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

Pemex, con superávit comercial.

En los primeros siete meses de este año, que coinciden con la actual administración gubernamental federal, Petróleos Mexicanos (Pemex) logró revertir su balanza comercial deficitaria, prevaleciente durante 2016, 2017 y 2018.

En el periodo enero-julio de 2019 la empresa productiva del Estado obtuvo un superávit acumulado de 569 millones de dólares, resultado de exportaciones totales por 15 mil 344 millones e importaciones por 14 mil 775 millones de dólares.

El superávit contrasta con el déficit registrado en dicho periodo de 2018, cuando se observó un desequilibrio acumulado de mil 782 millones de dólares.

En 2016 Pemex registró un resultado deficitario de 2 mil 369 millones de dólares, en 2017 de 3 mil 922 millones y en 2018 de 3,384 millones de pesos.
