Emirates consider OPEC proposed deal unfair - Raw materials

The United Arab Emirates today considered the agreement proposed by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and their allies (OPEC +) “unfair,” WAM said in a statement.

“The Joint Ministerial Monitoring Committee (JMMC), unfortunately, has offered only one option, namely, to increase production, subject to the extension of the current contract, which will lead to an increase in the base volume of production. [de 2018], unfair for the United Arab Emirates, until December 2022 instead of April 2022, ”the government said.

In 2018, OPEC + began a policy of limiting production to maintain the price of oil, but with the sharp drop in demand recorded since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the organization and its allies have cut production even further, starting the latter. Can be progressively increased.

“The Emirates are willing to extend the agreement if necessary, but are asking that production targets be revised (upward) to ensure that it is fair to all parties,” the statement said.

On Friday, 23 OPEC + countries, led by Saudi Arabia and Russia, failed to reach a consensus on an increase in production quotas from August after the first deadlock in negotiations registered the day before.

Negotiations, which began on Thursday, continue on Monday, and this time non-traditional rivalry between Moscow and Riyadh makes it difficult to reach an agreement. Observers cited by France-Presse (AFP) say that in the event of a failure, the responsibility falls on the United Arab Emirates, which has renewed its request to revise its benchmark output, which serves as the basis for calculating its share.

Kazakhstan is preparing to supply oil to Azerbaijan instead of Russia - Oil

In the international oil market, a new adjustment of black gold routes may occur. Kazakhstan is preparing to export its oil via Azerbaijan’s largest oil pipeline to circumvent Russia’s threat to close the Black Sea port of Novorossiysk.

After a Russian court threatened to cut off an oil route through which Kazakhstan exports black gold to the world, Astana is preparing to ship its oil from Azerbaijan’s largest oil pipeline as early as September, sources close to the case say, citing Reuters.

For about two decades, Kazakh oil, which accounts for 1% of the world’s oil reserves, was transported through the CPC (Caspian Pipeline Consortium) pipeline, which was sent to the Russian port of Novorossiysk on the Black Sea, from where the oil was shipped. the rest of the world.

However, in July a Russian court threatened to shut down the CPC pipeline to Kazakhstan, prompting the Astana government and foreign companies operating in the country’s oil sector to reach out to other possible partners to ensure that if Russia ceases to act as a bridge between Kazakhstan’s oil and the world There may be other transportation options.

Thus, one of the sources assured Reuters that the Kazakh oil company Kazmunaigas (KMG) is negotiating with the Azerbaijani side to export 1.5 million tons of oil per year through the Azerbaijani pipeline, which transports raw materials to the port of Ceyhan. , Turkey. The contract is to be signed in August, and oil on this route is to start in September.

However, these agreements may not be enough to ensure that the world receives the same number of barrels of oil from Kazakhstan as before Russia’s possible production cuts.

According to the British agency, this partnership will bring 30,000 barrels of oil per day to countries buying Kazakh oil, which is very small compared to the 1.4 million barrels per day currently transported by CPC.

In addition, two other sources report that Astana is in talks to have another 3.5 million tons of crude oil annually exported via another pipeline to the port of Supsa in the Black Sea region from Georgia starting next year. In a Reuters report, KMG representatives declined to comment on the issue.

Kazakhstan can make a difference in the uncertain future

By seeking to sign these agreements, Kazakhstan can not only ensure its own economic viability, but also ensure that the imbalance between supply and demand for oil on the international market does not worsen.

Oil consumption is expected to rise to 2.1 million barrels a day this year, up 300,000 barrels from the previous forecast, according to International Energy Agency data released this Thursday.
