    Iran looks into 5-6 routes to deliver gas to EU after sanctions are lifted - gas company NIGC
    Tehran is considering several gas delivery routes to Europe after Western sanctions on the country are lifted.

    “Iran is considering several routes to deliver gas to Europe, possibly around five or six routes,” Azizollah Ramezani, head of the National Iranian Gas Company’s liaison office told RIA Novosti news agency on Wednesday.

    There is the idea that Iran may join Turkstream to get some of its assets into Europe.  So there may be negotiations in the future between Iran, Turkey and Russia.

    That's non-sense, Iran has already a captive market in the East, why would it risk the same kind of BS like Russia by selling its gas to the very people that want to choke it? Unless it is a cartel swap, Russia takes some Iranian shares towards the East and Iran recoups Russian shares in Europe...the second option will have big issues with the current crop of thieves in Europe and the US.

    Well, India is one of Irans largest consumers of oil/gas and Russia is looking to build a pipeline to India, as well, Russia acts as a medium between India and Iran for sales of oil/gas, so my guess is it will be a cartel swap of some sort.

    https://www.checkpointasia.net/will-the-us-sanction-europeans-over-nord-stream-2/

    The above article has a serious error. The USA simply does not have the LNG export capacity to "liberate Europe from Russian Nazis".

    American natural gas export capacity was 5 billion cubic meters (bcm) in 2017. The US imported 80 bcm from Canada in 2018:

    https://www.neb-one.gc.ca/nrg/sttstc/ntrlgs/rprt/ntrlgssmmr/ntrlgssmmr-eng.html

    The US produced

    https://yearbook.enerdata.net/natural-gas/gas-consumption-data.html

    https://www.eia.gov/dnav/ng/hist/n9070us2A.htm (Funny how the EIA counts imports from Canada as US production)

    As of 2018, the USA produces 780 bcm of gas per year and consumes over 760 bcm. It exports 53 bcm to Mexico. The surge of production
    in 2018 has increased its export capacity to countries other than Mexico to 47 bcm.

    The Devil in the details is that the US production surge is from tight gas plays. Russia's production is conventional. Tight gas
    production requires a much larger number of wells to frack the gas and the production lifetime for these wells is much smaller than for
    conventional gas wells. They have a much thinner tail which reflects the low rock porosity and thus lack of gas flow to the well.
    Tight has reserves are, by definition, smaller than conventional ones per cubic meter of rock. Thus, the US production is a flash in
    the pan that will not give Europe a secure gas supply. A few years of high production is not what is needed. Long term supply is
    required.

    So Europe is better off with securing access to Russian and Iranian natural gas instead of US snake oil.

    European gas market Empty EastMed pipeline

    Post  George1 Wed Jan 01, 2020 2:48 pm

    Netanyahu in Athens on Thursday to sign East Med agreement

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will pay a formal visit to Athens from January 2-4 and sign the Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) between Greece, Israel and Cyprus for the East Med pipeline with his Greek counterpart Kyriakos Mitsotakis and Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades.

    According to the Israeli embassy in Athens, Netanyahu will also hold bilateral talks during his stay with Mitsotakis, Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos, Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias and Anastasiades.

    In addition, he will also attend a trilateral meeting with Mitsotakis and Anastasiades, before the signing of the agreement for the pipeline which will transfer gas from Israel via Cyprus, Greece to Europe.

    A direct link to new sources for Europe


    The Eastern Mediterranean (EastMed) pipeline project relates to an offshore/onshore natural gas pipeline, directly connecting East Mediterranean resources to Greece via Cyprus and Crete that could: i) enhance Europe’s gas security of supply via diversification of counterparts, routes and sources; ii) develop EU indigenous resources such as the offshore gas reserves around Cyprus and Greece; and iii) promote the development of a South Mediterranean Gas Hub.

    The project is currently designed to transport initially 10 Bcm/y (billion cubic meters of gas per year) from the off-shore gas reserves in the Levantine Basin (Cyprus and Israel) into Greece and, in conjunction with the Poseidon and IGB pipelines, int to Italy and other South East European countries. Furthermore, the pipeline would allow to feed Cyprus internal consumption with additional 1 Bcm/y.
    The route

    The EastMed project current design envisages a 1.300 km offshore pipeline and a 600 km onshore pipeline. The pipeline, starts from the new natural gas discoveries in the East Mediterranean region and comprises the following sections:

    200 km offshore pipeline stretching from Eastern Mediterranean sources to Cyprus;
    700 km offshore pipeline connecting Cyprus to Crete Island;
    400 km offshore pipeline from Crete to mainland Greece (Peloponnese);
    600 km onshore pipeline crossing Peloponnese and West Greece.

    The EastMed pipeline is preliminarily designed to have exit points in Cyprus, Crete, mainland Greece as well as the connection point with the Poseidon pipeline.
    European support

    In 2015, with the support of the Cypriot, Greek and Italian Governments and as a result of the benefits that the project brings to Europe, the EastMed pipeline has been confirmed as Project of Common Interest (PCI), being included by the EU Commission in the second PCI list among the Southern Gas Corridor projects.

    The EastMed project has also been included in the last Ten Years Development Plan (TYNDP), in line with the objective of the European Network Transportation System Operators of Gas (ENTSOG) to create a single European market for gas and a reliable and safe transmission network capable of meeting Europe's current and future needs.

    The project has been awarded in 2015 with European grants of 2 million euro through the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) program necessary for the co-finance of the Pre-FEED activities.

    In April 2017, during the Ministerial Summit held in Tel Aviv, in the presence of European Commissioner Miguel Arias Canete, the Ministers for Energy of Italy, Greece, Cyprus and Israel signed a Joint Declaration to reaffirm their support to the swift implementation of the Project.
    Development status

    During the period 2015-2016, IGI Poseidon has finalized, also thanks to EU financial contribution under the CEF program, with the support of first class international engineering (Intecsea and C&M consortium) and global consultancy (IHS-Cera) firms, the PRE-FEED studies, definitively confirming that the EastMed Pipeline Project is:

    technically feasible: relevant industry players have confirmed availability of several pipe mills and of multiple laying vessels capable of securing project realization;
    economically viable: current estimate of project capital expenditures requirements evidences that the total project cost results lower than similar-capacity import projects to EU and sustainable in view of EU gas prices scenarios;
    complementary to other export options: current discoveries from the region would sustain approximately 30 Bcm/y exports to global markets, without accounting for future discoveries in a widely underexplored region, and would therefore support multiple export schemes, including to global markets via LNG and to Europe via EastMed pipeline.

    EastMed Pipeline Project development activities are now focusing on performing marine surveys along the route, in order to improve routing accuracy and to finalize preparation of the tender packages for initiating the proper development phase, that would allow the project to reach Investment Decision status.

    Funny, the yanquis are claiming they can supply all of the EU's demand for imports. I guess they are full of sh*t.

    Berlin is ready to pay the United States to lift sanctions on Nord Stream 2

    Today, 12: 15
    52
    The head of the Federal Ministry of Finance of the Federal Republic of Germany, Olaf Scholz, offered former American President Donald Trump assistance in promoting liquefied gas from the United States on the European market in exchange for lifting sanctions restrictions on the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. - 2 ", as it expects to receive a significant profit after its launch.

    This information was published by the German edition Deutsche Welle, referring to the German public environmental organization Deutsche Umwelthilfe (DUH).

    German environmentalists argue that the German government has offered Washington financial assistance in the amount of one billion euros if the Americans agree to block the imposition of sanctions or abandon the application of legislation against the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.

    The DUH representatives, who are in favor of freezing the project, were outraged by such negotiations. In particular, the executive director of this environmental organization, Sasha Müller-Krenner, called the negotiations of the finance minister with the Americans "a dirty deal at the expense of third parties." In his opinion, the government has no right to dispose of the money of German taxpayers in this way.

    And although the government of Germany did not comment on this information, the publication learned that the German authorities were preparing an official statement on this issue.

    The so-called EU environmentalists are the worst sort of scum. How is LNG "cleaner" than pipeline gas? Nobody uses renewable
    energy to liquify natural gas into LNG. So out of a given volume of extracted gas only 70% can be sold as LNG since 30% have
    to be burned to drive the refrigeration process. So LNG has the same CO2 emissions doing less work. Thus it is effectively
    a higher CO2 emitter than piped gas.

    Then we have the total CO2 emissions associated with the infrastructure for LNG. LNG requires liquefaction plants and specialized
    terminals as well as specialized tanker ships. All of these are associated with way more CO2 emissions than any pipeline, including
    a sub-sea one like Nord Stream.

    So these scumbags are not actually promoting environmental agendas but are Washington's minions in its geopolitical dirty war
    on Russia. We can see this with Greanpeace as well, which selectively targets Gazprom's Arctic extraction platforms but
    ignores the western ones. The we have the so-called Greens in France that killed its fast neutron breeder program and
    are actively working to shut down France's nuclear energy production. To be replaced with unicorn and rainbow fart
    energy. Again, the Greens are serving Washington's agenda and not anything that fights global warming and protects the
    environment.

    I doubt it... they probably would rather Germany give up NSII so they can sell more radioactive electricity to Germany.
