Yemeni Houthis launched rocket attacks on a large oil storage and gas processing facility in Saudi Arabia

60

Oil prices, which began to fall the day before, returned to growth today, exceeding $120 per barrel in futures for May. This situation manifests itself against the backdrop of news of a missile attack on the territory of Saudi Arabia by the Yemeni Houthis.


According to recent reports, Yemeni rebels, who are called the Houthis, attacked the fuel storage of the Saudi company Saudi Aramco. This is a company that is the largest oil exporter in Saudi Arabia and one of the largest in the world.

The Saudi Aramco fuel terminal was located near the Red Sea coast in the city of Jizan. It is through it that one of the main outgoing traffic of Saudi oil to the world market passes.

The second missile attack hit a gas processing facility in the city of Yanbu el-Bahr. In this city, several oil and gas pipelines converge at once. It is also the location of a large military base. And it is also located on the shores of the Red Sea, but unlike Jizan - at a distance of about 1000 kilometers from the Yemeni border. This accordingly actualizes the question of what kind of missiles could the Houthis use to strike at such a distance? Or the attack was carried out from the sea, but then on what ship could the Hussites cover an impressive distance by sea? The question is being discussed in the Saudi media whether they were really the Houthis.

In any case, both of these attacks affected the prices of both oil and gas on the world market. Moreover, there is still no data on the damage that was caused to the mentioned objects in Saudi Arabia. The footage shows a plume of black smoke over the Jizan facility, extending for miles.

          and by the way, I would advise the Saudis to take a closer look at the fact that this is the work of Israel or the United States. the first - sleeps and sees how to pit Iran against the Arabs. And the United States, well, really wants to bend the Saudis to actions against Russia. And the attack, a kind of stick, with which the obstinate are sent into the suffocating American embrace.

        They were already going to sell oil to China for yuan, and it was the United States that flew into the negotiations between Saudi Arabia and China on the sale of oil for yuan.
        And we have old scores for the Saudis, no matter how it all turns out on a permanent basis winked

    Yemeni rebels, known as the Houthis, have attacked a Saudi Aramco fuel storage facility some 1000 kilometers from the Yemeni border.
    The question is being discussed in the Saudi media whether it was really the Houthis ... ???

    Economist Gal Luft, in an interview with The Wall Street Journal, I quote: "The oil market and, more broadly, the entire global commodity market is insurance for the status of the dollar as the world's reserve currency ... If you take this brick out of the wall, the wall will begin to crumble." What is the wall? US economy.

    The petrodollar is one of the keys to the wealth of the United States. For almost half a century, Saudi Arabia traded oil exclusively in US dollars. And this is one of the main reasons that the United States has the highest standard of living among all large states, although the manufacturing sector has long collapsed. Petrodollars allow the US to pay for health care, pensions, the armed forces ... Yes, almost everything!

    Good question, can the US afford to break all this?

    Saudi Arabia wants to sell oil to China in yuan, The Wall Street Journal reports, citing sources.
    It is noted that this has been discussed for about six years, but the dialogue intensified in 2022, as Riyadh is dissatisfied with Washington's security commitments.
    The newspaper also clarified that China buys more than 25 percent of the oil exported by Saudi Arabia.

    Earlier it was reported that Russia and India are exploring the possibility of switching to settlements in rubles and rupees with the involvement of the Chinese yuan as the base currency.

    The Houthis did it, it’s definitely the Houthis, no options ...
