• 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.

  • 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 ...

  • New Russian Oil Pipeline Directly into China Sep 28 2010 Trans-Siberian Pipeline.flv

    Chinese President Hu Jintao hailed deepening Sino-Russian energy cooperation as a "new start" to relations during his counterpart Dmitry Medvedev's two-day China trip this week, as Moscow and Beijing inked breakthrough deals in the gas, oil and nuclear sector. Medvedev's second presidential visit to China will shore up Russia's burgeoning trade relations with resource-hungry China, as Moscow continues its bid to free itself from an over-reliance on supplying the European market. China does not want to be 70% reliant on Saudi Arabia for Oil. Last week Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin attended the ceremony for the joint Rosneft and China National Petroleum project to build a $5 billion oil refinery in Tianjin, on China's east coast.

"Recent studies suggest elevated levels of pollutants near mining sites including hydrocarbons and heavy metals . . . (It) raises questions about possible effects on health of wildlife and downstream communities. http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/Features/WorldOfChange/athabasca.php This series of images from the Landsat satellite shows the growth of surface mines over the Athabasca oil sands between 1984 and 2011. The Athabasca River runs through the center of the scene, separating two major operations. To extract the oil at these locations, oil producers remove the sand in big, open-pit mines, which are tan and irregularly shaped. The sand is rinsed with hot water to separate the oil, and then the sand and wastewater are stored in "tailings ponds," which have smooth tan or green surfaces in satellite images. The process of extracting oil from the sand is expensive. It takes two tons of sand to produce one barrel of crude oil. Great Canadian Oil Sands opened the first large-scale mine in 1967, but growth was slow until 2000 because the global cost of a barrel of oil was too low to make oil sands profitable. Proposal by Environmental Defence to Add Naphthenic Acids to the NPRI https://www.ec.gc.ca/inrp-npri/default.asp?lang=En&n=AC708134-1 An academic study from the University of Waterloo estimates that Suncor Energy's Tar Island pond had been leaking almost 6 million litres a day into the Athabasca River (Barker et al, 2007). Another incident is documented in correspondence between the Alberta government and Syncrude, and in an assessment commissioned by Syncrude from Golder Associates (Syncrude Canada, 2007; Golder Associates 2009). It is clear that contaminated tailings materials leaked into Beaver Creek, a tributary of the Athabasca River, over a number of years. Another incident of leakage into surface water concerns Suncor's South Tailings Pond leaking into McLean Creek. A study on the issue, in part by a Suncor engineer (Stephens et al) admits that the leakage into the creek will not be stopped, but rather than the company would try to manage the concentrations of deleterious substances in the creek.

Various nation states and world powers who have their own financial interests in the region are supporting the armies on the ground.

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.

Europe has been importing Russian gas since the Soviet times, and today like yesterday, Russia needs our revenues to fill its coffers. The Brandt-Breznev “gas for pipes” pilot agreement dates back to 1970. The first share of Russian gas flowed toward West Germany 1973. Today, it covers 25% of our energy needs, and this figure is growing. But it’s not just a matter of pipes: the idea is to tie Moscow to Europe through our growing gas imports, thus contributing to Russia’s wealth and preventing it from disintegrating. If we need the Russian gas, Russia can’t do without our money.

The Trans-Alaska Pipeline System (TAPS) includes the trans-Alaska crude-oil pipeline, 12 pump stations, several hundred miles of feeder pipelines, and the Valdez Marine Terminal. TAPS is one of the world's largest pipeline systems. It is commonly called the Alaska pipeline, trans-Alaska pipeline, or Alyeska pipeline, (or the pipeline as referred to in Alaska), but those terms technically apply only to the 800 miles (1,287 km) of the pipeline with the diameter of 48 inches (122 cm) that conveys oil from Prudhoe Bay, to Valdez, Alaska. The crude oil pipeline is privately owned by the Alyeska Pipeline Service Company. The pipeline was built between 1974 and 1977 after the 1973 oil crisis caused a sharp rise in oil prices in the United States. This rise made exploration of the Prudhoe Bay oil field economically feasible. Environmental, legal, and political debates followed the discovery of oil at Prudhoe Bay in 1968, and the pipeline was built only after the oil crisis provoked the passage of legislation designed to remove legal challenges to the project. The task of building the pipeline had to address a wide range of difficulties, stemming mainly from the extreme cold and the difficult, isolated terrain. The construction of the pipeline was one of the first large-scale projects to deal with problems caused by permafrost, and special construction techniques had to be developed to cope with the frozen ground. The project attracted tens of thousands of workers to Alaska, causing a boomtown atmosphere in Valdez, Fairbanks, and Anchorage. The first barrel of oil traveled through the pipeline in 1977, and full-scale production began by the end of the year. Several notable incidents of oil leakage have occurred since, including those caused by sabotage, maintenance failures, and gunshot holes. As of 2010, the pipeline has shipped almost 16 billion barrels (2.5×109 m3) of oil.

10 Most Dangerous Roads In The World, these roads you won't want to travel on. Guoliang Tunnel Road, China To say that this is one of the most famous and dangerous tunnels in the world would be an understatement. Known as The Long Corridor In The cliffs...it is one of the most unforgiving roads in the world. The tunnel is only 16 feet tall and 13 feet wide with 30 windows carved into its side, giving you a view of your possible fate should you fail to pay attention. One of the most amazing facts about this tunnel is that it was built by 13 villages who used nothing by hammers and chisels over a period of about 5 years. Argentina and Chile share over 5,000 miles of border. Crossing the Andes from Argentina into Chile first takes you up a takes you up a slow gentle incline until it hits an elevation oaof 10,500 feet where you enter the tunnel of the redeeming christ which takes you across the border into chile' to begin one of the most dangerous descents in the world down a road named by the locals as “Snails Pass.” the road consists of over 20 hair pin turns and switchbacks that have no guardrails and to make it even more interesting, the road is usually covered in snow year around. Sichuan-Tibet Highway The Sichuan-Tibet Highway is a highway over 1300 miles long that takes you from the Sichuan province of China into Tibet. What makes this stretch of highway one of the most dangerous in the world is its high elevation, lack of oxygen, worn out roads, sharp mountain side hairpins and if that's not enough, let's throw in avalanches and landslides that are frighteningly common. If that's not enough to deter you the are is covered in rain and ice for almost 10 months out of the year causing you to get stuck in the mud which some drivers get stuck for weeks. Stelvio Pass The Stelvio Pass at an elevation of 9.045 feet is one of the top 50 highest mountain roads in Europe. The road leading over the pass is the highest paved mountain pass in the Eastern Alps and the only thing keeping you from toppling over the edge is a small concrete barrier. It has over 48 mindbending hair pin turns. Skippers Canyon Road  Our next worldl's most dangerous road takes us to Skippers Canyon Road on New Zealand's South Island. This gravel road was hand carved by miners over 140 years ago. The 16 mile trek down the road is at times so narrow that only one car can pass. Even if you do find a wide enough spot to attempt to pass another vehicle, the loose gravel can cause cars to slip down the side of the road into the canyon below. North Yungas Road North Yungas Road is a 12 foot wide path cut into the side of the Cordillera Oriental Mountain chain that is responsible for up to 300 tragedies a year. The road is one of the longest stretches of continuous downhill road in the world, dropping over 3,650 meters. Built by prisoners in the 1930's, one side of the road is solid rock the other side is an almost 2,000 foot drop. And the best thing about Bolivia is that they drive on the left hand side of the road, giving you a vertigo inducing view of that drop the entire drive. 4 James Dalton Highway The James Dalton Highway is a 414-mile gravel highway built in 1974 as a supply route for the Trans-Alaska Pipeline system. What makes this stretch of road so dangerous? Could be that you're driving through the Alaskan wilderness on one of the longest stretches of road without any kind of service. That means no gas stations, restaurants, hotels, absolutely nothing but you and your thoughts. Temperatures reach far below zero. This road is so remote and dangerous, it's suggested you bring survival gear. Karakoram Highway, Pakistan The KKH is purported to be the highest paved international road in the world connecting China and Pakistan through the Khunerab pass. The road stretches over 800 miles but is only paved on the China side of the border. Some of the challenges that this road has to offer are altitude sickness, snow, flash floods as well as avalanches and landslides. With a work wall on one side and no barrier on the other, at times the road is so sketchy that at times your wheels are hanging just above the precipice. Trollstigen Known as The Troll's path, this road in Norway is one of its most visited attractions and challenging. Prepare to white knuckle your steering wheel while navigating through 11 intense hairpin turns and up and down steep inclines. The one lane road is in horrible condition. It is at its most challenging at night and during inclimate weather. If you're brave enough to venture to the summit, a viewing bridge awaits you offering you a spectacular view of the road and Stigfossen waterfall. Atlantic road Just over 5 miles long, this stretch of highway in Norway where land meets ocean, is both awe-inspiring and terrifying. The road, like a roller coaster with its 8 Bridges connects a chain of Norwegian Islands. Waves are constantly crashing over the bridge causing cars to hydroplane.

The Trans-Alaska Pipeline Documentary - Films The Trans-Alaska Pipeline System (TAPS) includes the trans-Alaska crude-oil pipe, 12 pump terminals, a number of hundred miles of feeder pipelines, and also the Valdez Marine Terminal. TAPS is among the world's biggest pipeline systems. It is commonly called the Alaska pipe, trans-Alaska pipeline, or Alyeska pipeline, (or the pipeline as described in Alaska), yet those terms technically apply only to the 800 miles (1,287 km) of the pipeline with the diameter of 48 inches (122 cm) that conveys oil from Prudhoe Bay, to Valdez, Alaska. The crude oil pipeline is independently owned by the Alyeska Pipeline Service Company. The pipeline was created in between 1974 and also 1977 after the 1973 oil crisis caused a sharp rise in oil rates in the Usa. This rise made expedition of the Prudhoe Bay oil area financially viable. Environmental, lawful, as well as political arguments followed the discovery of oil at Prudhoe Bay in 1968, as well as the pipeline was developed just after the oil situation produced the passage of legislation made to eliminate legal challenges to the task.
