Refusal of oil and gas: Norway was named the first in line

61

Climate Policy magazine has published a noteworthy study. It concludes that it is time for Norway to stop oil and gas production, since this country has all the infrastructure to carry out such a task.


Why do you want to start with Norway


The author of the study, Greg Mattitt, concludes that by 2050 the bulk of oil, gas and coal production should be stopped. Instead of these energy sources, it is proposed to use renewable sources, which will limit the increase in temperature on the planet to one and a half degrees. Norway is called the most prepared country for the abolition of oil and gas production. It is she who will “set the pace”, and then the turn of Great Britain, Canada and the USA will follow.

Norway has a wide and diverse economy that can attract oil workers to other sectors. Norway also has the world's largest pension fund,

- says Mattitt.

At the same time, Mattitt believes that Norway, as well as Great Britain, Canada and the United States, have all the resource opportunities to stop oil and gas production, since they do not depend on the extractive industry as much as third world countries depend on it.

For example, in Norway only 10% of the state budget is generated from oil revenues, while in Nigeria “oil money” makes up 40% of the budget, in Angola - 50% of the budget, in Iraq - 85% of the budget. It is clear that in the Russian Federation the share of the fuel and energy complex in the country's revenue generation is very high (28,5% in the oil sector).

Mattitt believes that if you start by reducing oil production in Asian and African countries, then their already not rich residents will become even poorer. A completely different picture in Norway, which can take care of its citizens.

Gulf monarchies have to tighten their belts


However, the researcher ignores another interesting nuance: the exploitation of natural resources in third world countries is very often carried out by corporations belonging to the same Western businessmen, or in the interests of the latter. And far from always, oil revenues go to national budgets for the benefit of the population: in the same Angola or Nigeria, millions of people live in terrifying poverty, but this is of little concern to local governments.

Mohamed Adov, head of the Power Shift Africa center in Nairobi (Kenya), also does not see the future for fossil fuel extraction. Already, in his opinion, there are countries that can move towards cleaner and more sustainable energy. The coronavirus pandemic provides excellent opportunities for changing the current situation in the global energy sector: national governments can initiate changes based on the experience of the events of recent months. Obviously, this refers to a reduction in transport links between countries and a general decrease in oil demand.


But there is another interesting nuance. For example, in the rich oil monarchies of the Persian Gulf, up to 70% of the budget is also formed through the exploitation of oil and gas fields. Oil and gas are the key to the economic miracle of Kuwait, Qatar, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain. The cessation of oil and gas production would become a national catastrophe for these states, since with all the large-scale investments in other sectors of the economy, so far they have not managed to reduce the dependence of their budgets on income from fuel production.

Meanwhile, the rejection of oil and gas production can really completely change the face of the global economy. Many countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and even our country, in their income are very dependent on the exploitation of deposits and the export of oil, gas, coal. The “energy revolution” will hit their interests very hard, especially if it is conducted “from above”, under pressure from Western Europe and the USA.

On the other hand, no one is obliged to agree with the conclusions of European and American analysts and follow their recommendations. A gradual transition to renewable energy sources is needed, but it should not be carried out on a forced basis, under the supervision of whom the powers of the “environmental gendarmes” of the USA or the European Union have taken over.

        It seems that the Anglo-Saxons are again practicing a multi-step approach to other countries, pushing them to reckless actions. It turns out that Holland will soon end up extracting these resources from the shores of Europe, England declares the same resources to be impoverished in its coastal waters, Russia is being blocked westward in all areas and only Norway has so far been free to supply resources to the EU, brazenly taking a piece of the pie from the poor USA. The mess.
        If the United States has set itself the goal of spilling the north of the EU by 100% with its gas and oil, it will crush everyone, regardless of the loyalty or "love" of these countries to them.

          Interesting things come out with the Polish dream of raising the national sovereignty of Poland from Russian gas to Russia! Namely.

          After all, Poland was going to build the Norway-Poland gas pipeline through Denmark to protect its national sovereignty from Russia! And what happens?

            Nothing will be wasted and everything will be in chocolate if you manage to break Norway.
            The procedure will be as follows after Norway adopts the Anglo-Saxon plan:
            - Norway is building a terminal for receiving American gas on the shores of the North or Norwegian Seas,
            - through the network of internal gas pipelines in Norway, "free and democratic" US gas flows through the offshore pipeline from Norway to Poland,
            - through a network of former Russian (Soviet) gas pipelines on the territory of Poland, the molecules of the best gas in the world go to the Baltic States and Belarus, Ukraine, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria, with access to Greece and Turkey.

          I do not know how in New Zealand. I wrote about Kamchatka. Since Soviet times, the local thermal power station has been operating on imported fuel oil. And throughout the 90s, while Biryukov was the governor, fuel oil was not regularly delivered on time and regular outages began. More precisely, the inclusion. It stopped only Mashkovtsev. In the late 90s, they launched the Mutnovsky geothermal. But it didn’t get any better. I talked with an employee. Surprisingly, with free heat generation came out more expensive. It's all about an aggressive pair that eats pipes and equipment. And they are more expensive than regular heat, as they are made of special alloys.
          It all ended up stretching the gas pipeline to the TPP. But I already left when they did.

        They have the State Pension Fund of Norway, which at the beginning of 2020 contained ~ $ 1,1 trillion, working for ALL citizens of the country (almost $ 200 thousand for each !!!), and not for a narrow circle of homies. This is more than the inventory value of ALL Russian natural resources, together with forest dwellers, according to the "inventory" subject to final privatization, "for their own." So, they will not be lost.

            So what? Do you need a fund to wither over it, like our "permanent"? They periodically, in times of crisis, naturally drop in there. For this, there is a special legal procedure involving all branches of government. At the same time, they cannot spend more than the maximum established amount for a certain period, let alone steal. All additional expenses only at the will of all citizens of the country are possible in exceptional cases. And with all this, the fund employs 500 employees in comparison with the 100 thousand staff of the FIU. The report on financial and economic results is freely available. Think about it.

                I’ll fix it a bit. Not that they are systematically taken.

                The fund cannot spend more than 3% of accumulated reserves per year. This fall (approx. 2019) Norway for the first time since 2017 years, the fund was printed out due to falling oil prices below budgeted levels. (C) Bloomberg

                In principle, they did not think about the diversification of revenues yesterday.

                Despite the fact that the fund uses high-risk investment instruments, it acts as carefully as possible. Sometimes the decisions of the Norwegian authorities are not too obvious. For example, in November 2017, the fund announced the sale of assets related to oil and gas. It would seem, why deprive yourself of such an attractive source of income? However, the fund decided to abandon the relevant investments, citing the fact that the Norwegian economy is so dependent on oil. If the hydrocarbon-based economy collapses, then Norway, the largest producer of this raw material in Western Europe, will suffer double damage as an exporter of oil and gas and as an investor.

                Thanks for the discussion. hi

And US Protestantism is primarily Protestantism of the outskirts of England + Norwegian Protestantism, and not centralized Protestantism of Germany. Hard workers? Well, this is inherent in religion. All Protestant countries with the highest rates of productivity and hours of work per year. The United States, for example, periodically competes with Japan on business hours.

    "For example, in Norway only 10% of the state budget is formed from oil revenues" - these are very sly numbers. Depending on the source, the estimate may vary significantly. There are also estimates: "Norway is in the global top 7 exporters of crude oil. The oil and gas sector constitutes around 18% of Norwegian GDP and 62% of Norwegian exports" (European Commission website for help). Those. 2/3 of exports are oil and gas, this cash flow cannot be replaced by anything at the moment. Although, these are claims against the original author, not the translator.

    What kind of thing is it, Norway has less oil reserves than Azerbaijan (at the current rate of production, they will last 10 years) and less gas than Uzbekistan. They produce offshore, which is more expensive in cost, less return and few resources (relative to the pace of development) - it’s logical to look for other options, especially since there is no budget dependence on resources (they added up oil and gas profits to the fund and invested in blue chips).

    .... Do the Norwegians know about this? And they agree it's time?

    It is clear that in the Russian Federation the share of the fuel and energy complex in the country's revenue generation is very high (28,5% in the oil sector).

    Hmm ... And if you add gas, how much will it be? ..

        Yes, I am not interested in norgi at all. I do not live there.
        Here in 2016 I found

        In 2016, the Russian Federation retained its first place in the world in gas exports, the second in oil exports, and the third in coal exports.

        The fuel and energy complex remains an important source of replenishment of the budget. At the end of 2016, the share of the fuel and energy sector in the country's GDP amounted to 22,6 percent, oil and gas revenues in the federal budget 36 percent. The share of fuel and energy resources in the export of the Russian Federation of basic goods is 58,1 percent.

        The share of employees in the fuel and energy sector of the total number of employees amounted to 3,6 percent.

        Source: data from the Ministry of Energy of Russia, Ministry of Economic Development of Russia, Ministry of Finance of Russia, FCS of Russia.

    the "greens" are not asleep .... while maintaining the current economic policy, Russia is unlikely to agree to this ...

    They have the Norwegian State Pension Fund, at the beginning of 2020 which contained ~ $ 1,1 trillion working for ALL citizens of the country (almost $ 200 thousand each !!!)

    And what is this talking about? What can all Norwegians be handed out two hundred thousand at a time and all of them will immediately become three times happier? This is not real. And if you mention ALL citizens, then be so kind as to write about their number, otherwise you are submitting information not on statistical terms.

    green energy to them (the West) in the ass, but with all these statements they don’t get a damn, just for a start, controlled thermonuclear energy is the guarantee of life (civilized) on the third pebble from the sun

    And the fact that the Norwegians sold to many large companies, the same Chevron, offshore oil production rights, how is it? Forfeits there will be in the billions.

    The author took and interpreted the article, in the hope that no one would read it.
    The main message in the article is that highly developed economies, and such is Norway, may be the first to stop the use and production of hydrocarbons, without social upheaval!
    The second message is that mining countries may require financial support, but on the condition that they diversify their production and economy!
    So Mr. Polonsky, some still read. Although you even hesitate to give a link :)

    Where does this schizoid thought come from, that someone will have something? While they are buying oil, they will produce it.

    How critical is foreign policy and hydrocarbon production! That’s why the wars will not stop, only the factors of the lack of drinking water, food, etc. will be added.

    Norway has a wide and diverse economy that can attract oil workers to other sectors. Norway also has the world's largest pension fund,
    It’s tin - people from other areas of the economy are invited to the world's largest pension fund to produce pensioners and make this fund even bigger !!!
    And far from always, oil revenues go to national budgets for the benefit of the population: in the same Angola or Nigeria, millions of people live in appalling poverty, but this is of little concern to local governments.
    Nuuuu Europe woke up after 300 years of robbing the rest of the world !!! If 100 years ago the same inhabitants of Angola and Nigeria were simply rudely robbed - they took away natural resources with the help of Colt and Winchester, now they are simply cleverly deceived - progress has been made over the past 100 years !!!

    Poor Norwegians. Everyone has already decided for them.
