Russia has found new clients for its powerful oil and gas industry, which has been laying the groundwork for the first economic sanctions imposed on the West.
During the invasion of Ukraine, Russia repatriates Saudi Arabia as the main oil supplier to China.
Segon reports, Kremlin offers low-cost oil and gas supply to Beijingthat the permit to enter a market for the communists that can not be placed in the middle of the economic sanctions by the initiative initiated by Moscow.
Acudió también a India: before the invasion, 1% of Russian petroleum exports establish destinations destined for the Asian giant, averaging up to 18%.
This is because Russia has seen a surge in its oil and gas exports, the energy sector concerns being financially, among other things, the military exertion that represents the invasion of the United States.
Petroleum with discounts
Following China’s general administration, imports of Russian raw materials – including the Sumerian one that traversed the East Siberian-Pacific Ocean – an 8.42 million tonne tonn in the middle.
This represents an increase of 55% in comparison with the past tense, setting record levels in the middle of May.
Chinese companies like Sinopec and Zhenhua Oil have been increasing their crude purchases in the latest months.
The companies recycle large discounts by part of Russia, thanks to which the comparators in Europe and the EU.UU. commenzaron to rechazar el petroleum and gas rusos a raz de la invasion.
Saudi Arabia is currently the second largest oil producer in China, with 7.82 million tonnes.
But Russia is not the only country with sanctions such as China importing oil: since the data was released today, Beijing has sold 260,000 tonnes of crude to Iran in the past, while this is the type from December
Following a report published by the Center for Energy and Aircraft Investigation (CREA) in Russia, the Russian government announced the release of a statement on its use of hydrocarbon vents from the imposition of sanctions.
As an embargo, the advised report that Moscow has found legal agurates to continue exporting.
One of the series is the export of petroleum to third countries, such as India, for refining, and in order to send a refined product to the European countries.
“The report shows that more Russian oil is being exported to India for refining and that much of this refined oil is being found on the market in European markets,” said the BBC’s Theo Legget.
“Given that Moscow is searching for new cars and Russian oil passing through the oil and gas boats, most of them are owned by European companies.”
“In order for the pressure on Russia to be effective, we need to address issues such as these.”
The European dilemma
The European Union is the main client of Russian oil and gas.
It is estimated that US $ 59,000 million of the US $ 97,000 million that Russia receives in energy exports during the first 100 days of the war in Ukraine coming from the EU.
However, it is impossible to read an agreement to completely prevent the purchase of hydrocarbons in Russia.
The EU plan imposes a prohibition on imports of Russian petroleum products that are sold by you before your term, reducing imports by more than 60%.
Además, in mid-March, the European Union compromised to reduce Russian gas imports to the third of a year.
By the way, the EE.UU decrees a total prohibition on oil, gas and carbon offsets proven by Russia, and it is hoped that the United Kingdom will have the final mismatch before 2022.
¿What can I do?
“With the precision of the fuels by the clouds”, says the BBC global negotiator Dharshini David, “not only the conductors which can be pointed at a certain point”.
David explicitly stated that India and China had a good idea of the current situation in Russia, advising that, in the wake of the European sanctions and the transition to other providers, the current Russian exporter should only keep pace.
“Russia’s oil boom has increased dramatically, and is intensifying in the midst of other alternative energy sources.”
