Saudi Arabia May Seek Nuclear Weapons If Iran Restarts Nuclear Program

Iran deal 'not dead', says France

On 8 May President Donald Trump denounced the deal, saying he would withdraw the USA from it. So, what happens next?

Several refiners in Asia said they were seeking alternatives to Iranian supplies. "It would not stop Iran from getting nuclear weapons". If history is any guide, there is little chance of this happening, so we are now on a course of escalating confrontation.

Saudi Arabia has voiced political support for President Trump's decision, and it would likely back this up with an increase in output to reduce the negative impact of higher energy prices on American consumers and the US economy. Our model suggests that roughly 25% of Iranian oil exports will be curtailed over the course of a year, but far less over the next 180 days, which is the window provided by the US Treasury to comply with the sanctions. At the same time, a US government report showed the biggest crude inventory drop since March.

The U.S. will not have the coalition that shut in 1 million barrels per day (mb/d) of Iranian oil exports prior to the 2015 agreement. Saudi authorities said they intercepted the missiles.

As a result of the new USA sanctions, companies worldwide must stop doing business with Iran or risk United States fines or other punishment.

Analysts had little hope that opposition to the US action would prevent sanctions from going ahead. That's because the US will reimpose sanctions on Iran's economy and its oil exports.

Fuel is expected to rise to $3 per litre following President Donald Trump's decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal.

More rain, more flooding forecast for Fairfax
Over in northern Idaho, Lake Pend Oreille (pawn'-duh-ray) is expected to reach flood stage on Thursday. Meteorologist Ryan Leach said that the river will be at flood stage for weeks to come.

Iran said it had asked Europe's Airbus to announce whether it would go ahead with a plane deal with Tehran following the US pullout. A Chinese oil company also has a deal to develop the country's massive South Pars offshore natural gas field.

It is highly likely, Khoman believes, that a special formula used for buying Iranian oil during the time of worldwide sanctions is going to be revived. Much of the reason for that stems from the Obama administration's deal with Tehran.

There is no denying the fact that this decision of the U.S. government will have an impact on Indo-Iranian Chabahar agreement.

Iran's oil exports hit 2.6 million barrels per day (bpd) in April, according to the Oil Ministry, a record since the lifting of sanctions.

Russian Federation will benefit most from a withdrawal from Iran by European and other global companies.

The threat of new sanctions come amid an oil market that has already been tightening due to strong demand, especially in Asia, and as top exporter Saudi Arabia and top producer Russian Federation have led efforts since 2017 to withhold oil supplies to prop up prices.

Saudi Arabia is ready to offset any supply shortage but it will not act alone to fill the gap, an OPEC source familiar with the kingdom's oil thinking said on Wednesday.

Trump Tower transcripts released
Trump Jr. said in a statement on Wednesday that he was glad the Judiciary Committee had released its record of his statements. Manafort's notes also contain references to "tied into Cheney" and "active sponsors of RNC" without any further explanation.

Barclays does not see a significant impact on the oil market either.

A lot depends on what Iran does next.

The EU is scrambling to find ways to safeguard huge business deals with Iran, amid the threat of United States penalties.

The American president's withdrawal, as well as increasing investments into alternative energy, sent prices soaring last week to their highest level since 2014, the NZ Herald reported. This price increase is related to fears that the global supply of oil will be squeezed if the Iran nuclear deal falls through.

"I would say Russian Federation will benefit most from a withdrawal from Iran by European and other worldwide companies".

However, the announcement was hailed by Washington's principal allies in the Middle East: Israel and Saudi Arabia. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. sees an upside risk to its oil price forecast following Trump's actions on Iran.
