The United States considers the oil war with Saudi Arabia a big mistake for Russia

207

Undoubtedly, in recent years, Russia has significantly strengthened its influence in the Middle East region, having made tremendous efforts for this. Now she is rapidly losing her position, having entered into a tough confrontation with Saudi Arabia.


This is stated by Stephen Cook in an article published in the American publication Foreign Policy.

And although, as the author believes, the credibility of Russia in the Middle East after the termination of the OPEC + treaty has significantly weakened, in the region it is considered a more constructive player than the United States.

According to Stephen Cook, in the eyes of the leaders of the Middle East, Moscow looks in a better light than Washington:

Middle East leaders are indeed looking more favorably at the expansion of Russian power. Since Moscow dumped the ideological baggage of Soviet communism, and America looks more and more exhausted, helpless and stupid, regional players see in Russia, if not an alternative to Washington, then at least a player not an example of a more constructive one.

Stephen Cook claims that, having come into conflict with Saudi Arabia, Moscow has clearly overestimated its strength. And now she is trying to cope with the troubles in which she has drawn herself into. He believes that there will be no winners in this battle, everyone will lose.

However, China can win in the Russian-Saudi conflict. Cheap oil will be an excellent tool for him to restore the economy after overcoming the peak of the coronavirus epidemic.

It was previously noted that the oil crisis could play into the hands of India as well.

    Yes, of course. And the USA has absolutely nothing to do with it? Are they just standing by and watching? No matter how. They would be better at doing their own business and would not pop their nose where it should not.
    If this were really a mistake of Russia, then the United States would now silently rub hands and watch, and would not feed from each media resource.
    But in fact, what happens is that they are trying to convince us that this is our mistake. Shish to you all!

          Everything has already been decided. Russia, thanks to the bold and decisive Mnogohodovochnik, has achieved what she strove for many years. The low oil price and a sharp decrease in production volumes. One deft door hit at the OPEC + session, and voila! Two problems that have bothered us so much are eliminated. And it is especially pleasant that even Trump was forced to deal with oil. Rather, at its cost. Russia forced the United States, bent the Saudis, victory after victory in Syria. Pechenegs and Polovtsy overpowered, it remains only a little strenuous effort to survive until 2050.
          The dollar will collapse, America will go bankrupt, the Saudis will run out of oil, and the Chinese will eat all the bats and dogs and die of starvation. We will stay. So win!

          It is reported that the OPEC + oil deal has almost been reached.

          1. The Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia will reduce production to 8,5 million barrels in essence. The remaining countries will reduce production to the level of autumn 2018. Russia's decline will be approximately 2 million barrels per day from 10,4 to 8,5 https://www.rbc.ru/economics/09/04/2020/5e8f7a469a79475b57d90d1f.

          2. The United States will reduce its production by 2-3 million barrels per day by the end of 2020 - http://www.profinance.ru/news/2020/04/10/bx99-ssha-dobycha-nefti-v- ssha-upadet-na-2-mln-bsk-kontsu-goda-vozmozhno-na-3-mln-b.html
          (Collapse)

          3. Mexico, which broke the longest, also agreed to reduce production by 100 thousand barrels in exchange for the US to further reduce production by 250 thousand barrels.

        They are absolutely right. Putin is the most mediocre, cheaply lost. The calculation was based not on analytical calculations, but on an adventurous scenario. Maybe a ride. But not a ride. Attempts to slander the Saudis failed. They themselves made a mockery of the whole world. As happened more than once. Especially fun the world laughed when, in the terminology of the regulars of VO, Svetelysho-Darkest during his last visit to Macron, walked into the toilet accompanied by 6! the guards. Which certainly testified to the good and proper work of the FSO and the extraordinary courage of our national everything. The corresponding video struck the French posted on the network.

                  Not. We are interested in the behavior of a leader. Is he really cool, or is he a coward. And pretends to be a hero. You can fly as you wish with the Siberian Cranes and soak enemies in the toilet, but in the event of a real danger to your own life or health, a person instantly turns into a jelly. On the face, even during a television appeal, uncertainty and fear are read. And all these hide and seek games are nasty. Because behind all this is the hypocritical game of a leader hero. It is a game. Cowardly and sad for all of us. Because instead of verified and necessary decisions, the pseudo hero shakes with fear and entrusts the adoption of strategically important decisions to people unknown to the country.

                      It's not about me. They have already read about you too. It is about this heroic episode.
                      It is uninteresting and has nothing to do with our conversation.
                      Once again we discuss the behavior of the leader of a huge country. Which, judging by some information, with his so-called family hid either in Valdai or elsewhere. Sits there and tries to rule the country. Which is screwed into a tailspin of several crises. Moreover, all these crises are organized by him.
                      In this difficult period, the leader relieves himself of responsibility, does not make independent management decisions.
                      Yes, he doesn’t chew a tie yet. But the enemy’s tanks near Valday or Novo Ogarevo are also not visible.
                      Such behavior is called cowardice and avoidance of responsibility.

      You look deeper and wider.
      FALSE unites these two events.
      The first lie is that as a result of the actions of the national leader, Russia won. This is our loss, monstrous in its consequences. He led us to this.
      The second lie is a lie about the essence of a national leader. The heroic image depicted by the Kremlin propaganda turned out to be a picture on the wall of Papa Carlo’s room. For this picture is hiding completely different. There is no leader who is smart, insightful, bold, prudent, and taking care of the interests of the country. There is a very limited, scared, insecure and I will write directly a hypocritical person. Of which personal well-being is much more interested than the interests of millions of Russians.

        But seriously, what you wrote is complete nonsense, your purely personal opinion, which has nothing to do with reality.
        And are you also very well versed in the global oil market?

      Why does your company immediately start thinking about the vile? Where do these phrases about feces and stuff come from? Some kind of game. In fact, everything is very decent. I mean the video. In general, we must, we simply must know absolutely everything about our leaders. Because in difficult times, we must be sure of them. Enough for us traitors and scoundrels in power such as Gorby and Boriski drunk. We must know whether our leader is cowardly or not. If he is a coward and sits in a bunker, running the country by telephone and is not ready to lay down his head for a good common cause, then the question arises when he will give us up with giblets <when ​​there is a threat to his health or his capital. And if he is not a coward, then the next question. Why does he behave this way. If you are a leader, be one. If not a leader, don't take someone else's place.
      Whether he will press a button about a retaliatory strike or throw a white flag when nuclear missiles fly to the country, this is what I want to understand and know.

    Telegram / nezigar: The victory over the shales is canceled - Russia is ready to join the deal to reduce oil production. The price war in which Sechin dragged Russia in March ended for us in complete defeat. Instead of the proposed 0,5 million barrels a month ago, now it is necessary to cut production by about 2 million.
    Saudi Arabia seems to be ready for a further reduction, from 11,3 million to 8,5 million. But there is a nuance, as they say. Before the start of the price war, the Saudis produced 9,7 million barrels, and then sharply increased production, resenting the unreasonable actions of Russia. Saudi Arabia will be reduced from a new, much higher level. If you count from March, then only 1,2 million.
    The United States does not participate in the deal at all and does not intend to cut its production. If the market situation improves, they will be able to raise production as much as possible when the main competitors are bound by accepted restrictions. Is it okay with the slates?

    The main opponent of the Saudis is not Moscow, but Iran! This is where the low cost of oil is hit, to intercept the customers of its oil. And Russia will lose in this race if it keeps the prices for energy carriers inside the state at the same level, and does not lower them by 2 times. Because the production of goods in Russia will become 2 times more expensive than abroad and production in Russia will fall. As the next plague ends, China will start to work, energy prices will go up, only China will benefit more from this because it will buy oil deposits in other countries cheaper than it would buy now. Constantly rising energy prices are disadvantageous to anyone, because costs are rising and when at a certain stage in the development of technologies their maximum development occurs, without the ability to grow further, oil is specially lowered in price so that investments in new technologies will pay for themselves, and they will replace the old ones. In 1985 it was the same thing, the introduction of new technologies with a payback began, and the Union collapsed itself due to the idiocy and betrayal of its leadership. It can also be with the states. The world is governed not by those who ordinary people think about.

      This is understandable to everyone - from Karl Marx with the company of the best economic theorists of all time to a simple grandfather in the Non-Black Earth Region on a "kopeck" who once every two weeks (out of economy) refills his "swallow" with gasoline, looking for the cheapest gas station around.

      It is not clear only to our oil "effective managers". From their point of view, the main thing in their activities is not oil production to meet the country's needs, but profit. And, naturally, if its price falls on the foreign market, then the lost money must be returned. Where from? Yes, from the domestic market, of course! And what does the production of goods have to do with it, in their opinion? They don’t buy meat in the market and rice in the supermarket near their home, so they don’t think about any production, except oil. People will always buy gasoline. Well, for a week, until the shock wears off, demand will go down ... Well, the plebs will make some noise ... Well, the authorities will scold ... And EXACTLY the authorities, and not those who really rule. And then everything will calm down. Everyone will get used to it.

          That is exactly what the Kremlin propagandists say. But the whole world calls it the surrender of Russia. Saudi Arabia delivered an ultimatum to Russia. Another popular headline for the world press.

          Among those who predicted the collapse of the American financial system, many have already died of old age. Many retired and do not raise this topic anymore.
          Talk about the transition to national currencies did not go further than propaganda.
          Either Russia increases its contribution to world GDP by 10 times, or the dollar forever. The probability of both scenarios is easy to calculate yourself. There is no need to be a dock in the global economy.

              The waiters, I read, have not grown since the 70s. But the number of billionaires has since increased many times over. There is money, though not at all. The elite and the propagandists have.
              While the elites of all countries keep their savings in the United States, you can not worry about them.
              We will be realistic. The only threat to US finances is Yellowstone.

        There is nothing strange.
        The Soviet Union won World War II over fascism.
        And American capital is above the global economic system.
        The dollar has become a global financial measure.
        Weimar Germany once in the late twenties was able to get out of hyperinflation by strictly equating its brand to the cost of a kilogram of rye grain.
        It was named so - "rye brand". Prices began to be expressed not in trillions, but in stamps and pfennigs.
        The modern dollar is tied to oil. Oil confirms its substantial filling. One is confirmed by the other. Not bad, almost brilliant.
        If you forget that this paper is printed by the Yankees as torn.

      And let's look distractedly.
      And why not in the tugriks? Or Maori shells? Why was the oil price tied to the currency of one of the main players in the oil market, which, the currency itself, is not provided with anything except ponte and puffing cheeks and, besides, the pretzels themselves prescribe those with their own economy?

      The economic model.
      We all live here in the same village called "Topwar.ru". I bake pies, you grow cabbage, Sergei (Gray brother) sculpts dishes from clay, and so on. And so we are going to and agree to express the price of any product in my pies (there are some nishtyaks in me !!). And everything is fine, until I either save the filling, then mix the sawdust into the flour, then make the pies smaller so that I have more of them, then I'll napordybach ... And the head of your cabbage, regardless of the quality of my pies, is as worth 5 pies - so it will be worth 5 pies.

      It turns out beautifully? I myself know not. So why not make a universal equivalent something that does not depend on anyone?
      They tried to make gold with this equivalent. There are cons, many advantages ... There was a big plus - such an equivalent, if beneficial, then to everyone. If it is not profitable, then again to everyone. And the biggest minus - it was not beneficial to the United States. After Bretton Wood, they suffered inconvenience until De Gaulle angered America. And then the games of equality ended. And the Jamaican system came. Here is a wrapper for five of my pies for your cabbage swing and calm down. Because I ate the pies myself. Moreover, they gluttoned themselves so that if I again begin to distribute pies instead of a wrapper, then I already owe them so much that I can’t bake for three lives.

      So, with regards to me, for me 50 tugriks per barrel would be much fairer than 50 dollars. Only in Mongolia then the printing press is taken away. laughing

    Sergei hi
    I will try to answer shorter
    In 1944, under the Bretton Woods Agreements, 44 countries' currencies were pegged to the dollar, and the dollar to gold ($ 35 per troy ounce). In August 1971, Nixon temporarily canceled the gold backing of the dollar due to the further impossibility of doing so. To repair the "world system" in December 1971, the Smithsonian Agreement was reached, which established actually new, albeit more flexible pegging of currencies to the dollar, and the price itself became $ 37-38 per troy ounce - in fact, the dollar devalued by 7,7%. In February 1973, there was another devaluation of the dollar against gold to $ 42 - in a year and a half, the dollar devalued by 17%. The value of the dollar as a base currency has fallen.
    Against this background, Nixon is pushing agreements with Saudi Arabia that it sells all its oil only for US dollars in exchange for military assistance and protection of fields, including from Israel. And in 1975, the whole OPEC agreed to sell oil only for US dollars.

        Absolutely right. Therefore, Russia, despite numerous invitations, does not seek OPEC, is content with the status of an observer country. From April 1, 2020, between OPEC countries and countries outside the cartel - Russia, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan (OPEC +) - obligations to reduce oil production ceased due to the non-extension of the contract to reduce production on March 6, 2020.

    The war is not with Saudi Arabia, but with American shales and the shelf.
    And this war has already been won, in the 14th year, the Americans banned the sale of equipment for the production of complex, expensive oil to Russia, in the 20th Russia banned the United States from extracting such oil and producing such equipment.

    The total decline in production is 10 million barrels per day. The United States itself has reduced its production - there is no demand - the market. Everyone has nowhere to store oil - all storage facilities are full.
    Russia refused to first reduce production by 300 thousand at a price of $ 60 per barrel, and now it will reduce by 2.5 million at a price of $ 20 per barrel. Something does not smell like victory. This is a defeat and gigantic losses.

    The conflict between Moscow and the Saudis, who won there, who lost. Forecasts from various kinds of analysts are not enough.
    But the USA takes the first place in oil production, they have about 15%, the Russian Federation and KSU together produce only about 25% of world oil. And the remaining 60% is mined by other countries and far from all of them are members of OPEC.
    Now some media represent us and the Arabs as if they were fools who shoot themselves in the foot, want to completely ruin the shale in the USA, etc. etc. fool
    But is it not possible that with this demarche both Russia and the Saudis act in concert, although they do not advertise it strongly?
    The goal is this: to establish order in pricing, to force not only the Russian Federation and OPEC to work in this direction, albeit with a plus, but also the USA, Canada, Brazil and a number of other manufacturers that really, while OPEC + reduced production, climbed uncontrollably with their own oil to the market.
    It seems that since the current price level is not beneficial to anyone, nevertheless, by joint efforts, it will be pulled up to $ 45-50, despite not the grave consequences of the coronavirus, in the near future.
    If not, then the price itself will return to normal or even significantly exceed it not soon, but it is true because of a fall in investment in production and in the oil industry as a whole.

    The oil war, the most important for the Russian Federation, ended in its terrible defeat. It is inconvenient to write about it directly, but you need to comment on it somehow. Hence such a vague article, without any details of the completed transaction. The new HPP has not yet been invented until the setting is "no losers" (Peskov). Probably it will be promoted.
    If we talk about reality, the question is very difficult.
    1) We proceed from the thesis "the worse, the better", because the oligarchic-mafia regime simply finishes off Russia and must be changed by any means. Then the oil debacle is a boon.
    2) We proceed from the thesis, people are sorry, and we think that the change of post-Soviet cap.power to new authorities can lead to an even worse situation. Then what happened is a disaster. Quit the transaction with OPEC due to 500 thousand barrels at $ 60, and then be forced to cut 2,7 million at 30, this is simply not being commented on.

Here, even Putin’s supporters (all the more so the supporters of capitalism in the Russian Federation) simply must demand a change in the leadership of the Ministry of Energy and the entire leadership of Rosneft (and Gazprom at the same time, because the situation in the gas sector is even worse). But who can encroach on Sechin and Miller. It is sacred.

          Those who know little will soon judge. Are they seriously arguing that several people, guided by their own interests, brought down the market, putting Russia's interests at a disadvantage? It is even difficult for us to imagine what forces and means are involved in this situation. I watched briefly the videoconference when the Saudis listened to what Novak was saying and understood that behind his back he had a State that showed its teeth. And the achieved results will be placed in folders marked "Secret", maybe the grandchildren will have the opportunity to read the memoirs of the participants.

            The point is that the oil price could drop slowly to 45-50, with a lag of a month or two, and not detonate overnight on March 9 to 25, this is what is called a policy that continues the economy.

              The scenario of slow lowering of oil was based on squeezing us out of the Chinese market - the largest consumer of oil today. And blocking for us the Indian market - the most promising consumer in the coming decades. How would it help us for 2-3 months of slow lowering, followed by a full ass? And what consequences do you fear more - an acute crisis, during which it turned out almost impossible - America joined the restrictions (!), Or smooth fluctuations up to 40, then up to 70, but in which our markets shrink to the nearest gas station?
              You look at what is happening - increasing the production of shale oil requires new markets. Iran was under sanctions, in 2018 it was cut off from China. Venezuela helped. As soon as the shale men rose - Venezuela is under sanctions. Syria and Libya are not merchants either. Not traders, note with the active participation of the United States. If the shale industry would increase production by 3-5 million barrels per day in the next 5-7 years, the question would have arisen - who is next for the sanctions on oil? Do you think this is Norway? Or Saudi Arabia? I think that they are not. And the one who is already under sanctions. They will find Skripal, or Boeing will be sent to our base in Latakia, but they will block our oil. Fortunately there is something to replace.
              And today, shale shrinks, the United States is cooperating with OPEC + (for the first time in life). even those who previously had not come close to OPEC reduced production. And in the conditions of the global crisis, the main task is no longer to seize someone’s market, but to save at least what is left - in the United States of shale workers, in Saudi Arabia, the 2030 program, in Europe - industry. Not to fat.

      The cost of shale oil before the fall in oil prices in 2014 was about $ 70. But the crisis prompted the shale industry to optimize costs and improve production technology. This allowed to reduce the cost to $ 35-40 per barrel. But technology does not stand still. Even before the current collapse in prices, shale producers set a goal to reduce the cost of oil production to $ 15 per barrel. This is not yet true for all wells. But the downward trend in shale oil production is simply amazing.

          Vadim, the number of wells is not at all proportional to the amount of oil produced. For your reference, before the collapse of oil prices in 2014, the number of wells in the United States exceeded 1500. The volume of production was less than 9 million barrels per day. At the end of last year, the number of drilled wells was already less than 700 (this is more than 2 times less!), And the volume of oil produced in this case reached an astronomical volume of more than 13 million barrels per day. This is the most in the world! Moreover, over the past year alone, production increased by more than 1 million barrels per day, with an overall significant decrease in the number of wells. This was achieved with the help of continuous improvement of shale oil production technology when a fan of horizontal wells branches out from one vertical wellbore, and the multilevel hydraulic fracturing method is also applied. All this together makes it possible to extract much more oil from each well drilled than before. Technology does not stand still. In the future we will see many more amazing things. The road will be overcome by a walker They are moving forward, despite the difficulties of mastering new technologies. And we?

In any serious crisis, and a serious crisis is brewing now, the Saudis will surrender, they will survive until their time has come, and when the time comes, they will be eaten by the Americans themselves or simply watched by others.

        everything is very logical for me. If you do not believe me, just turn on the first channel and you will see how the authorities want what would happen, but what is in reality, I think you know ... And reality is this, with what they say on TV, they do not combine at all.
        I understand that some not very adequate invented to knock out American shale oil from the market. The idea is not a bad one if the Arabs and the Americans did not sail in the same boat. And even if they were going to do it anyway, the operation had to be prepared in advance, everything should be thought out. I understand that the February decline was unlikely to greatly affect the price of oil and it would still have to cut production, but at least there would not be such a severe collapse. And even, SUDDENLY, if the Kremlin wanted such a collapse, it would be necessary to continue holding on, even if until the middle of summer, what if we could wait for the surrender of the American shale and force the Arabs to begin to cut back alone and after that they would join when the results go.
        The situation with the virus is the same. The gallant statements of the first days, shut up with an incomprehensible mumble later. The central government withdrew all responsibility and dumped it on the regions, without giving either money or authority. Those who do not know how to think, understand nothing and create a mess and lawlessness, exacerbating the situation.
        I work in the furniture industry. No matter how we enter the list of economies affected by the virus, and even we are allowed to work. However, suppliers of foreigners are closed (Italy, China) domestic suppliers only this Monday will release work. Moscow is closed. NU worked for three days, some products have nothing to complete. It is not possible to sell anything, since all shopping centers are closed. New orders cannot be accepted either, for the same reason.
        Obviously, of course, simple is not due to quarantine measures, we probably can’t work without components ... Do you think so? and on top so ...

    Something seems to me that the Saudis with Moscow are playing a show. Here and there, contracts, meetings, and time goes and goes. And it seems that there are clearly no culprits, but the processes are running and going.

    It seems to me that the Russian Federation could use the Yemeni rebels for more productive negotiations with the SA. A couple of launches "assembled on the knee" of the UAV at the terminals ....

    Another oil price allocation specialist? Today it’s already 5 or 6, but actually it doesn’t matter ............. it’s important that no one really describes what the winner received. China and India received cheap raw materials, and what the CA received from winning, the markets , influence, additional funds to the budget and again not.

    In the USA, the oil war with Saudi Arabia is considered a big mistake of Russia - given that in reality the United States merged Russia and Saudi Arabia)

    Herein lies the whole serpentine character of the striped ones, they will do the work themselves, and then they will bring it down from a sick head to a healthy one. And their main goal is to crush all of us, all over the world. They should be crushed at the slightest opportunity, these insolents with the cowboy mentality.

    Thank you for the standard response of the activist. Everything is as it should according to the template. With the usual ending. Why are your manuals not updated? Defect.

    Your letters look like crazy nonsense. Do you really think that in this way you work as an “agent of influence”?
    There are only two options:
    1. You are an animator from the site administration to increase commentability of articles and get more dough.
    2. Terrifying in its wretchedness the state of the "propaganda department of the neighboring state."

    "War" between Russia and OPEC (read - the Saudis) - a match by agreement. Its main goal is to show the USA that no one will allow them to stay in the position of a monkey in a tree for a long time, watching the fight of tigers below and throwing banana skins at them.
    The Saudis are heavily politically dependent on the Americans, so they could not independently arrange price dumping. Russia gave them a reason. The states were worried, as required. Now, even if the US does not officially participate in OPEC +, they will no longer be able to act without any regard for other participants in the oil market. And then ... it will be possible to repeat the lesson.

      Yes, the Americans alone will not do with banana skins. I had to get down from a palm tree and reconcile tigers, who, perhaps, didn’t seriously fight.

    Yeah, Akella missed. And coronovirus, if not by the way .. Yes, and the lack of a normal economy is also not by the way. Putin's integration policy has failed in times of crisis and pandemic.
    I don’t think that the aging leader is capable of constructive steps, he would have to wait until it stops, and then calls came in one after another, and his snickering vassals who have everything got moving, got used to it.

    “They think in the USA” - and not only in the USA, only in Russia they think that this is another multi-move.

    If the Americans did not like the oil war, then Putin is doing everything right.
