Oil at 40: Saudi Arabia again raised selling prices


After months at extremely low price points, a barrel of Brent crude oil came close to a very important psychological mark of $ 40. At 12:00 Moscow time on June 2, the price rose above $ 39,5 per barrel. At the moment, there is a correction in the range of 39-39,5 dollars.


$ 40 per barrel is an important mark, since for many countries the oil segments of the budgets for 2020 were imposed, starting from this mark as the minimum. Moreover, at a price of $ 40 per barrel, there is the possibility of a new investment in exploration and in the creation of new jobs for oil companies.

Against this background, information comes from the US that the administration of President Trump is going to cancel the requirements for methane emissions. The US Environmental Protection Agency has introduced a new rule on the "methane" standard for oil companies, which is far more "liberalized."

It should be recalled that in the US, oil companies were obliged to reduce methane emissions in 2016. Then the administration of Barack Obama insisted on this, saying that this is a step towards reducing the technological pressure on the environment. And if large companies in the USA are ready to adhere to the “Obama” rule, medium and small companies have earlier turned to Trump with a proposal to abolish strict emission standards.

It is expected that the rule adopted by Obama will be canceled by the end of July.

Meanwhile, reports are coming from Saudi Arabia that in July it will again raise selling prices for oil exports. Experts say that Riyadh is going to raise the bar price for Arab Light oil by $ 3,8. This despite the fact that Riyadh, from which Asian markets were expected to lower prices, raised selling prices in June, by 1,4 dollars per barrel. In this regard, it is expected that oil will exceed the mentioned threshold of $ 40 in the near future.

    For an ordinary person who is not related to work in Gazprom or not an oligarch, the price of oil does not matter. The price of gas at a gas station will not change. The rent will also not be less. Pensions will not be more, as well as the retirement age will not be less. Or am I wrong?

      Yes, of course they are. An ordinary person, when he watches the news of Channel 1 of the Russian Federation, CNN, France Press or Dolce Welle, as far as stock quotes, stock turmoil, swings with the price of oil, gas or gold, and other "business" information are concerned, he only thinks about , why the hell did he listen to all this crazy nonsense, when he doesn’t have any high-yielding stocks, an oil and gas well, or at worst a gold mine, and the news channels ring from morning till night only as if from this his life is very dependent.

        A good answer! And I thought it was a sinful thing that I got to the site of the oligarchs. It’s good that in addition to the oligarchs and oil hucksters (the price of oil really matters only for their well-being) there are ordinary people with a small pension and a salary that don’t the heat is not cold.

So in my commentary there is a strict statement of a historical fact. Now you can not stand on your knees, not necessarily.

          PS Vadik, you put up with my choice, my president is already 20 years old. you endure and whine. therefore you are offended and angry. Because you endure.

          PPS you don’t even bark, Vadik, understand? You just endure and whine on the forums. And 20 years is not the limit for you - 100% information

          How did it happen that there is such dandruff on the forums that can hint that 86% of the country's population is in the wrong format? I think that the more articles Skomorokhov will have, the more there will be such characters as Latynina and such a Vadik

If everything was well organized, as you say, then we would increase in the population, expand in the markets, but this does not happen. We are only cutting back.

                  Well, the word "grown" is becoming clear. Leonid you have very vague ideas in the economy. A country can be a leader in one industry and its inhabitants can have a high standard of living, or it can be a leader in several industries and have a lower standard of living. Or it may not produce anything at all, but engage only in services and be an economically developed country.
                  What has grown, grown or grown there is not the level of conversation about the economy. There are clear indicators of GDP (PPP), there is a structure of GDP, there are indicators of export, import, trade balance, gold and foreign exchange reserves, external debt, average wages, and purchasing power.
                  Everything else, for example, what you write is a set of phrases. They do not say or show anything.

      You are absolutely wrong. Let me remind you that almost all of your household appliances and electronics are imported and bought for money recalculated from the dollar / euro.

      The chart below shows the jumps in the average cost of a product (a sophisticated router as an example) in the market. Price varies with the value of the dollar.


      In this case, with a drop in oil and a drop in the ruble, the price of the months of spring rose sharply. Now oil has grown - the ruble has strengthened -> the price of the product has decreased and is slowly trying to recoup. The higher the cost of the product, the greater the difference. So to summarize, the life of any average Russian today directly depends on the price of oil. At the beginning of the year, it was generally possible to get up in the morning and first run to look at quotes in order to be able to somehow react to upcoming changes and plan your own near future.

      Moreover, many government agencies still depend on imported equipment and electronics, so the higher the final cost, the greater the burden on the budget (but in reality, this is a shortage of modern equipment for the same structures of our cyber security.)

          In order not to have speeches, they stopped raising prices at a large amount at a time, now the price of fuel rises monthly by 30 - 40 kopecks per liter, as a result, last year the price went up by more than 10%. Now, because of the cove, it has stopped, as soon as they say that everything is over, look how they will catch up. All our financial losses at our expense compensate.

      Saudi Arabia has given Rosneft to Europe after Rosneft’s attempt to expand this market. At the same time, she kept her budget, and she helped her elder brother (or daddy) save the shale. Although Daddy himself would have done it easily, the wagon is good. Proven earlier by more global crises.
      Unlike us, unfortunately.
      They are trying to realize our previously expanded production opportunities in China at a loss. Peremoga!

    Meanwhile, reports are coming from Saudi Arabia that in July it will again raise selling prices for oil exports.
    Well, not constant, these Saudi primers! Like women of easy virtue. They didn’t have a party laughing which could ask for what was done. bully

    Some analysts suggest a rebound in oil prices above $ 120. The collapse in oil prices led to the fact that shale oil companies closed. And the specifics of its production is such that it is impossible to preserve the well. The barrel collapses (horizontal), and drilling a new one is quite an expensive event. All this will lead to a shortage of raw materials ..

        If an artificial oil production crisis is not done, but most likely it will be done by any means, the first signal will be a correct report that half of the existing oil fields will remain for three to four years of production and then a sharp decline will be further more the next massive attack on tankers in the Persian Gulf and Saudi refineries , storages and even the Katarovskys will arrange a coup d'état with military operations and there hi gas and oil production, American and Australian offices will finish dumping on LNG - oil and gas prices will break through the price ceiling.

      Well closed, and okay. This should concern only Americans. Shale oil, by itself, made up a very small fraction of global production. And the total price of oil depends on consumption, that is, on the state of the global economy. And here the forecasts are not comforting.

            An intelligent person remembers everything as it is. It’s not so difficult to evaluate all the pros and cons and bring the overall balance.

    After months at extremely low price points, a barrel of Brent crude oil came close to a very important psychological mark of $ 40.


    Q.E.D. The fall in prices was pre-planned, carried out in tandem with the United States. After resolving their issues, the parties, as agreed, began to return to their previous positions.
    During this time, in the USA, small owners of the shale business were overbought by large players, now they will be facilitated by removing the “methane” requirement.

    Some optimists are trying to object, they say, temporary losses. As soon as quarantine is removed, everything will naturally recover. So no. Rolls-Royce Holdings Plc, one of the world's leading aircraft engine manufacturers, announced the upcoming layoffs of 8 employees. This means that the industry is really frozen for a long time.

    It follows from this that a cumulative long-term decline in oil demand is expected from the previous 99 to a probable 67 million barrels per day. And this is a very serious problem, which until the end of 2020 will not resolve in any way. Therefore, the Russian government, undoubtedly, must take this factor into account in its strategy for overcoming the crisis. The Russian Federation has no external debt than some bankrupts - more than 20 trilliks) laughing

    Where and how is shale oil produced?

    Recently, major changes in the world oil production system have occurred, primarily due to the emergence of new technologies. The media immediately dubbed this phenomenon nothing more than a “shale revolution,” and news about it continues to excite global news agencies. The main "revolutionaries" were the United States, which achieved outstanding results in this area.

    It is shale oil in the United States that enabled this country to become one of the world leaders in terms of hydrocarbon production, reduce motor fuel prices in the domestic market and become one of the largest oil exporters. Here's the thing: at the industrial scale of shale oil production, hydraulic fractures cause millions tons of aqueous chemical solutions injected into the well, which contain a huge amount (about 700 items) of substances hazardous to human life and health. For example, in the United States, tap water can be set on fire near the places of shale oil production, since it is very strongly mixed with methane. Already, the health of residents of these areas of America is significantly deteriorating due to poisoning by methane and other toxins.

    Another problem with fracking is that it requires huge amounts of fresh water, the deficit of which is exacerbating every year. The richest US state of California can actually introduce restrictions on water consumption.

    All of these factors lead to protests by residents of those areas in which shale oil production is already underway or is only planned. Moreover, some countries (France, the Netherlands, Bulgaria) have banned the use of fracking in their territories at the legislative level. Welcome to Hell. laughing

      Well, Americans, as a last resort, will be able to get married from America to Europe and Africa. If the water becomes really bad.

    Against this background, information comes from the US that the administration of President Trump is going to cancel requirements for methane emissions
    Now, of course, Greta Tunberg will come out and fiercely condemn the hegemon?))
