9 Mar 2020 Oil prices hit lowest levels since 2016 after oil giant Aramco said it plans to reach an agreement on production cuts to support the price of oil in the face Russia's economy is somewhat more diversified than Saudi Arabia's.
Saudi Arabia's barrels were deemed to be economical to produce even before oil prices spiked. For that reason, I consider Saudi Arabia's proved reserves -- 16% of the global total -- to be of the most significance to the global oil market. But doubts about the amount of Saudi Arabia's reserves have persisted for years. Despite America’s vast reserves of recoverable oil, the cost of extracting that oil still allows lower-cost producers such as Saudi Arabia and Russia to secure a larger share of the global market. Experts project that the U.S. could pass Russia and Saudi Arabia as the world's top oil producer as soon as this year. A decade ago, the U.S. was in the second tier of the world's oil producers. However, there is an important distinction when it comes to Saudi Arabia. In Russia, oil production is concentrated among a dozen or so companies. In the U.S., thousands of companies acting in their own self-interest produce oil. But in Saudi Arabia, all of the oil production is controlled by Saudi Aramco, Saudi Arabia and Russia also top the list of oil exporting countries, while Russia is not a member of OPEC. The monthly U.S. oil production reached 10.07 million b/d in November 2017, the highest monthly level of crude oil production in U.S. history. In May of 2019, the country became a net oil and gas exporter, the first time since 1953.
only oil not threatened by Russia's rise is the petroleum developed by international enterprises once produced more than 12.5 mbd before the Soviet collapse the largest is one-third more than Saudi Arabia's peak share at the end of 2ooo.
Thanks to the shale oil boom, the U.S. is now sitting on more oil reserves than Russia, which Rystad estimates as having 256 billion barrels of untapped oil. The next-richest countries in terms of oil after that are: Saudi Arabia (212 billion), Canada (167 billion), Iran (143 billion) and Brazil (120 billion).
