Rosneft maneuver in Venezuela: Kremlin sends Trump a clear signal


At first glance, the informational message about the “departure” of one of the leading Russian companies working in the extraction and sale of energy from Venezuela should have created an explosion of sincere joy and even glee in the United States. Well, they survived, “squeezed out” these Russians, achieved their goal by showing the world the miraculous and irresistible power of American sanctions!


However, there is no enthusiasm in the local politics, or, especially, in the expert community, something is not observed. Quite the contrary: irritation and anger reign there: "These Russian sly people again cheated us and spat in our faces!"

Background question


To begin with, we briefly recall what happened to the Venezuelan assets of our Rosneft. First of all, being determined to go all the way in their attempts to overthrow the legitimate president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, in Washington they were finally convinced that it would be impossible to do this while the legitimate authority in the country has the support of Moscow. At a minimum, without direct military intervention, which the American warriors could not dare even before the worldwide coronavirus pandemic, being in a much better “form”. On the other hand, in the United States they clearly understood what enormous material losses Russia would suffer if Guaido and his gang got to power in Caracas, who repeatedly stated that they did not intend to repay the debts of the “criminal regime” and recognize the prisoners as its representatives deals. The sad experience of Ukraine, where a similar situation has resulted in multibillion-dollar damage for our country, is still before the Kremlin, but in Venezuela everything is much more serious. Until the last days, Rosneft corporations owned very significant shares in leading companies in the oil and oil refining sectors - such as Petromiranda and Petrovictoria, Petromonagas, Petroperija, Boqueron, as well as some others. A considerable amount of money has been invested in them, and the Americans quite rightly believed that, being in their right mind, our company wouldn’t give up all this just like that, “you live great”. That is why they went the other way, it seemed to them, in a completely brilliant way - they made every effort to turn Venezuelan assets into Rosneft's toxic, not profitable, but losses.

This was done, as usual, by imposing sanctions against subsidiaries of our oil producing corporation - Rosneft Trading and TNK Trading. Rosneft itself has been under sectoral sanctions by Washington for the sixth year already, and nothing lives. In this case, announcing the introduction of restrictions against the above structures, representatives of the US Department of State very clearly emphasized: the reason is "direct work in the Venezuelan oil sector", namely, "selling bypassing American sanctions" of the local oil. At the same time, specific contracts, volumes and dates were called, which, however, was already completely unimportant. Elliot Abrams, US Special Representative for Venezuela voicing the position of the State Department, made it clear that in order to achieve the lifting of sanctions, our oil traders will not only have to “change their behavior”, but also take certain “concrete and significant” steps to “maintain a democratic Venezuelan order. " Obviously, Juan Guaido will be thrown some money - not otherwise ... In Moscow, they were initially invigorated regarding the incident, saying that the restrictions would affect less than 1% of the company's profits and that Washington has chosen the most “sparing” sanctions regime in general. However, an extremely unpleasant surprise lay in wait for our oil industry workers where they were unlikely to expect this: the Chinese comrades suddenly began to refuse deals with Rosneft, who fully knew all the "charms" of American pressure. One of the leading petrochemical companies in the Celestial Empire, Sinochem Corp, expressed its reluctance to continue cooperation not only with Rosneft’s “black list” daughters, but also with any enterprises associated with it. And this was already a serious blow. But “the next in line” may well be the same India, where a lot of our “black gold” is leaving and which now does not at all seek to spoil relations with the United States. It was urgent to solve something ...

"Stick your sanctions ..."


And the solution is found. Elegant, I must admit, is completely not what Washington was counting on and therefore looking in relation to its frank mockery. Rosneft got rid of Venezuelan assets - decisively, definitively and irrevocably. But ... All of them were sold in no way to Western energy corporations (although, one can argue, there were such proposals), but to "a structure 100% owned by the Russian government." That is, one company leaves Venezuela, but not our country. We must pay tribute to the Americans, as mentioned above, they understood the meaning of what happened quite correctly. So, Patricia Laya, the head of the Bloomberg agency in Caracas, believes:

This step, in fact, gives the Kremlin an opportunity for a new maneuver - after all, the assets are transferred to the ownership of a structure completely controlled by the Russian government, which is not under US sanctions.

The rational decision. It protects Rosneft, an important asset in Venezuela, as well as the opportunity to continue to help Maduro, if there is such a desire. Moreover, it can help Putin help Rosneft during a difficult market situation. However, the details of the transaction are not fully known ...

- summarizes Francisco Monaldi, an expert at the Baker Institute research center in the United States.

However, Andrew Weiss, vice president of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace research center, overtakes all his colleagues in terms of the degree of frankness and sarcasm of their commentary:

This is an uncoded signal from the Kremlin and Sechin to the Trump administration: put your sanctions in one place!

Honestly, this is not a free interpretation of the author, but a completely verbatim quote taken from the American media ... Given that the current head of the White House did indeed personally decide to impose sanctions on Rosneft subsidiaries, which was repeatedly emphasized, then yes - very disappointing.

In order to better understand the mood of American commentators, it is worth considering that these discriminatory decisions were, among other things, one of the tools in the war on energy markets that the United States is waging against our country. It can’t even be called undeclared - Trump himself and every second representative of his administration (not counting every first one) regularly declare from any rostrum their intention to rid the world of “harmful Russian energy carriers,” whose supply is, of course, “leverage of political influence” . The last “pearl” from this area was, if you remember, the announcement of the intention to impose sanctions against Russia “for destabilizing the situation in the oil market”. It is impossible to think of anything more absurd, but where is the State Department with the White House, and where is reason and logic ?! Now Washington is faced with a difficult choice — either to pretend that “everything is fine,” while the whole world understands that it didn’t happen according to his will, or try to start a trade war with the Russian state as a whole. Do you dare? I will allow myself to doubt it deeply. Recent reports from the "oil fronts" give every reason to think so. In the United States itself, everything is not just bad, but very bad. Black, sorry for the expression, "gold" has come down there to a negative price! Mercuria Energy Group Ltd, the seller of Wyoming Asphalt Sour oil, gives it to customers not for nothing, but pays 19 cents for each barrel removed from storage. It is slightly better with other varieties: Wyoming Sweet fell to $ 3 per barrel, Canadian Western Select - to $ 5,06, Oklahoma Sour - to 5,75, Southern Green Canyon - to 11,51. Plains All American Pipeline LP - one of the largest companies in the United States involved in the pipeline transportation of energy, not just asking, but pleading:

Stop drilling! Storage and pipelines are full! There’s nowhere to go!

The oil industry of the United States not only came to the disastrous line of collapse, it successfully stepped over it and now flies into the abyss under a peppy hooting more and more widespread coronavirus covering the country. Everything was very unfortunate, what can I say ... Moreover, Washington’s hopes for allies from the Middle East also did not materialize. Contrary to the forecasts of some analysts, Europe did not rush to buy super-cheap oil from shamelessly dumping Arabs. The reason is banal and has already been voiced above: "There is nowhere to go!" Due to the pandemic, the European Union is in terrifying economic, and in particular, transport and industrial stagnation. Moreover, Russia is again in a winning position. COVID-19 “closes” ports much more reliable than any customs. Overcrowded tankers are forced to hang out on raids, not being able to ship the delivered raw materials. But the pipelines do not represent any epidemic danger ... The most reasonable thing that Washington today can do with its anti-Russian sanctions is to really do with them not very culturally, but based on the current situation, it is quite pragmatic. Moscow gives him a great opportunity to get out of the situation with minimal “loss of face”, but he clearly indicates what he expects. Rosneft, through the words of its spokesman Mikhail Leontyev, has already announced that it is looking forward to when "American regulators will fulfill publicly their promises." That is - they will announce the lifting of sanctions, at least with Rosneft Trading and TNK Trading. Will this happen? The answer to this question no longer depends on the actions of the Russian side, which has de jure fully complied with all the formalities properly, but on American sanity.

Any other actions, except for the abolition of restrictions, will look, as mentioned above, the declaration of Russia full-blown economic war is completely beyond all laws and regulations. Is the US ready for such a confrontation today? The question is more than debatable.

    The decision is correct, but, as always, half-hearted. I expected a full package of US sanctions in April. So the decision now is timely. Why half? I expected the nationalization of Rosneft. But Putin still holds the position of liberalism and therefore will not go for nationalization. And this is fraught.
    He does not hit in full force. Maybe there are some political reasons for this. But they beat him at full strength. How long it will be going on?...

      The fact is that the company to which Rosneft sold the Venezuelan package is 100% owned by the Russian government. This, in fact, is the beginning of privatization.

        It's clear. The decision is right. Now sanctions will need to be introduced against the government of the Russian Federation. And this is another reality. I wrote about this yesterday. But there is a clogged topic.
        But still - I was waiting for complete nationalization. Private companies will always be at risk of imposing sanctions. This must be borne in mind.

          And I just like Putin’s manner of acting gradually, in small steps. Too often in its history Russia has been waving too much, and then its efforts turned into a zilch.
          The same Turkish war of 1877-78. Putin himself said that his policy is not to drive the rat into a corner. And it is right.

            Maybe. That a rat cannot be driven into a corner is probably true. But I think that Putin simply does not want a confrontation with the West. And therefore, by such actions it simply shows that it is necessary to agree.

              Well yes. And among the owners of Rosneft there are companies from those countries that do not make sense to annoy prematurely.
              That part of the assets was taken out - this is well motivated by the actions of Trump. The owners understand, but the trend for Trump and others is indicated quite clearly. Like, Putin didn’t want to nationalize, Trump taught him bad things.
              Putin often gives hints.
              At the end of last year, he said that he did not want cleanings, it was then difficult to stop the cleaning machine. But he said that in the end - an ellipsis, a hint, do not force it to do it.
              And about criticism of the national policy of Lenin during the creation of the USSR. He perfectly understands that Lenin was forced to assemble an empire on a national basis. There are national elites, and it was necessary to stop the influence of Trotsky, who had influence, precisely at the federal level.
              But, realizing this perfectly, Putin made it clear that when the USSR was created, 2.0 national associations would no longer exist. 70 years of feeding riddlers and parasites is unacceptable.
              So in this case, with the question of nationalization, the arrows are transferred to Trump in advance.
              And when they try to declare sanctions to the state of the Russian Federation, they will nationalize the Central Bank and get rid of the IMF. And Trump will be to blame. But Trump, perhaps this is what is needed. For example, it will exit the IMF and launch a new currency. A lot of options.

                Response options to the full package of sanctions are known. Will the Kremlin go to him? That is the question...
                I said that Venezuela is the very davit on which everything is tied now. Get the States control over Venezuela - and a full package of sanctions would not be long in coming. But Putin has shown that Maduro will not surrender. To introduce a full package now is to get a refinery stop in the States and Europe. It is fraught with sideways ...

                  ... this is the dowel on which everything is tied now.

                  - what exactly is tied up?

                  full sanctions package

                  - what is this package? Have you seen him somewhere? And now a partial package? What's in the "complete package"?

                  To introduce a full package now is to get a refinery stop in the States and Europe.

                  - the wrong premise, the Russian Federation is now being driven out of the oil market and no one is afraid of stopping, there are giant suppliers, Saudi Arabia and America, there are also Canada and Mexico, Iraq, there are many who have oil, nothing bad will happen.

                    Keep your hand on the pulse. States and Europe refuse to supply Saudi oil. And India to boot. It is easier for the states because shale oil is close in composition to Arbask light.

                    Many countries in Europe and the United States have refused to buy oil from Saudi Arabia because there is nowhere to store it. The kingdom is finding it difficult to find new buyers of "black gold". The newspaper The Wall Street Journal writes about it.

                        What's the difference? Do you know the difference in oil grades? States sold their light oil and bought Venezuelan heavy. Who will they sell it to now? Or the Saudis? Therefore, the storage facilities are also crowded. There is no one to sell. Texas freaking companies offered oil at a price of $ 5 per barrel. Could not sell.
                        So who will the States buy heavy grades of oil from?

                        Finally. They have long been buying Russian oil. 21 million barrels last year alone. Canadian oil is heavy, but its cost is under $ 60 and production is curtailed.
                        The question remains - from whom will the States buy oil for their refineries?

                    And last year, Rosneft's sales in the United States grew 3,1 times, compared to 2018. This is just Urals and fuel oil.
                    And Canadian oil is not very transportable and has a high cost, because mined in bitumen sands. And that Canadian oil, which is not produced in bitumen sands, is light oil. The United States and its own have at least such oil.

            US Rosneft will not be able to drive out. Only Venezuela, Iran and Russia have heavy oil.
            There is it in Canada, but it is already very viscous, low-transportable and with high cost. And the 12 largest refineries on the Gulf of Mexico need heavy oil. And diesel fuel (as well as fuel oil and bitumen for asphalt) is obtained only from heavy oil. It will not be easy for the states now, they just do not have enough interruptions with the diesel engine.

      I'm not afraid to make a mistake. And you can talk

      nationalization will be made when the company is completely ruined.

      So it happens in the West. In Russia, this does not work. The company will be nationalized when the state decides what is needed. So far, there is no such political will.

        In Russia, this does not work.

        “You are just like through the looking glass.”
        Rosneft announced the cessation of operations in Venezuela. The nuance of the news is that the Russian government bought out all of Rosneft’s assets in this country. The press service of the RIA Novosti cabinet confirmed that the Russian government bought assets from Venezuela from Rosneft, and the company became the owner of the company. Apparently, we are talking about the classic nationalization of losses.

        Fully owned company

        - most likely, another "Baikalfinancegroup", whose task is simply to pay Rosneft the amount to compensate for what its talented managers managed to do there.
        And you say -

        So it happens in the West. In Russia, this does not work.

        Get back to reality.

          The reality is that you post old news. I have already seen this quote about five times.
          The reality is that Venezuelan oil will now be sold by the Russian government. Do you think that in the West I have not seen a company of three people (one of them is a secretary). And they carried the money in suitcases.
          So, Venezuelan oil will be sold by the Russian government and imposing sanctions against the "next" Baikalfinance group "will be fraught with sideways. And then, why did you decide? The official buyer is the Russian GOVERNMENT.

          Today, Rosneft entered into an agreement with a company 100% owned by the Government of the Russian Federation

          https://www.rosneft.ru/press/releases/item/200273/

          I saw the meaning of nationalization in this. Withdraw large Russian companies from sanctions. There will be continued sanctions - there will be nationalization of other enterprises. And the detachment from the dollar.

          Not in the subject. Unlinking the dollar is the second largest priority for the Russian Federation. Anyway, the forecast for a "big kidok" by the fall.

              Rosneft's net profit in accordance with international financial reporting standards (IFRS) increased by 2019% in 29 compared to the previous year and reached 708 billion rubles against 549 billion rubles in 2018. Interim dividends for the first half of 2019 amounted to RUB 15,34 per share, which is 5,2% higher than in the first half of 2018.

                    Mmm, how to explain to you, to make it easier. You have a company, you invested money in it, and it is under sanctions, i.e. no longer brings money, only expenses. And nobody will buy it from you, even drug dealers, they are not fools, it’s buying from you ... Ross budget, you received money that was lost due to sanctions. Everything is fine with you, but what about the company that now has the Ross budget? And it will be eliminated in a couple of months. Something like this.

                      This is not an insult. This is a quote from the movie "The Limit of Risk". By the way, I think it's a wonderful film, because I saw it all with my own eyes.
                      How do you explain that, having gained control of Venezuelan heavy oil, the States will receive leverage over Russia.
                      And how can I explain to you that sanctions are a non-economic term. Sanctions are an attempt to change the foreign policy of the state by the threat of impoverishment of the entire population. Akin to the carpet bombing of the Harris bomber.
                      And you still do not understand that sanctions are interference in the internal affairs of another state. This has nothing to do with economics. This is a pure policy.

As a result, they are demolished just as quickly, or they themselves fall off. There are also stubborn ones - the most repulsed, who, having run into a quick ban, immediately reincarnate and try to continue their garbage-subversive activities under a new nickname.

    According to Neukropny, if Yusa doesn’t react at all to Putin’s terrible trick, then this

    Russia's declaration of a full-blown economic war is completely beyond all laws and regulations.

    What happened before? Did the spools play?
    And what will the Russian Federation and the author do? Will they build another aluminum plant in USA? Or in the internet, the dollar rate will be banned from showing?

    And if YUS still introduces sanctions? Against "" a structure that is 100% owned by the Russian government. " What the RF will do is clear. And what will the dear Necropny do?

    - About some kind of nationalization ... some kind of attempts ...
    - What nationalization ??? - It was only the Bolsheviks in their time - they took and expropriated factories; newspapers, telegraphs and steamboats; banks, mines and bowels, etc .., and then all this was nationalized ... - That was the real nationalization ...
    - And today, no nationalization in Russia is simply impossible ... - This is equivalent to how if in fascist Germany they suddenly took all the Jews back from concentration camps and give away all their property, which was previously taken away ...
    - In Russia in the early 90s there was a "non-nationalization" ... - factories, factories, mines, subsoil of the country and everything else ... took and turned into bitcoins (yes, yes - exactly into bitcoins); those. gigantic material means were turned into "virtuality" and this "virtuality" has already been acquired for a ridiculous symbolic payment by hundreds of one and a half Russian non-people ... - And all this "virtuality" again became material and acquired cosmic value and unique value ... - That's all "de-nationalization" ...
    - Well, you can also explain on today's "Venezuelan example":
    - Rosneft ...

    NK Rosneft is a Russian oil and gas company controlled by the state-owned Rosneftegaz.

    ... - At the same time ... - there are specific Russian oligarchs behind NK Rosneft who, roughly speaking, own a controlling stake (roughly speaking) ... - and specific Russian oligarchs also stand behind Rosneftegaz , which also owns a controlling stake ... - And "Rosneftegaz" allegedly belongs (according to very, very "unverified data") ... already - "Rosimushchestvo" ... - And this is kind of like "the last instance" .. - That's all "nationalization" ... - And what kind of "nationalization" do you need ... - Here it is ... - there is already ... "nationalization" ... - Hahah ... - And which one do you need still need "nationalization" ??? - Believe it ... - or not ... anyway - we have arrived ... - This Federal Property Management Agency itself looks like a pathetic "scapegoat" ...
    - Well, as for the Venezuelan assets of Rosneft, it was not at all free of charge that some "state Russian company acquired them" or supposedly almost for nothing ... - A local fiscal speculative operation was carried out ... - And the oligarchs "standing" behind Rosneft ...- received their "legitimate solid profit" for the alleged "sale" of their assets ... - Well, and the next ... and so "in descending order" ... - accordingly - also ... - So, and who did I buy the assets ??? - Federal Property Management Agency, or what ??? - Yes, hardly ...
    - Most likely, these assets became "bitcoins" (for a while), until the price for them soars ... - And then the "owners" will immediately be found ...

    Given the stagnation in the world, restrictions on the part of the United States on the sale of oil by Rosneft for 12 months are quite possible ... and then we will see. Venezuela is just one of the concessions, we are waiting for where else the Russian Federation will yield. There is no need to talk about the genius of the steps of our leadership, they are entirely on a whim so as not to harm themselves, that is, the interests of "business" or friends of business.

    It so happened that on the same day that the state bought its toxic assets in Venezuela from Rosneft, an inconspicuous and unknown to anyone oil company Roszarubezhneft was established, which is wholly owned by the state. With a solid registered capital of 322 billion rubles. Its leader was a man who had a job in Angola in his biography just at the same time period when the current head of Rosneft Sechin worked there.
