"Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past" said George Orwell. Below, you will find an article that was published by MEES on 29 June 1981. No Production Cut Envisaged In Saudi ArabiaContrary to recent media reports from London and New York, Saudi Arabia has no intention of reducing its oil output for the time being. This was confirmed to MEES on 26 June by an authoritative official Saudi source.In specific denial of reports cited by the BBC and others to the effect that Saudi Arabia would cut its crude oil output by 450,000 b/d as from 1 July, the
The Khafji Offshore site, located on an area jointly controlled by Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, has stopped his production in order to be in compliance with the new Saudi environmental regulations. It means 280 thousand oil barrels per day withdrawn by the market.... a cut in OPEC production, which weight does not fall solely on the Saudis' shoulders. Can this situation bring an upward trend of Oil price on the market?

By Mark StansberryKiev City, Ukraine ~ Photo by SubbotinaIn 1998, while working with a team in Bulgaria, I saw how Russia’s influence was felt because it provided gas supplies to the country. What concerned Bulgaria and Eastern Europe at the time was the great dependency on Russia’s natural gas and energy support. Our team’s goal was to evaluate how we could assist Bulgaria in becoming more self-reliant. It was troubling that natural gas supplies were being used as a means of impacting political and economic decisions within the country. Today, Ukraine is experiencing a similar situation in a

Rosneft is not happy; not happy at all. It's threatening to file a lawsuit against the Russian daily newspaper Kommersant for a report alleging that the Russian company sent President Vladimir Putin proposals for counter-sanctions against Western companies and individuals. Kommersant is owned by Alisher Usmanov (known as the richest person in Russia) who runs a subsidiary of Gazprom (Gazprominvest Holdings). Rosneft is state-owned, Gazprom is state-owned, so I guess it can be said that Kommersant is indirectly state-"influenced."Alisher UsmanovThis isn't the first time the daily business pape
