It became known about the problems of the US contingent with Syrian oil


Reports from Syria suggest that in recent weeks, the Syrian province of Idlib, which used to be the hottest point in the SAR, today has become almost one of the most peaceful regions in the country. Things are much more complicated in the north of Syria, as well as in the provinces of Homs, Damascus and Deir ez-Zor.


Israeli strike aviation in the vicinity of the Syrian capital, according to SOHR, claimed at least 7 lives. And the three dead are civilians. The other four victims of the missile strike, which, as previously reported by "VO", was carried out from Lebanese airspace, are representatives of the Hezbollah group.

Against this background, drones of the American coalition appeared in the air over the province of Deir ez-Zor, in the area of ​​oil fields. They circled the territories where there are representatives of the American military contingent and Kurdish detachments, which actually control the illegal extraction of oil and its subsequent smuggling.

Recently, however, significant problems have arisen with oil in Syria for the United States. The cause of the problems is the extremely low price of “black gold”. If we continue to export oil from Syria by oil-loading vehicles (tanks), for example, to Iraq, then such transportation will ultimately cost more than the extracted oil itself. The Americans cannot use the pipelines to the full extent, since they are leading to territories controlled by the Syrian government army.

In this regard, according to some reports, the Americans decided to significantly reduce the volume of crude oil exported from controlled fields in Syria, and to stop it at all in some areas using the available storage facilities. However, they fear that the SAA may take advantage of the situation and try to take control of the oil fields north of Deir ez-Zor and the Euphrates River. For this, the situation is monitored using drones. Also, US troops use helicopters.

It became known about the problems of the US contingent with Syrian oil


On the map, the territories marked by the SAA are marked in red, and Kurdish detachments and US troops in yellow (the yellow part of the map shows signs of oil production sites).

Previously reported the transfer of F-35A fighters to the Jordanian air base - closer to the borders of Syria. The US Air Force is ready to use this aircraft if the SAA tries to seize the initiative in Deir ez-Zor and return the oil fields to the official Syrian authorities.

    Of course it is necessary to return oil to the Syrians. But for this, it is necessary to create conditions that are not acceptable for oil control for the Americans. For example, a guerrilla war on oil fields, the destruction of bulk docks by wild unknown gangs, tribes, etc. There are options, but vryatli this task of today and tomorrow. Americans came there for a long time. They are so far comfortable at all bases both in Syria and in Iraq and Jordan. And Turkey is not far away. Therefore, the Syrians will not climb in the foreseeable future for the Euphrates. Some time ago, the Americans very mercilessly showed what would happen in this case.

        hi , Dmitry.
        Apparently, yes. But what’s interesting is that the Americans in this region of Syria lost almost all of their local supporters as a result of betrayals, and now new groups are being recruited for money to protect the oil fields.

        But then two (IMHO) questions immediately arise: why does the Amer group in Syria need this oil, because you won’t send it to the states (to whom will this raw material go?); The United States sent emirates oil to its “macaque” in its overseas because its shale orders to live long and certainly Syrian is not needed in the United States itself.

            It was the partisans who expelled the United States from Vietnam.
            When, after Iran’s strike, “unknown terrorists” continued the missile attacks on the US base in Baghdad, the Americans fled.
            So, whatever the “merciless” answer, the partisans are effective against the Americans. They really can quickly destroy a regular army. But in response to partisan attacks, they bomb civilians in response, thereby increasing the number of partisans.

      A lot of meanings.

      1) And the main one from the beginning. Each held rocking chair - Assad will not get it. That is, he is now in short supply. Even taking into account low prices - delivery is expensive + not all of this is done, which means even more expensive. That is, classic - so that the neighbor does not get it.

      2) Increasing influence in the region. They can use this to manipulate Kurdish tribes. It is the United States that holds the main asset of Zaefrati Kurdistan.

      3) It is oil in the ground. Today, prices are bargain, after 5 years at 100.

If this continues to continue, then they will have such a rush beyond the puddle that they will not be up to Syria with its oil. It’s a pity, of course, that political events are taking place so slowly and you can’t fall asleep for 20-50 years and look at what and how there will be.

      The Americans will be perverted, but will find a way out how to make the theft of Syrian oil profitable again. For example, they will present Syria with an invoice for protecting oil fields from the “defeated” ISIS, or for maintaining oil wells in working condition, or for storing Syrian oil in tanks both in Syria, Iraq and the USA. There would be a desire for the United States to make a profit, and there is always a “lamb” to slaughter a hungry wolf.

    And therefore, the United States should not bring profits quite indirectly, let alone pay off.

    Not mine, but exhaustively: "Especially for those who still believe that the stork brings children that the United States came to Syria for oil.
    Even in the good pre-war times, Syria produced only about 400 thousand barrels of medium-quality oil per day, of which 80% was consumed by itself immediately. (For comparison, Libya produces 1.4 -1.8 million barrels per day, and the entire Middle East produces 28.5 million barrels per day, global consumption up to 89 million barrels per day). In the US, the strategic oil reserve alone is nearly 700 million barrels. In other words, this is all Syrian oil to the last drop in 5 (five!) Years of intensive production. With their cash supply, the United States can feed the whole world for a week.

    For those interested in the topic:
    Syria has never been a transit hub for oil exports, there are no modernly equipped oil ports, although earlier Iraqi oil was pumped through the pipeline and poured into tankers. Yes, all kinds of banduks poured oil into oil tankers and somewhere (I remember, even to Turkey) sold it in small ways, but this is all rubbish in the general oil flow.
    Oil flows around the world from the Middle East go in three directions: through the Arabian Sea to the Asian market or, bending around Africa with access to the Atlantic Ocean, and the last option - through the Suez Canal and across the Mediterranean to European markets.
    More than 80% of the cargo ships that go into the Mediterranean Sea do not even approach the coast of Syria. A few hundred kilometers near the Syrian border, there is a large port in Turkey, which combines oil flows from Iraq and Azerbaijan - Ceyhan Oil Terminal, which has a peak load of up to 2 million barrels per day, but actually draws about 1.1 million barrels per day. Syria, with its oil capabilities there is nothing to do there. "

      No wonder a huge mass of tankers accumulated off the coast of America.

      ))) Tankers accumulated there because they were rented as fuel depots ..

    The Syrians need to work with the Kurds to tear off their exclusive filth and together with them not give rest to the oil thieves. Then it will be hard for the occupiers in Syria.

    And if you attack a field, say from a drone, will the mattresses put out the fire, or will they leave this field, given that oil has fallen in price?

    The gift inflicted by Israeli aircraft around the Syrian capital claimed at least 7 lives, according to SOHR. And the three dead are civilians.

    And then the Jews are surprised why they do not like them, they are fighting the terrorists. And then the martyrs explode.

    I can’t understand why the UN is silent about this. Okay, our people are silent, by and large we don’t care, we have limited interests there. Why is Syria itself silent?
