Alternativas ao estreito de Ormuz na exportação de petróleo

May 23, 2019 - O estreito de Ormuz – uma artéria vital que liga os produtores de petróleo do Médio Oriente aos mercados da Ásia, Europa e América do Norte – vê passar quase um terço dos fornecimentos mundiais de petróleo por mar.

On average, almost 16.8 million barrels of seaborne oil passed through the narrow waterway each day in 2018.

With global oil consumption standing at about 100 million bpd, that means almost a fifth passes through the Strait, according to Reuters.

Most crude exported from Saudi Arabia, Iran, the UAE, Kuwait and Iraq – all members of the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) – is shipped through the waterway.

It is also the route used for nearly all the liquefied natural gas (LNG) produced by the world’s biggest LNG exporter, Qatar.
