May 20 Brazil will export more crude oil in 2014 than it will import, Magda Chambriard, director general of Brazil's oil regulator, the ANP, said on Tuesday.
If her prediction comes true, the oil-trade surplus will be Brazil's first since 2012, when the country exported $20.3 billion of crude oil and imported $13.4 billion, according to Brazil's commerce and trade ministry.
Nowhere is it explained that Brazil (while one of the great oil producers) is also a net oil importer. The country actually produces 2.6 million barrels a day, and consumes just over 3 million barrels per day.
Why? How? What's up? For the same reason the US is often described an exporter of oil . . . the world refineries have to blend (distillates, the individual components of oil) to create final product. So Canada produces heavy tar-sands gunk, the Bakken produces light natural gas liquids aka propane etc. The US/Canadian trade in blending components goes back an forth.
