Texas oil workers start stopping oil production


The American company Texland Petroleum preserved, until the beginning of May 2020, all of its 1211 wells in Texas, which produce 7 thousand barrels of oil per day and completely stopped production due to lack of demand. This was reported to the newspaper The Wall Street Journal by company director Jim Wilkes.


We have never done this before. We always managed to sell oil even at a bad price.

- said Wilks.

Wilkes noted that the company has now applied to the Texas Railroad Commission (RCC) for permission to receive financial assistance in support of small and medium-sized enterprises affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The company needs money to pay salaries to all its 73 employees.

However, not all US oil companies can temporarily stop oil production. Since the US Department of Energy is already negotiating with nine such companies about storing their 23 million barrels of oil in storage at the US Strategic Petroleum Reserve.

At the same time, Chevron, ExxonMobil and Continental resources announced a 20-30% reduction in oil production. At the same time, the RCC regulator is already considering the appeal of several companies and conducting hearings.

Earlier, RCC spokesman Ryan Seatton said that under the law, excessive oil production can be considered a violation and should be regulated. Therefore, the regulator is in favor of reducing production.

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a drop in global oil demand and a serious drop in prices. After which the countries began to agree on a reduction in oil production.

I must add that before this, the American company Whiting Petroleum, engaged in the development of oil fields in North Dakota, filed a bankruptcy protection application. We remind you that from May 1, 2020 will begin a new OPEC + deal is in effect and some time in the world it will be extracted by almost 10 million barrels of oil per day less. This will help relieve overflowing storages and normalize the situation on the world market.

          Мне весело! Бензин 93 (самый-самый, есть 87,89) стоит $2.30 за 4 литра. А пару месяцев назад $2.90 - $3.10. А самый дешёвый (87) сейчас стоит $1.70 за 4 литра.

            Have fun on health, take a moment. yes
            Что касается цен, пересчитал, получается - 93-ий на наши деньги стоит 42 рубля за литр, у нас 92-ой стоит 44 рубля за литр.

            https://admhmansy.ru/benz-price/

            The difference is small, but taxes are included in our price. The most expensive AI-100 for 52 rubles per liter can be poured, $ 2,84 for 4 liters in your opinion. hi

              And you did not compare salaries in dollars? Usually all propagandists, starting from the Soviet ones, for some reason forget to do this?

    Explain if there are people close to oil production here, how can this be - "all of its 1211 wells in Texas that produce 7 barrels of oil per day." It turns out that one well produces 5,78 barrels of oil per day?

      The author, you see, got the numbers wrong, even in Russia debits below 3 tons / day (22 bar / day) are considered unprofitable.

    7 thousand are produced by one well; they have about 3 million per year.

    ..preserved, until beginning of May 2020..

    - So what? No one else was expecting. But in other countries do not preserve? Only here they don’t really like to mention it?

    But they wrote on VO, gasoline fell in price in USA. And it will get cheaper.
    Something Neukropny about our gasoline did not have time to write anything joyful. Waiting for.

    I do not quite understand why you are happy? And what is the contradiction with what I wrote about?
    They temporarily reduced production, then they will increase again. There are no restrictions on quotas in the United States. In Russia, Russia has reduced production by volumes 5 times more than the United States. Why are you happy?

      This is unlikely to build up. The growth of unemployment in the USA has just begun (although it has already reached records, more than 6 million applications for the labor exchange, in my opinion, in 2 weeks). Very quickly disappear, like a class, a layer of people who, for large salaries, were engaged in garbage. Sales volumes of live oil are 20 times less (in terms of money) of sales volumes of futures and other derivatives. But someone issued these papers, traded. And all this went to the vaunted US GDP. Very soon, this GDP will look like my cat, Dusya, after she is washed. Only the difference will be much greater and without prospects again to fluff. In other papers, the difference is even greater. I saw data that the volume of real sales per year of real goods and services is $ 130-140 billion, and the papers wrapped in them are 2 quadrillion.
      This can be seen, at least for the same oil. In the United States, almost all oil goes to domestic consumption, 83%. For export - 17%. Moreover, oil in GDP is 1%, and in export - 12,5%.
      А люди, которые занимались выпуском и продажей/перепродажей этой макулатуры, оформлением кредитов населению (которые давно превратились в пузырь и скоро этот пузырь громко лопнет), получали хорошие зарплаты. И это - миллионы рабочих мест. А сколько людей вокруг них кормились? Те, кто кормил их, в ресторанах и через дорогие магазины, кто делал и продавал им дорогие машины, заправлял их, обслуживал и ремонтировал. Строил им дома, организовывал красивый отдых в других странах (вообще, турбизнес, к которому мы все привыкли, на глазах умрёт). Производил и продавал дорогую бытовую технику.... Все эти люди тоже останутся без работы. И процесс этот только начался.
      I wrote here repeatedly (and was spat and zapomusnovy) that the United States and the countries with the largest trade turnover with the United States will be the worst. I repeat this one more time. It will be easier for us. Or maybe even the economy will rise. Like in the early 1930s.
      Farmers are already pouring milk into the sewers. Cry: "I can not turn off the cow, it is necessary to milk it." But soon they will "turn it off", they will slaughter and put the meat in the freezer, they will eat it, slowly. They will not go hungry. If unemployed guys with a spontaneous surplus surplus don’t come and don’t “requisition”. As in Austria and the USSR in the region of 1918 - 1920.
      So, on the roads of the United States there will be less cars than on the roads of the USSR (whoever didn’t see or remember, look at the old photos, funny). And the conservation of wells will become massive and drag on for decades.

    Yes, my articles are not for people like you. You need to explain something, it's like peas against the wall ...
    Without respect.
