TO COVER THE HUGE EUROPEAN ENERGY DEFICIT WHICH AMOUNTS TO 845 BILLION CUBIC METERS PER YEAR NATURAL GAS RESOURCES FROM EASTERN MEDITERRANEAN AND CRETE HAVE TO FIND THEIR WAY TO THE EUROPEAN MARKET EITHER BY LNG OR BY CONSTRUCTING 1-2 NATURAL GAS PIPELINES.IT MUST BE UNDERSTOOD THAT NEITHER RUSSIA NOR NORTH AFRICA CAN SATISFY THE EXCESS ENERGY NEEDS THAT EUROPE WILL HAVE AFTER 2020.-- From the http://probeinternational.org website:

Published on October 18, 2011

Energy experts tell the Mail that, given that prospects in Block 12 are looking good, now would be the optimal time to lay the groundwork for auctioning out the remaining blocks; success in the “Aphrodite” field would boost the value of the remaining blocks overnight.

“I suspect the government will hold back on announcing the second licensing round as much as possible, until they know what they’ve got in their hands,” said Peter Wallace, an energy consultant who has worked with most oil majors around the world.

“The question is, what next? How will the gas be exploited, marketed? They ought to get cracking.”

The main options available are: a pipeline from the Aphrodite prospect to Limassol; a pipeline from Israel to Cyprus and then onto the Greek mainland, exporting both Israeli and Cypriot gas to Europe; and a liquefaction plant on the island (land-based or offshore) to process and store the gas that would then be loaded onto tankers for export.

Israeli Company Interested In Cretan Gas

Executives of Israeli energy group Delek will visit Athens within the week to hold exploratory contacts with Greek authorities, sources told Capital.gr.

These contacts will mainly focus on business, but contacts with the Ministry of Environment, Energy and Climate Change shouldn’t be excluded.

The interest of Delek focuses on the area south of Crete, which could be used for research and production of hydrocarbons, according to maps presented by the ministry. The interest is not official, only exploratory will take place.

However, Capital.gr was told that executives of Avner Oil Exploration, a Delek’s subsidiary, would arrive in Athens. Avner and Delek Drilling are two Delek group companies, which hold the rights to exploit the much-talked deposits in Eastern Mediterranean, along with Ratio Oil and American Noble Energy. Moreover, Delek has indirect involvement in Cyprus, as it holds a stake of 5% in Noble Energy.

Under the new law on hydrocarbons and new regulations, promoted by Deputy Energy Minister G.Maniatis, there are three options for research and production of oil. The interest bids are assessed, and the ministry issues an invitation within 90 days.

Ministry has made no formal comments regarding the potential interest of specific companies in the area south of Crete. However, G.Maniatis said recentrly that there is liveliness in the area and there might be drilling by the end of 2012.

Let us hope the governments of Greece and Cyprus coordinate things properly with Israel and the EU. I am sure the EU would be interested to contribute to the cost of the pipe lines.

Another daft and immature comment by a selfish Greek nationalist!

Does anyone else see the childish pattern followed by her, Yialoser, Kimon, etc?

All they’ve got on offer in this forum is spite, gloating, ill feeling, and eternal strife!

Not happy with natural progress GR!? You see, all those sea-journeys our ancestors made, to and fro from the Peloponnese to Cyprus - to trade, co-operate, exchange etc - where just the preparation for all this! :D

Mindful Enosis through the EU and now Physical Enosis through our bountiful mother Gaea ...
