- There were 18 Oil Nations including Russia a Non - Opec delegate, who participated in the Daha Conference at Qatari capital of Doha which was previously expected to be able to reach a deal, since every stack holders in the Global Oil business worldwide has really suffered losses due to the Oil Price collapse since June 2014. From the media we understand that there was a fierce debate relating to the wording of communique - including between Saudia Arabia and Russia. Thus the delagates and the miniters had announced that "No Deal Had Been Reached."
As an Independent Business Lawyer from the Legal Aspects, the Writer of this AGUNGSS Business Lawyer Note Blog has the impression that Saudi Arabia was taking the lead in emphazising that Iran as the Opec Member had to agree to freeze its oil Output, since it appears that Teheran was absent in the talks in such Daha Conference.
One interesting view from the legal aspects in reaching an agreement or a deal, we observe that since Iran is just only 1(one) member or participant in the Daha Conference who was absent in the talks, out of the 18 (eithgteen) Delegates, we can say that the Deal to Freeze could actually be easily reached, since only 1(one) delegate was absent, which leaves the other 17 (seventeen) Delegates to be the majority vote in the conference and can therefore easily strike a Deal to freeze their oil out put production. As we understand from observes oil analyst they say that it will take a rather long periodic of time for Iran to build its Oil infrustructure, before it could produce and tab its Oil Market Share, which will be rangging from 500 barrels/per day up to 3 Million barrels per day.
- However, from the Geopolitical Perspective, we understand that Saudi Arab and Iran are confronting each other in the Middle East Syria Crisis war, causing Saudi Arab as the Major Oil Producers in the Arab Regional Countries who assist Yemen, and other Middle East Countries to have a tough strong hold in the Vote to demand Iran to join in the freeze as a condition for Saudi Arab to agree in freezing its oil output production.
This development of course will be really negative signal to the Global Oil Industries causing fears that major oil producers will not end their battle for the market share, particularly after a threat from Saudi Arab to raise its oil output steeply if "No Freeze Deal of the Oil Output Production cannot be reached". Well it is really a disaster if supply and demand of oil is not being the real elemen causing the fluctuation of the Oil Prices, but is rather more stronger affected and pressured by the Oil War Geopolitical Elemen as the Major Factor causing real suffer and major losses to other stackholders within the Oil Business Globally, including affecting the Indonesian Economy, not to mention the internal political tug of war battle within the Political Elit surrounding the Oil Business Pragmatical approach in Indonesia, particularly if "Huge Potential of Oil and Gas Discover", has been predicted to be discovered as shown in the Masela Block - Paradox Pros and Cons.Cheers.
