USA sanctions on oil from Venezuela and Iran have played into Russia's hands on energy policy, according to a new analysis that found that refiners have turned to Russian exports to fill the gaps, The Hill writes in an article "Europe turning to Russia for oil amid United States sanctions on Venezuela, Iran: report". Reuters reported Friday that us sanctions on oil from the two countries has led to a global shortage of "sour" oils, described as heavier than oil produced from countries such as the usa, which is experiencing record oil production of variants described as lighter and sweeter than its Russian, Venezuelan or Iranian competition.

According to the data obtained by Reuters, India's imports of Iranian oil jumped to 405,000 bpd in March 2019, up by 56 percent from February 2019. March volumes were however about 6 percent lower than the purchase in the same month a year earlier.

Iran was hoping to sell more than 500,000 bpd of oil to India in 2018/19, its oil minister Bijan Zanganeh said past year, and had offered nearly free shipping and an extended credit period to boost sales to the country. Another major reason for increased Indian buying of Iranian oil before November was that Iran was offering very attractive terms to Indian buyers, including nearly free shipping and an extended credit period for payment.
