Russia sends more and more oil tankers to the USA

The Americans are actively selling cheap Russian oil. This has not been observed for 9 years and is happening against the background of an armada of tankers from Saudi Arabia, anchored and bored off the US coast.

It should be noted that more and more tankers with this raw material are actually being sent from Russia to the United States. Between mid-May and mid-June 2020, at least 10 vessels from Russia should arrive in the United States, delivering about 9 million barrels of crude oil.

This can be explained by the fact that not so long ago the price of Urals brand oil fell below $ 10 per barrel. Then, according to traders, all May deliveries were sold out. As a result, the price of oil jumped and exceeded $ 30 per barrel.

According to marine monitoring services and navigation resources, on May 25-26, Indigo Sun and Blackcomb Spirit tankers left the oil terminal in the Russian port of Ust-Luga. June 16, they are due to arrive at the ports of New Orleans and Pilottown in the Gulf of Mexico. In front of them, the Sea Beech tanker set off for the United States, which is heading for Baton Rouge (near New Orleans).

It should be reminded that at present all oil storage facilities in the USA are overcrowded, and local “shale oil producers” have significantly reduced production. So even small (against the background of the total US market) oil supplies from Russia can add stress to the industry.

    But Lukashenka "here" is bad. All "freebies" wants at world prices. And our citizens are still waiting for the price of gasoline to drop! On our power, already abusive words are not enough! And so you want to "impose"! What if it comes?

    For the author, all oil is the same. He is not familiar with the fact that oil produced in the USA (including shale) is EASY. And Urals, which tankers from Russia are most likely transporting, is heavy. It’s good to make gasoline and kerosene from light. And in order to receive diesel fuel, fuel oil, tar, heavy is needed. After the sanctions of Venezuela and Iran, the source of high-quality heavy oil was left alone - Russia. And it did not start now, as the author thinks. U.S. Rosneft sales volumes in 2019 increased by more than 2018 times compared to 3. And since sanctions to Venezuela and Iran have not gone anywhere, Rosneft’s sales in the United States will not fall, no matter what happens to oil prices.

    Yes, that's right, the last year they boasted all the time that in response to sanctions Russia was transporting more and more oil to USA.
    1) Sanctions
    2) Cheap
    3) Money doesn't smell
    4) Withdrawal of attendants through intermediaries.

    ... a stupid message to the filled tanks at refineries along the coast of the United States - they will continue to be occupied by unnecessary light oil - without Urals, plants do not take slurry from standing tankers, and their own, shale, is similar. The use of Urals and the most indecent fuel oil from Russia is a condition for unloading occupied capacities at oil refineries and tankers in the roads.
    The American business did not become tearfully auspicious; rude need compels !!!
