US has to work with Saudi Arabia and Russia to reduce oil production

Reducing US oil production was not originally part of Donald Trump's plans. However, the situation in the world has led the United States for the first time in the newest stories I had to go not only to negotiations with other major oil producing countries, but also to join the deal to reduce oil production.


Julian Lee in Bloomberg writes:

US oil producers have gone down a lot more than you think. (...) This means that the US actually has to work together with Saudi Arabia, Russia and other large oil producers to help balance supply and demand in the oil market - even if it wasn’t exactly what President Donald Trump had originally hoped for.

It is noted that now there are even fewer drilling rigs in the United States than it was in the wake of the 2014–2016 crisis, when the “shales” declared their bankruptcy one by one.

Julian Lee writes in his article that Trump, of course, would like the main volumes of the reduction in the production of “black gold” to fall on other players - Saudi Arabia, Russia - but “the world market makes sure that each country parties to the new OPEC + agreement fully complied with its obligations. ”

Meanwhile, reports are coming from Saudi Arabia that Riyadh intends to implement a food security program. Against the backdrop of the crisis, the kingdom authorities were preoccupied with the need to accumulate sufficient food reserves. To ensure food security, the possibility of deepening cooperation with India is being considered.

Ambassador of India to Saudi Arabia:

India today largely depends on the supply of Saudi oil, and Saudi Arabia considers India as the main element of its food security. The Kingdom has determined that India is the best option for the supply of rice, red meat, sugar, spices, and milk powder. 75 percent of Basmati rice consumed is imported by Saudi Arabia from India.

Against this background, it became known that the company Saudi company SALIC, specializing in investments in agriculture and specifically the livestock sector (it belongs to the state Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia), is already acquiring shares in Indian companies in the agricultural sector. So, invested in a rice company LT. Negotiations are underway to purchase a stake in India's Allana Foods.

Today, Saudi Arabia is India's fourth largest trading partner. The total turnover is $ 34 billion. At the same time, $ 24 billion is India's total imports of Saudi crude oil. And these huge volumes of oil satisfy the volume of the Indian economy so far by only 18 percent.

    Despite the fact that fewer drilling rigs are operating than in 2016, more oil is produced than in 2016.
    2016-May 8802 thousand barrels per day
    2020-May 11900 thousand barrels per day

      Production has already dropped by 1,1 million barrels per day. Losses and reductions are also likely in the future. According to the latest data from Rystad Energy, oil production in the United States may decline by about 2 million barrels per day by the end of June. that new wells and drilling volumes are declining, "Rystad said in a statement. Expert Philippe Verleger says the decline in production is much larger. According to his latest research, as of May 10, production has dropped by almost 4 million barrels per day from its peak. they physically cannot increase it since there is nowhere to store it stupidly. I'm afraid the states, for the sake of certain goals, will also underestimate these figures, because this will greatly affect the quotes that are no longer gushing. we will see. everything will become more or less clear in a couple of months.

      In Texas, "traditional" oil, like in Russia, will survive,
      the shelf and shales will be bent by them. The Americans were going to squeeze out the markets - they did not.
      this is a victory, but everyone suffers losses in the war, the same in oil.

        Forced agreements or decisions .... yourself, yourself, not from what you want, just NECESSARY.
        If someone decides to break them, others will respond with a moment, because they will be forced to do the same.
        Swaying back and forth, no one will be for the future.
        But, this is so, the obvious, but what and how is likely to happen ??? yes FIG knows?

      Do not flatter yourself. In China, about 350 BC began oil production by drilling holes in the ground. And they were the first to develop oil shale in the USSR, in Donbas, in 1954, made hydraulic fracturing of coal seams and produced gas. And before Leningrad, before the start of the war, oil and gas were extracted from oil shale.

    12. In April, US budget revenues were $ 241 yards, and expenditures of $ 979 yards - a "modest" gap of three and a half times and a deficit of $ 737 yards (at the peak of the 2008-2009 crash, the monthly deficit reached "only" $ 220 yards at was more than three times less).

    13. ... the total number (of unemployment claims) for eight weeks amounted to 36,47 million, which is significantly worse than the previous worst eight-week period in the last 50-odd years.

    ... what is most worrying is that over the past eight weeks, far more Americans have applied for unemployment benefits than jobs received during the last decade after the end of the Great Recession ... (22,13 million received over the decade, 36,47 million lost in 8 weeks)

      The USA has the most complete and reliable statistics, I am glad that you finally understood this.

      Specifically, all these falls are caused by a pandemic, the shutdown of production has no economic basis.
      Factories were stopped by a political decision, so all this statistics is rubbish.
      Both in 1929 and 2008, the crisis had a financial foundation.
      The current fall is not connected with the economy at all.

      Now we need to look at trends, and they are such that the United States will return key production back, this is an inevitable process.
      A contract has already been signed with Taiwan's largest chip maker TSMC. The company is investing $ 12 billion and will build a chip factory in the United States.
      The second largest importer of chips to China, the American Qualcomm.
      95% of the chips your beloved China buys abroad.
      You can look at the real statistics of the United States and raise the painted Chinese numbers.
      Your right.

    Yeah, "you have to work." Some installations will be disconnected, prices will rise - they will be turned on.
    Someone go broke. Not the first time.

    Not for nothing in many articles indicate the number of closed since 12, 14 or from 15-16 years. Those. every year someone leaves, someone comes to USA.

    The Americans should not work with the price of oil, but so that it remains in dollars! In parallel, solve problems with China, which is casting aside the role of a cash cow. Potential inflation from freshly printed tons of dollars also needs to be pushed into the corners.

    Greed drove everyone to the point that an excess of oil had formed and the price had fallen so much that only China was comfortable with such a situation. But in my opinion only Russia, or rather, citizens, suffers from this.

    The USA, as a state, does not "work" with anyone in this direction. The market is working. The highest-cost enterprises stop their work. The market conditions will change and they (or others instead of them) will open. And again, the United States, as a state, will not take any part in this.
