SAUDI ARABIA OIL IMPORTS

In the first half of 2015, Saudi Arabia exported on average 4.4 million barrels per day (b/d) of crude oil to seven major trading partners in Asia, making up more than half of Saudi Arabia's total crude oil exports over that period. Even as global crude oil prices fell in 2014 and 2015, Saudi Arabia increased production and kept its export levels high, enabling it to maintain its market share in these countries. However, long-term trends within Saudi Arabia's energy sector may reduce its global crude oil market share.

In many past situations where global oil markets have experienced a supply glut and relatively low prices, Saudi Arabia has adjusted production levels in an attempt to raise prices. In 2014 and 2015, however, Saudi Arabia decided to focus more on maintaining its crude oil market share among its customers, particularly in Asia, where much of the recent growth in liquid fuels demand has occurred.

From January to June 2015, total crude oil imports reported for seven Asian countries averaged 19.1 million barrels per day (b/d), about 700,000 b/d higher than during the same period in 2014. The share of these crude oil imports from Saudi Arabia averaged 23.2% from January to June, compared to 23.9% in the same period in 2014. Saudi Arabian crude oil import shares were nearly unchanged in China, Japan, India, South Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand, while declining in Singapore.

SAUDI ARABIA OIL IMPORTS

 

Long-term trends within Saudi Arabia's domestic energy sector in addition to competition from other crude oil-exporting nations may result in a decline in Saudi Arabia's global crude oil market share. Saudi Arabia has invested heavily in its refining sector in an effort to reduce petroleum product imports, decrease its reliance on using crude oil for power generation, and shift towards exporting more petroleum products. With the commissioning of two major refineries in the past two years, Saudi Arabia added 800,000 b/d of refining capacity, which now stands at roughly 2.9 million b/d.

According to data from the Joint Organizations Data Initiative (JODI), Saudi Arabia's crude oil refinery input (the amount of crude oil processed domestically) has been gradually rising since 2014, and it reached a record 2.4 million b/d in May before dropping in June. If Saudi Arabia continues to increase its refinery input, the amount of crude oil available for export may decline, reducing its crude oil market share not only in Asia but in other regions as well. However, with increased production of petroleum products from their new refineries, Saudi Arabia could gain market share in the distillate, jet fuel, and gasoline markets.

Competition from countries exporting crude oil can also affect Saudi Arabia's share in Asian markets. Russia is exporting more crude oil to China and Japan and temporarily surpassed Saudi Arabia's market share in China in May 2015. The potential for increased Iranian crude oil on the global market could also displace imports of Saudi Arabian crude oil.

RUSSIA - CHINA - VENEZUELA OIL

“The principal risk regarding Russian and Chinese activities in Venezuela in the near term is that they will exploit the unfolding crisis, including the effect of US sanctions, to deepen their control over Venezuela’s resources, and their [financial] leverage over the country as an anti-US political and military partner,” observed R. Evan Ellis, a senior associate in the Center for Strategic and International Studies’ Americas Program.
