Trump announced a plan to end the price war in the oil market

44

The United States is ready to increase duties on oil imports to the United States or introduce new sanctions against Russia. The corresponding plan to end the price war in the oil market was voiced by US President Donald Trump, writes The Wall Street Journal.


According to Trump, the only way to stop the price war ...

According to the newspaper, American producers of shale oil had serious problems as the price fell below the level of profitable production. This happened against the background of the collapse of the OPEC + deal to reduce production after Russia and Saudi Arabia left it.

The American president discussed the current situation with the leaders of American oil companies, senators and congressmen. As a way out of this situation, it is proposed to introduce duties on Russian and Saudi oil on the basis of the law on trade, which was previously applied to China in the framework of the trade war. As well as another option, sanctions against Russia are allowed.

However, if during the talks on April 9, Riyadh and Moscow agree to reduce production or take other steps that will lead to higher oil prices, the White House administration will abandon plans to impose duties on oil products.

Meanwhile, it is reported that US authorities do not plan to reduce oil production.

Earlier it became known that Russia could go for a reduction in oil production, but only with a simultaneous reduction in oil production by other countries, including not only all OPEC countries, but also by such large exporters as Norway, the USA, Mexico, etc.

36 countries will take part in today's OPEC + meeting, the meeting will be held in a videoconference mode.

        Not a bad idea .. But the main thing is that Trump, like the Saudis, panicked this provocation directed precisely against Russia and China! Remember the United States a year ago allocated a separate amount to oppose us .. To see the money ran out and started on their own. What they wanted to be in China and Russia ..))))
        Do not dig into another hole, you yourself will fall into it .. Remember this in the west!
        Yes, the losses are big, but you do not put gentlemen on your knees Russia and China, and nefig scream to the entire Internet and your media are controlled!
        And again the battle continues, as in a song and we only dream of peace .. hi

          What is such a far-reaching conclusion? Trump is more interested in the fall of his own economy and he is ready to squeeze the last out of other countries. The United States has a new big agreement with China, everything is tip-top.

        Well, of course it can be ... or stupidly select everything that Western corporations own in our country. So that later all the sanctions that were introduced to us before that, everyone would like to introduce them, which is why we’ll be so guarded that the US and EU sanctions will seem to us as gentle strokes.
        But this is all so, the lyrics ... I will ask you one simple question that I asked in the next branch, AND WHAT IS THE SIMPLE CITIZEN OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION FROM ALL THIS AGAIN THAT? Will we live richer? Maybe they will lower the rent or the price of gasoline? WHOOOOOOH?

      Well, slates were covered, and then what? Is the US crumbling and falling? Shale is a few percent of GDP, if all oil production is about 8-10%. This the United States will not even notice.
      What about behaving "more naggingly", how do you imagine? Tanks, missiles, bombing of Washington? Our oil is heavy, tarry. Now they do not want to take Russian oil at all, because Trump will impose sanctions on its purchase, as on Iran at one time. Are you living in some kind of illusion? Or do you think that world politics and economics is a world totalizator where bets are accepted?
      As for the interests of the Russian population, this is the tenth question for our authorities.

        You don’t forget - the slates were covered, all those who invested the loot were covered .. But it is insured, therefore, banks will fall .. In addition, the slate is driven in the states where Trump would still like to win in the fall .. So - not everything is so rosy in the American .. And our oil - certain refineries, in particular American ones, are refined for it. Which used to be processed by the Venezuelan. Therefore, they began to take ours. Replacing it light is not so easy, it requires money and time .. But heavy - there is nowhere to take the right quantities except us and Venezuela .. In addition, the refineries not only drive gasoline, they also use fuel oil with diesel fuel, but they are also needed .. You won’t get them from shale.

        ... the economy is a global sweepstake in which bets are accepted ...

        just like that, in the top ten, in the bullseye! Just like William Tell.
        The whole system of world exchanges and the so-called financial institutions is essentially a sweepstakes.
        I think that the ideas there are even cooler.
        You can outlaw all oil sold in the world if it is sold without permission from the United States. And at the same time gas.
        Well, still add equipment for 5G networks ... but whatever you want, then add steering wheels.
        Why is only the Moon privatized? Mess!
        That's all that the Hubble telescope “sees” - this is ours, that is, the American one!
        Well, isn't it beauty?
        And this is not crazy. This is the dialectic of the development of the American approach to its own existence and processes taking place in the world. What is there in the world, in the universe as a whole.

        This is worse than Hitlerism. Adik was not bad, but small. Lebensraum im Osten is the top of his dreams so-and-so.

        Unfortunately, such ambitions are pacified only by a great war. Another way has not yet been invented by mankind.

        You have now introduced a new type of oil classification - tar. Actually, tar is a residual fraction of atmospheric distillation of oil, and Urals brand oil is not heavy, neither according to our and American classification.

      Trump is impudent because he won. And he does not need to reduce production, and indeed he could not even, there all production is in private hands. And the losers, yes, they now need to agree on a reduction in production. And the Kremlin has nowhere to go, you need to be a complete idiot, refuse the OPEC deal, leave the door shut so as not to cut half a million barrels at a price of $ 60, but agree to a reduction of 1.5 million barrels now, at a price of 30 bucks. Propaganda will certainly explain to the people of Russia, the brilliant plan of Putin and the team ....

    In the span, the main supplier to the United States is Canada, then Venezuela, in third place is the Russian Federation. but the Russian Federation and so there is someone to sell. But their "friends" are democrats. who refused to allocate money from the budget to support shale producers, and who have interests in Canada, Venezuela, Iraq and Syria, where they, the Democrats, unleashed a war in order to sit down on oil ...

    Threats are not empty ... but they will not immediately act. So far, back and forth ... the slate will be covered thoroughly ... he already hedged completely after 2015, but it's not free! These are all insurance for which money is paid. And if they stop paying, insurance will stop working ... Another month - another oil for 30 - 35
    and intonation can change. And Russia has long had to start living as if it does not have oil at all - for sale on the foreign market. But there is wheat, in general - food, weapons, high chemistry, electricity ...

    (increase duties on oil imports to the United States or introduce new sanctions against Russia) This is the Key in Trump’s statement. Everything else is dust.
    If it is simpler, there will be duties on the import of oil, which for the Saudis is parallel to more than full. For their main market is Southeast Asia, together with China and also Europe, which is not going to add new duties. And sanctions for Russia! And this is called arrived. If the buyer has the choice to buy at the same price, Saudi unauthorized or Russian under sanctions. That choice is obvious.
    Our geostrategies didn’t show the flaring much.

    Out of 900 shale oil wells at the beginning of the year, only 670 are still in operation - but this is not a reduction, but "optimization".

    Reserve capacities in the United States are close to filling, the stopped petrochemical industry has stopped consuming oil, its local producers are trying to sell it using negative prices - surcharges to buyers who will take oil from fields for free.

    But Trump continues to puff up his cheeks - like we right now, as we introduce duties / sanctions, then we will blossom right away laughing

      To be fair, there were other words of Trump - about the possibility of cutting production in the United States. Yes, the words at the level of "the issue needs to be considered, and maybe we will reduce, or maybe not." But, all the same, this is no longer a position of complete denial of this possibility.

        The Hollywood film company Warner Brothers began work on the series Virus Hunters, which tells about the feat of American doctors who helped (on screen) the EU countries to cope with the epidemic of a mysterious disease that came from China. The premiere of the first season of the series will take place on August 20, 2020.

        According to the plot, the world is overwhelmed by the epidemic of the FLUID-20 disease, created by the Chinese military on the basis of Soviet developments. The only stronghold of mankind free from the terrible virus remains the United States (the number of citizens who, in reality, became ill with the coronavirus developed in the USA, will soon exceed the number of sick Europeans). A group of American doctors landed in Normandy and begins to help local people fight the epidemic, which becomes a turning point in the struggle of mankind for life. The cinematic heroes are confronted by Chinese and Russian special services, the LNR / DNR militants and the Eastern European (probably Serbian) dictator Nefteslav Dragomirovich, who is trying to destroy the EU with the help of an epidemic.

        The budget of the series is planned at 260 million dollars. “It is very important for us to show Europeans that the elder brother did not leave them. He stands nearby and reaches out a helping hand in a difficult time for them, when Russia and China are trying to shake the world order by their actions. We will not allow unprincipled and arrogant propaganda from the East to question Euro-Atlantic unity, ”said film director Joseph Dulles.

        PS The director of the series is clearly chosen by the principle of consanguinity with Joseph Goebbels and Allen Dulles laughing
