Where do you get your stats from? Geo. Soros. Saudi Arabia has about 10% of the worlds production.
Oh, the "owner" of Gasprom is in a Russian prison where he has been for about five years now. Don't ever cross sword with Putin. He is far worse than our Obama.
And yes, Russian, in one way or another, controls 100% of the production of petroleum.
But Rogue, everybody who knows a bit about oil and Opec knows that said Opec produces about half the world'd oil . Now, I was not talking reserves , that is something totally different.
Huge producers like Russia, Mexico, Brasil, Canada, Norway, not to mention the United States, a huge producer, more than Canada I believe, are not part of Opec. Neither are they state-owned, though not sure about Mexico. Anyhow, we get together, we lower the price, Opec HAS to follow. As I said, hey, let's let the "bad" guys at Opec take the blame and we'll follow their price lead all the way to the bank. The Cayman, Swiss and Louxembourg banks of course.
