Many Americans wonder why the US sent more than half a million barrels of oil to Saudi Arabia

Information related to the export of American oil is being discussed in the United States. Attention was drawn to the supply of oil from the United States to Saudi Arabia. We are talking about sending to the kingdom a cargo of more than half a million barrels of crude oil produced by American companies. This is the first such delivery to the specified state after the lifting of the US oil export ban.


Many Americans wonder why they export oil from the US to Saudi Arabia, which has recently been actively supplying oil to the American market. Saudi Arabia is the third largest oil supplier to the United States after Canada and Mexico. By early summer, US imports of oil from the SA were about 1 million barrels per day.

550 thousand barrels is the largest supply of American oil to the Saudi kingdom in stories trade relations with the United States. Earlier, in 2002, the Americans sent oil to the Saudis, but in much smaller quantities: one batch of only a thousand barrels.

In this regard, it has been suggested that the United States is actually supplying oil through Saudi Arabia to some third party. But so far there is no data on who exactly the American oil is sent to.

    Is the "US" oil the same as the Saudi oil? It seems like they are constantly dancing with "grades". Although bills of the required denomination, even donkey urine is made with gasoline.

      Yes yes ,Yes yes

      Some are especially svidomo, and therefore (?) Are obviously very smart, by a simple "reverse" but for an additional fee they make "aggressive Russian gas" - "neutral European" laughing .

      With the rustle of green papers, CH4 immediately changes the formula ...

      Apparently, something similar is happening with the oil muddle, in the United States with the SA.

      Because of the "shale" oil, which is actually from heavy sands and not oil at all, but rather gas condensate, WTI felt immensely relieved and even changed the standard. The lower the density, the less energy is in a barrel, the cheaper it is. With the development of secondary refining processes, "light oil" has ceased to be a plus.
      In order for the US refineries to work at all (each plant is unique and tailored for a certain set of oil grades), WTI has to be unleashed with heavy Venezuelan oil ... which they buy for cash under the cries of Maduro-sinister ...

      What prevents the United States from delivering directly to Egypt? They do not seem to be in a state of any serious conflict and do not have insoluble contradictions that would prevent them from doing so. It can also be assumed that this oil is intended for Belarus, since recently Pompeo promised Grygorych, who was offended by the Russian oil industry, to ensure oil supplies from the United States. Again, why not directly, if the mattresses promised this openly? Or they are "not sure" (read convinced) that Luka will win (with the prefix "not") and decided to make a template for the "new" president, who will show himself to be a "great decision maker" and will immediately load the Belarusian refineries with work. What? The practice of recognizing any crooks, such as Guaido, as the legitimate leaders of countries, has mattresses and nothing prevents them from repeating the same feint following the elections in Belarus, which in turn pushes Grygorych to demonstrate his determination to ruin relations with Russia in order to convince them that that he is on the board.
      P / S-But the fact that this oil is not so simple and that there is some kind of muddle, is unambiguous. winked
      P / P / S- By the way, in Libya, it seems like oil shipment has been stopped in order to stop the graters between Haftar and the PNS, and, accordingly, the graters between the NATO countries standing on opposite sides of the conflict, in the solution of which the United States took on the role of mediator. They cannot supply oil directly to some of the opposing sides, but completely through the Saudis.

    delivery of oil from the United States to Saudi Arabia.
    Why really? Therefore, the assumption of the sale to a third country through the Saudis is quite natural. But what kind of country is it that even Americans are encrypted?

      Several assumptions smile to raise the morning mood
      1. Oil is intended for Kim Jong-un.
      2. The Americans decided to continue the price war with Russia in the oil market and give the Saudis a “tool” so that they can push something on the cheap, bringing down the market. You don't need much for this.
      3. The Saudis have agreed with the Americans on the return of part of the Saudi money that in trillions hang out overseas. And they were given gold ... that is, "black gold"

        Taiwan sits on Saudi oil. Direct deliveries from the US makes the PRC nervous. The PRC's patience is not prohibitive. The United States is already throwing away at the PRC's energy resources at the earliest opportunity. In June, China bought more liquefied gas from Russia than from the United States, not much more. USA. need another reason for China?

        Daddy carries it straight without encryption. The Americans make oil from three grades to make it look like our Urals. So when he starts modernizing factories for American clean oil, then we will have a problem, and so only show-off. And maybe now the amers and cheaper for him to buy. The contract is a mystery shrouded in darkness. hi

    why did the US send more than half a million barrels of oil to Saudi Arabia?

    The question is, of course, interesting. However, there are more interesting schemes, for example, the supply of snow to the Eskimos of Greenland or the supply of sand to the Sahara.
    "They are all stupid there!" (C)

    I even came across articles in quite serious Russian sources that bulldozing foodstuffs is a very profitable event.

              If you live one day, then it all looks funny and amusing. If you look at the long-term, you need certification centers that will quickly check these products, because if the state has allowed it into the country, then it is responsible to its citizens that people will not grunt from the use of these products. + We need warehouses for storage, and warehouses of different directions. Confiscated, it is different. Today shrimp have been delivered, and tomorrow hedgehogs. One needs to be kept in refrigerators, the other in nurseries.

              Well, imagine that to Israel. the beginning of the massive double bass import of tomatoes. They are successfully confiscated and dumped cheaply on the local market. How long will local tomato growers remain silent?

                This is why there is customs supervision, sanitary supervision, customs duties, etc. Moreover, in any country, under any government.
                If all this does not work well or the system is corrupt, heaps of problems arise. Again, in any country, with any government.
                Destruction of products for political reasons, the decision of your leadership. There is a place to be. I repeat, this is none of my business.
                Look carefully again, this is not me, they are convincing you that it is economically profitable. That's what makes me laugh. However, you don't have to share my opinion at all. hi

                  Is it profitable? It's just the police - less gemmor. The rest of this does not. Can anyone benefit from this? Probably you can. But I repeat, sometimes the game is not worth the candle. Corruption has nothing to do with it. You have to take a calculator and count. Try to look at the problem not from the side of the citizen, but from the side of the state. Many things are seen in different ways. Murder committed by a citizen is a crime. A murder committed by the state is to protect the interests of the country. Although both are minus of someone's life.

                  Any smuggling is not economically profitable for the state.
                  Food smugglers are carrying some kind of nasty stuff. Now, even in legal supplies, there is a lot of falsification, and in smuggling it is completely fake. It is very expensive to treat then the people poisoned by enterprising businessmen, which means it is economically unprofitable. And if there is a pestilence because of such smuggling - so, even more so.

                  Therefore, contraband counterfeits (and there are no other products there) must be unconditionally destroyed.

    It's simple. Diluent. Heavy oil is diluted with light oil, so that it still remains heavy by the standards. And sell accordingly at a heavy price. Sleight of hand and no cheating.
    Other options are injection into the reservoir to increase recovery, as a feedstock for the production of reagents for oil production.
    In any case, replacement of expensive oil with cheaper one.

    Oil is not all the same! There is a high content of paraffinic hydrocarbons, there are more overestimated oils! It depends on what the customer needs, the affairs of the chemical and oil refining industries.
