India Has Back-Up Plans In Case Of Complete Iranian Oil Cut-off

The Trump administration's ban on Iranian oil threatens to prompt a crude shortage, analysts say, that could hit American taxpayers at the gas pump just as they expect some relief in gas prices after the summer.

The US "down to zero" plan rests heavily on banning India and China from buying from the Iranians, and while Indian companies have suggested they will dial it back, China remains in the nuclear deal and nearly certainly won't give in to US demands.

He hopes that will keep prices low - and motorists happy with cheaper fuel - as he tries to force the Iranians out of the market.

Some customers in Asia are already considering acquiescing to President Donald Trump's demand to end trade with Iran by early November when sanctions aimed at curbing the Islamic republic's nuclear program come into effect.

Some key countries are reliant on Iranian oil imports, including India and Turkey.

"This will be the first time that the United States has sought to erect a secondary sanctions regime in defiance of our traditional partners in Europe and Asia rather than in co-operation with them, and Iran and others will surely seek to exploit this Western divide" Mr Singh said.

"Iranian crude oil will be offered on the bourse and the private sector can export it in a transparent way", First Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri told an economic event in Tehran broadcasted live on state television. "He has agreed!", though statements from Saudi media have made no mention of an agreement to raise Saudi oil production.

"Our attempt is to defeat USA policies in the sale of oil and we are pretty sure we will sell our oil as much as we need", he added. Despite almost reaching a deal with the Germans, French, and British, President Trump dismissed their progress and withdrew the US from the landmark nuclear accord anyway. "There's nothing we can't procure, there's nothing we can't process", Singh said.

But members did not reach a decision "to assign any allocated production level of any member to others", Iran's oil minister Bijan Zangeneh said in a letter addressed to the oil cartel published by the ministry's Shana news agency.

However, "sanctions alone won't cut it - we'll need to use all of our policy levers, and the help of our allies", he said.

"We are not looking to grant licences or waivers in the Iranian market ... but we are prepared to work with countries who are reducing imports", he said.

"Anyone trying to take away Iran's oil market (share) would be committing great treachery against Iran and will one day pay for it", Jahangiri warned in an open reference to Saudi Arabia.
