Flotilla Of 12 Tankers Carrying Russian Oil Approaching The US​

Tells you everything you need to know about so called sanctions effectiveness and US deceit and dishonesty .


WEDNESDAY, MAR 16, 2022 - 10:00 PM
At a time when the mere thought of Russian vodka or caviar, let alone oil or gas, prompts uncontrollable shaking and revulsion, Reuters reports that no less than 12 tankers carrying Russia-linked cargoes of crude and refined products were approaching the United States on Wednesday, as suppliers rushed to deliver ahead of the U.S. government’s deadline to wind down Russian energy purchases, data from traders and Refinitiv Eikon showed.
While the US recently banned Russian energy product imports due to the invasion of Ukraine, Washington’s ban gives importers a 45-day window until April 22 to discharge cargoes moving under pre-ban contracts. At least one tanker heading to the United States and carrying fuel oil has diverted, and at least two others that stopped at Russian terminals are awaiting discharge at U.S. ports.
Despite the ban, Vortexa data analyzed by energy strategist Clay Seigle showed that U.S. crude and products arrivals from Russia are provisionally forecast at 18 million barrels, or 597,000 barrels per day (bpd) on average this month. That compared with an average of 672,000 bpd last year. “U.S. importers need to consider not only the legal risk, but also the reputational risk for dealing in sanctioned or stigmatized oil products,” Seigle added.

This is really stupid to complain about. Of course there would be a window when you would wind down energy purchases…. Theyre trying to hurt the Russians, not US businesses

I think you have missed the obvious --- the US is buying Russian Oil , ( incredible in itself ) which it cannot buy elsewhere .

As forecast .

How stupid do you have to be not to see this before raising inoperable sanctions ?

You apparently didn't read past the headline or do not have a calendar...


The United States, the world's biggest oil consumer, this month banned imports of Russian energy products due to the invasion of Ukraine, which Moscow calls a "special operation." Washington's ban gives importers until April 22 to discharge cargoes moving under pre-ban contracts.

God forbid they fulfill their contracts.

Did your school reports contain many 'must try harder' comments?

Reuters news and we know it is 100% from obvious tracking sources .
I tried to help people not able to carry out simple research by making this 100% clear in the OP .

You need to read posts in full and in detail before making rash and rush comments. .

*smacks forehead*

I forgot the OP is a Trumpist. They're used to people doing business like Trump, constantly reneging on contractual agreements.

My bad!

Should we have just dumped it in the ocean?

I’m confused here. The oceans are big places and ships don’t just move across them instantly. The freight was likely bought and paid for prior to sanctions.

Simple "research"? All you had to do was read the damn article... There is NOTHING nefarious going on... Pootins pals are watching the last of their Russian oil arrive in the US... The exchange rate for the ruble is in the toilet...

Why are you stating the obvious as if it has any bearing on the US buying Russian oil ?

I notice you remain a staunch Conspiracy Theorist with your rather silly attempt to tell us about ZH ownership .
Cross out your Fake News and substitute, a small team of anonymous ex Hedge fund owners who are independent millionaires and sick of the present corrupt system .

See how DYOR can help ?

A Bulgarian hacker indeed ? Only Wiki or some outfit equally corrupt could produce such a silly story . And only very Gullible people would swallow such patent drivel .

Go away and project your own inadequacy on someone else. Nobody here cares what you say or 'think' other than to correct your routine stupidity. I said nothing about a 'hacker', so quit lying, there's a good little tovarisch.

Ignore .
It's snowing .

I thought you were transferring? Still need the production quota to keep afloat till the transfer goes through? Think of these tankers as just finishing up till they transfer to hauling gravel.

I love to see loyalty, though in embarrassing and dangerous situations this can be badly misplaced .

Any credibility you might have had will disappear forever if proved wrong . Covid and Inflation spring to mind .

Next are the criminal killer Shots
