The media learned about Russia's intention to sharply reduce oil exports


In February, the Russian authorities plan to reduce oil sales to Europe to their lowest levels in the last three months. Bloomberg writes about the reasons for Russia's sharp decline in oil exports through western ports.


Exports of "black gold" Urals brand will fall in the third month of winter by almost 20 percent. According to Bloomberg, the dropped out raw material volumes will be directed to the domestic Russian market to stabilize the wholesale prices for motor fuel that have grown to the level of 2008. Last week, the Russian energy department announced that oil companies should increase domestic energy reserves in preparation for the spring season of high fuel demand due to the start of agricultural work.

It is planned to ship 1,13 million barrels of oil daily to European consumers from two ports in the Baltic and one in the Black Sea in February. In January, these figures were 250 thousand barrels per day more.

A decrease in the export of Urals will make it possible to reduce prices for this brand of oil, which equaled Brent on world exchanges. The beginning of 2021 was marked by a deterioration in the situation on the Russian fuel market, where oil rose in price while the ruble was weak, which led to an increase in wholesale fuel prices - this could undermine the Russian government's plans to keep retail prices within the expected inflationary limits.

      And who will buy it, recycled, then?
      And if he does, then at such a price, the processing will be unprofitable.
      In fact, the West knows how to count money.
      And they are good at it.

        In some cases, oil refining, as a key factor in the development of the chemical industry, science and related industries, leads to wars. But now we need to score on all those who say “sell” and start deep processing. Russia is not Libya, not Iraq, not Venezuela. It's time not to offer raw materials, but to offer ready-made products, which is getting in our way.

          You can start.
          But where to sell it?
          Who?
          No one needs it, reworked.
          We need (for now) raw. So it must be sold while they are buying.
          Seize the moment.
          Since they will not buy for long.

          And how is it so different from them?
          Especially nothing.
          A third world country, a raw material appendage of the West.

          No, the world is not an institution for noble maidens.
          And the peoples are not brothers to each other, but competitors on this planet. For the feed base.
          Losers in this world, no, they are not cut out (now), they are assimilated.
          How the ancient Romans, ancient Egyptians and other Khazars were assimilated.
          But the Khazars, the Lithuanians (not to be confused with the Lithuanians) were assimilated. And VKLitovsky, this is a very recent past. Several centuries ago.

      There are oil refineries in Europe. Their owners are interested in loading these businesses. If they are idle, then this is a loss. Where to buy gasoline is a bit of a monopoly market for a gas station network and a bit of politics.
      All this leads to the fact that there are prerequisites for the purchase of raw materials - oil in the first place, the purchase of fuels and lubricants on the foreign market just to get the missing volumes.

      You are strange. All niches are already occupied and no one will let us into Europe with gasoline and oils. Although if you dump at a loss, you can squeeze in, but not for long.

    A new word in marketing! A decrease in the supply of a product on the market, it turns out, leads to a decrease in the price of this product!
    In fact, the rise in the price of Urals was caused by sanctions against heavy oil suppliers. The supply went down - the price went up. What suggests that an additional decrease in the supply of a product will lower the price of that product?

      Are the Saudis opening champagne? Or rather, taking into account the local specifics, hookahs are kindled, thrown into water or whatever is accepted by them ... What is the reason?
      Can you tell me the volume of Urals oil production in Saudi Arabia?

          Thanks for the detailed answer. yes Probably they were looking for ... preparing ... True, the question was somewhat about something else ...
          It’s not just the name, but rather the properties of the oil. The Saudis do not produce oil close in composition to Urals, they have light grades. Refining their oil at factories "sharpened" for Urals is simply impossible. So I was hoping to find out why the Saudis are happy?

            What is difficult, what is easier, and what is not possible. I would say so. Each case is specific. Here you can also add logistics. You can't be as categorical as you. It needs to be rebuilt.
            But there is no holy place. Belarusians took American oil and somehow boiled it. But the Russian oil poisoned with chlorine spoiled the equipment.

              Truth? Can you imagine how much money and time it will take? I'll tell you a secret, the Americans buy Russian oil precisely because it is difficult to find another for their refineries, they are "sharpened" for Venezuelan oil. so the choice is not great, either with Maduro in the gums, or oil from Putin laughing But Europe is a different matter, no match for the poor Americans, everything will be redone overnight regardless of costs.

              But there is no holy place. Belarusians took American oil and somehow boiled it. But the Russian oil poisoned with chlorine spoiled the equipment.

    - Well, as you would expect ...
    - Personally, I, not so long ago, in the subject of January 14, 2021:

    Saudi Arabia surrenders in oil confrontation with Russia

    - - already wrote that:

    - This is Russia's lowest production cost ... of oil ??? - Taking into account the "correction for the exchange rate" ??? - And how is Russia suddenly honored to "correct the currency" ???
    - Isn’t it because last year she shipped a colossal amount of Russian gold to Great Britain ??? - This is the "correction" ... - The Saudis turned out to be clearly smarter in this aspect ... - They simply allowed Russia to sell their oil at a price below the cost of producing this oil ... - and even squander their Russian gold ... - in order to to somehow save the face of a global hydrocarbon producer ... and keep the same dollar rate ... - for the entire world community (and for the same Saudis ... - including) ... -Hahah ...
    - Or maybe Russia will just start trading its oil at the price of a world ounce of gold ... - It's just absurd to tie directly the cost of a barrel of oil to the cost of an ounce of gold ... - Maybe there will be crazy states in the world; who will "buy" oil from Russia like that ... -Hahah ...
    - Yes, there are no such ... - China does buy from Russia for its candy wrappers-yuan; and even then not all ... -And more and more tends to sell his Chinese junk on barter ...

    - The Saudis easily and simply "provided" to Russia at the expense of Russian gold "to support the entire world dollar economy" ... - And Russia easily and simply fell for it ... - The result was not slow to affect ... - Then what ???
    - And then ... - the same thing begins to happen with Gazprom's Russian gas ... - Personally, I'm in the subject of January 27, 2021:

    Why Gazprom is emptying its storage facilities in Europe

    - already wrote about Gazprom's attempts; those who want to illiterately "cut money off in an easy way" ... - Only now I had to take my gas already supplied (over-sized) to Europe ... - take it back ...
    - All these are links of one illiterate economic chain ... - a chain cast from Russian folk gold ...
    - And what's next, NOVATEK will throw out ... - Just fear takes ... how you think ... - that this swindler and swindler can "nahimichit" ... -This will cost Russia the worst ...

    Europe is made to feel that sometimes dreams come true. They want it without Russian gas, they have cut supplies, they want it without Russian oil, they also cut it. There is time to think about whether they are dreaming, if necessary, adjust the wish list. In the meantime, prices go up a little, for sure it's nice in the current conditions, it stimulates thought processes.
    According to the results of the difficult 2020, the industrial production index in Russia as a whole is 2,9%, manufacturing + 0,3%. Gasoline production - 8,5%, diesel fuel - 1,8%. Oil will come in handy at home, production needs to be increased, and let Europe put fans on the hills.

        Oh, come on. Don't be jealous. What does the ruble exchange rate have to do with oil sales in Europe?
        Today the dollar rate is 75,70, the euro rate is 91,85. Let's watch how it changes. What are your predictions for next week?
