror the attitude towards US diplomats, including the restriction of their movements across the territory of Russia as well as to their notification order. After all, the US Department of State is an integral part of US national intelligence.

    Well, it’s not a new monitoring of well-defined resources in the right country, at the same time we are pumping up the level of tension inside and outside this country, along the way we are preparing a leader with very populist slogans, and when changing power we will ruin the price of this resource, collapsing the competitor’s economy and bring our people on this wave into power. , = profit, you can rob legally.
