Adventures of the best soldier of Saudi Arabia - a barrel of oil

76
The Minister of Energy of Russia, Alexander Novak, presented his version of what, or rather, who, today has the greatest influence on the price of "black gold". As is known, the current oil quotes demonstrate anti-records not only since the height of the international economic crisis 2008-2009, but also anti-records of the 11-year period - starting with the 2004 year.


According to the Russian minister, the authorities of Saudi Arabia are “to blame” for the new stage of destabilization of the oil market, which have increased production by about 1,5 million barrels per day.

Adventures of the best soldier of Saudi Arabia - a barrel of oil


Thus, the official Riyadh is trying to eliminate not only the so-called "shale" competition, which the United States tried to impose, but also to strengthen its position in the markets due to the partial lifting of sanctions against Iran. Today, Iran intends to roughly double the supply of crude oil abroad, and until the sanctions were lifted, Tehran was “allowed” to export no more than 1 million barrels.

It should be noted that in the baseline scenario of the budget of Russia the price of oil at the level of 50 dollars per barrel is laid. This is exactly the level at which, according to the calculations of the Russian government, the budget deficit in 2016 will not exceed 2,9%. However, according to the calculations of the World Bank, the Russian economy will continue to fall, even if the price reaches the 53 dollar per barrel. A similar conclusion was made at the Central Bank of the Russian Federation.

Today's quotes do not reach the "target" indicators. And do not reach more than significantly - about 30%. The office of Elvira Nabiullina, who, if someone suddenly forgot, was foreign "partners" recognized as the best head of the Central Bank of the year among all the heads of the Central Bank of the world, said that it is likely that "the scenario will be worse than we thought." The so-called "risky scenario" determined the price of oil at the level of 40 dollars per barrel. But today, oil will not rebound from the 36-37 bar. So what is going to take the Central Bank, if the sale of oil will not bring the previously planned revenues?

If we start from the previous steps of the Bank of Russia, then we can assume that the office of Elvira Nabiullina will leave the tool unaltered to achieve its goals. And this tool is the depreciation of the ruble against the so-called main reserve currencies of the world. Already at the beginning of the week, the dollar updated highs from January of this year, making it clear that Russia is dealing practically with the deja vu of the 2014 model’s end of the year. A couple of differences is that the Central Bank tried to cut off disparate speculators from the market (although who in this case is a big speculator is the question ...) introducing special rules for acquiring foreign currency, as well as having a fixed base rate (at the end of last year it was 17,5%, and since 3 August, the key rate is at 11%).

It seems that it all boiled down to the fact that our Western "friends" finally got to the core (unless, of course, it was not with their submission that such tools were used at all) by the methods of the Central Bank and Elvira Nabiullina, and therefore leading experts of Western banks began to publish stress forecasts for the future ruble rate year. So in Bank of America-Merrill Lynch published a forecast about the ruble exchange rate on 2016, based on those indicators of the budget deficit, which was previously approved in the Russian Federation. So, American economists are confident that if everything comes down to a new stage in the devaluation of the Russian ruble, then with oil prices at 35-36 dollars per barrel, a unit of US currency in Russia will cost about 94 rubles.

Against this background, Dvorkovich’s statements he made in an interview "Vesti.Ekonomika"about the possibility of falling oil prices and up to 25 dollars, they do not add optimism. But you want to finish the year more optimistically ... However, Arkady Dvorkovich himself decided to add what are called pink tones to gray oil reports, and said that although there is a big the game in the oil market, this game cannot go on for a long time. According to the vice-premier, “it can be reached (the price of oil is up to $ 25 per barrel) - this does not mean that it will come; and if oil goes down to low quotations, investments will decrease into the industry that automatically leads to a shortage of oil growth of quotations. "

In fact, a decline in investment in the oil industry is already observed. Dozens of American shale companies that scored concessional loans for the implementation of projects burst like soap bubbles. Investments in “difficult” shelf oil in Norway, Canada, Russia, Britain, and the United States are falling. According to all the laws of the market, the price of "black gold" should have started to go up smoothly. However, again we have to remember about Saudi Arabia, which clearly decided to take what is called starvation. The cost of producing a barrel of oil in this country does not exceed 3 dollars, and therefore, with all the burning of hundreds of billions of dollars in reserves, the Saudis still have enough reserves to reduce oil prices by increasing production and supplying oil on the world market. But there are enough reserves only to finally not kill their own approach to the economy, but not to maintain the expenditure side of the budget on the values ​​to which the Saudis are so used. It should be recalled that the Saudi budget for 2015 year was made up from the value of the price of oil at the level of 95-100 dollars per barrel. In order to fulfill budget commitments, Riyadh is firing reserves as no other country in the world, including Russia, does today.

Another thing is that in Russia, the cost of oil production (at most actively developed offshore fields) is about 5-6 dollars per barrel. In other words, there is a certain stock in the Russian Federation. But the trouble is that a) we have fewer Saudi reserves in 7-8, b) it’s scary to even imagine the ruble exchange rate that our valiant Central Bank will issue at this oil price as a tool to “curb inflation” ...

And the main question is: how many more years and governments will it take for the Russian economy to react to the dynamics of oil prices quieter, and oil itself is no longer considered the sacred cow of the entire domestic financial and economic system if there is a much wider range of real tools to overcome the frequent crises ?

        Or the groundhog sees its shadow. This is the question, if the KSA budget is much more dependent on oil prices than the Russian budget, then why does the Saudi currency not devalue? Our Central Bank and the Ministry of Finance are precisely the fall in oil prices convincingly explain the depreciation of the ruble. What are Saudis doing wrong?

          And the Saudis in the budget 2016g. pledged 29 $ per barrel. At this price, the dollar will cost already for a hundred.

By and large, all the information you have to take in this way and then filter it.

                      Surely I do not know this. Recently, I rarely communicate with Saudi princes and the king. I drop their calls. From the principle.
                      But to assume that this is done to ruin competitors and capture their sales markets is possible. Competition, a difficult thing. Very often manufacturers dump, often at a loss, for the sake of future profits.
                      In addition, do not forget, CA is a kingdom. Theoretically, a monarch with relatives can replenish the state budget from their own pockets.
                      And one more, the most important thing. Perhaps they thought that a lot of oil sold at $ 29 would bring them more income than a little oil sold at $ 100.

          This map has no specifics, not everything is as smooth as it seems at first glance.
          Look at the dynamics of the real exchange rate over three years and see what volatility is going on now.

          Saudi authorities increased domestic gas prices by 40% against a record budget deficit, reports the BBC. Now gasoline in the kingdom costs 24 US cents per liter.

          Gas prices and some utilities in Saudi Arabia are traditionally kept low through subsidies. The country is a world leader in oil production. Almost one and a half times the price increase is already called by experts the largest reform in the country in recent decades.

          As previously reported, the government of Saudi Arabia planned a state budget deficit for 2016 year at the level of 327 billion riyals ($ 87 billion), or about 16% of GDP.

          According to some experts, a serious factor in the formation of the deficit was the fall in oil prices.

            Counting from GDP is, of course, something. Let's find it easier.
            Budget revenues - 137 billion dollars.
            Costs - 224 billion dollars.
            Deficit - 87 billion dollars. or 38,8%, which is a lot. This is at a fixed price of oil at 29 dollars. per barrel.
            Something tells me that the Saudis for $ 29 do not seriously count. "Make the wind," as they used to say in Odessa.
            But, on the other hand, in 2015. their budget deficit amounted to 98 billion dollars. And nothing alive so far.

          Our Central Bank and the Ministry of Finance explain the drop in the ruble exchange rate precisely with the fall in oil prices. What are Saudis doing wrong?


          They spend their reserves, and the Russian Federation saves. After all, they have explained it a million times. The government is restructuring corporate debt. Now corporations give a significant part of their income to foreign loans. This is done in the currency in which they receive income. When the peak of payments passes, payments will go no longer over the hill, but to the budget of the Russian Federation. That will stabilize the currency and cover the budget deficit. What does the capitalists fail to squeeze on? A budget is a sacred cow for two reasons. Firstly, it is social stability, which is especially important in conditions of confrontation with the West. And secondly, because officials saw the budget, and the smaller the amount, the less opportunity to cut it.

            Did you come up with this yourself, or read it somewhere? Do you remember what Professor Preobrazhensky advised? About the "do not read the Bolshevik newspapers"? Listen.
            At the same time, I recommend that you take an interest in Russia's total debt. As well as the size of its reserve funds. As well as the cost of ALL recoverable oil reserves, taking into account its cost at the border. As well as the current price of this oil. Then bring it all together and after that draw some conclusions.
            In all these figures, only the price of oil is a variable. If it does not increase, there will be very big problems.

              In fact, the DEBT of Russia, mainly corporate, is just the value of the variable. After all, we are not dill and do not declare a default, but we regularly transfer debt from foreign to domestic. Therefore, external debt is reduced. And that means that the interest will remain in Russia, and not go to the West. And this is ACTIVE, is it really not clear?

                  Dear, assets are all that goes plus. Therefore, debts cannot be assets if they are not other people's debt obligations. And it decreased due to a factor that I have already told you - corporate debts of Russian companies are moving to Russia from abroad. They repay debts to the West, borrowing from the state. What do they borrow in rubles, and give in bucks, buying currency on them. Hence the instability of the ruble in this year.

                  Yes? Do you need to extinguish the internal one? Or do you think the kiddie is supposed to be?


                  It was about external debt. And now no one is repaying debts, they are being restructured. You, my friend, have lagged behind life, now it’s not 90 that you would "throw".

                  And you didn’t understand anything, my dear. Read again and spell it. The debt was external, but it became internal. Interest was paid to the West, and now they remain INSIDE, that is, they go to our economy.

                  You need to learn the basics of economics.


                  Well, I'm afraid that reaching the level that debts are “assets” does not shine for me.


                  It is often much more profitable to invest them.


                  Can you tell me the mechanism of investing debts? Of course, I am a dense person, I know how profit is invested, but how to invest debts, that is, what is not there, is beyond my weak understanding, as well as debt assets.

                    What did you mean? That debt has declined? So I already wrote to you that it was not reduced by itself, but as a result of the sale of a part (reduction of stock) of oil. Of course, if you sell all the oil and give the money, then the debt will somehow change, probably. Or do you think not?

                    Do you catch the thread of conversation? I actually wrote to you that the assets (oil reserves) have become a little less, because oil was sold abroad. The consequence of this was a decrease in debt, because money (dollars) from its sale partially (or completely, did not look, it does not matter) went to pay off debts.

                    It’s good that you understand that. You would not write about the economy. Not yours. Since you don’t know what is usually borrowed not to swell everything. And not everyone takes a loan to buy a sofa. A business usually takes just to invest in something. When own funds are not enough.

                      What are you talking about? That debt has declined?


                      Hm, dear, did you see the quotes that I quoted? After all, it was indicated there that the variable is only the price of oil, and then it turned out that the size of the external debt was also. That's what I mean, in a dispute you must be able to admit wrong, otherwise truth will not be born.

                      Do you catch the thread of conversation? I actually wrote to you that the assets (oil reserves) have become a little less


                      Yes, I already understood this later, I only thought that you would talk about what our reserves spent on repaying debts. But you, apparently, remember the line of conversation that the gold reserves are preserved. Just, I'm sorry, but in any oil trade, not necessarily in the repayment of debts, its amount is reduced. Such is the dialectic.

                      And where did this sold currency come from? A bucks printing press is still in Washington.


                      So the proceeds from the trade, after all, in bucks. And many expenses are in rubles. It is these expenses that go to loans from loans, and the bucks come back. But in this arz already with benefit - reducing the tax burden.

                      I applaud you while standing. With the ears. Perhaps you are the only person in Russia who does not know that the main thing in sanctions against Russia is that it was deprived of the opportunity to restructure debts


                      Dear, but your name is not Dyambo :), since you can applaud with your ears?
                      Everything is elementary, dear Watson, it is impossible to restructure debts for a hedgehog, but you can do it at home. The debts of the oligarchs from this are not reduced. But they should no longer be in the West, but in Russia, i.e. external debt decreased, restructured. And houses are also being restructured. Clear-red, at our expense. But we, in fact, spoke of currency and external debt, and not of social justice, which under capitalism would be very, very foolish to look for.

                      Are you talking about 44 billion? Colossally. But what about the rest of the little things? With 555 billion dollars?


                      They will give back, as well as 44 billion. By the way, 44 billion is only a body of debt, they gave another percent to a hundred billion. And now, the peak of payments has passed - the highest interest paid, now the main body of debt will be paid. So there will be no such large payments.

                      They don’t go, but run straight. Looks like the ruble is sausage from these all incoming and outgoing interest.


                      They told you that it’s “currency breaking”. The problem is that they have not yet gone, they will go from next year. 2014 and 2015 were peak for debt. Therefore, such a problem with the currency. Well, no one canceled the budget games with the dollar rate. since the ruble was dropped, God himself ordered that it be used for the budget.

                      And it doesn’t shine for me. I actually wrote about credit resources. This is even understood by schoolchildren now. But not you.
                      The mechanism of investing credit resources. Those. borrowed money.


                      Ah ... there you are. So they already ... that s invested. Now only pay. And new ones, as you correctly deigned to notice, are not given ... in the West. And ours give, and they are “invested" in debt repayments. Or can it still be repeated?

                      You would not write about the economy. Not yours.


                      Yes, not mine, of course, just when they write nonsense, well, I can’t help myself. I’m a good person, I can’t calmly watch how a person makes a laughing stock of himself.

                      Since you don’t know what is usually borrowed not to swell everything. And not everyone takes a loan to buy a sofa.


                      No, dear, you are not Dyambo (just do not be offended and do not complain to the moderators, you yourself wrote about applause with your ears). You are Captain Evidence.

                      A business usually takes just to invest in something.


                      Well, finally it came. After all, it is clear-red that the money was taken for investment. But they are ALREADY invested. And now you have to pay for them. There is such a feature as a credit schedule, according to which the debtor gives the creditor funds. So, to pay on this schedule NOW, at such oil prices, our oligarchs can not. Previously, everything was clear, refinanced and enjoy life further. But here the trap slammed. They do not give loans, sanctions, damn it burned. That oligarchs and the native state is in a hurry to help. Helping to restructure debt through domestic loans and reducing external debt. Is it clear? Or do you need to explain on the fingers?

          The map is also interesting. Dvaluation in Angola is less than in Zambia. Angola is a very large oil exporter, Zambia in general, in my opinion, does not have its own oil fields. What are they doing wrong in Zambia? laughing Devaluation in the oil-bearing South Sudan is lower than in the oil-free Sudan (northern).

      It’s a big mistake to believe that the Saudis do it all on their own .. There is no world capital behind them, no one even calls the Saudis themselves! Where is all their money * Who supplies them with equipment for oil production? Who are the experts that produce this oil? Who supplies absolutely ALL products to these countries? Maybe someone will tell you what in these countries is produced in addition to oil and gas? And who guards all these towers, terminals, tankers, all the wealth acquired .. Whose weapons and PMCs guarantee peace and tranquility in these countries? Accordingly, there is no talk about any suffocation of oil shale. the fact that these projects are closed in the USA is completely nonsense, they will print pieces of paper and cover all losses, but they will remain in infrastructure and technology, and at the hour when it’s impatient, it’s quite possible to unreserve everything, but there will be some losses, but this is a minuscule because money was invested in real concrete projects and it’s become not virtual zeros like some .. So the blow is delivered exclusively to Russia, and all the others come as a bonus, all these Venezuelans, Iran and others are such an addition .. Russia is the last bastion to the global takeover of the WORLD, will devour it our civilization will be sad, a bunch of "elite" and a chip herd .. Therefore, the Saudis work in the interests of these comrades., and they have no choice that absolutely everything will lose, palaces, yachts and a well-fed, quiet life ..

Of course there is a crowd of workers, a mass of machine tools and factories, full of semi-trained engineers and programmers, but this is only enough to attend to today's production facilities and technologies., And not about what kind of competition in the light of high technology is not in question, I repeat that China that India is a factory but not a scientific institution, and if we add here their 100% dependence on raw materials, it becomes clear that after the fall of Russia they are destined for free workers and they will change nothing can't do this ..

          Saudi Arabia announced an increase in gas prices by as much as 40%. The reason for the sharp rise was the budget deficit record in the history of the country.
          As Saudi King Salman Ibn Abdulaziz Al Saud stated, the country will seek other sources of income. It is assumed that budget expenditures will be reduced by approximately 10%, and some foreign assets will be sold.
          Recall that the largest oil exporter in the world, Saudi Arabia, began to cut project budgets and military purchases. Also in the country for the first time introduced VAT.

          The fall in oil prices exacerbated the economy of Saudi Arabia, forcing the country to open its own Stock Exchange for foreigners in June 2015. The Saudi authorities also relaxed the rules for investors in order to attract them to their direct shares to reduce the country's economy’s dependence on oil.

    In the department of Elvira Nabiullina, who, if someone suddenly forgot, was foreign "partners" recognized as the best head of the Central Bank of the year among all the heads of the Central Bank of the world,


    As a citizen of RUSSIA, I consider NABIULLINA the worst head of the Central Bank ... looking at what she has done with the ruble savings of the citizens of RUSSIA ...
    for her, the interests of ordinary citizens do not exist ... to hell with me such a Central Bank that thinks only about the interests of usurers-bankers.

    Saudis produce about 13% of world oil production. Russia - about the same (if in tons). About the same is the USA. Between these three players and there is a battle. The advantage of the mattress is the printing press. The Saudis have accumulated reserves and a relatively small population. The advantage of Russia is that it does not live by a single oil, and an enterprising people, not subject to whining.
    So let's see whose take. I put on Russia.

      The fact of the matter is that amers have a printing press, the Saudis have billions of products from this press, and they got worried when some countries decided to abandon this printed product with dead US presidents.

    This is the question, if the KSA budget is much more dependent on oil prices than the Russian budget, then why does the Saudi currency not devalue? Our Central Bank and the Ministry of Finance explain the drop in the ruble exchange rate precisely with the fall in oil prices. What are Saudis doing wrong?

    Saudis spend their reserves on maintaining the national currency. This is what we did in 2009.
    With a short-term drop in oil prices, this would be a ride. But the depreciation will give impetus to the entire economy, and not just the oil sector. The course should be real, not artificial. But the real one is when the cost of production in our country is not more expensive than import. It's just that we are used to living with an overvalued ruble.

      It has long been clear to everyone that the situation with oil prices was provoked by the United States and its satellites, in particular by Saudi Arabia, and all the lies here on the site about some kind of “crisis” (some figures from Israel have succeeded in this) in Russia about the “falling down” lol oil supersaturation of the market and so on is nothing more than a way to arouse people's discontent against our government. We must understand that there is a war going on against us as long as it is purely economic and the task of the USA and its satellites like the EU, Israel, the SA, Qatar is to “lower” the standard of living of the country's population as low as possible to create the largest possible stratum of people dissatisfied with life and ultimately destroy the country.
      It is Saudi Arabia that is guilty of destabilizing the global oil market, said Energy Minister Alexander Novak.
      Saudi Arabia this year increased its production by 1,5 million barrels per day, thereby destabilizing the situation, in fact, in the market.

      But now the question arises: Why should the main market players have to lower production and raise the price of oil in order to protect the main competitors? But this is exactly what you are writing about. No, production will increase until the budgets of market players hold on or until a minimum of players remains on the market.

      Adding companies according to The Guardian are preparing for the price of $ 20 per barrel.

    Comrade officers! Attention please. I would not want to repeat myself, but I have to. Today, there are three leading countries in oil production - Saudi Arabia, Russia, and the USA. And while in the first and third countries high-quality and highly profitable oil is produced, in Russia, on the contrary, low-quality and low-profit oil are produced. The United States is the world leader in consumption. In addition, the entire world oil trade is carried out for "oil industry", and the printing press of these "oil industry" is in the hands of a private joint-stock company "US Federal Reserve". Now think about who benefits and who regulates oil prices. And you say the market.
    Now I explain for the especially dull. In 1972, the Saudis sold oil for national currency, an average of 4 "candy wrappers" per barrel, while its cost did not exceed 3 "candy wrappers", Russia during this period sold its oil, at best. at a price of no more than 3 "candy wrappers" per barrel and its prime cost was at best within 5 "candy wrappers". In 1973, the United States entered into an agreement with the Saudis, according to which they pledged to trade oil only for "candy wrappers." In exchange for this, the United States pledged to supply its modern weapons to the Saudis and provide support in the confrontation with Israel. In addition, by agreement, the Saudis were to invest surplus profits in US debt at interest. The Saudis agreed and oil rose in price to 30 "candy wrappers" per barrel. What did the Saudis get in the end? A conditional example is the cost of a barrel of high-quality oil - 30 "candy wrappers", cost - 3 "candy wrappers", the purchase of weapons and other nishtyaks - 7 "candy wrappers", there remain 20 "candy wrappers" for which government bonds are bought at 10% (+2 "candy wrapper" ) and as a result, the Saudis get instead of 30 “candy wrappers” for a barrel of 32 (30 + 2) “candy wrappers”. Profit - 29 "candy wrappers" (32-3 = 29). Profitable? Sure.
    What does Russia get? A conditional example is the cost of a barrel of low-quality oil - 15 "candy wrappers", the cost of 5 "candy wrappers", profit - 10 "candy wrappers". So who do you think is beneficial to play in lowering oil prices?
    Now, what does Russia gain from abandoning the candy wrapper? When selling oil for rubles, the counterparty must buy rubles from Russia for its currency, and then buy oil for rubles. Example, conditionally a barrel of our oil costs 1000 rubles, then for example China, you need to buy 1000 rubles from us for 300 yuan, and then buy a barrel of oil for 1000 rubles. As a result, we get 1000 rubles + 300 yuan per barrel. Profitable? Sure. Here is such arithmetic. Therefore, mattresses simply will not give up their benefits without a fight. Here, somehow so briefly.

        Respected! Before you blame someone for incompetence, learn to qualitatively argue your comments. The point is that in Russia, mainly low-quality oil is produced, with a high sulfur content and at rather low depths, and so that it has at least minimal competitiveness, close to low-sulfur, it is mixed with higher quality, which entails an increase in cost. So, keep the materiel and your average temperature in the hospital with you. Something like this.
        If there are any objections to assessing the role of the US Federal Reserve Chuck, which I have given, in the quest to establish global economic dominance by introducing a candy wrapper or a petroleum fantasy into the world economy, as you wish, justify your objections without resorting to an average temperature in the hospital. I believe, and not without reason, that only the rejection of a “candy wrapper” or “oil-fantasy” can lead Russia out of this economic trap. Everything else is just demagogy. Sorry if I spoke sharply.

They are also overproduction ... Rabsila, development, development, transport, energy - everything is getting more expensive. So why does oil fall?

      Actually, yes, they are getting cheaper. Only here, their prime cost is significantly higher than that of oil, therefore the cost level is relatively low.

      . So why does oil fall?


      Since its cost is very, very low compared to market value and market players began to sell it at a price significantly lower than the market value. That's how 100+ dollars per barrel turned into 30+ per barrel.
