The volume of Russian oil supplied to the USA this year has become a record

63

Among the exporters of oil products to the United States, Russia came in second, overtaking Mexico. The volume of Russian oil supplied to the United States this year and products made from it have become a record over the past 12 years.


This is evidenced by statistics from the Energy Information Administration of the US Department of Energy (EIA).

The record was March 2021. This month, the growth in the volume of supplies of oil and oil products from Russia to the United States amounted to 80 percent, reaching 23 million barrels. The last time such a quantity of this raw material was supplied by our country to America was in July 2009.

Now Russia ranks second among the exporters of oil and oil products to the United States after Canada, which supplied almost 140 million barrels in March, that is, about six times more than the Russian Federation. From Mexico, which dropped from second to third, 17,6 million barrels came to the United States in March. It is followed by Saudi Arabia with its 11 million.

Overall, the United States increased its imports of crude oil and petroleum products by 20 percent.

Among the suppliers of this raw material to the United States in March 2021, Iran unexpectedly turned out to be, which, as you know, has long been under American sanctions. As it turned out, we are talking about an Iranian oil cargo arrested by the US military in the Gulf of Oman, the volume of which amounted to two million barrels.

    Overall, the United States boosted its imports of crude oil and petroleum products by 20 percent

    Why do they need so much oil, in my opinion, they create a reserve. A lot of fuel is always needed for the conduct of hostilities.

          This is why they did not do that, because there was a long-term ban on oil exports. It was then that the reserve was created. And now they thought that it is profitable to import oil only on paper, but in fact to resell it immediately to partners at a price that inspires American business

        Do you not admit the idea that the United States is processing raw materials?
        You do not admit the idea that the United States does not trade in raw materials, but in goods of deep processing of raw materials with a colossal added value.

        The purchase of oil by the United States from Russia does not mean delivery of oil to the United States.
        The United States owns a colossal number of businesses around the world.

        Geography suggests that buying in Russia is simply cheaper.


        It is the Russian oligarchs who love to play according to the scheme proposed by you.
        He took the wealth of the Russians and pushed them abroad without bothering with processing.

          Nope, we do not admit it, last year Belarus bought democratic oil from the United States, Ukraine only voices about how the first tanker came to Odessa, about Pennsylvanian coal worth 1 billion to remember in general muveton. So don't tell us about the United States as a great factory for processing raw materials, they are either ordinary hucksters or the same gas station that is conquering markets in all possible ways, including bombing, the sanctions for the Nord Stream are an example of this.

          Well, there really are no oligarchs in Russia anymore. If you think that they are, then you simply do not understand the meaning of this word. request
          And the purchase of oil from Russia is simply conditioned. Refineries on the south and east coasts of the United States have been powered by Venezuelan heavy oil for decades. After the break with Venezuela and the blocking of Venezuelan money in the US and Great Britain, Venezuelan oil no longer goes there. In fact, you can replace it only with Iranian or ours. The US relations with Iran are now even worse than with us. So the mattresses have to buy oil for their refineries from us. And after Biden banned the continuation of the construction of an oil pipeline from Canada, which also supplied heavy oil, but a little differently, the US demand for our oil only increased. And in fact it is not clear whether we are selling them our oil or reselling Venezuelan oil as ours. hi

      Just stupid pid.os imposed sanctions on Venezuela from where the bulk of the heavy oil came from, then they boiled it with lighter oil, bringing it to a condition so that the local refineries could function. And then the sanctions! And it turned out that it was Russian oil that became the most suitable for American refineries. So sanctions are sanctions, and business is business! But at the same time, the Democrats blame Trump for everything, they say, to what this fool Pzh brought the country - we buy oil from the aggressor! laughing

        There is such a mess with Venezuelan oil. In Belarus, oil refineries are sharpened for our oil. So the Americans pumped oil from their reserves so that it would be suitable for an oil refinery in Belarus, and for themselves would be able to.

            Most likely, our oil is more suitable for them, unlike the Venezuelan oil it is not necessary to oil it. Venezuelan oil will be oiled before loading it into a tanker with Saudi oil.

      Everything is a little simpler. American refineries in the south, in the Gulf of Mexico, need heavy oil, which is mixed with light oil from Texas fields. This oil has always been supplied by Venezuela, Now Venezuela is under sanctions, Iran has a similar quality oil, but it is also under sanctions. There is such oil in Russia, it is its main brand Urals. So we are forced to buy it.

      Belarus is the main exporter of oil products to Ukraine. In connection with the current "export ban", an intermediary will simply be added to the chain, but nothing will change: the blood of war from Russian oil, which has become cheaper for brotherly Belarus, will regularly flow to the fascists. You can read here https://ukraina.ru/exclusive/20210323/1030906639.html
      In second place is our Motherland. There is a legislative ban on the supply of oil products to Ukraine, and in December last year, only bitumen was removed from it. Therefore, the Azerbaijani company buys oil products in the Russian Federation and sends its own to the horses.

    It's simple, the deficit and the rise in prices. The average cost of gasoline in the United States exceeded $ 3 per gallon (approximately 3,8 liters) - the highest price in almost seven years. The rise in prices is fueling increased demand: Americans began to buy for future use due to fears of a shortage of fuel after the stop of the Colonial Pipeline. We have not seen such a panic since the Iranian crisis of the late 1970s (Forbes 12.05.2021/XNUMX/XNUMX). So the exporters rushed to earn more green candy wrappers, and the Americans do not mind drawing more. winked

    And I still hope that we will soon flood America with electronics, cars and other high-tech goods. No, again the resources are raw.

    Paraphrasing the well-known monologue of Roman Kartsev, about cancers (by M. Zhvanetsky), we can say - "Well, yesterday the volumes were small, - there were no sanctions, but today they are large, - we are under sanctions!"

    Why do they need so much oil

    What do you mean why? And to resell to the countries of "great democracies" through five intermediary firms? ..


    And our sellers are not smart enough to sell directly, and keep the margin for themselves. "Great managers" would better sell for a pittance, but quickly, and there is no need to look for clients. And wealth (oil, etc.) is not their own "national"
    How good it is to live in a country that produces "green paper", and for it all the riches the pranets will bring and exchange. request

    "Among the suppliers of this raw material to the United States in March 2021, Iran, which, as you know, has long been under American sanctions, unexpectedly appeared. As it turned out, we are talking about an Iranian oil cargo arrested by the US military in the Gulf of Oman, the volume of which amounted to two million barrels. . "

    Simply put, they stole it!
