E' nato il PetroYuan: Gazprom ora si fa pagare il petrolio che vende ai cinesi in Yuan


Mai sentito parlare di PetroDollaro come nuova valuta di riserva mondiale dopo il taglio del legame fra Dollaro e Oro nel 1971 e fine degli accordi di Bretton Woods? Beh, pare ci sia qualche novità:

Zero Hedge - The PetroYuan Is Born: Gazprom Now Settling All Crude Sales To China In Renminbi
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 06/09/2015

Gazprom ha confermato che è dall'inizio dell'anno che si fa pagare le sue vendite di petrolio ai cinesi in Yuan Renminbi.

Dal Financial Times:
Russia’s third-largest oil producer, is now settling all of its crude sales to China in renminbi, in the most clear sign yet that western sanctions have driven an increase in the use of the Chinese currency by Russian companies.

Russian executives have talked up the possibility of a shift from the US dollar to renminbi as the Kremlin launched a “pivot to Asia” foreign policy partly in response to the western sanctions against Moscow over its intervention in Ukraine, but until now there has been little clarity over how much trade is being settled in the Chinese currency.

Gazprom Neft, the oil arm of state gas giant Gazprom, said on Friday that since the start of 2015 it had been selling in renminbi all of its oil for export down the East Siberia Pacific Ocean pipeline to China.

Russian companies’ crude exports were largely settled in dollars until the summer of last year, when the US and Europe imposed sanctions on the Russian energy sector over the Ukraine crisis...

Gazprom Neft responded more rapidly than most, with Alexander Dyukov, chief executive, announcing in April last year that the company had secured agreement from 95 per cent of its customers to settle transactions in euros rather than dollars, should the need to do so arise.

Mr Dyukov later said the company had started selling oil for export in roubles and renminbi, but he did not specify whether the sales were significant in scale.

According to Gazprom Neft’s first-quarter results issued last month, the East Siberian Pacific Ocean pipeline accounted for 37.2 per cent of the company’s crude oil exports of 1.6m tonnes in the three months to March 31.
Gli import cinesi di petrolio da alcuni dei big dell'OPEC sono scesi mentre quelli dalla Russia sono saliti del 36% nel solo 2014. Nel frattempo gli import dall'Arabia Saudita sono scesi dell'8% e quelli dal Venezuela dell'11%.



Fine del Petrodollaro? Un po' prematuro, direi. Certo che ogni mese pare aggiungersi un nuovo tassello al quadro di un mondo meno monopolare.
