Moscow and Riyadh agree on oil without the USA


Moscow and Riyadh were able to agree on a significant reduction in oil production. This was reported by Reuters, citing its source in OPEC.


According to the informant, Russia and Saudi Arabia have already settled the main contradictions and agreed on the parameters of a new deal. According to him, we are talking about reducing oil production by 10-20 million barrels per day.

It should be noted that on the evening of April 9, 2020, the energy ministers of OPEC + member countries began a closed meeting online. The videoconference is organized on a platform provided by the National Information Center of Saudi Arabia with the participation of OPEC IT specialists. The cartel and independent exporters want to agree on a reduction in the extraction of raw materials to stabilize prices on the world market.

Before this, Reuters reported that Riyadh is ready to reduce oil production by 4 million barrels per day, and Russia is ready to reduce oil production by 2 million barrels per day. What reductions other countries are ready to make, has not been specified. At the same time, the head of the US Department of Energy Dan Bruyett said that Washington is not going to take part in this deal, because by the end of 2020, oil production in the United States will be reduced by about 2 million barrels per day due to overcrowded storage and other reasons.

We remind you that from April 1, 2020, the OPEC + agreement is no longer valid and countries can produce as much oil as they want. However, the COVID-19 pandemic made adjustments to this process.

It should be added that before this, on April 8, 2020, US President Donald Trump announced at a briefing that Washington is unlikely to cut oil production, as there has already been an “automatic” decline in some production volumes.

      You-the Russian liberals, everything is wrong, not your way:
      - Russia has withdrawn from the agreement with OPEC + - you don’t like it,
      - now Russia has agreed with OPEC + - you also don’t like it ...
      What Putin has not yet put all Russian liberals (Jews) in the Madhouse or the Gulag, like Stalin ... that’s where you belong ...

      It is not sad, but, unfortunately, you are right. On this occasion, an old joke is recalled:

      Information note from the FSB to Putin: "Lavrov at the US Embassy shook the excess."
      Putin calls Lavrov to the carpet and asks: “What are you talking about?”
      Lavrov: - Yes, Trump, an eccentric, said that they have a shaman in Alabama who revives the dead. And I told him - and we have an athlete who runs the plane ahead.
      Putin: - What if they demand to present an athlete?
      Lavrov: - Let the shaman present.
      Putin: - What if they present?
      Lavrov: - Present, so let Stalin revive.
      Putin: - What if it revives, then what?
      Lavrov: - Then, Vova, you will not only overtake the plane, but also the rocket!

    No specifics.
    Russia reduces production by 2 million barrels. Apparently, counting from production for the 1st quarter of 2020. This makes 11,3 - 2,0 = 9,3 million barrels
    Saudis reduce production by 4 million barrels. Apparently, counting from production on April 1, 2020. This makes 12,8 - 4,0 = 8,8 million barrels.
    Figures are approximate. If anyone has more precisely, I will be grateful.
    How much other OPEC countries will reduce is still unknown. States will not reduce anything at all. In general, it looks like a return to the situation at the beginning of March, when the extension of the OPEC + deal failed.
    Given the fact that the States were left overboard, this is a mutual defeat for Russia and KSA. The cost of 1 barrel is practically unchanged. There is little growth, but it is not significant. At the moment, Brent - $ 33,4; WTI - $ 25,2

      They reduce in fact. Tram simply can not afford to officially announce that he is involved in the transaction. It’s the same as going to the podium and saying Agent Donald completed the task. laughing
      Let’s wait for the exact data before drawing conclusions.

        Trump cannot say, since he is forbidden to conclude an agreement to reduce / increase American oil production under American laws.

      And if you read other reports, you would know that Trump said that the United States had already reduced the production of American oil from 13 million barrels by 2 million barrels, and by the end of this year they would reduce it to 6,6 million barrels per day due to market conditions.

      There is another important point voiced by some media - the deal will be ratified if Mexico will participate in it, and it is silent ... This is such a strange deal.

        The fact of the matter is that he is not silent, but rather, chatting too much. winked

        “I spoke with President Trump, and we agreed to reduce production by 100 thousand barrels per day. The USA promised to further reduce production by 250 thousand barrels per day to help Mexico, ”Mr. Obrador said at a press conference.

        https://www.kommersant.ru/doc/4319974

        And the deal is really muddy. Officially no one signs anything, the "gentlemen's agreement" and the exact numbers are not in a hurry to voice. yes

      It's early to talk about the States. April 14 will be the statements of regulators in Texas and Oklahoma, the main oil producing regions of the United States. There we will see whether they will reduce or not.

    If the economy in Russia is fully operational, then nothing will need to be reduced. By the way, it is better not to withdraw gold from the country. No time has come.

    We’ll wait until tomorrow, otherwise these “informants” do not inspire confidence. What essentially did he say? Never mind. He voiced “Wishlist”, the conversation was about a reduction of 10-20 million, and he is talking about them. Who cuts how much - not a word.

    Well yes. "Resource" once also wrote that Russia was leaving the Chinese market, but it turned out that the Saudis left. And Putin is starting to build the Power of Siberia-2. So, no one knows who has agreed on what, but everyone is already writing.

      What kind of “help” can there be in general during a crisis? While I see the defeat of the Saudis. Rollback to 4 million was not supposed by anyone. Russian 2 million is also not buzzing. But shale workers are not yet enthusiastic. Oil on the exchanges did not react yesterday. Prices remained unchanged.
      The only bright spot is the decision to start production. Yesterday, several European countries decided to quarantine. The second quarter will use the accumulated reserves. Therefore, the price will remain low. From the 3rd quarter, an increase in oil prices is possible.
      And further. Those who are sure that “petrodollar” does not exist. The whole economy, indices, exchanges, ratings, everything revolves around the price of oil. Continue to say that “petrodollar” does not exist.

      I will say that you and your singers, and others, are degrading at an accelerated pace. You quoted me yourself, in the article there is not a word of specificity

      the conversation was about a reduction of 10-20 million, that's what he says about them. Who cuts how much - not a word.

      On the basis of what you made a conclusion about "peeromog" - it is not clear. We are still waiting for official information and only then draw conclusions. In the meantime, listen to what people say:

      Excuse me for your curiosity, where did you get the data on the 2 billion reduction? Why not 200 dohrelions? I understand that arithmetic is not yours, but even if you consider that you cannot distinguish between a million and a billion. Where did they get the number 2?

      This fully applies to you. lol Vision does not interfere. Do you know what the price of oil will be or the duration of the contract? Why do not they immediately increase production? What is in the way?

    Moscow and Riyadh agree on oil without the USA

    - Personally, even before my "banning" I wrote .. that ... that - today all sorts of treaties between Russia and Saud. Arabia (even with the USA - even without the USA) for oil ... is a loss for Russia ...
    - The principle itself ... - "leaving go away" speaks for itself ... - Russia has left the Guardian +; slammed the door ... - and look for your own happiness independently and independently ... - for this, Russia had trump points ... - They still have ... - Personally, I already wrote about some of them:
    - Russia today does not have "excess oil" ... - Everyone has excess oil (among the Saudis, the USA, etc.) - but Russia does not have that ... - But Russia itself does not want (our oligarchs do not want ) ...- Rosneft does not want ...- she needs to present everything on a silver platter and so that there is no risk at all, so that the Russian taxpayer (Rosneft) paid all the risks to her - "if something happens" ...
    - Russia today can ship all the "excess oil" to Venezuela ...- it will always come in handy there ... "pry" heavy Venezuelan oil with Russian oil ... -China would have done that for a long time ... -It just bought it today cheap Russian oil and would drive it to Venezuela ....- since Russia doesn’t do it itself ... -But today China is very afraid of the USA ...- no matter what happens (and China supported “oil sanctions” against Russia) ...
    - Today, Russia is simply wasting its valuable time for nothing ... - And is missing its sure winning chance ...
    “But as soon as Saud.” Arabia and the United States get a little "freaked out" .., then they will not forgive this missed chance of Russia; China will not forgive ... - Here they all will fall upon Russia ... - there will be no "pity" here ...

        - Of course they are afraid ...- I’m talking about this personally ... - Therefore, Russia is missing out on its right chance ... - Today, Russia has no problems with the price of oil ... - on the contrary ...- it is much more profitable today to supply Venezuela with "cheap oil" ... - after all, Russia will have to supply its oil to Venezuela anyway. And at a more expensive price ...
        - Russia today could generally ...- start buying oil at a very bargain price from Saudi Arabia itself ...- because today Russia is not bound by any “oil obligations” under the Trust +, and this will bring down the oil market ... - where it remained Saud. Arabia (and the USA) - there are no other competitors anymore ... And Russia could even begin to supply this Saudi oil to Venezuela ...
        - Today, Russia could quite realistically - legally make a revolution in the oil business ... - all the chances and trump cards are on hand ...
        - But very weak troechniks rule yesterday, yesterday’s small barges, which have remained at their former level ... - and they are completely unsuitable for a major world game ... - They simply cannot be seen ... - I was in Russia is 100 years old worthless weak prime minister ...- this is D.A. Medvedev ... - well, he was in plain sight and everyone knew ...- and everyone knew about him - how worthless he was ...
        - But the oligarchs are simply not visible ... - they are in the shade ... - but their abilities are approximately ... like ... like Medvedev's ... - And from here the legs grow ...
