US-Außenministerium beansprucht Hoheit über den Welthandel – unter Ausnahme des UK.

The official said the United States had conveyed its “strong position” to the Greek government, as well as to all ports in the Mediterranean about facilitating the Adrian Darya 1. 

Any efforts to assist the tanker could be considered as providing material support to a U.S.-designated foreign terrorist organization, which has immigration and potential criminal consequences, the official said. (Reuters)

    Exclusive: Russia’s Rosneft to switch to euros in oil products tenders – traders

    MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia’s Rosneft, one of the world’s top oil producers and exporters, has notified customers that future tender contracts for oil products will be denominated in euros not dollars, five trading sources told Reuters.

    The move, which could come as soon as this year, is likely to be seen as an attempt to offset any potential negative impact of U.S. sanctions on Russia.

    Rosneft, which accounts for over 40% of oil output in Russia, produced 45.8 million tonnes of oil products at home in the first six months of this year – from diesel and gasoline to fuel oil and petrochemicals.

    Around half was exported to west and south-east Europe and to Asia, according to the company’s own data.

    The bulk of oil products for export are sold at tenders: Rosneft holds annual tenders as well as a number of spot or short-term tenders, with BP, Glencore, Trafigura, Vitol and Cetracore among top buyers.

    Last year, trading sources told Reuters that Russian energy majors were asking Western oil buyers to prepare to make payments in euros instead of dollars.

    Rosneft last week asked buyers to use the euro as the default currency for the first time in a spot tender to sell naphtha, an official company document showed.

    Rosneft was included in a list of some U.S. sanctions imposed on Russian companies in 2014, although those sanctions do not limit U.S. dollar usage in Rosneft tenders.

    Traders said they believed Rosneft’s latest move was intended to protect the Russian company in case new and unpredictable sanctions are imposed on it by the United States.

    Rosneft contacted buyers about switching from dollars to euros in early August.

    “All new tenders for export oil products supplies will have the euro as the payment currency,” one of the five sources said, confirming what the other sources said.

    Another trader said that Rosneft had last year been actively talking to buyers about including a currency clause in its contracts.

    “In general, everything was agreed (last year), now we will try this in practice,” said the second source, who buys oil products from Rosneft.

    According to Rosneft contracts seen by Reuters, the oil company is proposing to use a euro/dollar currency swap based on Bloomberg data.

    Global oil products prices are set dollars, in line with the global oil trade.

    Rosneft also has bilateral contracts with some buyers but Reuters was unable to determinate whether the company has notified counterparts to those contracts of the switch to euros.

    Cetracore Energy said they had not received notice from Rosneft. Glencore, BP and Trafigura declined to comment. Rosneft and Vitol did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

    Previously Rosneft only used U.S. dollars as the default currency for its oil and products sales, while the euro was considered an alternative currency in case payment in dollars was not possible.


  2. SpaceX Refused To Move A Starlink Satellite At Risk Of Collision With A European Satellite

    The European Space Agency (ESA) says one of its satellites was forced to avoid a satellite from SpaceX’s Starlink constellation, raising concerns about the impact of Starlink on low Earth orbit operations, after SpaceX refused to move their satellite out of the way.

    According to Holger Krag, head of the Space Debris Office at ESA, the risk of collision between the two satellites was 1 in 1,000 – ten times higher than the threshold that requires a collision avoidance maneuver. However, despite Aeolus occupying this region of space nine months before Starlink 44, SpaceX declined to move their satellite after the two were alerted to the impact risk by the U.S. military, who monitor space traffic.

    Die „Ostindische Raumkompagnie“ in Aktion. Man darf gespannt sein, welche Verlaufsformen die Verrechtung des Weltraums, da.h. seine Verwandlung in Territorium, demnächst annimmt.
