US, Russia and Oil Price Manipulation: The Real Reason OPEC President Was Arrested in London

 

OPEC President Diezani Alison-Madeuke was arrested in London on corruption charges....

 

The most important thing overlooked by many in this scandal is this: Diezani Alison-Madeuke was worried about low oil prices and was planning on calling an emergency meeting to discuss the OPEC strategy change. .... someone wants to pressure OPEC into keeping oil prices low. Who would that be?

 

It appears Alison-Madeuke represents the OPEC oligarchic clan that attempts to distance itself from the US influence, timidly rebelling against the US and conducting a somewhat more independent policy.

 

Such arrests serve as a reminder who is the boss. The message is not so much for the person being arrested, but for others: fall in line or you are next.

 

Someone is manipulating the market and holding oil prices down artificially.

 

When the oil price drop began last year, it was complex. Part of it was the desire of Saudis and OPEC to stop ... the American shale oil industry. Another factor was ISIL oil dumping. Of course, Chinese economy slowdown ...Initially, hurting the Russian economy was a side effect and a pleasant bonus...

 

OPEC has exhausted its resources and the minds of some of its members have changed.

 

However .... the initiative was overtaken by the US/UK. ...

 

.... US managed to hijack the OPEC oil price manipulation.

 

Once the price manipulation is hijacked, all they have to do is: 1. keep it at a certain level; 2. keep those OPEC countries and execs, who start rebelling, in line.

....the latter is the real reason OPEC President Diezani Alison-Madeuke was arrested in London!

When the Saudis lowered their price of crude at the apparent direction of the Pentagon power structure in an attempt to create maximum financial stress to Putin and the Russian Federation, Putin.... reacted quite unexpectedly. He lowered his crude price even further. This turns out to have been a very crafty move.

.... it turned out that the Russian Federation is stable financially enough to handle this drop in the World price of crude....

This drastically lowered crude price has seriously stressed some of the largest Wall Street Banks to the max because of their inflated Oil Derivative contracts they have used to stay afloat.

These Banks have apparently countered this drastic drop in the price of crude by accessing revenues derived from British Petroleum and Exxon buying stolen crude from ISIS at a greatly reduced, deeply discounted prices and re-selling it at the much higher going World crude price. This appears to have provided a means for these large Wall Street Banks to keep their Crude Oil Derivative Contracts afloat.

Under American Law as well as International Law, this makes BP and Exxon Directors and officers quite vulnerable to legal action as well as major trans-national anti-terror measures that can be legally exercised directly against them personally if these reports are cross validated and pursued legally in US and International venues.

We have reports that Russian Federation Forces are now directly attacking ISIS Oil shipment tanker caravans of their stolen Syrian oil and directly attacking ISIL controlled oil facilities.

If this decimation of ISIS/ISIL crude oil shipments by the Russian Federation continues it is likely that such will be the straw that soon breaks the back of the Wall Street Oil Derivative contracts.

And once that occurs it is expected that the fall of the US Petro Dollar will also occur. And then the US Petro Dollar will cease to be used any further as the World’s Reserve Currency.

‘Commercial scale’ oil smuggling into Turkey becomes priority target of anti-ISIS strikes

 

Commercial-scale oil smuggling from Islamic State controlled territory into Turkey must be stopped, Putin said

 

“Vehicles, carrying oil, lined up in a chain going beyond the horizon,” said Putin, reminding the press that the scale of the issue was discussed at the G20 summit

 

The views resemble a “living oil pipe” stretched from ISIS and rebel controlled areas of Syria into Turkey, the Russian President stressed. “Day and night they are going to Turkey. Trucks always go there loaded, and back from there – empty.”

 

It is necessary to hit ISIS training centers, to hit those centers where this terrorist army is being trained,” Hollande said.

“But the main thing is to hit the sources of financing, which give [the terror group] life in the first place – first of all oil,” The French leader emphasized.

The most effective way, the French leader said is to target “trucks that transport oil,”transferring it to buyers on the black market, “thus giving ISIS uncontrolled amount of money.”

http://www.veteranstoday.com/2015/12/01/fsa-says-has-proof-of-isils-oil-deal-with-turkey/

 

The Free Syrian Army (FSA) announced that it has corroborative evidence to prove Turkish crude purchase from ISIL based on contracts. A senior FSA member responsible for information affairs told the Russian media that the group has received images of the contracts signed by Turkey to purchase Iraq and Syria’s oil resources from the ISIL.

.... President Vladimir Putin said that Ankara appears to be an accomplice of terrorists, as it is purchasing oil in regions of Syria captured by extremists, and he is on solid ground in saying so, the German newspaper Bild reported.

 

At the same time, Bild noted, Turkey is not the only state that is making dirty oil deals with the ISIL militants for its own profit. Smugglers supply Jordan and Kurdistan, in which black market trade is flourishing, with ISIL oil, Eckart Woertz, the senior analyst for Barcelona Centre for International Affairs, said.

ISIS™ Oil Continues to Flow to Israel While Turkish Stream Pipeline Deal Appears Dead

 

We now have several sources confirming (H/T AlanB) the earlier Financial Times report that showed over the past few months, Israel has purchased as much as 3/4 of it’s oil supplies from Iraqi Kurdistan, which is the central distributor of that stolen oil from Syria provided to them via all those tanker truck convoys run by what the US calls ISIS™....

..... the global deflationary crude supply glut is beginning to manifest itself in a flotilla of stationary supertankers, as millions of barrels of oil are simply stuck in the ocean as VLCCs wait to unload.

 

In the latest sign that the world is simply running out of capacity when it comes to coping with an inexorable supply of commodities,three diesel tankers en route from the Gulf to Europe did something rather odd on Wednesday: they stopped, turned around in the middle of the ocean, and headed back the way they came!

"At least three 37,000 tonne tankers - Vendome Street, Atlantic Star and Atlantic Titan - have made U-turns in the Atlantic ocean in recent days and are now heading back west," Reuters reported.....

here's my thought.

 

we've seen a lot of this "well profitability" talk over the years.

 

but those figures almost certainly includes depreciation on very large sunk capital costs.

 

in that case. these wells will not stop production even though they are making accounting losses.

 

because the accounting losses will be higher if they don't produce.

 

so yeah. very cheap oil seems likely for a while.

"The Oil Market Could Drown In Oversupply," IEA Warns

 

On Monday, we noted with some incredulity that North Dakota Sour - a high-sulfur grade of crude - was briefly going for -$0.50 at the Koch brothers' Flint Hills Resources refining arm.

That’s not a misprint. If you had yourself some North Dakota Sour, you’d have to pay a refinery to take it off your hands. Your product was worth less than nothing.

We use the past tense there because once Bloomberg broke the story, Flint Hills quickly replaced the negative number with a positive one - you can now get $1.50....

with crude having dipped below $30 (today’s rebound notwithstanding) the question on everyone’s mind is simply this: can oil continue to move lower? According to the IEA, the answer is “an emphatic yes.”

Big News : Russian Oil to be traded in Rubles

 

NEWS AND VIEWS FROM THE NEFARIUM JAN 14 2016

 

Russia is now the largest producer of Oil.

Why shouldn't it have a leading role in pricing it?

 

- Rather than an oil importing nation like the US

 

We won't see the full dramatic impact of this until oil is scarce and the dollar is weak.

People could be scrambling to get hold of Rubles to buy oil, making Russia stronger
