Oil Spikes, Stocks Dump As Van Rompuy Gives Green Light To Extend Russian Sanctions To Oil

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Curious why Brent just spiked by over 1% (and the S&P500 took a leg lower)? The reason is headlines from Reuters citing Europe's unelected dictator, Van Rompuy who has said that sanctions should include Oil technology. However, in a hilarious twist, the unellected muppet of Europe's insolvent banks, hopes to get his sanctions cake and snort Russia's gas too, adding that Europe's sanctions should exclude the gas sector.

  • LETTER FROM EU COUNCIL HEAD VAN ROMPUY TO MEMBER STATES SAYS RESTRICTIONS ON SUPPLYING TECHNOLOGY TO RUSSIA SHOULD INCLUDE OIL, BUT EXCLUDE GAS SECTOR-EU SOURCES

More from Reuters:

EU leaders seeking to agree sanctions against Russia over its actions in Ukraine are expected to include oil technology but exclude technology for Russia's all-important gas sector, EU sources said on Friday.

 

The scaling back of the EU's ambitions shows the difficulty of agreeing forceful sanctions against Russia without risking damage to the bloc's fragile economy.

 

Two sources quoted from an official letter sent to EU heads of government outlining "an emerging consensus on some key principles".

Here it appears that Europe's unelected leaders are somehow deluding themselves that if faced with escalating sanctions, Russia will not unilaterally cut off the gas to Europe.

It gets better. Reuters also added the following:

  • LETTER FROM EU COUNCIL HEAD VAN ROMPUY ASKS EU LEADERS TO DELEGATE AUTHORITY TO AGREE TO RUSSIA SANCTIONS TO AMBASSADORS, AVOIDING NEED FOR SUMMIT-EU DIPLOMAT

Why? So that when things really escalate out of hand, and Russia does half gas deliveries sending Europe into a triple-dip recession or outright depression, the population will demand scalps. At that point the unelected Van Rompuys can say: "hey, don't blame us. It was all the ambassadors fault."

Lest anyone thinks that Russia is anywhere close to "blinking", allow us to disabuse you of such naive thoughts with these Reuters and BBG headlines:

  • RUSSIA SAYS UKRAINE SHELLED RUSSIAN TERRITORY WITH THE INTENT TO KILL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS; PROOF FOR `FALSE' U.S. CLAIMS `SIMPLY DOESN'T EXIST' - -INVESTIGATIVE COMMITTEE STATEMENT;

But the biggest telltale is what we have said the latest escalation is all about: the South Stream - the Russian nat gas pipeline which would circumvent Ukraine entirely. "A draft document on possible sanctions on Thursday also laid out a range of technologies that could be restricted, which could have delayed development of Russia's South Stream gas project to ship gas to Europe via the Black Sea."

Because just like with Syria, so with Ukraine and all the associated brewhaha, at the heart of the ongoing conflict is nothing more than Europe's addiction to Russian energy.

Speaking of Paedophiles from Belgium, the Catholic Church comes to mind...

"...almost every Institution was host to an incident"

Europeans REALLY need to start prosecuting Paedophile Clergy.  Since the RCC has passed a Decree NOT to cooperate with Govt Authorities, they're engaging in Acts against the Sovereignty of Nation-States, Terror, and abetting Child(Sex/Drug/Money/Labor all included) Traffickers.

I'm an ex-Protestant.  My stance wrt upholding the Rule of Law and the Catholic/Mormon/JW/Xian Science rush to supress/sabotage me at Work/Military/Civil Service provides testimony as to their positions as "Enemies of Nation-States and Humanity in General". 

I'm inclined to believe that most "Like-minded People" - especially Sociopaths - tend to congregate and support each other.

The price of gas at the pump has to be manipulated too. It seems not too long ago if there was the slightest disagreement in the middle east the price at the pump would go up 5 minutes later. Then it would stay there for a long time while things "stabilized". Now that we've got wars popping up every day that doesn't seem to happen anymore.

Move along...go for a ride to the mall...everything is fine.

At some point, very soon, Russia will have a discussion internally that goes like this:

We can maintain 10.5 million bpd for another 6 years or so before decline arrives, as it arrives in all oil fields.

But the measurement of oil doesn't have to be barrels per day.  It can be barrels.  We have a lot underground that our grandchildren may need.  If we cut back to, say, 6 million bpd, the price will go sharply higher to perhaps $140/barrel.

Now, we don't *lose* money regardless.  We just choose not to make money we might have made.  We'll have plenty to eat, we'll be able to transport the food and transport anything else we might need to.  Our enemies won't, but they can just go find their own oil.  We have no obligations to them, given that they clearly are behaving like enemies.

And so, we're going to choose to export less oil and gas.  Our future needs that oil and gas and we care more about our future than our enemies' present.

I suspect it will get to a point where countries in the world will be more independant rather than rely on interdependance between nations. Particularly the ones with the resources.

The more i see things unfolding the more i am starting to believe that the wars in the middle east and the cold war that is heating up with Russia is a western plan to collapse the global economy.

It is becoming clear that the emporer has no clothes, that the US will go into recession officially during this year and that Europe will also continue heading into depression and there is no monetary policy that can save them.

They are looking for a scapegoat and that will be the price of Oil, Putin and the Middle East. The world is barely growing on $100 barrel of oil.

Thoughts anyone?

That's what USrael would like.

Russia has been EXTREMELY reliable with it's energy deliveries to Europe. No matter what happened in Russia, the deliveries were never affected over many decades.

USrael would hit several flies with one strike:

Damage Russia's reliability as energy supporter.

Sell own, more expensive energy.

Damage Germany's but also Europe's industry, which would also affect the Euro.

For the same reason the Angloamericans are the biggest supporters of the EU-expansion with countries, that do not fit: Turkey, Moldova, Ukraine.

It's no coincidence, that Goldman Sachs helped Greece falsifying their finances, to get into the Euro-zone. A time bomb that worked very well, btw.

No, they have contracts. 

The correct way to deal with this is not renew them.  All future contracts should have a 1 month duration.

They don't have to ship that gas to Europe.  They have plenty of food.  Money doesn't really matter all that much when you have oil and gas.

 "It really looks like we're trying to push Russia into a war"

NOT looks like but US "is" pushing for war - each escalation of false flag attacks puts europe in position to escalate and get population on board for austerity measures. Each false flag produces the next one as US gets closer to goal of controlling Border with Russia - then false flag intensity will increase because they can literally see the 7 times zones of undeveloped resources for FREE - Putin per the advice probably from the Germans are trying to stave off the inevitable - I think perhaps the Germans are being double agents in their advice to Putin -

Putin should have gone for entire south east to west of Ukraine and take the pipeline - he is getting framed with the same tag regardless of taking the right course for his country

he needs to raise 1 milllion man Separatist army with aid supplied soup to nuts by Russia and take the flak and get it over with - the tax base with industry nationalized for the people,  oil and gas and agriculture wll pay for itself - raise the cost of oil by lowering production and go to $140 /BBl - and assassinate /  murder the Fascist leaders one by one starting with Paruiby

Rompuy

Herman Van Rompuy, who has attended Bilderberg, was Belgium's Minister of Justice when Marc Dutroux escaped from the Belgian police.

Marc Dutroux's gang kidnapped children, and supplied them to the elite, reportedly with the help of the Belgian police.

In July 2013, Van Rompuy visited the Mediterranean island of Malta.

Rompuy has stated that we are all Jesuits now. Told Putin the EU is coming to Russia's borders.

Stefaan De Clerck was the minister of Justice at that time (Dutroux escape). Saying Van Rompuy is the dictator really is to much honour. He is the jesuite sissy of the commission. Just wait untill the Russians think it is opportune to reveal some real facts about UKR or decide to effectively cut the gas. Then you will see the real Van Rompuy : begging ons his naked knees before Putin in naked torso.

Bottom line is oil, they can print the other stuff as much as they want....currency, stawks, bawnds...even gold and silver they can print...can't print oil though so it gets real when there's oil worries.

  The MICEX is only down 4.26% YTD after all the B.S. and sanctions that's a small move.

  Here's the exchange link. If was going to BTFD it would be in the MICEX before the ponzi U.S. or European equity markets.

Judge Kozinski Thinks The Guillotine Should Be Considered -Beheading Is Not Just For Jihadists Or Samarai Anymore

 

We have all heard reports of guillotines being brought in from Canada over the years and the return to jesuit noahide laws. There was some rumbling last year the State of Georgia had passed a bill clearing the way to guillotine used in death penalty cases as the organs can then be used. Nobody seems to be able to locate the bill however.

In an interesting discussion Arizona judge Alex Kozinski has indicated that guillotines might be a better idea than medical injection, however the firing squad is his favorite.

What is next witch burning? Somehow someway, don’t you just feel this is the wave of the future?

When the first world banksters have a phony recovery, don't you think they want a Goldilocks one?  

They have controlled our polidipsie recessions since 2007 with a series of sunny and bubbly recoveries, which no one can gainsay.  

And now TPTB want to sanction Russian crude oil but not Russian natural gas.  

Well, I want the streets in the town where I live repaved.  But I don't want to pay any more taxes to have it done.

We are all entitled to want the unrealizable. That's what freedom means.

There is also a touch of 'peak oil' in this.

Slow recovery > reduced oil demand > lower price oil > western oil company's reserves decline > also profits.

Slow recovery > reduced oil demand > lower price oil >SANCTION RUSSIAN OIL > reduced oil supply cancels out reduced demand > western oil company's reserves decline less > dip profits maximized.

The time has come for the European Union to completely disassociate the planning and execution of its foreign policy from the US.

This is what Vicky Nuland wants.  Right?

at the heart of the ongoing conflict is nothing more than Europe's addiction to Russian energy....

NO NO, hart of conflict is colapsing economy&export, natural DEFLATION etc. That will all be "solved" with new trade war, isolation, sanctions which will "help" EU companies and cut more than 50% of energy supplies from russia. Than prices will go to sky and all money printing can continue moar and moar cause everybody will beg for "help" from central printers... Imagine typical EU country with huge debt and interests and its tax cash flow in deflation? ... that's why money printing game must go on and on and we must hate eachother and go to wars etc etc

"Here it appears that Europe's unelected leaders are somehow deluding themselves that if faced with escalating sanctions, Russia will not unilaterally cut off the gas to Europe."

Sometime in late November or early December would work a treat.
