The Western media report versions of the reasons for the fall in oil prices and the Saudi "ultimatum" to Moscow


The French edition of La Tribune decided to explain to its readers why there were problems in the global energy market. The author of the “explanation” was journalist Jerome Maren. He “laid out” the situation in several questions and answers. What specific questions and answers are we talking about?


1 Question: Why did oil prices collapse from 64 to 22 dollars per barrel in a short time?

Mr. Maren is deeply convinced that all this happened due to coronavirus and Russia. I immediately recall the famous tirade of Barack Obama, who in his presidency declared "three world threats - Ebola, Russia and ISIS (prohibited in the Russian Federation)."

From La Tribune:

The fall in oil prices is also associated with Russia's refusal to reduce production at the OPEC + meeting. Then an immediate response from Saudi Arabia followed.

It is strange that the author did not remember the United States, which initially held the position not to support the decline in production.

2 Question: Why did Russia refuse to reduce oil production?

Jerome Maren:

It is believed that maintaining low prices could inflict a fatal blow on the American shale, a fragile sector that needs a barrel no cheaper than $ 50 to make a profit.

3 Question: Why did Saudi Arabia respond so sharply?

An author at La Tribune reports that Riyadh's goal, it turns out, is to "preserve the OPEC + deal."

4 Question: Does Russia and Saudi Arabia have something to lose?

The author believes that Saudi Arabia is in a better position, since the cost of production there is $ 2,8 per barrel, and in Russia it reaches $ 20. At the same time, the French observer overlooks an important detail: the price of oil is formed not only from the price of its physical production, but also from the price of transportation. And here, Russia already has significantly more advantages compared to Saudi Arabia due to the presence of an extensive network of pipelines both domestically and in the “export” direction.

From the material:

These manufacturers still will not be able to resist for a long time. Both countries have financial reserves, but they are not inexhaustible.

5 Question: Why will Riyadh and Moscow negotiate again?

In a French newspaper, it is stated that these negotiations will take place for the reason that Russia and Saudi Arabia are not interested in a long-term confrontation, which can only aggravate the economic situation throughout the world.

As a result, the author notes that US President Donald Trump, who is “ready to mediate,” intervened.

Against this background, statements appeared about the allegedly Saudi ultimatum to Moscow. Western media say that Riyadh allegedly insists that Russia reduce production more than other participants in the OPEC + deal. But the ultimatum implies “punitive measures” in case of refusal. If so, then what kind of “punitive measures” is Riyadh ready to introduce: to increase production volumes again, bringing down oil, and at the same time “burning off” its own reserves?

    At the same time, dumping the US, a competitor in the market. The budget of Riyadh is made up at the rate of $ 50 per barrel, they will simply fly into the pipe themselves. And we will endure, not the first time. request

      Why stupid? After all, it is well known that the Saudis are a vassal of the United States, with what fright will they spoil their master?

        You are absolutely RIGHT, especially in the last paragraph. Rosneft will now use Leontief’s unit in every way to explain to us that the role in this “kipip” to Rosneft is minimal.
        Prior to the key meeting of OPEC +, the media reported that the opportunities for oil production were increased. Here is greed and incompetence and a stupid desire to show iron balls ruined.
        Incompetent, but trusted friends will still drive!

          Against this background, an endless total lie has already hardened, which the Saudis easily refuted by the statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, they have already laid out this speech at the VO, after which the President of the Russian Federation has already agreed to a reduction in production, but it’s already clear how the alignment will look and who will dictate it. It will look like this with a total reduction of 10 million, OPEC will reduce its 5 and require about 5 from the Russian Federation. belay
          And then our excellent government distinguished itself by issuing a decree banning the import of fuel and lubricants !!! this is so that cheap gasoline does not flood in the Russian Federation. Are we again hostage or captive?

                and what do I say of the Saudis? should I believe them more than ours?))) you're funny) these games are quite common when negotiations are underway. and there’s nothing special about them. it was the Saudis who created a tantrum when we simply did not want to cut back on production. Did Russia threaten anyone? no dumping with prices? no. all this was done by the Saudis. there the number was 500 at all, and suddenly now they agree to reduce as much as 3.5) well, they would have reduced it at their own expense and there would have been no such conflict. all that happened is a tantrum of pure water. and everyone understands whose. the slate has a much stronger impact on the Saudis than on us. it’s not us who brought the company to IPO, but the Saudis, etc. etc. etc. you just don’t want to understand only the one thing that is beneficial for Russia in this situation is a deal involving the states. otherwise, the more we reduce the more market they capture. I repeat, while we were in the transaction, the guardianship of the states filled everything with their product that was being reduced. and for a couple of years while we were freezing projects ahead of us in the market. a few more years of such dynamics, and even if prices were high revenues would still fall.

                Well, I read it. As a woman I could clearly see the female logic, which the Saudis took advantage of in their juggling: since Russia refused the proposed reduction, it means Russia is to blame (for everything), but according to normal logic, the main thing here is not the reduction itself (but at least the increment), but the proportion of complicity in this perturbation. According to the proposed proportion, Russia should be the main patient - hence the refusal of complicity. Putin revealed the unnamed essence of the result of this perturbation, and the Arabs wanted to be purely feminine - so that everyone would see that the man (in this case Russia) was to blame for everything.

                    Again, the main thing here is preportation - and how much was it suggested that Russia shrink others? Regarding the "force" - even immediately after the breakdown of the negotiations, Novak stated in a soft manner that we would probably return to the negotiations and, probably, somewhere in April - so that everything had been calculated in advance. Another thing is about the benefits of Rosiii: it turns out that Russia is Sechin.

            No! Only 3 million barrels are required of the Russian Federation! Only this is impossible for the Russian Federation! 11,5 million - 4,5 million (Russia's own needs) -3,0 million (reduction) = 4,5 million export! This is not enough and INCREDIBLY little for the Russian Federation. In this case, the Russian Federation is VERY STRONGLY “pushed” in the markets! Today, the ACTUAL price of URALS in Novorossiysk costs $ 19,5. Do not confuse it with the speculative price on the exchange!

                It is necessary to compensate for the “overhang” of excess oil demand of 10,0 million barrels per day. This is divided by 3,0 million RF and CA, the remaining 4,0 million. Under US law, you can’t enter into cartel conspiracies!

            the main criterion in the new realities will be how long the people will be on self-isolation in the Russian Federation and among the Arabs and the number of unemployed people and who will spend the accumulated fat faster because when the oil started a war with custody there was a slightly different reality ....

I doubt that it is a troll, rather a camouflage provocateur under the Stalinist communist. There have been many of them recently, and some "communists" have long merged with ultra-right liberals with their rants. When the left opposition cannot offer anything real to its electorate, it merges with the right. Here at VO this has become the norm.

      The budget for 2020 at KSA is $ 272 billion.

      Current reserves of KSA - $ 501.8 billion. Plus the ability to lend. Plus the ability to cut back on appetites by cutting down on a number of construction and image-building programs. By type - steeper / higher / harder than in the UAE / China.

          They have a penny price of oil (that is, even a reference level of 18-20 is not at a loss). They have quite a few other areas of income for themselves, while the same Sabik manages money, larger than the budgets of many countries, including European ones. And he has low oil prices, even a plus.

          If the budget is not cut very much, then they will live on a pillow for 5 years. If you introduce real austerity, cut the same military budget, they spend on the army - 78 billion, this is more than Russia and less than just China and the United States. Cut different projects of image character, level so that the coolest in the world, bite the Chinese and the emirates. Leave only profitable or giving places in the long term, then you can stretch the pillow for 7-8 years.

      1. USA and CA will find a common language. For example, SA plans to buy new weapons from the US
      2. The gold and foreign exchange reserves of the Russian Federation and the CA are approximately the same, but the population is significantly different - the SA is 34 million in the Russian Federation - 146 million. Therefore, we have much worse per capita.

          You see, in the West, the media is private. And the journalist is obliged to broadcast the views of the owner to the public.
          The owner said that the Russians occupied Donbass, the New York Times editor sent a journalist to Ukraine, he climbed the "front" on both sides, and wrote that there are no Russian troops, local Aborigines are fighting. The editor, in addition to this, released the article. A week later, the New York Times had another editor in chief, and the journalist left for Utah.

        what is not thought out in their actions? have you seen the dynamics of state oil exports in recent years? the more we reduce the more market they capture. in fact, there was no decline, for the states filled all this right there. and from scratch they practically overtook us in export. but the market did not grow at such a pace. while we were reduced without states in the contract, we were simply squeezed out of the markets, you already understand.

                The ambush for the Americans was that they were sent back in 2008. When the United States warmly approved the killing of UN peacekeepers and condemned the cessation of genocide. And then Tolya and Vova said, “Uh! Something is not right.” And they began to repair the army.
                Now Russian interests are increasingly at odds with American ones. I would even say that for half a year oil 'for 20 is very beneficial for us, since Obama's PMC (which ISIS) will cease to be profitable.

          Historically, in the United States, oil refining is based on imported raw materials, and production is exported. Low prices are good for refining and consumers, and politically these are the votes of voters consuming petroleum products. But this is fatal for miners, and extremely unpleasant for banks and insurance, on whose money this banquet, i.e. for financial circles, and these are politically the voices of financiers.
          Such is the situation in which the political system is "independent" of fluctuations in oil prices in a particularly perverse form laughing

      All right, hysteria of Saudi and USA confirmation. Russia does not need a deal without the United States. If the United States shuts down oil imports, they will free the markets. If the Americans bend the Saudis and at their expense want to drive, then this is also unlikely to suit.
      Saudis cannot do anything against Russian oil workers. And the United States has only two ways (but the end is the same) - either to negotiate or to close all production to local consumption.

    Note to the journalist:
    Shale (and not only) oil produced in the United States is too light for American refineries. They are tuned for the oil that was previously received from Venezuela and the Arab countries.
    Venezuela is under the sanctions of the Yankees, and Arab oil is not enough for the needs of the US refineries. Therefore, Russia in recent months has been supplying the United States with large volumes of Urals crude.
    If Trump introduces a duty on oil from KSA and the Russian Federation, the refineries will simply stand up.

    Fortune telling again on coffee grounds.
    What did their iksperdy say over the hill ....

    Here are some articles about the opinions of oil workers for some reason.

    But it is clear that according to the media, it was not Sechin who threw the agreement with the Arabs, but the Arabs brazenly broke the agreement ....

    News media and people are especially pleased that the Saudis allegedly counted on oil for 80 bucks. Which has not happened since 2014 ...

    The stabilization fund has long been gone. There is the NWF of Russia.

    is there exactly? It wasn’t him who was taken to London when they lost gold bullion at Sheremetyevo?

    It is time to understand that the days when it was possible to speak ultimatum with Russia have already passed.

    Now it was not clear. But what about Russia lately, everything from Luxembourg to the United States speaks and acts? or am I not living in that Russia?

    Russia warned of a possible increase in food prices up to 20%
    Manufacturers and suppliers of food called for a review of procurement prices - a maximum of 15-20%.

    just warned, then increase, we have everything honestly. and domestic producers support- banned the import of cheap gasoline. they take care of us with all their might. "in the morning I smear a sandwich - immediately a thought, but as a people, caviar does not go into the throat ...". God forbid, people save an extra penny, at least on what, save. oh yes, I forgot, wild plants, fallen leaves, penalties for debt, fuck you cheap gasoline?

    We will not take in the West - we will extradite from the population ...
    Position...

    not a position, but a way of life. in the West it’s hard to take; recent events speak of this. one must think that one must do something, but Sechin cannot, nothing, he is a teacher of a foreign language, not an oilman. but it’s easy to tear it off from your own people, and Vova will help, or rather, it has already helped, I have forbidden to supply cheap gas, there was no competitor to Schaub

    Venezuela is under the sanctions of the Yankees, and Arab oil is not enough for the needs of the US refineries. Therefore, Russia in recent months has been supplying the United States with large volumes of Urals brand raw materials.

    Arab oil is the lightest; Venezuela has a bit heavier. our oil is different, and the Urals is a mixture of oils, but not the lightest, it will be heavier than all

    I'm interested here, but what prevented the author from posting a link to this article in the Le Tribune and let the readers of VO read and draw their own conclusions !? Tea does not live in the 70-80s, but a century of numbers! There, in the article, if you read it all and not take phrases out of context, it’s not even so written. The author notes the fact that a decrease of even 10-15 million barrels per day will only give a temporary increase in oil prices and predicts a further drop in prices to $ 10 per barrel. It also regrets that such an agreement is adopted, if accepted !, too late.
    For those who wish I give a reference! (https://www.latribune.fr/entreprises-finance/industrie/energie-environnement/chute-des-cours-conflit-entre-riyad-et-moscou-intervention-de-trump-la-crise-petroliere-en -neuf-questions-844292.html)

    The Saudis are bluffing, but the natural craving for the show-off does not allow them to dutifully lower their lush-head in front of the king.
    Short memory. Under punitive measures are they terrorist attacks They promise us ??? Well, nothing, soon the Saudis themselves in tight sand huts will bask at the campfire on a camel dung, if they do not change their minds

    The author of the “clarification” was journalist Jerome Maren

    Was there a more competent "clarifier" among the paddlers? Sadly ... sad
