Saudi Oil Output Falls to 19-Month Low as Exports Decline

Bloomberg -- Saudi Arabia’s crude oil output fell in December to a 19-month low as the biggest OPEC producer shipped less oil and local use of crude dropped, according to the Joint Organizations Data Initiative.

The country exported 7.06 million barrels of crude a day in December, 1.3 percent less than the previous month, JODI reported, citing statistics the government submitted to the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. It pumped 4.8 percent less in the month to 9.03 million barrels a day.

The kingdom burned 303,000 barrels a day at power plants in December, the lowest level in 10 months, according to the data. That is 29 percent less than what it burned a year ago.

The country, which burns crude to produce electricity and desalinate water, is seeking increasingly to use natural gas as a

Saudi Oil Output Falls to 19-Month Low as Exports Decline! The Saudis are affected by world oil production, cut back their oil production and have a 19 month low output too. A bad world economy and less demand for their crude oil, they cut back their oil production to try to raise the price of oil. After charging extra for their oil for so long and now they are feeling the pinch of a lower income. I feel for them – NOT!
What goes around, comes around.
Drive vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

This is NOT good. China is unseeing so much more, we are going to the summer blend of gas so refineries are shut down all that can happen is the price we pay will keep going up, up, up.

God help us.

Actually, this might not ONLY be an issue of greed, by limiting output. I heard 25 years ago, that after pumping full-out for several decades, the Saudis were terrified of running out of their chief export, oil. That's why they've been trying to diversify their economy by quietly buying many American and European companies, and so on. They know that they'll be tapped out one day. The huge oil reserves are in Iraq.
