🇬🇷Greece builds pipeline to transport natural gas from Caspian Sea l Al Jazeera English
Greece is known for its history and climate, but not for oil and gas. That may be about to change with a new pipeline being completed across the north of the country that will transport natural gas from the Caspian Sea to Western Europe. It's part of a European Union policy to move away from dependence on Russian gas after shipments were stopped for two weeks during the 2009 Ukraine crisis, causing shortages in southeastern Europe.

Caspian pipeline politics of Europe, Russia and China
Russia supplies more then 25 percent of Europe's hydrocarbon needs. Ever since the natural gas cutoffs in 2006 and 2009, the European countries have been searched for ways to reduce their dependency on Russian oil and natural gas. In this context, the crisis in Ukraine has sparked a new drive for the search for alternative sources of energy. One project that is of particular interest, but underappreciated in the media, is the Trans-Caspian pipeline. If realized it would significantly change the energy map of Europe in the long term.

Wide of Karamanlis and Erdogan at podium STORYLINE The leaders of Greece and Turkey opened a gas pipeline project on Sunday that will ease Russia's hold on Europe's energy supplies. Greek Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayip Erdogan met on the heavily militarised border between their countries to underscore the significance of the venture in boosting ties between the rival nations. The two men shook hands on a bridge over the Evros River - Meric River in Turkish - which divides the two countries, and later attended the pipeline's inauguration ceremony at Ipsala border crossing. The 300-kilometre (186-mile) pipeline will provide the European Union with its first supply of gas from the Caspian region, bypassing Russia and the volatile Middle East. It will link the Greek and Turkish networks, and eventually carry gas from Azerbaijan to Italy. US Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman attended Sunday's inauguration, signalling Washington's backing of efforts by some European nations to wean themselves off Russian oil and gas dependency. Russia provides 25 percent of the natural gas and a third of the crude oil used by Europe, according to Eurostat, and Western officials increasingly fear Moscow's potential use of energy for political arm-twisting. Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliev also attended the ceremony. Work on the 300 (m) million euro (440 (m) million US dollars) project formally began in March 2005, launched by Karamanlis and Erdogan. The project would bring significant benefits both for Turkey and for Greece, Karamanlis said, renewing his backing for Ankara's bid to join the European Union. "Today we made the first big step for the construction of the north east ring which will transfer natural gas from the Caspian countries and the Middle East through Turkey, Greece and Italy to central Europe," he said. Erdogan said there was potential to further expand Greek-Turkish energy ventures. Filis warned Azerbaijan might have difficulty meeting such demand.

Will the Caspian Sea deal hold? | Inside Story
Some call it a sea, others a lake. For decades its status has been questioned. Five countries - Iran, Russia, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan - now agree the Caspian Sea, as it is commonly known, has "special status." They all have coastlines on the water, and disputed who owned the area of water. And a deal’s now been done…to share the surface and divide up the seabed. The new agreement will open the way for oil and gas exploration...if it holds. And it could lead to a new global energy and political alliance?

Caspian - Oil "Contract Of The Century"
T/I: 10:59:04 An international consortium to export Azerbaijani oil from the Caspian Sea has decided to use two routes, through Russia and Turkey, to transport the oil to the West. The consortium had three pipeline options. Either to upgrade current pipelines that run from Azeri capital, Baku, north into Russia, then through the volatile Chechen region to the Black Sea. Another option was to avoid Russia and run the pipeline through Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey. Or oil could also be pumped through both pipelines as it was eventually decided.

World Energy Congress | Regional Crossroads Central Asia: Caspian Basin Gas to World Markets
The Caspian basin has attracted much international attention due to its riches in natural gas. The Southern Gas Corridor, the ambitious undertaking to connect the South Caucasus Pipeline (SCP), the Trans Anatolian Pipeline (TANAP) and the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP), will transport gas over a 3,500 kilometre journey from the Caspian Sea into Europe. This project is one of the most complex gas value chains ever developed as it involves cooperation among multiple key players, including seven governments and 11 companies, and requires massive investment to enhance existing and develop new critical infrastructure. Upon completion, the Southern Gas Corridor could change the energy map of an entire region. Questions Is the project on track to deliver gas to Europe as of 2018? What are the key regional benefits beyond profits of the South Corridor project for Central Asia? How important is the supply potential for Europe? What are early lessons from this project and how can the region’s governments and key stakeholders work together to further enhance regional integration?

Russian/Eng/Nat As the world's major oil supplies dry up or are threatened by war, the huge oil reserves of the Caspian Sea have caught the eye of international businesses and governments. Estimated to have the equivalent of three North Sea's worth of oil, scores of major companies have set up in the Azeri city of Baku to take advantage of the boom. Although an international oil consortium has been set up to avoid conflict some experts believe the region could become as volatile as the Middle East in the next century. For this new floating oil platform the calm waters of the Caspian are ideal for exploration and drilling. It's part of the region's third oil boom which started with the fall of the Soviet Union. International oil companies have flooded in since 1991 to tap he area's rich reserves on land and under the sea. Both Russia and America have formed foreign policy around the region, well aware that the development of oil resources can create tensions which often lead to hostilities. Regional rivals Turkey, Russia and Iran are vying for control of the oil exports in an effort to gain the upper-hand in the region and to secure influence over the former Soviet republics of Central Asia. But the Azerbaijani president Geidar Aliyev says that a combination of he new wealth brought to his country by the oil boom and his firm rule will ensure stability rather than conflict. SOUNDBITE: (Russian) \"I don't think Azerbaijan is threatened by the danger of a North-South conflict or between different countries. I don't think it's a reality but I can't guarantee against that possibility.\" SUPER CAPTION: Geidar Aliyev, Azeri President The oil reserves in this part of the world are so great that no single company could efficiently exploit them. So U-S, Russian, Japanese, British, Saudi, Turkish and Azerbaijani interests have created an international consortium. Businessmen hope international cooperation will help keep the region politically quiet and eventually turn it into a major supplier of high-grade oil for world markets. SOUNDBITE: (English) \"I think that you can see from the international interest in the Caspian at this point in time how important this is going to be as a long term resource centre to supply global oil. It's also coming onto the market , onto the global market at a time when other major basins such as the North Sea, such as Alaska etc are going into significant decline.\" SUPERCAPTION: Terry Adams, head of international oil consortium Turkey and Russia are engaged in a bitter battle to export the Caspian oil to Europe via pipelines through their own territories. So far the international consortium has not decided on the long term solution, but early oil exports will go through Russia and Georgia. Political analysts are not that optimistic of stability in the region as the people of the Caspian have along history of confrontation and full-scale wars, often triggered by rivalry over who would control the oil wells. SOUNDBITE: (English) \"It is a danger that the region could become as explosive as the Middle East. You have all the same ingredients which are available in the Middle East. You also have a long history of rivalry between Turkey and Iran, Russia and the West.\" SUPER CAPTION: Viktor Trenin, Carnegie Institute Moscow It remains to be seen whether economic expediency and common sense will prevail in regional politics over centuries of animosity and mistrust. For the time being, Azerbaijan is looking to the future full of hope.

Wide of summit FILE: Mazandaran Province - 2006 16. Wide of Caspian Sea in Mazandaran Province, northern Iran 17. Various of Iranians spending time on beach by Caspian sea 18. Wide of Caspian sea shore STORYLINE: Iran pressed for a bigger territorial stake in the Caspian Sea during a meeting on Wednesday of nations bordering the sea, a lucrative source of caviar, gas and oil. Tehran insists that any new agreement should give an equal portion of the seabed for each of the five littoral states, while most other countries want the division based on shoreline, which would give Iran a smaller share. "The importance of the Caspian Sea has increased sharply in the past years because of its great amount of natural resources and its strategic position," Iranian Foreign Minister, Manouchehr Mottaki said. "Today we clearly witness the need for enforcing new laws on different dimensions of activities related to the Caspian Sea, including extracting natural resources and the effect of human activities on Caspian Sea environment and wild life," he added. Iran argues that two agreements between it and the former Soviet Union in 1921 and 1940 based on an equal division are still valid. It says the agreements should be the foundation for any new deal involving the new nations along the Caspian formed after the Soviet Union's fall in the 1990s. Mottaki, along with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and their counterparts from Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, and Turkmenistan attended the conference, which is paving the way for an eventual Caspian Sea summit. A similar summit in 2002 in Turkmenistan failed to reach an agreement. Russia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan have signed their own bilateral deals dividing 64 percent of the sea, in its northern portion, between them. Iran does not recognise the agreements, but the countries have used the deal to start developing oil and gas resources in the inland sea. Besides the oil and gas reserves in its seabed, the Caspian nurtures the sturgeon fish, source of premium caviar. On the sidelines of the Caspian gathering, Russia's Lavrov was also expected to hold bilateral talks with Mottaki and meet Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. But Lavrov said earlier that Iran's nuclear dispute with the US would not be on the agenda during his visit to Tehran.

English/Nat Seventy years of intensive oil production during the Soviet era has devastated the Caspian Sea and surrounding area. Constant demands to increase production levels meant workers were under pressure to produce vast amounts of oil with no heed for the environment. Now local environmental groups are calling on foreign oil companies to help clean up the environment. And a new study is underway to find out the extent of the devastation and also the main source of pollution. The Caspian Sea area is one of the world's biggest sources of oil. For decades, man has exploited the land and sea, with no heed for the environment. During the Soviet era, oil production was intensive to meet Russian annual targets. Today the area is a dead zone, devoid of wildlife. The soil glistens black with oil spilt from dripping pipelines and machinery. Under the Soviet Union when drilling was completed, oil wells were never sealed, and so oil poured onto the ground. Environmentalists say that this highly visible devastation may be the least of the problems. They are concerned about more invisible materials such as radioactive and highly toxic waste leaking into the Caspian. Broken pipes are repaired in a make-shift manner. But this is not enough to prevent gas hissing out. The ground is a helter skelter of old rusting pipes. Today no one is quite sure where they lead to and what they carry. SOUNDBITE: (English) "During the Communist regime, the main goal was the extraction of oil and nothing else. Nobody cared about the environment, and our leaders every year made their plan to the centre in Moscow that we fulfilled the plan for this year, for the month and so on. So that's why the situation is disastering (disastrous). SUPER CAPTION: Bahar Hadji-Zadeh, board member of Azerbaijan Green Movement Scrap metal litters the coastline of Turkmenistan. Although the metal could be recycled, the Turkmen government has made not effort to do anything with it. Local environmental groups now see foreign oil companies as their only hope to clean up the environment. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We should do a lot together, we should increase the awareness of the population first, to educate the population, to improve the economic situation, to spend money for this for the environment and we should force these oil companies to do something for this." SUPERCAPTION: Bahar Hadji-Zadeh, board member of Azerbaijan Green Movement One of the companies, Monument, which operates in Turkmenistan, says it is trying to clean up areas which it has taken over. Contaminated soil has been removed and scrap metal cleared up. SOUNDBITE: (English) "It's disorderly, it's messy, but most of the damage is superficial and surface related and with a bit of remedial work it can be cleared up. SUPER CAPTION: Atal Gupta, General Manager of Monument Oil's Turkmenistan operation Off-shore, oil platforms are allowed to rust. During the Soviet Union, drilling platforms were never reused, but were left to rot. Some have imploded, others have keeled over into the sea. Divers report that the seabed is a mass of metal. Now a major project in underway to look at the main cause and extent of pollution within the Caspian. The Caspian Environment Programme is being funded by several bodies including the European Union, the World Bank and the Global Environment Facility. It also involves state bodies from each of the countries surrounding the Caspian. Once the investigation is completed, work will begin on trying to clean up the sea. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The final outcome that we hope for is that there will be an agreement with the five countries on how to further protect the sea and improve the environment of the sea."

The Great Caspian Arms Race: Caspian Oil Fuels Military Tensions
Learn more: http://pulitzercenter.org/projects/caucasus-caspian-azerbaijan-kazakhstan-tur... The Caspian Sea has been a strategic backwater with little relevance to the rest of the world for most of its history. But recent discoveries of large oil and natural gas reserves in the Caspian Sea has set the stage for a Caspian arms race. Russia, the most powerful player in the Caspian region, has announced a plan to add 16 new ships to its navy. Iran is strengthening its second largest naval force in the Caspian region. The country's secretive posture on the Caspian sea intimidates its neighbors Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan who are building their own naval forces from scratch with modest assistance from the U.S. Mistrust lingers over the Caspian "Sea of Peace" as each country views the others' navies as a security threat and invest a lot of money to boost its own military.

Caspian Sea: After 22 years of wrangling, deal over oil- and gas-rich body of water reached – and it
After 22 years, an end is in sight for a dispute over a sea that questioned whether it was even a sea. On Friday, the Kremlin announced that agreement had been reached between Russia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, and Turkmenistan, the five littoral states bordering the Caspian Sea. Barring last-minute hiccups, the new convention will be signed in the Kazakh port city of Aqtau on Sunday. Negotiations up to this point have been tough. The convention comes only at the end of two decades, 51 working group meetings, more than a dozen meetings between foreign ministers, and four presidential summits. But then again, a lot is at stake - namely billions of dollars of oil and gas contracts. The Caspian, the largest enclosed body of water in the world, contains a massive 48 billion barrels of oil and 9 trillion cubic meters of natural gas in proven offshore reserves. And that is what we know about: there may be much more, but territorial disputes have frustrated attempts at proper exploration. The Caspian problem arose after the breakup of the USSR. Before then, the water was split between two nation-states: Iran and the Soviet Union. Afterwards, there were four new nations to deal with. One of the major stumbling blocks has been the status of the sea itself. There are no ways in or out of other seas or oceans. So is it really a sea - or a lake? This is no simple debate over words, but of development rights and cash. If it is designated a lake, the rights are divided up equally, with each nation receiving 20 per cent. If, however, it is deemed to be a sea, it is split between the competing nations in proportion to each one's share of its coastline. Iran, the major loser in the sea approach, had been resisting the definition as a result. An early draft of the document published for a short time on the website of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev suggested that the countries would agree to classify it as a sea. According to that document, the sea bed will be divided into sectors and the waters between nations, fishing and common spaces. But a surprise may be in store. Speaking with the Kommersant newspaper on Friday, deputy foreign minister Grigory Karasin said there would be a special “new” legal status for the Caspian. “The Caspian Sea will have its own legal status,” he said. “The five littoral states will have the full jurisdiction over resources in their sectors of the seabed. ”In the absence of an agreement, the countries have continued to develop the seabed they believed to belong to them. To some extents, the treaty will formalise what is already happening. But, crucially, it will also reaffirm Russia’s geopolitical dominance in the region. It is understood the convention will contain clauses asserting that only the Caspian five will have the rights to use the sea region for military purposes. Airspace would be divided between the signatory states, and Russia’s Caspian Flotilla will be guaranteed access to the entire sea. Moscow was reported to

From Caspian Sea to Arctic to MidEast, How Oil Pipelines Threaten Democracy & Planet's Survival. 1/3
http://www.democracynow.org - We spend the hour looking at politics, money and the pursuit of oil, from the series of pipelines originating in the oil-rich Caspian Sea, to the deposits in the Arctic Sea where Russia has charged 30 people with piracy for a Greenpeace protest against drilling, to the vast reserves of the Middle East that have fueled conflict for decades. Three guests join us for a roundtable discussion: Anna Galkina, a member of the London-based arts, human rights, and environmental justice organization Platform; Platform founder James Marriott, author of "The Oil Road: Journeys from the Caspian Sea to the City of London"; and Timothy Mitchell, Columbia University professor and author of the books, "Carbon Democracy: Political Power in the Age of Oil," and "Colonizing Egypt."

Azerbaijan's oil gateway
Azerbaijan—a nation of Turkic Muslims—has been an independent republic since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. Despite a cease-fire, in place since 1994, Azerbaijan has yet to resolve its conflict with Armenia over the Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh enclave (largely populated by Armenians). Azerbaijan has lost almost 20 percent of its territory and must support some 750,000 refugees and internally displaced persons as a result of the conflict. Corruption is ubiquitous and the promise of widespread wealth from Azerbaijan's undeveloped petroleum resources remains largely unfulfilled. Despite its long history of producing oil, Azerbaijan still possesses considerable oil and gas deposits. Today, four off-shore oilfields produce the lion's share of Azerbaijan's output: "Guneshli," which yields 57 percent of Azerbaijan's current oil production, "Chirag," "Azeri," and "Kapaz." During the Soviet period, these fields were left largely untapped because of the expense and difficulty of drilling at great depths under the sea. Since independence, the Azerbaijan International Operating Company, a twelve-company consortium dominated by BP-Amoco, is developing the three largest Azeri oilfields. Apart from the development of the oilfields, which has already begun, Azerbaijan continues its explorations for other deposits in the Caspian Sea. In the part of the Caspian belonging to Azerbaijan, around 24 sites have been singled out as suitable for drilling. The Gateway visits "Oil Rocks", the first ever offshore oil well in the world; a huge feat of engineering, built in 1949

Azeri oil rig fire in Caspian Sea prompts evacuation
2 dead, 29 missing as Azeri oil rig fire in Caspian Sea prompts evacuation. A major fire has broken out on an offshore oil platform in Azerbaijan’s section of the Caspian Sea. The company says two people died and 32 were evacuated - while 29 more are missing. The fire started overnight at a rig at the Gunashli field southeast of Neft Daşları (Oil Rocks) settlement. It was caused by strong winds that damaged a gas pipeline on the platform, the Azeri state energy company SOCAR said. "The fire in the gas pipeline has not been completely extinguished and it has not been ruled out that it could spread to oil and gas wells near the platform," it stated. The rescue operation was hampered by stormy weather with waves rising up to 11 meters high, Trend news website reported. Initial statements did not mention those missing. The order signed by President Ilham Aliyev to launch a probe into the fire only said 1 person was killed and 32 were saved. https://www.rt.com/news/324844-azeri-oil-platform-fire/

Five states sign pact for shared use of Caspian Sea
Five Caspian Sea states signed an agreement on Sunday for collective use of the sea after over two decades of negotiations. Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Russia and Turkmenistan announced they had reached a consensus on how to divide up the potentially huge oil and gas resources of the world’s biggest enclosed body of water, paving way for more energy exploration and pipeline projects. The presidents of the five nations inked the landmark convention on the legal status of the sea at the Fifth Caspian Summit in the Kazakh city of Aktau.

Why it is vital to settle the Caspian's sea-or-lake dispute
The energy potential of the Caspian region will not be realised until a decades-long dispute over the division of the Caspian Sea is settled, says World Review expert Luke Coffey in a Q&A video. If the Caspian countries resolve this dispute, a pipeline can finally be built under the sea which will offer a new alternative to oil and gas for Europe.

The Truth About Pipeline Politics in the Syrian Proxy War
www.undergroundworldnews.com Oil politics in the Syrian civil war is a complex web of money deception and proxy war. What began as non-violent grassroots rebellion against Bashar al Assad and the Syrian state has morphed into a complex proxy war involving countless factions and alliances competing for control of oil, and territory. Various nation states and world powers who have their own financial interests in the region are supporting the armies on the ground. This is because of Syria’s strategic importance as a potential gatekeeper between oil reserves from the gulf and oil markets in Europe. There are two different proposed pipelines that will have to run through Syria in order for this to happen. One sponsored by the gulf states called the “Qatar-Turkey pipeline” and one sponsored by the Iranians and Syrians nicknamed the “Islamic pipeline”. Since the 1990s, Europe has been increasingly dependent on Russian natural gas and oil. In 2014 it was estimated that 42% of the European Union’s natural gas imports originated from Russia. This dependence has limited Europe’s ability to make a show of force against Russia. Last year the U.S introduced economic sanctions against Russia in retaliation for its annexation of Crimea. When the US asked the EU to participate, there was a heated debate amongst the European nations about how exactly to impose sanctions. Eastern Europeans felt especially threatened by Russia’s actions and wanted to enact the harshest penalties possible, however, Western Europeans were well aware that cutting off economic trade with Russia would destabilize their economies. As a result the European Union (EU) has desperately been looking for other sources of natural gas. The “pipeline” which will carry natural gas from Azerbaijan into Europe will help to offset dependence on Russian gas, but will take years to reach full capacity and will not rid Europe of Russian dependence altogether. On top of which European demand for natural gas is expected to rise dramatically in the next 30 years. There is only one known source of gas that can solve Europe’s long term energy needs and that’s source resides in the Middle East underneath the Persian Gulf.

OIL ROCKS - CITY ABOVE THE SEA / Documentary film, Teaser HD
Full film version available on Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/oilrocks SYNOPSIS THE OIL ROCKS – Behind this enigmatic name lies the first and largest offshore oil town ever built. A vast, sprawling web of oil platforms in the middle of the Caspian Sea, commissioned by Stalin in 1949. Imagine: 2,000 oil rigs, 300 kilometres of bridges, rusty old Soviet trucks rolling back and forth, nine-storey building blocks, thousands of oil workers, a cultural palace, a lemonade factory, a green park… Sixty years on, the Oil Rocks still stand. But two-thirds of the infrastructure has been regained by the sea. A kind of Oil Atlantis, only real. Combining black-and-white archives from the Soviet era and contemporary footage, the film tells the story of this timeless place and of some of its amazing inhabitants. It is the first time a Western film crew is allowed to make a documentary on the site since its creation.
