Irans Ölexporte sinken noch vor den Sanktionen
November 1, 2018 -- US Sanktionen gegen Irans Rohöl- und Kondensatexporte führten bereits zu weniger Verkäufen, aber China und Indien – die zwei größten Käufer von Irans Rohöl – werden voraussichtlich auch weiterhin Öl aus dem Iran kaufen.
Oil exports from Iran fell to 1.72 million barrels a day in September, their lowest level since February 2016, according to Bloomberg tanker tracking data.
Tracked shipments, excluding volumes stored on tankers at Iran’s export terminals, are now down 1.1 million barrels a day, or 39 per cent, since April -- the final month before U.S. President Donald Trump pulled the U.S. out of the Iran nuclear deal.
South Korea, France and the Netherlands stopped imports of Iranian crude in September, with declines in shipments to Italy and the United Arab Emirates, ahead of the impending return of U.S. sanctions on November 5.
On November 1, the Indian Economic Times reported that the Trump administration had agreed to grant New Delhi a waiver from Iran sanctions, allowing Indian oil companies to continue to import about 580,000 barrels of Iranian oil a day. The exemption would last until March 2019.
