Der Altmeister Anthony Cordesman vom CSIS warnt in einem Beitrag vor den möglichen Folgen, falls der Konflikt mit dem Iran die Tankerschifffahrt durch die Straße von Hormuz lahmlegen würde: „If one examines the worst case in terms of Gulf oil exports, the potential threat to global petroleum supplies is all too serious, and almost all current news media and commentary badly understate its potential impact on the United States. The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates that ‚the Strait of Hormuz is the world’s most important oil chokepoint because of the large volumes of oil that flow through the strait. In 2018, its daily oil flow averaged 21 million barrels per day (b/d), or the equivalent of about 21% of global petroleum liquids consumption.‘ EIA also warns that “there are limited options to bypass the Strait of Hormuz.“ (jw)
