“Complete disaster and hostile act”: This is how Washington assesses a possible OPEC + decision to reduce oil production

Today, a meeting of the cartel of the main oil-producing countries OPEC +, which includes 13 states, including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates and Russia, will take place. It is assumed that the meeting will decide on a sharp reduction in oil production - by 1-2 million barrels per day. Immediately, a number of Western media report that Russia and Saudi Arabia are insisting on this. Reductions will be made at the expense of the current production, and not at the expense of quotas, which some participants in the transaction cannot choose.


The administration of the President of the United States began to undertake frantic attempts to dissuade and even pressure allies in the Middle East to vote against the reduction. A significant decline in oil exports will inevitably lead to higher fuel prices at US gas stations. CNN is reporting, citing White House sources, that the Biden administration has described the prospect of production cuts as a "complete disaster" and warned that it could be seen as a "hostile act."

Last year, President Joe Biden began to rapidly lose popularity among Americans, including due to a sharp increase in fuel prices. The presidential administration made several attempts to negotiate with the main oil exporters to increase production and supply of raw materials, but almost without success. Then Biden launched a program to print out strategic oil reserves. As a result, fuel prices in the domestic market fell. But by October, the limit of oil interventions, set at 180 million barrels, was almost exhausted.

The OPEC+ decision to cut production, if adopted, would be a disaster for Joe Biden. With a little more than a month left before the midterm congressional elections, the Democratic Party's chances of holding a majority if fuel prices start to rise again in the country will drop sharply.

The planned decision of the G7 countries and the EU to introduce a ceiling on prices for Russian oil does not contribute to holding the cost of oil futures. Experts believe that in this case, Moscow can drastically reduce production and even completely stop exporting hydrocarbons to "unfriendly countries."

It became known that Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Alexander Novak will support the decision of OPEC + to reduce production due to the fact that "Russian oil is already being sold at a big discount." The Financial Times writes that Saudi Arabia, which has a very tense relationship with Washington, is seeking to raise oil prices to "anger the US and help Russia."

    Exit one. Gouge OPEC, carpet bombing and take everything for yourself. But it won't save. Recovery will take at least six months. There will be no more oil on the market, but it will be its own, cheap. And who is looking at the Papuans of Europe .... feel

      I think that the situation should not be simplified and it is simply reckless to think that the Anglo-Saxons are stupid.
      If you remember that the Saudis hold their assets of 800 billion S in the US and it is not known how much more in the EU, and also that the majority of their technical, military and household equipment comes from the US and the EU, the conclusion suggests itself - if the US does not "persuade" the Saudis and the Middle Eastern monarchies to increase production, then other levers of "persuasion" will be used, such as the notorious packages of sanctions against Russia.
      After all, they are not downs and use war only when the rest of the arguments have already come out.

        The Saudis have all the assets of about $ 300 billion and they have begun to show them for a long time. If I'm not mistaken, this was one of the first signals about the deterioration of relations with the United States. Here the Saudis withdrew capital, and what our people were waiting for, it’s hard for me to understand.

          Previously, in one investment in the United States, the Saudis held 700 billion dollars. , and 300 billion, this is apparently the state reserves. But after the accusation of the crown prince in the murder of Khashoggi and other insults, not only state reserves began to be withdrawn from the United States, but also all the investments of other princes (and there are so many of them that you can lose count) ... Yes, they were asked to increase production by a million barrels, and they decided to cut by 2 million. lol

        If the mattresses again decide to play with other people's money with arrests and freezes, then they will scare away all the remaining holders of the dollar and securities, and this is a trick for the United States. They are already looking askance and with distrust, after 300 billion were slandered from Russia. It is unlikely that they will touch the assets of the Saudis.

          Similar measures have already been introduced against Iran. That is, what happened to Russian money is not an isolated case, as one could say before. In addition, there were some troubles with German gold when the Germans under Merkel wanted to look at it, but in the end they could not. And they just forgot about it. And everything.
          If the Americans are not given money by the whole world, then the collapse of their economy will be like a shock wave around the world ... This, of course, no one wants. And who guarantees that the US will not try to use its armed forces to "restore world democracy"? It is the nuclear powers on the side of such threats. But, say, Germany is the same? It sounds fantastic, but if the Germans resist in case of anything, it is quite possible to go from Ramstein to Berlin to overthrow the "heirs of Hitler" (or whom they will announce there). And it’s probably not even necessary to talk about how careful all Caracas, Brasilia, Tripoli and Cape Towns need to be in this context.
          I am not an expert, but in my opinion, the current US will not be able to live without plundering the world. Therefore, if they feel that the world is successfully and for a long time stopping this, then they will also feel their imminent death. By analogy with Putin: "Is this world worthy to exist after it destroys America?"

    A price ceiling on the purchase of oil can be imposed against any country. There are many real reasons for imposing these sanctions against Saudi Arabia. War in Yemen, support for terrorism, killings in other countries, violation of human rights, etc.

      So what's the point? Well, they will limit the ceiling, and in response, the manufacturer will limit production, increase demand in the market and raise the price to the level that he needs. If oil is sold by tankers, then the consumer can get better, and if it is sold in glasses, then a fight will start over these glasses.

        I think it makes no sense, not even because the producer will simply stop selling oil at a lower price. This in itself is not an argument. If the West were the only (or at least the largest) buyer of oil in the world, then such sanctions could work. But we live, fortunately, in the 21st century, when there are other industrial centers besides the West, in need of the same huge supply of oil. So even to reduce production will not be necessary. Just send tankers to China, India, Korea and Taiwan (unless they decide to support this nonsense). The West consumes a lot of oil. Almost half of all oil in the world. But still a little less than it (counted on the basis of the Wikipedia table a little less than 45%). He is in a very advantageous position in this context, but still not in order to dictate something so confidently.

          So after all, we are not talking about selling or not selling at a reduced price, but about creating a shortage of supply. If it is not provided, then such a thing as "temptation" will come into play, when other buyers refuse to buy at current prices and begin to insist on the price set as a result of manipulations by the United States and Co. Now the "entertainers" of the price limit are at risk of grabbing oil at $150-200 and getting international "goats" from all other world consumers, who will have to take oil for the same $150-200. hi

            So maybe that's what they're trying to achieve? Now oil is going to go down at 200, the whole world is so, to put it mildly, freaking out that it will fall into such a hysteria, under which you can do whatever you want. The West, back in the XNUMXs, began the gradual destruction of the world order by withdrawing from the ABM treaty. Trump clearly outlined his goal: the elimination of the system of multilateral agreements, the transition to bilateral obligations. The INF Treaty was covered up as one of the important treaties in this regard (I consider it harmful both for Russia and for the States, but nonetheless). This year, in general, the dressing of the uttermost has begun. The work of the UN Security Council is actually blocked, because in the current situation, any resolution is vetoed either by Russia, or the same States, or one of them sang along. It is not clear what will happen with contracts for gas supplies to Europe after the explosions of the Nord Stream.
            In general, global connections are being destroyed by our globalist for some reason. To provoke a rise in the price of oil fits perfectly into this chain. Europe has already received its kick and continues to receive it. If oil rises to 200, then India, China and Japan will get a kick. As if they are trying to kick Russia in Ukraine.
            It is indicative that against the backdrop of such a dressing down, the States zealously and promptly extended START-3 last year.

But now, when electronic information is easily distributed in the world, it has clearly become clear, xy from xy.
      2. for the initial development of 70, the Arabs needed external finance to attract specialists, and so on. In addition to oil, they had nothing in return. So they were milked, candy wrappers were changed for oil.
      3. Now the economy has a good source of income from tourism and other areas. And now the Arabs can already bargain and it is profitable for them to sell more for less.

        With such a "gift" the prince became a dove of peace. His executioner took out an ax and sharpens it with pleasure. However, their tradition is to chop off the heads of unfaithful Muslims. The laws of the Saudis must be respected.

            Maybe they already gave him an ax? Although he manages well with a saber, he never thought that he doesn’t raise a saber so high. But they have all this after the trial, and not according to the mood of the monarch.

    the prospect of production cuts has been described as a "total disaster" and warned that it could be seen as "hostile act".
    Even so - nothing more, nothing less than a "hostile act"? And to fight with Russia while Ukrainian hands is not a hostile act? But blowing up gas pipelines is not a hostile act? They got used to living by the principle - I turn what I want, and the rest are obliged to adapt. If everything happens as planned at OPEC +, then we can only rejoice at this. By the way, send a big hello to Europe about setting a fixed price for oil.

    .this can be perceived as a "hostile act"

    When more than thirty years ago, the same OPEC, only with the states, increased oil production in order to reduce the price and finish off the Soviet Union, it was a fight against evil, and today it is an act of aggression. I really hope that the production will be reduced.

    the government can set a ceiling, for example, on bread. but then it must subsidize agriculture for the difference between the price and the ceiling. But what about export oil?

      And what is incomprehensible?

      Brand Brent now costs around $90, Russian Urals, respectively, around $60. The European Union issues a piece of paper that the price of Russian oil should not exceed $50. Accordingly, either sell at that price as much as you can, or don't sell at all.
      Quote: Sadok
      I say: "OK, then I'll sell Petya for 120, he'll take it."

      Chairman Petya is aware that they won’t take more than 50 from you anywhere else, so they won’t give you more than 51. Plus, comrade Petya, you need to carry this oil through the railway instead of the pipeline, this in itself costs 30 bucks.

        well .. "on thin". there is still a problem that if the refinery is imprisoned for Urals, then it will not be able to eat Brent. and vice versa.

          Well, he walks. If he has a plant for Saudi oil, then he doesn’t need to change to the Urals for free.

          On the contrary, it’s really unlikely, but Brent is initially cleaner than the Urals, it’s easier to adapt to it.

      As far as I understand, since the ban applies only to oil supplied by tankers, there will be a ban on shipping companies to transport such oil, and we have few tankers of our own, a ban on marine insurance, and this, if I'm not mistaken, is handled by the English insurance company LLOYD. Well, a ban on tankers entering ports.
      True, I think there is always an opportunity to circumvent these prohibitions.
      Well, for example, allegedly mixing Russian oil with Azerbaijani oil on the territory of Kazakhstan, for example, and it will already be supposedly Kazakh oil. And she is not subject to restrictions. There are probably other ways to get around. In general, in my opinion, this idea is initially a failure.

    As I understand it, for the US leadership, hostile acts are everything that does not benefit them. In this regard, I remembered an old anecdote. The US government and president were surprised to find that there was some kind of Arab country above their oil field. I wonder - in connection with this "hostile act" will the US take action to bring democracy to Saudi Arabia?

    And there was no need to push through the stupid initiative to set a price ceiling for Russian oil.
    Quite logically, other members, OPEC, suggested that such a sanction could be imposed on them, since the American bandit has no brakes and it is not known what else they will invent.
    So they answered.
    Here you have the market and free competition, with which Yegor Golikov (Gaidar) and other Chubais and Kudrins fooled us.

      Hi!! They removed it from the language. Now each country is closely watching what will happen next. It's not just about OPEC, other non-member countries are closely watching developments. OPEC is the big traders, but there are others. If they succeed, they won't be offended either. Let's wait and see how buyers react.
