Hoy es el día más hermoso de nuestra vida, querido Sancho; los obstáculos más grandes, nuestras propias indecisiones; nuestro enemigo más fuerte, el miedo al poderoso y a nosotros mismos; la cosa más fácil, equivocarnos; la más destructiva, la mentira y el egoísmo; la peor derrota, el desaliento; los defectos más peligrosos, la soberbia y el rencor; las sensaciones más gratas, la buena conciencia, el esfuerzo para ser mejores sin ser perfectos, y sobretodo, la disposición para hacer el bien y combatir la injusticia dondequiera que esté.

Saudi, Russia Pledge Oil Cooperation Without Agreeing Freeze

  • Countries have ‘number of tools’ for joint action, Novak says
  • The world’s top two crude-oil producers pledged to cooperate to stabilize global markets, while failing to announce any specific measures to bolster prices. “We have a number of tools at our disposal for joint actions,” Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said Monday following a meeting with his Saudi counterpart Khalid Al-Falih at the G20 summit in China. Russia would be ready to join an agreement among major producers to freeze output, he said. Nevertheless, no concrete actions were announced at the joint press briefing in Hangzhou, and Al-Falih subsequently told Al Arabiya television there’s no current need to cap production. Oil pared gains after rising more than 5 percent earlier Monday on speculation Saudi Arabia and Russia might detail a plan to drive up prices. Russian President Vladimir Putin said last week he’d like OPEC and Russia to agree on an output freeze, boosting speculation that members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and other major producers might strike such an accord at talks this month in Algeria. 
  • “At first appearance it sounds a little bit as new wine in old bottles,” Axel Herlinghaus, senior commodities analyst at DZ Bank AG, said by e-mail. “In the past there was no lack of ambitious announcements, but a lack of decisive follow-up actions.”
  • Rare Briefing
  • While Russian-Saudi cooperation is yet to yield firm steps toward steadying the market, a joint press conference between the two oil giants is rare. It shows a growing trust and understanding that collaboration is vital to oil’s recovery, the ministers said.
  • Supply and demand will come “more or less into balance this year,” Al-Falih said. A “coordinated, appropriate, collective decision on production would help bring that balance.”
  • In a joint statement, the two countries confirmed they’ll holdfurther talks during the International Energy Forum in Algiers this month. They’ll also coordinate a bilateral working group on oil and gas cooperation in October and meet at the OPEC ministerial summit in Vienna in November.

  • "We still cannot shoulder the responsibility alone; we will play the leadership role and we will catalyze others to join in," Al-Falih said. “We are optimistic that the Algiers meeting would provide a quorum.”
  • The oil ministers of the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait responded to the briefing by welcoming joint efforts to balance the mark
  • A proposal to freeze output was derailed in April over Saudi Arabia’s insistence that Iran participate in any accord. Yet the effect of the prolonged slump in crude prices -- stuck at half the levels seen two years ago -- is giving oil-market rivals cause to collaborate.
  • Putin has said that oil producers now recognize that Iran, which has mostly restored the output halted during three years of trade restrictions, deserves to complete its return to world markets.
  • Iran showed Monday that it’s ready to pump more oil, with state-run National Iranian Oil Co. saying the country can raise production to 4 million barrels a day in two to three months from the current daily level of about 3.8 million.
