Oil companies of the United States and the EU bypass the sanctions adopted against the Russian Federation

100
Major Western oil companies "painlessly bypass" the sanctions imposed on the Russian Federation and continue to work on most transactions with Russia, reports RIA News with reference to the Washington Times.



According to the newspaper, international companies such as the American ExxonMobil Corporation and the British BP are in dire need of Russian fossil fuels. “In the hope of developing some of the largest and most promising oil and gas fields in Siberia and the Arctic, these companies have invested millions in Russia”- writes the Washington Times.

The newspaper notes that “until now, joint sanctions by the US and the EU had no effect on the processes taking place in the energy sector of the Russian Federation”, which, by the way, bring Europe no less benefit than Russia itself.

According to the newspaper, the sanctions were designed in such a way as not to cause significant harm to the energy sector, in this regard, "oil companies continue to openly cooperate with companies such as Rosneft".

From the very beginning, Western oil firms "defied US and EU attempts to isolate Vladimir Putin." For example, the general director of BP, Bob Dudley, after announcing a joint project with the company Rosneft, stated:
“It is our responsibility to be together with our partners in difficult times. Russia is the largest producer of oil and gas in the world, and the world will need 40 percent more energy in the period from the present to the 2035 year. That is why, as you can see, many, many, many international companies work with Russia. BP is one of them. ”


Last week, representatives of BP made another statement, pointing out that “any disruption of relations with Rosneft will have a negative impact on their business and strategic tasks in the Russian Federation, on the level of income, production and reserves, investment and reputation.”

The publication writes that BP has the closest ties with the Russian Federation from all Western companies. In addition, yesterday, President Putin called the American "ExxonMobil" involved in the development of fields in the Arctic Ocean "a long-standing and reliable partner".

The newspaper notes that representatives of ExxonMobil, which has extensive investments in the Russian Federation, reassured investors a few days ago, explaining to them that nothing had changed in their plans. And they called the joint project on gas production on Sakhalin one of the “main achievements” of their company.

            At that time, countless schools of salmon and trout from the cold ecologically clean waters of the fjords of the Kingdom of Norway began their unprecedented long journey, later listed in the Guinness Book of Records, to the harsh shores of the Kola Peninsula! Moreover, what is surprising - along with the cages, feed and maintenance staff ...

            Lord, why so difficult! They will be loaded directly into the sea on our ships and brought to us as ours, but much cheaper: prices will drop. With herring and cod it is even easier: both ours and Norwegians are caught in the same place. Send the floating base-ref there - and take the fish from the norgs, and they will record them as your own. Taxes will be put directly into the boxes with our labels.

            All right. In Murmansk, the new customs laws of the Russian Federation the Russian fish fleet has been squeezed out to Norway since 1991. Our customs officers took a duty from our fishermen for fish caught in Our seas according to Our quotas. Plus duty on the import of fuel and water which refuel in Russia. Do not care, just import means pay. The fishing fleet was brought so that he would hand over fish in the port of Kirkenes, adjacent to the Murmansk port. Ibid. carried out repairs. Ibid. crew change. Ibid. fish processing (by the way, Russian women also worked for foreign pennies by the standards of local natives). Same way rode Murmansk prostitutes. Same way they brought vodka. From there, the fish were driven by refrigerators. Norway's fishing industry only increased by 1998 times by 4. Now I can not even imagine what size ....

          Simply, now the United States, the EU and all other initiators of sanctions bypassing the UN are unreliable economic partners, when making any transactions with them, such transactions will be considered high-risk with all the consequences.

          There is a lecture at the university. The professor talks about the Spartans. Well, as for the fact that, they say, the troops were on campaigns for years and this united the soldiers so much that, as a rule, they fell in love with each other. And this was encouraged, for the Spartan, who had lost a friend and lover in one person, was merciless to the enemy and avenged the murdered. And then one point, a tiny little student giggles:
          - So the Spartans were fagots?
          The professor sighed heavily, took off his glasses, looked at the upstart and said:
          -Fagots, speak? God forbid, dear young man, to meet at least one such fagot face to face. No, my young friend, these were not fagots! These were real BATTLE pi..a..sy !!

          The photograph inspired memories of those events. And I recalled this:
          Firstly, in order to prevent the dependence of Europe on the USSR, it was then that the idea was born in American minds to transport gas from America to Europe. True, Europe itself then laughed at this project (which they don’t give now and twist its hands).
          Secondly: Pipes were then purchased from Germany, but problems arose with gas pumping units. The United States did manage to block their sale. That's when they had to create the GTN-25. The epic, I tell you, was still one. On Leningrad radio, reports from the factory floors went like front-line ones, but they were done on time.
          Overcome those sanctions, and we are not afraid of these!
          Well, so that at least a little on the topic: that’s what presidents, etc., etc., can pay well for, which is a threat to the income of oil giants. So it was, is, and will be!

      There is such an opinion:
      US Republican politician, three-time Senator Ron Paul said that US sanctions against Russia will accelerate the collapse of the dollar as a reserve currency.
      “The decision of the US government to impose new sanctions against Russia is a grave mistake that will only lead to further escalation of the already tense situation and ultimately harm the United States themselves,” Paul writes in an article published on his official website.
      According to him, the pressure that the United States exerts on European banks to force them to join the anti-Russian sanctions will hit their financial indicators and, taking into account the numerous investigations conducted against EU banks in the United States, will lead to the fact that the financial sector of Europe will get tired of the role The "free cop" imposed on him in Washington.
      European banks are already cutting back on operations with US citizens and legal entities because of the FATCA law, which obliges them to disclose information about their customers to the US tax authorities, Paul recalls. “It is worth waiting for EU banks to reduce their business in the US and their operations with the dollar, ultimately leaving the US isolated. So, trying to isolate Russia, the USA actually isolate themselves, ”the politician writes.
      Another effect of the sanctions will be the strengthening of Russia's ties with the BRICS countries. “Already, Russia and China are signing mutual trade agreements in national currencies instead of the dollar. If this trend spreads, it could shake the dollar’s ​​position in world trade, ”the politician warns.
      “The world is tired of having to subsidize the gigantic debts of the US government, the world is tired of producing and exporting trillions of dollars of goods to the United States, receiving in exchange a currency that is depreciating every day,” Paul writes.
      In his opinion, the American administration must abandon the policy of sanctions and a “carrot without gingerbread”, which applies to everyone who does something objectionable to Washington, as this approach will lead to the fact that “more and more countries will abandon the dollar, accelerating its fall into oblivion.

      This is how the oilmen in the United States possess real resources and influence the president's policy. There was one, however, like an independent, everyone remembers how he finished. So all these sanctions - and their handiwork. They will survive any of our otvetku, the main thing for them is to keep our (and not only) oil / gas under control. For energy is the blood in the veins of industry in any country and the whole world. With the development of industry, the main hot spots in the world are oil-bearing. And everywhere they smile and say: only business. Ukraine is also not without them 100%! Well, and they really are not afraid of their sanctions - they did not impose them against themselves. I don't understand some here who speak of them with affection.

And I don’t even know: to be glad for me for BP and EM or to be upset for my Motherland. Everyone is trying to pump something out of Russia, but not invest anything in it for normal production. There are exceptions, I do not argue, but a bad trend is visible.
      As for the oil giants, these companies have long been transnational and they did not care about the governments of separate countries. If they step on the corn, it is very easy to re-register your company in a more compliant country, depriving the mentally ill colossal tax profits.

      Well, yes, British Petroleum and Exxon Mobile consider Russia and Russians to be chukhans. Like grandfathers in the army, you’re a talker, but if you receive a package, you can be a friend, not for long! And the shniki are glad that the grandfather calls him a friend, even for the parcel! Well, of course, without them, we can’t master the development of oil and gas in any way; we’re no one’s calling us. Let the enemies for our oil still build aircraft carriers, missiles, planes, taught us a little fools!

      Large offices do not care about Obama and his sanctions, he will argue - they will be thrown off and thrown out of the White House, and they will put a more accommodating puppet president. So isolating Russia on all fronts is impossible.

      If this trend spreads, it could shake the dollar’s ​​position in world trade


      It is already spreading. After Putin, Merkel briefly traveled to China, which creates an alternative IMF, so far only with the BRICS countries.

      Spy revelations in Germany were also timed to this, although the United States asked not to wash dirty linen in public in exchange for their non-authorization of one of the German banks. Contrary to requests, the scandal was promoted to the fullest. After that, the FRG foreign policy department "recommended" all countries to disclose their foreign intelligence representatives located on their territory.

      45% of all foreign exchange reserves held in the United States, the Americans brazenly refused to return to Germany. They also suggested forgetting about them.

      And in conclusion - Yatsenyuk's "genius" proposal to ban the transit of our gas to Europe, it is clear that with the filing of the same USA, and with the aim of ousting Gazprom from the European market.

      With such allies, Merkel is left to glance to the East and carefully prepare the ground, if that.

      Politics is the highest form of consolidation of the interests of the economy, so when politics begins to oppose economic relations, and even more so the prospect of making a profit, then this is just a paradox.
