Support from China & Russia Amid Oil Market Volatility

Bisnis, JAKARTA— Throughout 2023, oil from Russia is set to be China's primary energy supplier, surpassing orders from Saudi Arabia, which has traditionally been its largest supplier.

China's increased reliance on Russian oil comes as it seeks to counteract Western sanctions limiting significant oil purchases from Russia. The prices offered by Russia are notably discounted compared to prevailing prices on the spot market.

Citing Chinese customs data, Reuters reported on Monday (22/1/2024) that Russia dispatched 107.02 million metric tons of crude oil to China last year, equivalent to 2.14 million barrels per day (bpd). This figure surpasses the volumes from other major exporters like Saudi Arabia and Iraq.

As a comparison, the total oil production from all Indonesian mines amounted to 571,280 barrels per day as of last November. This implies that China's oil purchases from Russia are nearly four times greater than its oil production from Indonesia. Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia, the former leading supplier to China, experienced a decrease of 1.8% in its supply to 85.96 million tons.
