Reuters: China began to abandon Russian oil


Sinochem Corp, a Chinese state-owned petrochemical company, decided in May 2020 to abandon Rosneft's products and cooperation with related companies, Reuters reported. The company linked its decision with US sanctions against Rosneft Trading SA, based in Geneva (Switzerland), a structural unit of the Russian oil giant.


It is clarified that in February 2020, Washington increased pressure on the regime of Nicolas Maduro, imposing sanctions against Rosneft Trading SA, which trades Venezuelan oil. Then the US Treasury called May 20, 2020 an extreme date for other companies around the world to curtail their operations with this company. Otherwise, they will be subject to US sanctions.

The agency notes that the actions of the Chinese "comrades" demonstrate the seriousness of the sanctions and US influence in the global commodity market. And this, despite the close relationship between Moscow and Beijing.

It looks like political game: USA and Saudi Arabia want to punish Russia, but China cannot help it (Moscow)

- reports one of the sources.

It is emphasized that on March 16, 2020 the Singapore company Sinochem International Oil, a trading unit of the Chinese Sinochem Group, in the tender documentation for the purchase of oil in May-June indicated that PJSC NK Rosneft or its subsidiaries could not participate in the transaction. The tender provides for the purchase of crude oil for the Sinochem refinery in Quanzhou, in the southeastern Chinese province of Fujian, with the delivery of goods from May 20, 2020 to June 10, 2020. Thus, the Chinese ruled out the products of the Russian company because of fears that Washington might unexpectedly expand sanctions.

Previously we Reportedthat in February 2020, Trump extended anti-Russian sanctions and imposed sanctions against Rosneft Trading SA and its leader Didier Kasimiro.

    - But the “digital” hurray-patriots of which have quieted down ... - but how China was praised ... - And where did what happen ???
    - And today, all this fraternity will begin to “express” here ... here ... here ... their assurances that they had always been on the side of a "reasonable and balanced partnership" and always "condemned such a sweeping partnership", when the success of Russian trade policy is called into question ... - Namely ...- they allegedly never welcomed the “Power of Siberia” (which practically turns into a through pipe, where a whole trillion Russian money has flown away); and the Zvezda shipyard, which will become a symbol of Russian gagging and fraud of Russian managers simultaneously and the project that NOVATEK is starting up on Yamal and which by all indications will be nothing more than the specter of a failed Gazprom ... -So where are all the adherents of all this who so zealously defended here all this quackery which has already begun to manifest itself ...
    - During the years of the Second World War there were policemen who openly and faithfully served the enemies of Russia (enemies of the USSR) ... and then many ended up with the gallows and the camp ... - And those who survived began to completely deny any kind of participation in similar business affairs ... - And here, these "site policemen" already urgently forgot about their "former beliefs" and even began to speak out diametrically opposite to their former site visitors ’... -And how many minuses and paranoids they poured personally into my address ... just horror ... - And how they izgalalsya and drew find yourself in this ... - one in front of the other ... - Obviously, they so easily sought to be known as brave (the eternal position of cowards) ... - And their nicknames are known ... - they should not be called ...
    - And now they have quieted down ... - these "site policemen" ... - No, they are not tormented by conscience ... - they are simply afraid ... - Personally, they are afraid of me ...- Well, the "policemen" are " policemen "... -Hahah .. and only ...

    Again, the victims screeched. laughing Everything was lost, Rosneft was offended, Maduro is dying, give pensions. At night, you probably already sew flags from an old mattress? smile
    Why panic? request Introduced sanctions against one "daughter", will trade through another. Total and business. Sechin’s “family” is big, fellow how many "daughters" are needed, they will do so much, there is no "demographic crisis" there.
    I recommend those who want military retirement to study for about five years, then serve twenty years wherever the Motherland sends them. Try it, you might like it. yes
    By the way, the prosecutor’s office also forgot, judges, sometimes civil servants have a double pension, the list is not complete. hi

    Before you suffer from other people's pensions, earn your own, and for this, in addition to military northern or harmful experience, you need to give part of the salary to the Pension Fund every month, from which they will then feed such sufferers.

    USD 79,19 −1,68
    EUR 84,74 - 3,59
    Oil 28,36 + 7,91%

    That's the whole answer.

      2790 / 42.2 = 66.11
      2790 / 28.36 = 98.38
      98.38 - 79.19 = 18.81
      That's all the arithmetic.

      Why do Russia need dollars?
      In Russia, all payments are in rubles. It was in the 90s that they considered everything in dollars and conducted transactions in dollars, even household ones ... am
      Now, many do not even understand why this was then done.
      By the way, a marker, if a person pays a lot of attention to the exchange rate, then most likely this is not a person from Russia, but from the "near abroad".

        Don’t write anything stupid at all, I understand that you need to write something. For you, I see, there will be an unprecedented shocking discovery if you see that with the appreciation of the dollar, for some reason, almost all products automatically rise in price? Imported goods are faster, domestic ones are delayed, but almost everything rises in price. Never heard of this? Sorry....

    The whole problem is that the States are not going to give up their advantage. So the fight will be necessary. The actions of China clearly show that no one will go against American sanctions. A reasonable decision for the United States would be to remove all Russian oil from the market. Moreover, if it will not be traded for dollars, then there is absolutely no reason for the United States to see it on the market. This makes about 5 million barrels per day. And we cut the competitor, and oil prices will rise. So the States should introduce a complete ban on the trade in Russian hydrocarbons.
    Russia needs to prepare for a complete ban on oil and, possibly, gas trade. What steps can Russia take? I am afraid that there are few of them. In the case of a complete ban on Russian hydrocarbons, apparently, it will be necessary to completely disconnect from the West. We need an "iron curtain" and the first step should be the abolition of the ruble conversion. I am absolutely convinced of this. If not immediately, then this decision has long been overripe. And of course, not fake counter-sanctions, but a complete package. The first thing nationalization is within the country. The first candidate will be RusAl. You can also search for something else.
    ------
    The writers here are still not aware that there is a war? And it has been going on for a long time.

      Not a fact, especially since they also invested in the gas pipeline. And what will they say to their own if they stop taking gas? He goes to the north-west of the country, there is no LNG there, they will offer their people to go to the dung, because Trump is cursing?
      And they will take oil anyway, they’ll simply issue it through another company.

      - She initially was already "down the drain" ... - even before the launch ...
      - It was built by our guarantor and the Company ... - although the Chinese did not invest a torn yuan-wrapper there ... - And at the price for a cubic meter of Russian gas (which we were going to supply through this pipe), the Chinese did not exist for several years at all no agreement was reached ... - Why they built it and what they hoped for ... - it is not clear at all ... - They pulled this pipe through forests, ravines, swamps, swamps ... - it’s crazy to lose ... what an astronomical amount the construction cost the Russian taxpayer ... - we can only assume ... - The grandchildren will also pay for all this Xia will be ...
      - Personally, I wrote a lot about this worthless pipe with the loud name "Power of Siberia" ... - but there were so many "adherents" of this pipe ...
      - And the “Power of Siberia” pipe ... is real ...- a real “collar” for present and future generations of Russian taxpayers ...

          - What are you reading and where are you reading ??? - Here is an excerpt from my comment:

          - And at the price per cubic meter of Russian gas (which we were going to supply via this pipe), no agreement was reached with the Chinese in general for several years ...

          Namely .. that China didn’t owe anything to anyone .... - China has reserved the right to choose the price of Russian gas ... - Believe your eyes ??? And henceforth ...- no need to clown around here ...

      If the States impose sanctions on all hydrocarbons of Russian origin, then all in vain. And any pipeline, and LNG. But this is a full-blown war.
      I hope it doesn’t come to this, but it is necessary to prepare. There are lost battles in a war. The main thing is to win the war.

      From the border we spun the Earth back -
      It was the case, first.
      But our battalion commander twisted it back,
      Having kicked off from the Urals.

      Finally, we were ordered to advance,
      To take away our spans and crumbs,
      But we remember how the sun went back
      And almost went into the East.


      The main problem is that there is no one to give the order.

        We'll have to clarify our position, otherwise there are "wise men" who understand how they are profitable.

        When I say that when full sanctions package, any pipeline or LNG project "in vain", this does not mean that the projects were incorrect. And the Power of Siberia, and SP-2, and LNG on the Yamal Peninsula are quite justified projects. Designed for the future and the return for 10-15-20 years. And most importantly, these projects are aimed at developing infrastructure, creating jobs and developing the Far East and Siberia. It is impossible to compare a long-term project for the development of regions with momentary conditions.

        The Power of Siberia -2 (Altai) gas pipeline will be especially important. I consider this project even more important than the Power of Siberia. At present, the situation does not allow using them at full capacity. The problem is not that the projects are in vain, but that the world is in crisis. The Great Depression of the 21st Century Pattern.

      Honestly, Iryna, I don’t agree with you on everything, far from everything I like in your manner of presentation. For example, I consider your ideas on expanding your presence in Syria somewhat delusional; in the position on China, I agree more.

        - The word "delusional" personally I suggest you exclude .... -if our conversation can continue ...
        - And personally, I’m not looking for anyone’s friendship and like-minded people here ... - It somehow seems to me ...
        - It’s just that when tu_po_st begins to go through the roof and it is so unanimously supported by the chorus, then involuntarily ... etc ...
        - As regards specifically the "expansion of the Russian presence in Syria" .. the need for this already speaks for itself ... - True, the time has been lost and it will not be possible to catch up ...- And the entire Russian presence in Syria today is held exclusively and specifically on our guarantor ...
        - If today our guarantor somehow changed, then Russia would have to urgently drop everything and leave Syria ... - What, isn’t it ???
        - And, I repeat again ...- that I do not need either "friendship" or "support" ...- I am only interested in objectivity and argumentation ... - And without any familiarity and amiconism ...
        - Yes ... and by the way ...- which of what I said earlier is so much discordant with today's reality ... - Okay ...- time will put everything ...

            - What you need ...- will always come in handy ... -Hahah ...
            - As for Russia in Syria ... - Russia made a tactical and strategic mistake, having established serious relations with the poor Arab state ... - No positions in the Middle. Russia has not strengthened the east (they will immediately forget about Russia, on the second day everyone will forget there .... - as soon as she leaves Syria) ... - Expensive manipulations with the Turkish Stream suffered a complete failure ... - But in this in Russia, simply no one is going to admit ... - Friendship with Turkey - for Russia, too, turned out to be a complete failed adventure ... - And today, all the ephemerality of Russia's existence in the Middle. The East rests solely on our guarantor ... - It depends on him ...- how long Russia will be able to maintain Syria ... and how long it will "be friends" with Turkey ... - Both of these are completely pointless and wasteful for Russia ... - When changing the leadership of Russia, a very quick exit of Russia from Syria is possible ... - Yes, such that the exodus of the USSR from all former Soviet military bases (Cuba, Vietnam, etc.) seems like a simple adventure ...

              Here, I almost completely agree, has this "guarantor" just been given to you? There, the principle itself is not particularly viable and promising, even if there is a “guarantor”. Tear yourself up, like the Union on Afghanistan and others, requiring continuous feeding "friends"?

                - Well, in Russia, the king ... is always more than the king ...
                - And today our guarantor is not only the embodiment of observing constitutional guarantees (that is, providing the population with “bread”) of Russian people; and also the general manager for the provision of "spectacles" ... - And the spectacles ... are not only entertaining on TV, where various secular scandals and other things are shown ...; and also a "small victorious war" (on which Russia has always always broken off very much) ... - this is the Russian campaign in Syria ... -where too - another bummer ... as always ... - Well , and our guarantor today (being a weak threesome in the economic, political and strategic affairs of the state) and started this whole "extra-state escapade", which found wide support from the Russian citizen ... - everyone just took it all for the next show .. - Well, but what it all ... poured ... - But that's another story ...
                - But, nevertheless ... personally, I’m specifically answering you ... - here the guarantor is the main person .. even if we leave aside our oligarchs for a while ...- And he always personally personally actively participated and involved in all these activities ...
