Bloomberg emphasizes that we are talking about Urals brand oil, which is supplied through the American PADD 3 and PADD 1 terminals. Moreover, if in 2017 the volume of Russian oil supplies to the United States amounted to 1,58 million barrels, then in 2018, it was already delivered 7,52 million bar At the same time, American refineries frankly demand an increase in oil supplies from Russia by a factor of three compared to 2018.
This information is also confirmed by Russ Dellan, Managing Partner of Caracas Capital Market Investment Bank. He specified that the oil was delivered by thirteen tankers.
Ironically, Russians benefit from the collapse of Venezuela. One hostile sub-sanction country replaces another hostile sub-sanction country in supplies to the United States
- summed up Russ Dellan.
Bloomberg analysts note the objectivity of the sharp increase in oil supplies from Russia to the United States. The thing is that the United States has reduced oil exports from many oil-producing regions of the planet. But oil needs to be taken somewhere and these supplies should be stable, and suppliers reliable. In addition, oil suppliers from Venezuela and Iran found themselves under severe US sanctions. Moreover, the United States is making great efforts to ensure that oil from Venezuela and Iran does not enter the world market at all, before the arrival of "democracy" in these countries.
Given this, we can say with high confidence that the supply of Russian oil to the United States will grow even more. After all, the United States is not going to stop putting pressure on all those who still buy oil from Venezuela and Iran.
