The Americans will see attack on Saudi oil as an attack on them

-The Americans have always blamed Iran for sustaining the Yemen conflict and in a delicate region, this attack is very dangerous.

One of the two oil facilities struck in the early hours of Saturday morning was recently described by one industry expert as the the Achilles Heel of the Saudi oil industry.

Its size and production capacity makes it a critical part of the global oil supply industry.

It’s not yet clear how much damage was caused to the two plants or for how long production will be impacted, but the Saudi oil minister confirmed overnight a temporary loss of 5.7 million barrels per day of production because of the attacks.

For context, Saudi Arabia pumped 9.8 million barrels per day in August.

The Abqaiq plant was the target of a failed al Qaeda attack in 2006. Since then it has been heavily fortified but is still vulnerable from the air, especially from drones which can bypass air defence systems.

In terms of the impact on the global market and oil supply: well, short term there may be a problem which will become clear when the markets open on Monday morning.

But longer term the gap will probably be bridged by increasing production elsewhere and by releasing reserves into the market.

The much bigger concern now is the geopolitical fallout and the consequence for regional security.

The US government is in no doubt that the Saudi drone attacks were the work of Iran.

The operation was claimed by the Yemeni Houthi rebel group but they are known to get weapons and technology from their main backer, Iran, who are suspected by other nations to use relatively low-tech ‘attack drones’ as weapons.

With cheap new technologies, small attack or ‘kamikaze’ drones are proving to be disproportionately effective when successful.

.

Two weeks ago, Israel carried out what they said was a preemptive strike on fighters they said were linked to Iran’s elite Quds Force who were preparing to launch a drone from Syria (where Iran now has a strong foothold) to attack Israel.

.

.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Tehran had launched an “unprecedented attack on the world’s oil supply”, adding that there was “no evidence that the drones were launched from Yemen”.

It’s true that, geographically, the two oil refineries are closer to Iran and Iraq (where Iran has a foothold) than to Yemen

Explosión nuclear en Rusia cerca del Mar de Barents

mexicodigital.news

MOSCÚ (Reuters) – La agencia nuclear estatal Rosatom dijo el sábado que cinco de sus empleados murieron en un accidente durante pruebas realizadas en una instalación militar en el norte de Rusia.

El accidente Ocurrió durante el soporte técnico y de ingeniería en las fuentes de energía isotópica de un sistema de propulsión líquida, dijo Rosatom en un comunicado.

La declaración no daba detalles de las fuentes de energía isotópica. Rosatom, contactado por Reuters, se negó a clarificar el tema.

Al preguntársele si se había producido una liberación de radiación como resultado del incidente, una portavoz dijo que Rosatom no tenía nada que informar, además de las declaraciones publicadas anteriormente por el Ministerio de Defensa y las autoridades regionales.

Otros tres miembros del personal sufrieron lesiones, incluidas quemaduras, y recibían tratamiento médico en instalaciones especializadas, según el informe.

Las autoridades rusas habían dicho anteriormente que dos personas habían muerto en el incidente y que una ciudad cercana había informado de un aumento de los niveles de radiación cuando un motor de cohete de propulsor líquido estalló el jueves en un lugar de pruebas en la región de Arkhangelsk.
