Israel To Replace Russia Gas For The EU

 

As the war in Ukraine rages on, the European Union has been seeking alternative sources of natural gas and had chosen Tel Aviv as one of the providers to replace Russia. Yet, by signing a deal with both Israel and Egypt to make this possible, the EU could have encouraged a new Israel-Lebanon war.

Amidst rising tensions between Tel Aviv and Beirut over the resource rich Karish field, located in a disputed maritime zone, the European Union inked a new deal with Israel and Egypt to add another source of natural gas to its list of suppliers. The EU-Israel deal, signed back in July, will see Israel transport natural gas to Egypt, where Cairo will use its liquified natural gas (LNG) infrastructure to refine the gas, from their shipping it across the Mediterranean into Europe.
 

Currently, Israel’s natural gas rate of extraction does not serve to meet the EU’s needs alone, and never can. However, Israel has seen this as an opportunity to follow through on its recent announcement to double its natural gas output, largely through the exploitation of previously untouched oil and gas fields off the coast of occupied Palestine and Lebanon. One of the key fields, which Israel planned to begin extracting from in mid-September, was the disputed Karish field.
 

The Karish field, which lies off the coast of southern Lebanon and occupied Palestine, is claimed by the Israelis to be within Israel’s “exclusive economic zone”, an assertion that is backed by the United States Government. Yet Lebanon sees this as incorrect and was outraged in early June when Israel allowed for the London-based Energean company to enter the Karish field area by ship. First, the Lebanese government called this a provocative move and warned Israel that the zone was disputed, until the conclusion of ongoing maritime border disputes. Then, Lebanese Hezbollah also weighed in on the issue. In a speech delivered by Hezbollah’s secretary general, Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah, a threat was directly issued to the Israelis and the Energean company, that Hezbollah will not hesitate to respond by force to Israeli provocations against Lebanon. Indirect Israel-Lebanon negotiations over maritime borders were revived in 2020, with US mediation.
 

The maritime border dispute is a matter of economic life or death for Lebanon, currently suffering the worst economic crisis in its history. To negotiate successfully for what is known as ‘Line 29’ (meaning securing a chunk of Karish field for Lebanon) will mean that the Lebanese will have access to a known oil and gas-rich field that could quite literally flip their economic crisis upside down. However, the US intermediary that heads up the negotiations between both sides, Amos Hochstein, is staunchly pro-Israel and sees the line 29 proposal as a “non-starter”. That is why another proposal, which has now seen support from both sides, which essentially trades Karish field for the Qana field to its north, has become the negotiating position seemingly agreed upon by both Tel Aviv and Beirut.

 

The issue of Israel supplying the EU with natural gas introduces a number of factors to consider. Firstly, Egypt is suffering its own economic crisis, and Cairo securing this deal allows it to head towards its objective of becoming a gas trading hub. Egypt’s ambitions effect Lebanon’s decisions, regarding targeting Israeli occupied oil and gas fields in response to provocations, since the US Government making Cairo’s own gas supply deal with Lebanon more difficult is a real possibility. After four months of delays, Lebanon was set to sign a deal, on June 21, which would have secured the import of Egyptian gas, in an attempt to help solve the Lebanese electricity crisis. The biggest problem that arose was that the gas must be transported through Jordan and then Syria, to reach Lebanon. Ultimately it is up to a decision by the US Government as to whether they will allow the gas to be imported to Lebanon through Syrian territory, allowing amendments to bypass their own “Caesar Act” sanctions against Damascus. If Lebanon enters a conflict with Israel, the US may end up destroying Lebanon’s deal to import Egyptian gas altogether and even an additional deal that will see Jordan provide Lebanon with electricity supplies. So far, the planned June 21 deal has been dropped due to Washington refusing to budge on the issue of amending sanctions — something it had already pledged to do — forcing Lebanon to resort to the Islamic Republic of Iran to become their new supplier.
 

Another major factor is Russia. Moscow has clearly become less happy with the Israelis since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, due to Tel Aviv’s frequent siding with NATO. Now, Israel is openly seeking to become part of a number of Russian gas alternatives for the Europeans. Russia has been making moves inside Syria recently that seemed to indicate that they are growing impatient with Israeli airstrikes against the Syrian military.

If it seems that Syria is going to get a Russian green light to begin taking tougher measures in response to routine illegal Israeli airstrikes against Syrian territory, Lebanon may well take note. Specifically, when it comes to Hezbollah, which is the primary force in defense of Lebanon’s sovereignty, they will be looking at all these factors to see whose backing they will have in any strikes against Israel, and who will be their enemies. These issues are important to consider when committing to a response to Israeli provocations.
 

It is clear at this point that Hezbollah has to use its capability to launch devastating attacks on Israel, as leverage, in order to secure Lebanon a strong position when negotiating its maritime borders. Israel, on the other hand, clearly has the backing of the United States and the EU in its quest to set the narrative on the ground, meaning that they will attempt secure the Karish field for themselves prior to the negotiation’s ending. It has been proven at this point, that the only way to combat Israel’s illegal extraction of resources from Karish field, is with the threat of using armed force, which would have a devastating effect. However, Lebanese Hezbollah cannot simply launch an offensive without solid ground and considers the backlash that their defensive measures may cause on the Lebanese State in the short run. The reason why this has to be a consideration and part of the calculation, is because the West desperately seeks to spark civil war in Lebanon. If the Christian fascist groups — supported by Saudi Arabia and Israel — are given legitimacy in their arguments against Hezbollah, this could cause unrest, which will be abused and manipulated by outside forces. A war with Israel is a piece of cake compared to a civil war. Hezbollah is an extremely pragmatic organization and will be studying all of what has been mentioned above, meaning that if all the external factors align in their favor, Israel will be receiving a large military blow in the near future.

As Baltic pipeline leaks methane, scientists point to bigger problem


Data shows that the methane leak from a damaged pipeline in the Baltic Sea is one of the largest recorded to date. But scientists say that large gas leaks are common and are often downplayed by corporations and governments. 

By Cathy Bussewitz Associated Press
September 30, 2022|NEW YORK

Scientists have been measuring the scale of the massive methane leak from damaged pipelines in the Baltic Sea, with the latest figures equating the levels of gas escaping to the annual emissions of some whole countries. It is believed to be the single biggest recorded gas leak over a short period of time.

But as serious as the methane escaping from ruptured pipelines may be, there are alarming incidents of massive methane releases around the world frequently.

A study released Thursday by scientists at the University of Michigan found that flaring releases five times more methane in the United States than previously thought. Flares, they found, are often unlit or not working, allowing gas to escape directly into the atmosphere.

Yes its called shifting ground movement plates...

No blame game the cover up story is distractions..

Methane is released from under the plates..

Baltic pipeline methane leak is part of larger problem, scientists say - CSMonitor.com

NATO once ‘lost’ drone under
Nord Stream – Gazprom

An unmanned submarine fitted with an explosive device ended up under the pipeline back in 2015, Russian energy giant claims

The US-led NATO military bloc once managed to “lose” an armed underwater drone right under the Nord Stream pipeline, a Gazprom spokesman has claimed.
 

“On November 6, 2015, a NATO underwater mine destroyer ‘Seafox’ was discovered during a scheduled visual inspection of the Nord Stream gas pipeline,” Sergey Kupriyanov told Rossiya 24 on Monday.
 

The device was found resting on the seabed at a depth of 40m between the Nord Stream pipelines, almost directly under one of them, Kupriyanov said. The incident, which received limited media coverage at the time, prompted a brief halt in gas deliveries, while the drone was ultimately recovered by the Swedish military.

 

Back then, the US-led bloc said it had “lost” the device during military drills, the spokesman claimed. The German-made drone carries a 1.4kg shaped-charge warhead, which is intended for destroying sunken unexploded munitions and mines, according to publicly available data.
 

“That’s NATO drills for you, when a military-grade explosive device ends up straight under our pipeline,” Kupriyanov concluded.

 

Sweden will not share Nord Stream probe findings with Russia – PMREAD MORE: Sweden will not share Nord Stream probe findings with Russia – PM

The remarks come in the aftermath of the apparent sabotage attacks on the Nord Stream pipeline system. The Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines both abruptly lost pressure on September 26, following a series of powerful underwater explosions off the Danish island of Bornholm. The ruptures caused massive gas leaks into the open sea and rendered the pipelines inoperable.
 

While Moscow has called for an international – with its own participation – probe into the incident, other parties appear to be reluctant to carry out such an investigation. Sweden, for instance, has already explicitly stated it will not share the results of its investigation into the explosion with Moscow.
 

“In Sweden, our preliminary investigations are confidential, and that, of course, also applies in this case,” Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson told reporters on Monday.
 

Russian President Vladimir Putin has already blamed the “the Anglo-Saxons,” a Russian colloquialism for the US-UK alliance, of being behind the blasts, which Moscow described as an “act of international terrorism.” Speaking during a meeting of the Russian Security Council on Monday, Putin said that “we all know well who the ultimate beneficiary of this crime is.”

EU countries withdraw from joint Nord Stream explosions probe – media

Sweden, Denmark and Germany will conduct investigations into the incident separately, broadcaster ARD reports
 

EU countries withdraw from joint Nord Stream explosions probe – media

Stockholm, Copenhagen and Berlin have refused to carry out a joint investigation into the alleged sabotage of the Nord Stream gas pipelines, news portal Tagesschau, owned by ARD media, reported on Friday.
 

According to the report, the three nations “actually wanted to investigate the destruction of the pipelines together and to find out who is responsible. But that’s not the case now.” 
 

The three countries’ joint investigation team has been disbanded, according to German government sources cited in the report. Sweden was the first to leave due to privacy concerns, and was followed by Denmark. “Now each country will conduct its investigation separately from the others.”
 

On Thursday, Russia’s foreign ministry summoned the ambassadors of Germany, Denmark and Sweden over their countries’ refusal to grant access to the investigation. Moscow said it wouldn’t recognize the results of the ongoing probe into the explosions that damaged the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines in late September unless its experts were allowed to take part.
 

If Russia’s calls for cooperation are ignored, Moscow will assume that the three European countries “have something to hide or [that] they are covering up the perpetrators of these terrorist attacks,” the ministry warned.

The warning comes after Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson announced on Monday that Stockholm would not share the results of its investigation into the Nord Stream explosions with Moscow.
 

Meanwhile, President Vladimir Putin hinted that despite the denial of access to the probe, “we all know well who the ultimate beneficiary of this crime is.” 
 

The Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines were rendered inoperable on September 26 following a series of powerful underwater explosions off the Danish island of Bornholm.
 

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken described the blasts as a “tremendous opportunity” for Europe “to once and for all remove dependence on Russian energy.”

Explosive-laden drone found near Nord Stream pipeline

 

Swedish authorities investigating the explosion that ripped holes in the Nord Stream gas pipelines reported on October 20 they had found an explosive laden drone on the seabed near the pipelines.

 

The Swedish armed forces were called in to remove and disarm the drone.

 

“We don't consider it to be dangerous to merchant vessels or the pipeline at this point,” Jesper Stolpe, Swedish Armed Forces spokesman, told Radio Sweden. The cable used to control the drone and to set off the explosive was cut, rendering the drone harmless, according to Stolpe.

 

The national identity of the drone has not been verified so far, as many countries use Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) of a similar construction, Stolpe said.

 

Swedish seismologists were the first to report several explosions near the pipelines, aftergas began to leak into the sea on the evening of September 26, raising the suspicion of sabotage.

 

The discovery of the still unidentified drone confirms those fears. Sweden has been conducting a joint investigation with Poland and Germany, however, despite requests to participate, Russia has been excluded. Sweden said this week that it has classified the results of the investigation on “national security” grounds.

 

It remains unclear who was behind the explosions, but the chief suspects, all of which have strong motives to destroy the pipelines, are Russia, the US, Ukraine and Poland. Russia has blamed the US and denied any involvement in blowing up its own multi-billion dollar pipelines, although technically the pipelines belong to Germany.

 

Previously it was argued that as the pipeline lies so deep in the sea that only countries with submarines could successfully carry out the attack, but use of a UUV considerably broadens the field of suspects.

 

The drone was found near one of the two strands of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline during a routine survey operation as part of the annual integrity assessment of the Nord Stream pipeline, Pipeline Journalreports.

 

The explosions rupture three of the four strands with one belonging to Nord Stream 2 remaining intact.

 

The sections of pipeline destroyed were in the Swedish Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) approximately 120 km away from the island of Gotland. The gas leak that emptied tonnes of methane into the atmosphere in what some have called the worst emissions disaster ever.

 

Sweden immediately imposed a 5km no-go zone around the leak on shipping, afraid of further explosions.

Explosion rocks major Russian gas pipeline

Three people have died in the incident in Central Russia, with at least one injured, local authorities say

 

image.jpeg.3733641dde3833acac5c4cf6481df93b.jpeg

 

An explosion has rocked a pipeline in Russia’s Chuvash Republic several hundred kilometers east of Moscow, causing a major fire, local officials said. The incident along the route, which is used to transport energy to Europe, killed at least three people and injured another one, while prompting gas prices in Europe to soar.

 

The local administration’s press service said the blast occurred along the Urengoy-Pomary-Uzhgorod pipeline. It added that the operating company had been conducting maintenance work on the conduit before the fire broke out.

 

Of the three dead and one injured, “all of them were working on the gas pipeline,” local emergency services confirmed.

 

The regional directorate of Russia’s Ministry of Emergency Situations said earlier that the fire was caused by a gas leak at an underground pipeline close to the village of Yambahtino. It added that it had sent several fire-fighting crews to the scene.

 

Oleg Nikolaev, the head of the Chuvash Republic, noted that the pipeline was used to deliver energy to Europe, and now it has been blocked off from two sides.

 

Videos posted on social media showed a large pillar of fire towering over nearby buildings. The Mash Telegram channel reported that locals said temperatures near the scene were so hot they were unable to approach their homes.

 

 

The incident prompted gas prices in Europe to spike, exceeding $1,250 per one thousand cubic meters, according to data from the ICE exchange. The pipeline serves as a route for transporting natural gas from Western Siberia to Europe via Ukraine.  

 

The 4,500 km conduit crosses the border between the two countries in Kursk Region at the town of Sudzha, which remains the only point through which the gas is still flowing to Europe via Ukraine amid fighting between Moscow’s and Kiev’s forces.
