Named the countries that Saudi Arabia threatened with the "oil war"

In Saudi Arabia, it was outraged that some countries that had become parties to the so-called new OPEC + (OPEC ++) deal did not reach the agreed volumes of oil production cuts. According to the latest information, these include

African oil producing countries - Angola and Nigeria.

Riyadh believes that the companies of these African countries are playing a dishonest game in the oil market, which threatens not only the agreement, but the entire energy sector, which has recently stabilized. Stabilization is confirmed by oil prices. At the moment, a barrel of Brent crude is trading in the range of 40-42 US dollars.

The head of the Saudi Ministry of Energy, Prince Abdul-Aziz bin Salman, threatened Angola and Nigeria with a real "oil war." According to him, these countries should be held responsible for a dishonest game on the world market. If the international community does not take care of this, then, as the minister said, Saudi Arabia itself will take tough steps. Riyadh threatens to re-use the big discount on oil sales, which will again again jeopardize the OPEC + agreement.

According to the authorities of Saudi Arabia, "tough steps" will be directed exclusively against those countries that have not complied with obligations to reduce production volumes. However, such a statement seems to a certain degree cunning. After all, if Riyadh goes to lower prices, then this will affect not only Angola and Nigeria, but also the entire world oil industry.

For reference: the participants in the new OPEC + deal agreed to reduce production in May-June by 9,7 million barrels per day. From July 1 to the end, the reduction should be 7,7 million barrels.

        And these damned communists from scratch created the world's leading space industry. I’m generally silent about the huge nuclear missile arsenal of deterrence. What, nevertheless, were the nonhumans these communists. I have no words. It turns out that it is not in vain that the current patriots and foreign capitalists have abused him like that.

          The nuclear missile potential began to be created under Stalin, as did the industrial one.
          And without him, Nikita would not have succeeded.
          And they forgot how many industries and projects were closed and buried under him, as well as the "wonderful" desks. the elite that he pulled into the light and which then successfully destroyed the country.

        Where did you read about the communists ?!
        In the ranks of the Communist Party there were enough traitors and pests.
        Again, they distracted from constructive criticism.
        And it’s completely not funny, if you don’t understand history and economics, then you don’t need to write nonsense.

            Good.
            Look at the plans for oil production and familiarize yourself with the "party plans" for those years.
            Or at least go to Spitsin’s lecture.
            Unfortunately, many simple things are not so clear to many.
            Vodka, by the way, began to trade intensively with him.

            The United States has a dollar (and this, in principle, is enough) and much more, but Russia has nothing but resources and the military-industrial complex.

      The export of hydrocarbons to the west from the union was from 15 to 25% with humpback. A lot went to the CMEA countries, but for this we took a lot of things there. In the Russian Federation, exports are from 30 to 40% today. And who is denser sat still a question.

          Well, they have already voted. Now it remains to wait for the well-deserved "gifts" from the (already officially) nullified president. In 2018, after the elections, he did not keep waiting long. Most likely, it will be the same this time.

            In Saudi Arabia, they are used to driving a Toyota Land Cruiser 200 and have long forgotten what camels look like. And in Nigeria there hasn’t been grass for 30 years already. So it’s not clear who will run out of resources faster

        Plants are being built for oil, and not vice versa. To rebuild a plant from heavy oil to light very serious hemorrhoids. That’s why, by the way, Americans can’t refuse to buy heavy oil from Venezuela.

      They have three tools:

      2. Discounts on oil
      3. Complain to the white gentleman in Washington.

      Items 1 and 3 are now working poorly.
      Clause 2 (if I will continue), it actually means repeated self-circumcision, or rather cutting of one's own "household" into thin strollers, like a cervelat.
      we already observed this 2 months ago.

      In the best of times - he sent a couple of transport aircraft with "wild geese" and the thing is in the hat.

      No tool needed. Rather, there was one, this is the patronage of the United States. But in the states now there is no time for this, the hegemon is bent under the pressure of accumulated and unresolved internal and external problems. And without America, the Saudis will be left alone, with their hostile environment, where everyone as one, sharpening their teeth. They have no allies in the Middle East, only enemies. I just want to repeat the catch phrase of the famous character, "Well, son, your Poles helped you", in our case "Yankees".

    In June, American refineries will receive about nine million barrels of Russian oil - double the amount in March. Why the US, even in conditions of market overstocking, cannot do without supplies from Russia. After the failure of the March OPEC + meeting, Saudi Arabia decided to "punish Moscow for intractability" by flooding the markets with cheap oil. Riyadh switched to a "maximum production policy": the government instructed Saudi Aramco to increase exports by a third, from 9,7 to 12,3 million barrels per day. At the same time, the Saudis severely dumped in the European market, trying to undermine Russia's position: they offered raw materials by 10,25 , 260 dollars below the stock exchange quotations of Brent. The result, in addition to the collapse of oil prices, is the overflow of oil storage facilities around the world. March. The total imports of oil in the United States are XNUMX million barrels. Of them:

    Russia - 20 million barrels

    Mexico - 25 million barrels

    CA - 14 million barrels

    Canada - 135 million barrels
