East Med pipeline possible says Netanyahu

first_imgTHE East Med pipeline taking gas to Europe from reserves in Israel, Cyprus and south of Cyprus was a visible possibility, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu  said in an interview published on Sunday.In an exclusive interview with Kathimerini newspaper, Netanyahu, said that if the pipeline became a reality, it would have tremendous prospects.President Nicos Anastasiades, Netanyahu, and Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, who met on Thursday in Thessaloniki for their fourth trilateral Summit, said in a declaration issued afterwards they would speed up plans for the development of a pipeline channelling gas to Europe from newly discovered east Mediterranean reserves.European governments and Israel agreed in April to explore the possibility of a Mediterranean pipeline project to carry natural gas from Israel to Europe, setting a target date of 2025 for completion.The 2,000-km pipeline, known as the East Med Pipeline, would link gas fields in the Israel and Cyprus EEZ with Greece and possibly Italy, at an estimated cost of €6 billion.Netanyahu said that Israel had significant, proven gas reserves, and smaller ones also proven, but significant reserves were in Cyprus, and probably also off the coast of Crete. He said: “So, we are talking about large stocks that can reach the European market. If we join forces, it will cost the companies concerned a lot less to build a pipeline than to build one for each field. This obviously sounds reasonable.”Commenting on whether he was concerned about any tension in the region that might be caused by Turkey, when drilling begins in the Cyprus EEZ, Netanyahu said he always hoped “the issues will be resolved peacefully”.As to the settlement of the Cyprus problem, Netanyahu said that it’s been 44 years. “If they can start and finish it (settlement talks) in the next four months, we will be happy, believe me”.The Israeli Prime Minister believed there was enough gas to support multiple pipelines. Even though the East Med was considered impossible a year and a half ago, he said, the Greek-Italian company that did the initial survey re-estimated that it was feasible. It would do the exercise again and if the estimates were confirmed, work on building the pipeline would begin soon after.Israel and to a lesser extent Cyprus are thought to be sitting on vast quantities of natural gas deposits.Israel has discovered more than 900 billion cubic metres (bcm) of gas offshore, with some studies pointing to another 2,200 bcm waiting to be tapped. Apart from the European market, Israel was exploring the possibilities of exporting its gas to Turkey, Egypt and Jordan.Cyprus’ Aphrodite gas field has proven deposits of 128 bcm and drilling in other plots is scheduled to begin next month, despite warnings by Turkey.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

Record entries for Stelios awards conference in October

first_imgTHE number of applications received for the Sir Stelios Hadji-Ioannou 2017 Bi-Communal Awards in Cyprus has hit a record high, it was announced on Wednesday.At the close of applications, 424 teams made up of 848 people who have applied with a partner from the other community — either Greek Cypriot or Turkish Cypriot — could win one of 75 prizes of €10,000 in cash from the Stelios Philanthropic Foundation (www.Stelios.org).This is the ninth consecutive year that the awards are taking place in Cyprus.The winners will be announced at a ceremony in Nicosia at the Filoxenia conference centre http://www.fcc.com.cy/  on Friday October 20, at 10am.All 848 applicants will be invited to participate at a special conference and discussion to explore solutions to the Cyprus problem. This year’s ceremony is designed to give some of the winners “air time” to express their views about the division of the island and how they could see a solution working between the two communities.Sir Stelios will extend invitations to all political leaders and dignitaries from both communities to attend as a matter of courtesy, but the main speakers at the conference will be the winners of the awards.“It is now clear to me that the attitude of all Cypriots on the island towards the other community is changing in a positive and favourable direction,” Sir Stelios said. “This positive change comes despite the recent breakdown of the talks at Crans Montana in Switzerland. Our objective as a charity remains for the last nine years to continue to encourage positive co-operation between the ‘real people’ of the two communities in  Cyprus in order to ensure lasting peace on the island. I hope the politicians will follow the attitude of the ‘real people’ in due course…”You May LikeCity BeautyDo This To Fix Sagging Jowls Without SurgeryCity BeautyUndoHearClearRowland Heights Seniors With Hearing Loss Are In For a Big SurpriseHearClearUndoGundry MD Vital Reds SupplementCan’t Release?

Municipality defends Eleftheria Square tactile paving installation

first_imgNicosia municipality rejected suggestions on Tuesday that tactile paving — usually used to guide people with impaired vision — on a stretch of the Eleftheria Square had been installed improperly with lampposts obstructing the path.The municipality, which has been under constant fire over delays in completing the square, was forced to issue a statement after fresh criticism over the installation of tactile paving on Costakis Pantelides Street, which links the square with the bus terminal.Photos on social media showed a stretch paved with tactile tiles, used to guide visually impaired people, with lampposts fitted at regular intervals along the route.In a post on its Facebook page, the local authority said the tiles had been properly installed.“Tactile marking on Costakis Pantelides Street on the same line with benches and lampposts is not a path for visually impaired people,” the municipality said.It said that the road is shared space between pedestrians and vehicles constructed on the same level.The tactile paving had been installed to alert people with disabilities that they were entering a stretch used by motorists, the municipality said, providing a photo from London where the same concept had been used.Even so, some observers pointed out that the tiles used on the square – mostly raised, flat-topped bars – were normally used as guidance tactile whereas blister tactile was used on even surfaces to warn visually impaired people that they were at the end of the footway and there was a carriageway ahead.South Kensington, London You May LikeIQgal7 Early Warning Signs of Cancer Women Shouldn’t IgnoreIQgalUndoForReasonAccessories To Liven Up Your Summer OutfitsForReasonUndoLowerMyBillsPay Off Your House At A Furious Pace If You Owe Less Than $625kLowerMyBillsUndo Two of serial killer’s victims buried in PhilippinesUndoHouse rejects presidential veto over repossession lawUndoBritish woman who claimed gang-rape taken to courtUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
