chess is not your game is it bafiduimmu. when you take a galon of anything out of the sea is the checkmate. faced with terkish firepower assuming that america will not want to upset terkey is the day decisions are made. signitures on paper are not worth the paper they are written on. you would think people learn from other peoples mistakes but allas not.

It seems you have everything worked out!

For your information, Australia is capable enough to strike on Turkish Soil. Furthermore, I think you might find that the US will never piss Australia off.

And if that is not enough, we are talking about joint ventures between Woodside and US/Israeli firms.

But since you have it all worked out, please attack Woodside interests. Come on Turkey! I beg you! Please put Australia in its place.

You guys soiled your sovraka when Israel boarded the MAVI. You can rest assured that the Israelis and Americans will give Australia their every support, against Turkey.

You guys are just all talk but no walk.

Actions speak louder. Please put Noble, Delek and Woodside in their place and let us see what happens!

No not exactly.

I look forward to Turkey's attack on Woodside! Please let me know when, because I need to cook some popcorn and sit on my sofa and tune into CNN! :lol:

Out of interest would your " cultural" standards include forced marriages,
honour killings and the occasional stoning to death ?
Some culture to be proud off. Mate if you were a Turkish Cypriot, and you are not, you would be embarrassed at Turkeys human rights record. By the way, Israel is a superpower !!

Gone are the days when little old Cyprus was an easy prey !!

Boys, boys, boys.... and yero....

Enough with this talk of war and stonings to death (even though in Bordo's case it would be well deserved for his Blasphemy)

We've all seen CY get quietly on with developing its EEZ in the last couple of years despite all the very loud and blustery threats from Turkey and its curious attempts to prospect for HCs with the Sardine Trawler Piri Piri (or whatever it was called) and the laughable drilling at Occupied Syngrassi which only succeeded in screwing up the water table there.

So why wage a war that's already been won by CY...???

... and the next 18 months or so will see Total, Kogas and ENI join in the fun, with drillings in Blocks 2,3,9 and 11.

For me, the Gas is only part of the story Bill. It is just a battle within the war. The war is won when Turkey pisses off!

It is Vordo that has been talking it up. He seems to think Turkey can attack Cyprus and Greece and on top of that the megalomaniac seems to think he could attack Israel and Australian interests and he thinks Turkey is strong enough to get away with it.

If these Turks actually practice what the preach, it will be the best thing for Cyprus! But unfortunately these cowards will only walk the walk when they are guaranteed victory against practically defenceless minnows like Cyprus.

Yes they are so strong invading a country of 800K. :roll:

This Gas has the potential to even up the odds but what are the chances of Turkey picking a fight with someone her size?

However, Nobel or Delek are divided on Woodside. Delek prefers the cheaper alternative of exporting gas to nearby Turkey, whereas Woodside's expertise is liquefied natural gas and markets in the Far East. Noble, backed by Ratio, still favors the Australian company.

The next item on the agenda is where to site the gas export facilities. In the last several months, both the Leviathan partners and the government have reportedly reached the conclusion that developing them on dry land either in Israel or Cyprus will be impossible.

Finding 1,000 dunams on the Israeli coast to build the facility would run up against environmental obstacles and public opposition. Cyprus, meanwhile, is a major credit risk, its gas reserves are yet proven and the security establishment opposes shipping a major natural resource through the island country.

Over the next few weeks, the Leviathan partners will likely be discussing a short- and long-term alternative. The first would be shipping the gas by undersea pipeline to Turkey, a plan supported by Jerusalem for geopolitical reasons. Such a pipeline could transport eight to 10 billion cubic meters of gas annually.

Assuming that all the political and regulatory obstacles can be overcome, the pipeline would cost about $5 billion and take three years to complete. It would generate income of $3 billion to $4 billion annually for the Leviathan partners and provide the cash flow to help finance the long-term export facility, a floating LNG terminal.

An FLNG facility would solve the problem of locating the facility on land, but it would cost in the range of $4 billion to $5 billion to build a terminal capable of exporting $5 billion of gas annually. Woodside's expertise in the field would be critical.
