There will be no winners in the oil war


There will be no winners in the new oil confrontation, writes Rachel Zimba, a senior fellow at the Center for New American Security, and her opinion is quoted by the British portal Middle East Eye.


Although, as noted in the text, countries such as Turkey, South Africa, China, and South Korea will indeed benefit from cheaper oil, the magnitude of global economic difficulties will block all possible benefits for them.

As for the oil-producing powers, the most vulnerable countries, according to the author, include Iraq, Algeria, Angola, Nigeria, Ecuador, Libya and Gabon. Although many of these countries have low production costs, it is highly desirable for their national budgets that the price of oil exceeds $ 100 per barrel. These countries also lack significant foreign exchange reserves.

In a much better position are the monarchies of the Persian Gulf, which have such reserves. But even there, far from everything is safe. According to the author, the weak links here are Oman and Bahrain, which have the largest debts. Saudi Arabia's debt and budget deficit are skyrocketing.

The Russian Federation, according to Ms. Zimba, also demonstrates stability. Protection economics from sanctions helped to reduce the dependence on foreign capital. Russia may not flourish, but it holds on, probably will continue to do so, despite the upcoming quarantine. The state can reduce a number of expenses, but various kinds of megaprojects are likely to remain in the government’s plans.

The expert predicts that the United States will ultimately return Saudi Arabia and Russia to the negotiating table. This will most likely happen in the second quarter of this year.

    If only they set the table and join the conversation themselves. winked
    There will really be no winners in this war, they will defend their interests and have already been brazen insolent boors.

        That is the whole point. yes Until now, they have pretended that negotiating is not a royal matter. They, celestials, they say. free market, and negotiation is the lot of mortals. This does not concern them. Once they negotiate with the Bedouins, then arrogance drops.

        So far, no If only the table is laid and yourself

        It’s too early to cover, everything will cool down. Let them first agree among themselves, then together they will lay the table faster. winked

        I regard this expression as completely incorrect. Mnuchin tried to negotiate with Russia in early March. And just two days ago, Trump is already directly with Putin. Or did Trump call Putin to inquire about his health?
        Your statement is in no way consistent with the real picture. And how do you discuss after that?

          It’s just that you don’t even need to try to discuss with him, just to lay out your facts, opinions, analytics - in your performance it’s just analytics, good and he has "all the time is always bad" - in short, so, so there will be no discussion - in my opinion.

          The Kremlin said in a telephone conversation on Sunday the presidents of Russia and the United States agreed on a meeting of energy ministers of both countries to discuss the situation on the world oil market. The White House representative used a more general wording - according to him, Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin agreed that it is important to stabilize the global energy market, but did not mention ministerial contacts.

          And this is called "the Russian Federation did not invite"?

            Reservation leaders are also invited to celebrate Independence Day.
            Negotiations should be beneficial to us, and not to the Americans, who before that were outside the scope of regulation.

              What is the benefit of negotiations for the Russian Federation? Preservation of the market and reasonable price of 45-50 dollars. Price States are also satisfied. Remain markets.
              If you remember, the Russian Federation did not agree to extend the OPEC + deal, due to the fact that the market in Europe is captured by shale. The task was to seat the States at the negotiating table. If the shales of America drop a couple of million barrels, then the task is completed. So your sarcasm about the "leaders of the reservation" is inappropriate.
              I am not a prophet, but if an agreement between the Russian Federation and the USA is reached, then we can still argue who exactly will be the "leader of the reservation." This is definitely not the Russian Federation. Most likely KSA.

                You did not pay much attention to the last phrase of the article that the USA WILL SEAT at the negotiating table of the SA and the Russian Federation. The author of the article does not think of any US participation in the negotiations. Only arbitration in their interests. The leaders of the obedient SA and the Russian Federation at the holiday of the American economy, under the guise of the wise zits chairman of the United States.

                  Anything can be written in an article. I express my opinion. States will have to reduce production as well as other countries. Why didn’t the Russian Federation extend the reduction agreement? Because the States continued to increase production. Now everything will go according to the Russian scenario. States will reduce production by a couple of million barrels (although there are nuances here too). Russia will also reduce by 500 thousand, as planned. And they will force KSA. They will return to their 9 million. Nigeria, Iraq and other Norway will take under a peak. I have already said that no one will ask them.
                  Trump, of course, writes himself this as a plus (he is the main one). Russia will remain silent, like a sphinx (its achieved well). KSA will declare that they won (the Russian Federation will go to reduction). So everything is in the winners. If this happens, it turns out that the Russian Federation acted correctly. And negotiations must go quickly. ASAP I think in the 2nd quarter. Although there is information about the month of June.

          The winner is either one who has the technology to withstand any dumping by competitors, or who has a supply of resources, or allies. The RF does not have any of this at all. And therefore there is nothing to trump.

            Gee gee gee. Of the three CA-USA-RF, Russia is the most self-sufficient country.
            Or do you think that the 3 million Americans who applied for unemployment benefits in one day come from the great economic power of the United States?

              In the sense? Will you live in bast shoes and skins? Everything else is imported.

              for unemployment benefits

              One day after the epidemic get a job. You. apparently did not understand, who pays the unemployed? And if you didn’t quit, then who will pay? This is a simple release of the burden from the employer. And you are probably pleased to think

              about the great economic power of the USA

                Dismissed ceased to be buyers and serviceable credit payers. And this ruins the very foundation of the debt pyramid that the United States stands on.
                As for bast shoes, take a look around - in Russia 90% - this is done on the spot. Brick, asphalt, metal, shoes, clothes, food, gasoline. Only the cheapest consumer goods in clothing markets are from China.

                  This is not the first and not the last crisis. The Americans are recovering quite quickly, don’t worry about them that way, everything will be fine.

                  As for the bast shoes

                  If you take a closer look, you will realize that none of the above has been done in the Russian Federation, only local raw materials, clay for bricks, gasoline and asphalt from oil. Everything is done either on imported equipment, or using any imported components. For example, toothpaste or soap contains an imported component, without which production is impossible. But this is normal, in the world now everything is done this way, everyone is doing something of their own and selling to others. No need to isolate yourself, this will lead to degradation.

                    Of course. Even in my life - the devil knows how many there were. Since the oil embargo of 1972. A year from 7 cents per gallon, gasoline went up to the dollar (in the US). We also survived cornization, perestroika, and democratization. In crises, the standard of living falls slightly, but in most cases it is not fatal. Both in Russia and in the USA. So leave the experience for the souls of the Indians (albeit in the shoes of Russian liberals).

                    No need to isolate yourself

                    No, the Indians must be either submissive or dead.
                    Therefore, we pretend to be Indians does not make much sense. Eat like the Iroquois.

                        You do not understand allegories and sarcasm? Then I explain:
                        The rebellious Indians were exterminated. See the Native American Wars wiki.
                        The submissive signed a peace agreement with the US government, and resettled in the desert.
                        Russian liberals call for submission, and taking into account the interests of the United States. Now it’s “not isolating”, cutting back on production and saving the US economy. The logic of a "peaceful" Indian. Just always remember where these “Indians” end up in.

                        So in those years it was accepted. When the Russians captured Siberia, didn’t they exterminate the local peoples? They also exterminated how.

                        Russian liberals call for humility

                        This is beyond reason.

      Nonsense, of course, is utter, but if you look at the problem from this angle, it turns out that there are citizens to whom it comes even slower. The Saudis believe that they can dictate terms, and the US is stubbornly trying to become a resource trader. It turns out that our affairs are not so bad, we think faster. After all, Russia is not trying to dictate terms, it offers to negotiate.

          In the market, an overabundance of oil is a fact. You can either negotiate or destroy competitors. The US tried to take the second path. As soon as they finally realize that they have reached an impasse, they will return to point No. 1.

      It's right. But in part. The final product has a great added value and therefore the manufacturer is always in the black. But the problem is that the final manufacturer is located in China. The United States has a service industry. It also has a lot of added value, but with the slightest breeze it is blown off first.
      As for the era of resources. When I was praised for 3D printers, no one could answer the question: from what material do these printers print the final product? From the air, or some real resources.
      The "post-industrial world" is in dire need of resources. And these resources must be or pumped out of the colonies. or select from competitors. Without resources, there is no "end producer". But the fact that the owner of the resources must produce the goods himself is, of course, true.

        Has anyone heard of the Minister of Geology of the USSR Yevgeny Kozlovsky? His open letter to the President of the Russian Federation D.A. Medvedev. This is an interesting document.

        I am naturally opposed to the prevailing opinion in the upper layers of the state that our fault is that Russia has a “raw material economy”. I think that this is a great advantage, a gift from above! But the ability to use this economy of easily earned (primarily oil) money for a breakthrough and technological improvement of the state is the task of the country's leadership. On this "donkey" is tested his ability to public administration and the level of professionalism! Is this not the main root of our troubles for twenty years ?!

        The former USSR Minister of Geology publicly refused the award from Medvedev.

      Only in subsistence farming. What can China, the manufacturer, dictate to the United States, the buyer, giving the final product not even for dollars - for debt obligations?
      In the world of overproduction of consumer goods, having your own resources is a guarantee of independence. Unless, of course, you are a liberal Papuan who believes in the holy dollar.

      They already exist, just some have not yet understood this. Smaller manufacturers have already lost, and some larger ones pretend that they are cutting pieces of the gas station economy into even smaller pieces.

              I have not noticed a price increase yet. You can not moan, but calmly in numbers, what and how much has risen in price?

                First moaning. Last week they called from dentistry and said that in connection with the fall of the ruble, a seal will cost 500 rubles more, like, all materials are imported.

                  MOSCOW, May 14 - RIA Novosti, Natalya Dembinskaya. The US Treasury is ready to expand the list of countries - currency manipulators, adding Russia there. As noted by Bloomberg, all defendants in the list are waiting for "certain market consequences." Why the ruble exchange rate is underestimated and what threats arise in connection with the accusations of the American financial department are in the material of RIA Novosti.

          Just air traders and are played by exchange rates. Soros made billions on this. Or do you think that Soros’s collapse of the British pound by 50% is because the British live in a useless country?
          Moreover, this collapse, offensive to the ordinary hamster, who hawks the Spanish Parmesan, turned out to be manna from heaven for metallurgists and power engineers of foggy Albion.

              Does Comrade Sechin spin trillions of rubles in the financial market?
              They are driven by American funds. They buy rubles, the ruble exchange rate is growing, at a certain point they begin to merge, when the costs have paid off, the balances are dumped, the ruble is falling, funds are stocked in rubles. And they are waiting for a new increase. This can be done up to 10-15% per year, 2 times more than for Russian bonds. And European and American bonds cannot be compared at all.

                To earn 10-15% per year, the rate fluctuation should be 15-20% minimum. Until March 2020, this was not observed. In my opinion, it is rather strange to deny the connection of the current fall of the ruble with the fall in oil prices.

    Let's just analyze the situation. There are contradictions between the Russian Federation and the USA. What lies on the surface is Ukraine, Syria, Venezuela, sanctions, SP-2 and oil prices. Added coronavirus.
    1. Ukraine. By and large, it is already worked out material and is of no interest to Trump. And for the USA too. There the questions are supervised by the IMF. This is a serious issue for Russia. But no one will give back. This is a fixed position and will remain so for a long time. Russia will not give up Crimea unambiguously. This is not even discussed.
    2. Russia will not surrender Syria. Too much is connected there. This is politics, and economics, and prestige. So also a dead end. It will be decided by the Syrian army with the support of the VKS. There are no common ground either.
    3. Venezuela. I already wrote. It is vital for the USA and the Russian Federation. Who controls Venezuela will win. The situation is balancing. Russia has made a bid for Maduro, but supporting it will be quite difficult. But in Venezuela, 50 billion (maybe more) of China's investments. So for the States this is also a big problem. I don’t dare to bet, 50 to 50.
    4. Sanctions. Trump or any other president is not able to cancel them. Congress will not support. So, this issue will need to be addressed pointwise. As entered pointwise, and will be removed pointwise. Russia voiced its point of view. If the sanctions are lifted from Rosneft, we can talk about something.
    5. SP-2. Negotiations Pompeo Lavrov. Also, the position of the United States is weak. European countries are interested in the gas pipeline and European money has been invested enough there.
    6. Oil prices. This is the moment where the positions of the parties are close. Both countries set oil prices at $ 45-50. Chances are high that they can agree. Affected will be Saudi Arabia. But nobody cares. So I think that there will be an agreement between the US-RF and KSA (if they understand that their minuscule did not pass).
    7. Coronavirus is a common problem and there are also common interests here. It is necessary to restart the global economy. But with a significantly lower level of consumption. The post-industrial world has shown its fragility.

        It's not about traps. On the likelihood of concluding any agreements. Did I write about winning positions? So, I don’t see what exactly the "trap" is.
        On the contrary, I see problems for the States. In 2016, I wrote that either war or America’s default could be the way out. For the United States, both options were winning. Hilary is war, Trump is default. While I see the movement to default America. But I repeat once again, default is not a failure. Trump survived several defaults and became a billionaire. He is an expert in this matter.
