Military Review

Analytical program of Mikhail Leontiev "However", December 23 2015

53



Against the background of a fall in oil prices, the message that Congress allowed the export of American oil made an impression of a control shot. Right now, flows of American oil will flow to the market, and everything will finally collapse. Do not pour and will not collapse.

The oil export ban imposed by the United States in response to the Arab oil embargo lasted more than 40 years. In order to achieve a majority in Congress, the oil lobby had to pledge more than a trillion dollars in subsidies for the development of alternative wind and solar energy.
That is literally thrown to the wind. What you will not do for the sake of the native American oil industry, which has already been lowered below the baseboard. Contrary to popular belief, America is not interested in low energy prices. She is interested in prices significantly lower than the main competitors.

The shale revolution in the United States provided fantastic growth in oil production, abruptly slowed down as a result of falling prices and turning into a decline in the 2016 year.

The Wall Street Journal, still at a price of about 50 dollars per barrel, wrote that shale companies had reached a limit in reducing their costs. When the number of drilling rigs in the industry fell over the year to 2 / 3. "24 largest shale companies reported losses totaling more than 62 billion dollars. At the moment we are talking about the best areas, the best equipment, the best personnel. All the cost reductions from now on will no longer be fat loss, but cutting the meat."

There is an opinion that the prices are lowered by the Saudis, increasing production to remove expensive oil from the market, primarily American slate.

This is a bold idea, considering how obsessed America is with its energy security. And now, when a couple of steps remained until the United States reached full energy independence, some Saudis decided to shoot the American shale revolution ?! Given the fact that Saudi Arabia itself exists only with the permission and under the guarantees of the United States. You must agree that the version looks much more convincing that the Saudis, and, by the way, not the first time, are fulfilling a responsible task - to remove from the market not even the Russian oil industry, but Russia itself.

That is, if we imagine that the current American administration is obsessed with anti-Putin revenge even more than its own energy security. And then the permission to export oil is additional evidence of that.

Now America produces 9,2 million barrels per day, consumes, processing at its plants 16,7. That is, America remains - and now, after the killing of the shale revolution, it will remain for a long time - the largest importer of oil. The peculiarity is that American factories are adapted for heavy imported oil - Venezuelan, Mexican ..., and all the additional shale production is light oil - WTI, which overwhelmed American stores and put pressure on quotes. This very oil will now be exported.

That is, because of American exports, there will no longer be any oil on the market; simply, American imports will grow accordingly. In order for US exports to threaten oil prices, the prices of this oil must be high enough to justify its production.

It seems to us that the Saudis shot the wrong one. Who they ordered. Or the customer did not see in the heat of the geopolitical struggle.

        The scary thing is not who learns from whom, but the fact that our younger generation is also trying to learn from the West.
        Education is already sliding thanks to the woes of the reformers. Mid-level managers except for Western schemes do not know how to work at all.
        We are still taking a sip with this stupid copying of Western schemes.

      "go horse"
      the point is to free storage facilities, simultaneously destroying mining small things, and then fill these storage facilities, but from affiliated companies. Save the industry, free the market from competitors, and earn money. Oil then they throw to the world market. At the same time, the budgets of world competitors will dry out. This is a nerve-wracking game, and it’s invariant, because if the Americans get carried away, empty the storages significantly, the price will collapse, and oil will flow in the opposite direction. So in America itself, not even large grains will survive, which, again, for survivors means seizing the domestic market.

        There is no question of any "wrong shot". A multi-vector combination is carried out:
        - An indicative "flogging" of oil-producing countries with signs of independence and a demonstration of the manageability of oil-producing "allies."
        - Financial weakening of Russia;
        - Rotation of oil reserves in storage;
        - Winning time, because slipped information about qualitative changes in shale mining technologies.
        Which of these is more important, "this is not known to us," but together - the solution to many problems. hi

      Leontiev is a jerk, a populist and a conjuncturist. Of those who, for the sake of a red word, will not regret their father. It is enough to see his screech from 30.11/2015/XNUMX, where he screeches about the stupidity of Miller, who supposedly overslept the shale revolution in America. Like, we are shamefully late with advanced technologies and we will all die in torment and poverty.
      You can still recall his incantation about - "the dollar will die in a month," which he periodically howls for the past twenty years. and here’s what’s interesting, these rituals always coincided with the next fall of the ruble, it smells like an order, don't you think? I remember the video of the tragedy with the Nord-Ost, when he arrived drunk in a hollow, made his way to the parapet and Sje .... hal. In general, my personal opinion is a corrupt skin, through which its owners pour their govnosbrosy.

        Leontiev, like the propaganda of Channel 1, I think is too clumsy, their obvious antagonist (and in quality too) are old dissidents, such as those who say that the pickle was invented in the USSR “from starvation” ( fool )
        Take a quick look at the history of the pickle, such stuffing as Leontyev will not do.

      I agree. However, I remember the time when Mr. Leontyev was not the top in Rosneft. And somehow it came out very sharply that Russia slept through the shale revolution and the consequences of such a dream can be terrible. I can only refer to my imperfect memory, excuse me. Whether that sharp appearance was connected with the sudden career take-off of Mr. Leontyev, I can’t judge. However, this take-off undoubtedly benefited both Leontyev and Rosneft, and, I'm afraid that sounds overly pathetic, to Russia. A rare case of a reasonable personnel policy, visible from below.

          What for ? She did her job - prices collapsed.
          OPEC has raised its medium-term demand forecast. In a review last year, oil demand by 2020 was expected to reach 29 million barrels per day.

          The new review softens the theme of the cartel’s struggle with the American “shale”, which was first raised in 2012. The previous years of high prices for black gold, which were achieved by the usual policy of reducing production at the right time, led to a sharp increase in production and unconventional types of oil, such as shale. Now OPEC is forced to admit that many shale projects remain cost-effective at lower prices than previously thought. The conclusion for the cartel is disappointing, because it implies that even at 2015 prices, production growth may continue.

          You probably know more OPEC laughing

      I don’t know, I don’t know who is naive here ... what In the territory controlled by ISIS, 20 to 40 thousand barrels of oil are produced per day, and the United States consumes an average of 16,7 million barrels - also per day. The maximum production of ISIS is just over 2% of the required US. In addition, the USA is the largest oil producer (from 9 to 11 million barrels per day); The USA, Russia and Saudi Arabia constantly occupy the first three places in the world in production: one country will come forward, then another.
      Exporting processed products is, of course, great. Here are just countries that consumers also believe that it is more profitable to produce at home, and duties are introduced on the finished product, and raw materials for processing - without duty.

        In fact, 2% of the oil consumed by the States is a lot of money. But who told you that the volumes mined in ISIS are just that? Perhaps they are an order of magnitude larger. And why did you decide that the oil exported by the States would cross their border? This is not at all necessary.

          good Beautiful phrase - you must remember!
          And as to the fact that Leontyev is the top manager of Rosneft - so he is in the main specialty, that is, in top propaganda, and not in the main profile of the corporation. His statements about the fact that the US refineries are all completely refined for the processing of exceptionally heavy oil from Venezuela and the Gulf of Mexico, while light oil is not processed, is still a kind of cunning. The Saudis have been selling theirs for a year - easy! - US oil at a discount to the basic price of 1,5-2 dollars per barrel. And after all they buy and process! Yes, and shale - also light - no one in the United States would have extracted oil if they could not have refined - because the ban on the export of oil from the United States acted in the midst of the rapid growth of shale oil production.
          Therefore, his conclusion that permission to export oil from the United States will not lead to a further drop in oil prices is also partly crafty. And this, and a slight increase in quotas for production by OPEC countries (it was 30 million barrels per day, became 31,5 million, although in 2015 the quotas exceeded and produced 32 million each), and the expectation of oil supplies from Iran, and even the readiness of the countries- exporters, including Russia, to sell oil cheaply because of difficulties in the economy - all this affects prices, and by no means in a favorable way for Russia.

            It is much easier to process light oil :) "fumes" seem to "fly" themselves, in addition to heavy sulfur, and besides the need to clean it, it is also a dangerous occupation, iron saturated with sulfur is ignited by air.

    Or the customer did not see in the heat of the geopolitical struggle.

    Which is also possible, if we take into account the actions of the United States in the international arena in recent years. In foreign policy, failure after failure. And if it weren’t for the satellites looking in their mouths and not the bucks, like the world currency, then the United States would have long been in the fringes of politics.

          quite. Is it like with a half-empty / half-full glass - to swing the BV and Central Asia, setting the maximum number of players at the gambling table, knowing that half of them are cheaters - is it a failure or a success? To destabilize Europe by pumping it with migrants, which distracts political and economic resources and weakens the Euroeconomics - failure or tactical victory? Turning your guilt into "collective responsibility" - how?
          The methods are undoubtedly dirty, but, following the Jesuit formula “the end justifies the means,” I would not be in a hurry to consider the actions of the States to be absolutely disastrous.

        It depends on what is considered a “special” failure.
        There are enough failures in recent years. As with the "hodovka" on the car - you drive along the road, you feel good and comfortable - but the pits begin - you catch one, two, three .... - doesn't it seem scary? - we rush on - but at a certain moment you begin to understand that the “hodovka” is broken - of course you can continue to rush ahead in an increasingly rattling, vibrating car, but until when? - right, until the wheels fall off!
        It seems to us that the Saudis shot the wrong one. Who they ordered. Or the customer did not see in the heat of the geopolitical struggle.

    The result of the "control shot" was that the difference in price between American and European oil did not. Brent lost another $ 3 in price, and that seems to be all. Now they will grow "in pairs."

      how? And who will compensate for the loss of the fuel and energy complex with a dead ruble? And that is precisely why fuel is getting more expensive, despite oil becoming cheaper. And in general, it is more likely to become a sentence to the oil industry, which needs long-term investments.
