Dozens of Saudi oil tankers can't get into the US


Saudi Arabia sent a whole fleet of oil tankers to the United States, but they were stuck at sea due to a sharp drop in oil demand caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. This is reported by the American agency Bloomberg.


It is noted that oil storage in the United States is full. Oil simply has nowhere to ship. In addition, another serious drop in US oil prices occurred on commodity exchanges.

On April 20, 2020, the price of WTI crude oil on the London ICE exchange fell below $ 15 per barrel. This happened for the first time since 1999. So how many tankers will stand at sea is unknown.



At the same time, monitoring resources that track the movement of tankers around the world specify that Saudi Arabia sent 40 such vessels to the United States. According to the estimates of the TankerTrackers portal, the mentioned tankers contain four times as much oil as the Saudis sent to the Americans in February 2020. In turn, the agency Refinitiv Energy believes that these tankers have three times more oil than in February. However, this is not important.

In one, analysts agree that the agreement reached to reduce oil production by OPEC + countries is not enough. At the same time, Saudi Arabia intends to sell 2020 thousand barrels of oil per day in the United States in April 600. How Riyadh will do this is not specified.

      Why not with Monaco? How does it not suit you?
      Do you like in Saudi Arabia? To do this, reduce the number of citizens. Then maybe it will work out. That's just how to share? Are you sure that as a result you will fall into the number of citizens? And then, you may have to retrain to migrant workers.

        What does Monaco have to do with it? Do they get something from minerals?

        I am sure. Are you sure that you yourself were born in the RSFSR? And Russian by nationality? And that you were not born not in the RSFSR? wink bully I am confident in myself. And you?

          I thought the standard of living interests. If based on oil production, what about Nigeria?

          I am sure. Are you sure that you yourself were born in the RSFSR? And Russian by nationality? I'm sure. And you?

          According to these signs, I’m suitable, except that I was born in the RSFSR. That's just a problem, what does nationality have to do with it? Do you consider yourself better than Tatar or Buryat? They, as in your design, will they process you or how? There is one more problem. On the territory of historical Russia with oil and gas is not very. no Do not believe? You can try to put a drill somewhere near Ryazan. yes Since it’s so divided, for example, we have Khanty and Mansi, we get their oil in the north of the Nenets, in the south of the Tatars with Bashkirs, Chechens and so on. What do you have to do with it?
          Here is such a layout. hi

            Here's a hi

            There is a very simple thing. The truth is called. It’s like a small hole punctured by a thin needle. In a stretched white sheet. Called life. And we strive for this truth. Well, each in its own way. Remember these my words. Well, and who gets to the truth .... So strive. I am not saying that I am urging there. I say to myself that I’m at least trying to get there. hi

          And who cares what nationality? For example, I was born in the USSR, but I am not Russian, but I consider myself much more Russian than you. Russian is not the one who has a “magic word” in the passport, but hatred for all Russian (like you!) Is spewing out with all the cells of his body, and one who even being outside of Russia feels a close connection with his homeland. Homeland, if you forgot, this is where you were born, where you took your first breath. Homeland, this is where you took your first steps, grew up, studied, and not where you get paid today for the nasty things you write here! You're not Russian.

      Why did you miss the position of Gazprom manager? Well, or Chubais? Gets red billion a year, drove a million guards with guards. In a year, of course, but it’s also robust.
      And if you solve world problems in the kitchen, you will only earn soup from your wife.

        This reproachful comment how to understand?

        drove a million guards. In year..

        negative I saw this Chubais very, very close. In Moscow. The beginning of zero. The guard gallantly shut off sharply (it worked correctly yes ) our unexpected rapprochement. He came out of the store elite men's clothing. I fled from Leontyevsky Lane towards the Kremlin (in a hurry) on a date! laughing

      Judging by your intellectual level, you are about 15. The world’s oil reserves will last about 50 years. So, you probably still have time to yell with a bang.

      It seems that it’s not written anywhere that these are their tankers. Could and rent. Although, why shouldn't they have 40 tankers, the country is not poor, for more than half a century it has been exporting oil.

    This makes me happy. There will be no unloading of tankers ... it will soon reach the prince that it is time to return to feed the camels. The manager does not work out of him ....

    Something draws today on auto quotes:

    boriz (boriz) March 16, 2020 23:15

    Russia and oil: why the current crisis is the best option
    The same Washington Post very specifically writes that in the oil confrontation between Moscow and Riyadh, the main victim is Washington. "
    Well, WP quickly began to quote me ...
    "Russia will replay in the" price war "of Saudis left without US support
    It seems that the oil war of the Russian Federation and KSA is the struggle of the Nanai boys. The main victim will be the United States.

    boriz (boriz) Yesterday, 19:47

    Given the above, as well as the words of the KSA that the Russian Federation - KSA is friendship forever and no disagreement, does it occur to anyone that these 40 tankers are a purely concrete run over to the USA?
    The Saudis still have nowhere to put their oil, they store it, including on tankers. So what's the difference to the Saudis, where they will hang out at sea. And constantly hanging over the American coast, these tankers will put pressure on quotes of "American" oil.

    No reproach. Everyone takes the place to which he could cross. No one will plant in a more profitable place.
    If you are not comfortable with your current life, see what is missing: education, a circle of acquaintances, or basic laziness.

      Deliveries of this cheap oil will eventually become a very unprofitable enterprise for the Saudis. I do not think that they will be enough for a long time in this situation !!!

    I suggest the 2nd time. Provide the Hussites in Yemen with drone drone, the Stingers captured in Syria from the Barmalei ....
    The price of a barrel of oil will please the budget of the Russian Federation, Iran, Libya, and the crisis will end.

    USA, Russia, Saudi Arabia, oil prices ... A drop in oil prices is a staged thing, the “Covid scourge” has not reduced the demand for oil in the economies of the main importing countries, but the “convenient” reason used for the reports of expert economic agencies, more - stock quotes. What, Americans began to drive less cars? Are American refineries stopping? - It’s just regular poker that bluffs everything at the same time, but to a different extent. You can still understand the impact of the fallen needs of China, but this is short-lived, and even in an article about this, no gu-gu. As for Russia, "self-isolation of all Russia" and not oil quotes will rather kill us: gasoline in Russia always grows in price, without reference to any coronaviruses and Saudis - and "people hawl".

    ... hey, dashing Chukchi writers, and you haven’t heard the case that the Saudis in Port Arthur (USA) have their own refinery with processing more than 600000 b / day? And the question is, why the hell does he need to roam around the United States and look for a place of unloading ??? Now with ready processing in the states there will be a light crush !!!!
