Photo Of Pipeline Fire And Map Of Awamiya Region

Tyler Durden's picture





 

And another update this time a video showing Awamiya, Eastern Saudi Arabia, where the oil fields can be seen from minute three onward.

Another update from Arab Digest:

A new photo of the pipeline under fire, from our Qatif correspondent:

Below is a map of oil fields in Saudi Arabia:

The Eastern region is where most of the oil fields are based. The events, if they continue, might force Saudi Arabia to lower its production expectations this year, thus affecting world supplies, and possible the world economy.

A quick review of the proximal refinery courtesy of Saudi Aramco

Ras Tanura Refinery

The most complex Saudi Aramco refinery is on the Arabian Gulf at Ras Tanura with a crude distillation capacity of 550,000 barrels per day (BPD). Ras Tanura Refinery also has a 305,000 BPD NGL processing facility, a 960,000 BPD crude stabilization facility, 145/158 MW (summer/winter) of combined steam and gas turbine electrical power generation plants, a combined 150 lb and 600 lb steam capacity of 6,217 Mlb/hr, and 75 crude oil and products storage tanks with a combined capacity of 5.8 million barrels.

Ras Tanura Refinery's major refining facilities include a 325,000 BPD Crude Distillation Unit, a 225,000 BPD Gas Condensate Distillation Unit, 50,000 BPD hydrocracker and a total of 107,000 BPD capacity of catalytic reforming. Ras Tanura Refinery is the only Saudi Aramco refinery that contains a Visbreaker (60,000 BPD). This refinery also produces 17,000 BPD of asphalt, more than any other refinery in the Kingdom. Crude is normally transferred to Ras Tanura through a pipeline and can also be supplied by ship. Most of Ras Tanura’s production is for domestic use and transferred to the Dhahran bulk plant, while some products are exported.

PHOENIX – An investigative “Cold Case Posse” launched six months ago by “America’s toughest sheriff” – Joe Arpaio of Arizona’s Maricopa County – has concluded there is probable cause that the document released by the White House last year as President Obama’s birth certificate is a computer-generated forgery.

WASHINGTON, March 1 (Reuters) - Iran has made a rare purchase of U.S. wheat in an effort to build food stockpiles as the United States and Europe implement tough new sanctions to contain Tehran's nuclear ambitions.

Lol, do you guys know that for instance first oil shock is due to US production peak in 1971 and not the so called "arab embargo" ? (a leaking joke that lasted around 3 months and was never effective from KSA to the US in particular)

Truth is that US diplomacy ant oil majors needed higher prices (to start Alaska, north Sea, GOM) and **PUSHED** OPEC towards price increase and quotas.

Too bad  James Akins died one or two years ago (key guy in that story)

It triggered all.

I dont think the Arabs or anyone else needed counsel on that topic. They went to the conclusion by themselves.

What your story forgot to mention is that anyone who pointed to the finited nature of oil supply was smashed in the face by charts plotting the rate of discovery of new oil sites. Useless to conserve oil as every year, more oil was discovered than it was consumed.

The rate of discovery plummeted in the same years.

This is the combo of events that led to the reaction by the Arabs.

Fri, 03/02/2012 - 04:21 | Link to Comment yt75
yt75's picture

No, I'm talking facts here.

And the fact is that James Akins indeed suggested $4 or $5 a barrel during an OPEC meeting in Algiers (he was US ambassador in Saudi Arabia at that time), and everybody "amazed".

James Akins is also the guy asked by Nixon to audit US production in 71.

There has been plenty of other "games", like "the oil glut" or counter oil shick in 85 being a deal between Reagan and the Saudis to put the last blow to USSR (and it worked, cutting their foreign currencies revenues by two third).

Americans always want to avoird these historical geopolitical facts, doesn't make them disappear.

As to discoery, the peak of oil discovery is around 1964, so even beflore, and all giants fields discovered even before, except for Cantarell.

I'm planning to buy a used 4x4 Ford diesel soon, but then my commute to work is less than a mile.  If diesel becomes too expensive, I can always walk.  Storing bulk diesel is a lot easier and safer than the same for gasoline too.  It will be a second vehicle too, and the first one is horrible in bad weather and impossible to take off road.  Our current vehicle cannot haul anything dirty either.

I was lucky enough to grab a jeep diesel for the same reasons, but ultra-low-sufur diesel is getting pretty pricey, as of today my gas car wins on $/mile. I strongly suggest you get a good lubricity additive for the diesel's tank, as the new ULSD fuel is terrible at lubricating and it's causing a lot of diesels to implode after a couple years of use. (And on that note, don't but a VW diesel Jetta, the US fuel causes a pump failure that's a $10K+ repair.)

I know people are scoffing at low gas-milage vehicles, but we're entering a catch-22 phase in the US. Road infrastructure is falling apart rapidly, and the ultra-high-milage cars often are small and can't handle crap roads very well, whereas larger tougher 4WDs can. I dumped a Porsche for a 4WD because  the roads in my area had become so shitty as to be undrivable in the Porsche for miles in certain places.

As we sink into developing-world levels of infrastructure, something like a cheap pickup (Toyota Hilux being the 3rd world gold standand) starts to win over fuel economy, even when you're poor.

That is true, but look at the areas under the bushes in the foreground.  If the fire was intense enough to light up the sky like it was dusk, it should be casting  a major shadow there.  Further, there is a highlight on the lamp-post rather than a shadow.

Clearly this was not taken in the last two hours.

But reading the actual story, the SA government seems to be claiming this is a wildfire and that it is a ways away from the pipeline.  THe new picture doesn't really look like it could be anything but a hydrocarbon fueled fire, though.

No blame on the Iranians listed yet? No one blown up found with Iranian passports, because the bomb hit a tree?

Using the SPR for the purpose of lowering gas prices is ludicrous.

You're gona' take oil out that you paid probably $30 a barrel for and then you're going to have to REPLACE it with oil priced over $100.

The main point is that the oil needs to get replaced and that takes supply out of the market supporting higher prices anyway.

The SPR was designed for war purposes NOT manipulating the price of oil in an election year. It would in fact exasperate the problem

So not only do we get the real news first, but we get updates, photos, videos and maps to make sure we are clear on the exact location and the situation at hand.

Anyone here still think donating to Zero Hedge is not a good idea?

Money well spent. Period!

it is just plumbing, imo

  • shut off two valves to isolate the section
  • let it burn out & cool
  • replace the pipe as needed
  • 5 days?  unless there is a religious holiday, of course
  • maybe this will "cause"  prez0 to sell off the strategic reserve
  • again

of copurse, if this is followed by 300 more problematic pipeline fires, one might interpret the propagananda differently

boy!  the sabres would rattle and the heads would roll, then!

  • religiously!

edit} hope this doesn't "paste" poorly} [this kind of "action" during the slow part of the year helps out goobermints collecting sales taxes;  follow [some of] the money

Lot of sand out there, a big country.   Amazing that they haven't found oil all over the place out there.   Of course, getting aerial photo's to investigate oil formations is next to impossible.   Hey!  You don't imagine they're holding out on everyone here now, do you?   You don't think there is more oil in that vast desert than you can burn in a thousand years, do you?

LMFAO!!!   DO YOU!!!

You damn Skippy, dey r.   If the world knew how much oil was out there, the price would drop like a rock.   Why do you think we protect the House of Saud like we do.   Might we be sharing the same secret?   And I don't mean we, as in WE.   I mean as in THEM,... you know, those rotten mutherfuckers that have been skull fucking us blind with their convenient oil tax that makes them richer by the barrel.

Does anybody really think that out of all that land, there is only oil in this one spot.   Give me a fucking break.   That's pure bullshit, and if you think about if for more than a moment, you quickly realize just how much bullshit that really is.... at $110 per barrel and rising.
