Oil prices: Saudi Arabia will not be saved even $ 80 per barrel


The oil industry in Saudi Arabia is experiencing considerable problems due to low prices for raw materials, the Pakistani newspaper The Nation (nation.com.pk) writes.


So, the United States, Europe and even India are already refusing to buy Saudi oil, including at its present value. The reason is simple: not enough storage space.

At the same time, Russia was able to partially repel losses in the European direction by deliveries to China, which began to recover from the epidemic.

Riyadh has the prospect of becoming a “pure debtor" in the near future, and even oil prices above $ 80 per barrel will not help out the monarchy.

Earlier this week, Bloomberg warned that declining oil revenues could lead to an “unthinkable balance of payments crisis” for Riyadh and put an end to many years policy countries to peg their currency, rial, to the US dollar

- reported in the text of the Pakistani edition.

At the same time, the United States can put pressure on Saudi Arabia to return prices to a level acceptable to the American shale industry.

At the same time, Moody's expects stabilization of world prices for black gold before the end of 2020 at the level of 40-55 dollars per barrel, and in 2021 - up to 50-55 dollars per barrel against the background of renewed growth in the world economics.

    That’s how it is ... Just don’t forget that the gold reserves of the Saudis are over 500 billion with a population of less than 40 million people.

    - It is strange ... - how is it that Russia "managed to partially recapture losses in the European direction by deliveries to China" ??? - Beyond the agreed volumes, or something, Russia began to supply China ??? - How is this ??? - After all, China agreed to slow down the agreed volumes, supporting American sanctions against Russia ...

      It's simple.

      ... recapture European losses by deliveries to China.

      A case of so-called lies. In the Chinese direction, only losses and their sizes are classified.

    So, the United States, Europe and even India are already refusing to buy Saudi oil, including at its present value. The reason is simple: not enough storage space.

    In addition, oil consumption is falling and not only from them, Japan and South Korea are also on this list. Russia is easier in this regard, China began to recover and replenishes its reserves, in March 1,6 million tons.

    As for the Saudis, the budget for the year 2020 has a deficit of 44 billion euros; to eliminate the deficit, a price of $ 80 is needed and they have been waiting for it for more than 5 years. This is the opinion of the French, and not "Kremlin propaganda."

    A spokesman for Russian President Dmitry Peskov challenged the words of US President Donald Trump that his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, had been asking for the lifting of sanctions over the past two years. It is reported by TASS.

    This is not so, a Kremlin spokesman said in response to a question about whether Trump’s words are true.

    I wonder what is true and what is not?

    The fact that both parties do not deny is that the telephone conversation took place. Both sides confirm that two issues were discussed: the fight against coronavirus and the stability of energy markets. There is information that the Saudis agreed to reduce production. Today I cut for half a day about Rosneft. Two events have occurred. Congress refused to finance strategic oil purchases, and Rosneft's Venezuelan assets were transferred to the Russian government.

    The OPEC + deal does not make sense if the States are not included in it. Reduced production should be signed by all parties: the Saudis, Russia and the United States. The rest will simply be forced. Their voices and Wishlist will not be counted.
    Trump will not be able to lift the sanctions. It is simply not in his power. But he is simply obliged to go to the OPEC + 2.0 agreement. He has no way out.

    PS Cherry on the cake. They talked so much about how wonderful it is that ordinary Americans pour in cheap gasoline, but it turns out that now they want expensive gasoline. I don’t remember where the phrase came from. It seems from A. Beck "Volokolamsk highway." Baurzhan Momysh-uly: "there is watching, but no seeing!"

      - exactly the opposite.
      Apparently, the Russian leadership is beginning to slowly realize that it has overestimated its capabilities, and the fall in oil prices, which is now exacerbated by distinct threats from the United States to impose oil sanctions, is not what it was counting on when Minister Novak slammed the door in Vienna, leaving the OPEC plus meeting ahead of schedule.

      And how do you like this option, the Americans, the Saudis and someone else from the Gulf agree, and

      The rest will simply be forced. Their voices and Wishlist will not be counted.

      And whoever kicks there will get oil sanctions.

        Not an option. In any case, there is no such information yet. While there is information that Mnuchin, and now Trump, want to negotiate with Russia.

        There are many nuances and false information. Can anyone accurately determine the reserves of Saudi Arabia? Or its production facilities. The Saudis have been pumping oil for about 60 years. And the "proven reserves" are only growing.

        In the early 1970s, the four companies that were part of ARAMCO - Exxon, Chevron, Texaco and Mobile - estimated the potential field in Gavar at 60 billion barrels. Now the field has already produced 55 billion barrels and is due to dry out soon. However, ARAMCO, which since 1976 became known as the National Saudi Company, estimates the remaining resources at 125 billion barrels.

          Why not an option? You do not want to think that the Americans with the Saudis want to throw the Russian Federation out of the European market and take its place? But in vain. Look, even Belarus already dictates the price of oil to the Russian Federation and you agree, otherwise the Old Man will buy from the Saudis.
          One should always consider a bad option, fewer disappointments.

            I'm not interested in talking to you. Yesterday you showed your failure. And now they just confirmed it. Your phrase is

            You do not want to think that the Americans with the Saudis want to throw the Russian Federation out of the European market and take its place?

            - says that you didn’t understand anything. Again. Russia did not sign the OPEC + deal just because the Americans and Saudis were about to oust it from the European market.

            It will not work to exclude Russia from the oil deal. There are no levers of influence on its policy. This is not Nigeria or Iraq. All actions until today implied just such an option. We exclude Russia and act on our own. This option has failed. Open the news. Trump called Putin and offered to clean up the oil markets. Not the other way around.

              You don’t understand anything. Moreover, you have turned everything upside down; the Russian Federation will have to agree on much more difficult conditions.

              It will not work to exclude Russia from the oil deal. No leverage on her policies

              Grant, of course, Gd, but you apparently don’t understand that for the Americans to knock you out, just click your fingers. An example with a flow is an example.

        US GDP could collapse by 50%, while unemployment could soar to 30% in the second quarter due to measures to combat the coronavirus, said the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis James Bullard in an interview with Bloomberg last night.

          Maybe, of course it can, but what can we say about the Russian Federation with its frail resource economy and hidden total unemployment? I would think in your place what to do, how to save the Russian economy, not the American one. I don’t worry about the Americans, everything will be fine with them.

            I don’t worry about the Americans. When I have a printing press at home - I absolutely do not care what kind of crisis is in the yard.
            If you do not understand, then I worry about reformatting the world. This is completely useless to me. And the Americans too.
            I talked a lot and productively with the Americans. Nice guys. The only fad in all, without exception, is a reduction in consumption. The ABSOLUTELY unacceptable thing.

              Do you have a printing press at home and do you use it?

              worried about reformatting the world

              Not worth it. The world lives its own life, do not resist this. Stability has never led to anything good.

              reduction in consumption - ABSOLUTELY unacceptable thing

              This point applies to absolutely everyone. I bet that you, just like the Americans, do not want to lower the quality of your life, but only to improve it. Buy yourself a bigger apartment or at least a TV.
              I see that you have a habit of belittling Americans, Ukrainians, to stand out from their background, to show yourself how much better you are. It skips for you all the time.

                Again, something seemed to you. I make a difference between a person and a state. A person can be very pleasant in communication, and his state can be an enemy. I have friends and acquaintances around the world. But this does not mean that I am well disposed towards the states.
                Reducing consumption is a very important point. You can increase your personal consumption by relying on your resources. That is, working and making money. Or you can take a knife and go outside. And also raise your standard of living.
                This is a big topic and refers to the phase of capital accumulation. I do not think that you can convince me in this matter.

                    In the same way, I can say that you have a prejudice against the Russian Federation and worship of the West.
                    The simple truth. A person (in this case your opponent) can have a completely different point of view from your ideas about the world. And they did not form under the influence of a television or what graphomaniacs print. From personal life experience and reading more or less special literature.
                    I can explain why I answer you. If you leave your writings unanswered, it may give the false impression that I accept your answers. This is not true. Therefore, I have to answer. Another thing is that your answers are not specific. No numbers, data, links. And I can’t get anything useful from them. In addition to your personal conviction that the Russian Federation is byak, and the West is white and fluffy. My opinion is diametrically opposed.
                    Therefore, I am not interested in discussing with you. There is nothing concrete.

                      So everything, both the article and your answers, pay attention, see the log in your own eye.

                      My opinion is diametrically opposite

                      That is why there is something to discuss, otherwise it remains only to chew the same gum.

                        Again the same thing. Well, give me at least one quote or opinion. A good book by E. Reinert "How rich countries became rich and why poor countries remain poor." You won’t read Marx, probably. And he is studied in economic colleges of the West. The difference between the Soviet and Western economies is well described by Kara-Murza. So much has been written about oil that you no longer know what to read. Eric Laurent "Oil. Falsifications. Deception."
                        I do not see myths in myself. I read, if not special literature (after all, I'm not a child prodigy), but more or less close to science.
                        The Western model of capitalism is built on the Protestant morality "God loves the rich." And to achieve wealth, all methods are moral. Both the slave trade and the robbery of the colonies. And the destruction of people as well. Two world wars and hundreds of millions who died on the conscience of capitalism. This is so that no one will forget. And the current crisis is not a virus. The current crisis is a general crisis of capitalism. And there is a virus today - tomorrow it will not.
                        This can be argued ad infinitum. Convinced nothing to prove. I can change my point of view if you prove to me that I am wrong. But you will never change yours. Faith is incompatible with knowledge.

                        Two world wars and hundreds of millions who died on the conscience of capitalism

                  I have already seen how you perceive reality. Explicit Facts You manage to completely pervert. For example, that nobody invited Russia to negotiations. You generally live in the looking glass.

                  Regarding the Second World War, you are wrong ABSOLUTELY. And who was the arsonist, it’s useless to teach you. I will not even argue with the distortions of your story. She is completely FALSE. Specially allocated. Your ideas about the world and history are absolutely FALSE.

                  It is useless ... Stay in your distorted world. This is not even interesting.

                  No need to remove a bunch of Zionists from the site. It is necessary that people know the bastards.

    Saudi Arabia will not be saved.

      Americans and save.
      We have a pro-American government that suits them completely.
      And in all extractive industries in Russia, they have a share.
      Defending the Russian commodity industry, they will protect, among other things, the profits of American companies.

    Favorite news of Russians is the death of enemies! Not at home and in the city, but that somewhere far away and not mine! You need to think not about yourself, but about others.
