Caucasus's strategic importance
 
05:07
The US interests in the Caucasus are related to the Azerbaijani and Georgian geographical positions, natural resources, economic influence, energy routes and the Afghanistan Plan. The indispensable strategic position of Azerbaijan makes the country unique. As the country is located between Russia and Iran it serves as a transit state but also a buffer zone for the two. No other country can offer the United States a stronghold that can play a double role. Now consider the economic influence and natural resources of the country and the importance of Azerbaijan increases. Add to this the alternative energy route for Europe that passes through Azerbaijan and Georgia. Then think of the crucial role Azerbaijan plays in the Northern Distribution Network, and the immense value of Azerbaijan and Georgia for the United States is revealed.

BP Signs 30-Year Deal with Azerbaijan For Caspian Sea Gas
 
00:39
British oil group BP signed a deal with Azerbaijan on Thursday to explore and develop a big Caspian Sea gas field, cementing the oil giant's leading position in the energy-rich former Soviet republic. The 30-year agreement on the deepwater Shafag-Asiman field was signed in the presence of new BP chief executive Bob Dudley and was his first deal since taking the helm earlier this month after the Gulf of Mexico oil spill disaster forced out his predecessor Tony Hayward.

At the end of 1990s, the American Unocal Corporation considered in addition to the Trans-Afghanistan Gas Pipeline building also a 1,000 miles (1,600 km) long 1,000,000 barrels per day (~5.0×10^7 t/a) oil pipeline to link Türkmenabat (former Chardzou), Turkmenistan to Pakistan's Arabian Sea Coast. Through the Omsk (Russia) - Pavlodar (Kasakhstan) - Shymkent - Türkmenabat pipeline, it would provide a possible alternative export route for regional oil production from the Caspian Sea. The pipeline was expected to cost US$2.5 billion. However, due the high political risk and security concerns, this project was dismissed........................ The Trans-Afghanistan Pipeline (TAP or TAPI) is a proposed natural gas pipeline being developed by the Asian Development Bank. The pipeline will transport Caspian Sea natural gas from Turkmenistan through Afghanistan into Pakistan and then to India. Proponents of the project see it as a modern continuation of the Silk Road. The Afghan government is expected to receive 8% of the project's revenue......................... The 1,680 kilometres (1,040 mi) pipeline will run from the Dauletabad gas field to Afghanistan. From there TAPI will be constructed alongside the highway running from Herat to Kandahar, and then via Quetta and Multan in Pakistan. The final destination of the pipeline will be the Indian town of Fazilka, near the border between Pakistan and India.................... List of oil pipelines................

Oil Odyssey
 
06:01
THEY SAID IT COULDN'T BE DONE! Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan, that is—the 1765 kilometer (1200 mile) 'Pipeline to Nowhere' that came on line July 13, 2006, thus linking the hydrocarbon riches of Azerbaijan on the western shores of Caspian Sea to the Turkish deep-water port of Ceyhan on the eastern Mediterranean. While endlessly talked, by the year 1999, there was not only no BTC development on the ground--there was not even a real BTC project map. Indeed, by the Spring of 2000, the idea of the BTC seemed to be a bust. Then, out of the blue, there arrived a BTC project proposal so zany that the leadership of Azerbaijan had to take it seriously. Specifically, the concept was to deliver the first symbolic barrel of Caspian crude down the BTC route via Soviet-era, three-wheeler motorcycles... There were quite a few folks who regarded the self-styled 'Oil Odyssey' as too strange and dangerous to risk association. But one man liked what he heard and gave the Oil Odyssey his full support. That man was the late, great President of Azerbaijan, Heydar Aliyev. This film, drawn from the combined 'Oil Odyssey' adventures of the years 2000, 2001 and 2002, is dedicated to his memory—and to his imagination.

Russian-Iranian Relations in the Obama Era part 1 of 7
 
09:07
The Middle East Institute is proud to host Dr. Mark Katz, professor at George Mason University, for a discussion of current relations between Iran and Russia. The Obama Administration has attempted to improve US relations both with both countries. However, neither Tehran nor Moscow has responded favorably toward the new administration's initiatives. While Tehran and Moscow continue to distrust Washington, they also distrust each other. In his talk, Katz will discuss Moscows views on the Iranian nuclear issue and Security Council sanctions, current Iranian political unrest, Irans prospects as a major emerging gas exporter and transit route from the Caspian Basin, and the prospects for an Iranian-American rapprochement. He will also discuss Tehrans views of Russian policy on these issues. Despite shared antipathy toward the United States, he notes that the issues dividing Moscow and Tehran are sufficiently serious that the prospects for increased collaboration between them appear quite limited.

John Roberts - 'Pipeline Politics: The Caspian and Global Energy Security'
 
01:04:05
About the Topic: The landlocked Caspian states - Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan - lie at the heart of the 21st century's great energy dilemma: how to satisfy the industrialized world's huge appetite while slaking the tremendous thirst of the new industrial giants China, India and Russia. Multi-billion-dollar pipelines are being built, planned, or expanded to carry Caspian oil and gas to all these markets. In this presentation, John Roberts, an Energy Security Specialist with Platts will set the ongoing saga of Caspian pipeline politics against the background of global energy security. About the Speaker: John M. Roberts is Energy Security Specialist with Platts, a leading independent source of energy information. His latest study, Pipeline Politics: The Caspian and Global Energy Security, is due to be published in May 2010 by the UKs Royal Institute of International Relations. His reporting career spans over 40 years and he is a frequent commentator on global energy issues on BBC television and radio and an acknowledged expert on Caspian and European pipelines. Mr Roberts has also given testimony to UK parliamentary committees on the Russian and Caspian roles in global energy security and on Persian Gulf security issues. He is a graduate of the University of Sussex (UK) with a bachelor's with honors in International Relations in the School of African & Asian Studies.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Azerbaijan [Baku, Nov 17,2010]
 
00:43
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad praises the Islamic Republic's growing ties with Azerbaijan, saying the two countries share common positions on mutual and international issues. "Despite efforts by ill-wishers, Iran and Azerbaijan have a common understanding of international issues and even bilateral matters. This is a unique opportunity for strengthening relations between the two countries," said President Ahmadinejad in a Wednesday meeting with Azeri Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov in Baku, quoted by IRNA. He added that Tehran and Baku have great potentials that can be utilized towards boosting stability and security in both countries as well as the entire region. The Iranian chief executive pointed to meager volume of economic exchanges between Iran and Azerbaijan despite their high capabilities and said the two sides enjoy great capacity for cooperating in the fields of industry, agriculture and trade. "An increase in joint ventures in a variety of fields, particularly in energy and transportation, will serve the interest of regional security," President Ahmadinejad said. The Azerbaijani minister, for his part, called for the expansion of relations with the Islamic Republic and said his country regards the climbing power and influence of Iran in political and defensive fields as favorable to the interests of Azarbaijan as well. "Iran is an influential country in the region which can play a leading role in resolving regional problems and establishing security and stability," Mammadyarov said. President Ahmadinejad arrived in the Azeri capital of Baku on Wednesday to attend the third meeting of the leaders of Caspian littoral states to negotiate the legal regime of the sea and to discuss expanding ties with Azeri officials. Despite extensive negotiations, the legal status of the Caspian Sea has been unclear among the sea's five littoral states --Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Russia and Turkmenistan --since the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991. The Caspian Sea legal regime is based on two agreements signed between Iran and the Soviet Union in 1921 and 1940. Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan -- the three new littoral states established after the collapse of Soviet Russia -- do not recognize the prior treaties, triggering a debate on the future status of the sea.

Entry from: Baku, Azerbaijan Entry Title: "Across Azerbaijan and the Caspian Sea" Entry: "When we saw that the tour went to Azerbaijan, we had no idea what to expect, as we knew just about nothing about it. After doing some reading, we learnt that from the 6th century BC it was part of the Persian Empire. Around AD325 it adopted Christianity, and Islam became the major religion from the 7th century. A classic era of Azeri culture bloomed in the 12th century, however in the 13th century the cities were destroyed by the Mongols, Timur (Tamerlane) and assorted earthquakes. The Russians started annexing Muslim khanates in the early 18th century. In the early 19th century the Russians encouraged immigration of Christians from Russia, Germans from Wurtemburg and Armenians, This indirectly sowed the seeds of ethnic conflicts that broke out in 1905, 1918 and 1989. Petroleum was discovered in the area, and by 1905 Baku (the capital) was supplying half the world's oil. Immense wealth was created and a cultural renaissance bloomed. But appalling conditions for oil workers, exploited by Stalin, resulted in several horrific inter-ethnic clashes. Azerbaijan became part of the USSR, until its independence in 1991. Tit-for-tat ethnic squabbles between Armenians and Azeris over the status of Nagorno-Karabakh bubbled over into virtual ethnic cleansing, until a cease-fire agreement was signed in May 1994. However around 13% of Azerbaijan's territory remained under Armenian occupation, with around 800,000 Azeris left homeless or displaced. Today Australia's travel warnings advise to stay away from Nagorno-Karabakh. Azerbaijan's population is nearly 8 million, nearly 2 million of which live in the capital, Baku. Heydar Aliyev is known as Azerbaijan's "National Leader", though he died in 2003, aged 80. His photos are everywhere on billboards in the country. His son Ilham took over after he died, and although he was little known when he took over, the people seem to think he is doing an OK job. We have a six-day visa, but the truck only has a 3-day transit visa, so we have to make fairly quick time to Baku, so that the truck is in customs (for the boat trip over the Caspian Sea to Turkmenistan) before the three days are up. Friday 13th June The Azerbaijan border- Caravansarai at Saki After the border, the countryside remains the same, but the houses change, a lot more metal in the roofing, and elaborate ridge capping, with crescent motifs. The place looks generally more prosperous, with walls "beautified" with black spots on the white walls (well, a photo would explain better!). It was a fair way to the usual post-border police check, near a large braided river, with a horrendously smoking chimney. The mountains to the left are getting lower and further away, with large white clouds above. The land is getting drier, particularly to the south, now broad acre grain growing, with harvesting by mechanical harvesters already occurring. Small towns in the valley, with greenery and Lombardy poplars. Turn off the main road, and come to a large, ornate to the point of gaudy, striped stone double gate, which is the portal for the town of Saki, still 10 km away, up on the sloping gravel fan from an alpine valley.

End Time Prophecies in May and What is to Come Now - Iran, Russia, Caspian Sea, Set Aflame

If they retaliate, we will retaliate back and Russia will protect Iran because of the Caspian Sea that it borders. This Sea is the Prostitute for gold and silver. Rev.16-18 However, Iran would rather set it aflame first than to let us get the natural gas which was found in the Caspian Sea. These are the prophecies that came to me than and now.

Iran (Persian: ایران , officially the Islamic Republic of Iran is a country in Central Eurasia[8] and/or Western Asia. The name Iran has been in use natively since the Sassanian era and came into use internationally in 1935, before which the country was widely known as Persia. Both Persia and Iran are used interchangeably in cultural contexts; however, Iran is the name used officially in political contexts. The name Iran is a cognate of Aryan, and means "Land of the Aryans". The 18th largest country in the world in terms of area at 1,648,195 km², Iran has a population of over 74 million. It is a country of particular geostrategic significance owing to its location in the Middle East and central Eurasia. Iran is bordered on the north by Armenia, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan. As Iran is a littoral state of the Caspian Sea, which is an inland sea and condominium, Kazakhstan and Russia are also Iran's direct neighbors to the north. Iran is bordered on the east by Afghanistan and Pakistan, on the south by the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman, on the west by Iraq and on the northwest by Turkey. Tehran is the capital, the country's largest city and the political, cultural, commercial and industrial center of the nation. Iran is a regional power, and holds an important position in international energy security and world economy as a result of its large reserves of petroleum and natural gas. Iran is home to one of the world's oldest continuous major civilizations. The first Iranian dynasty formed during the Elamite kingdom in 2800 BCE. The Iranian Medes unified Iran into an empire in 625 BCE. They were succeeded by the Iranian Achaemenid Empire, the Hellenic Seleucid Empire and two subsequent Iranian empires, the Parthians and the Sassanids, before the Muslim conquest in 651 CE. Iranian post-Islamic dynasties and empires expanded the Persian language and culture throughout the Iranian plateau. Early Iranian dynasties which re-asserted Iranian independence included the Tahirids, Saffarids, Samanids and Buyids. The blossoming of Persian literature, philosophy, medicine, astronomy, mathematics and art became major elements of Muslim civilization and started with the Saffarids and Samanids. Iran was once again reunified as an independent state in 1501 by the Safavid dynasty[3]—who promoted Twelver Shi'a Islam as the official religion of their empire, marking one of the most important turning points in the history of Islam. "Persia's Constitutional Revolution" established the nation's first parliament in 1906, within a constitutional monarchy. Iran officially became an Islamic republic on 1 April 1979, following the Iranian Revolution. Iran is a founding member of the UN, NAM, OIC and OPEC. The political system of Iran, based on the 1979 constitution, comprises several intricately connected governing bodies. The highest state authority is the Supreme Leader. Shia Islam is the official religion and Persian is the official language

While Tehran and Moscow continue to distrust Washington, they also distrust each other. In his talk, Katz will discuss Moscows views on the Iranian nuclear issue and Security Council sanctions, current Iranian political unrest, Irans prospects as a major emerging gas exporter and transit route from the Caspian Basin, and the prospects for an Iranian-American rapprochement. He will also discuss Tehrans views of Russian policy on these issues.

Iranian ships are increasingly flying flags of convenience, as tougher international sanctions make it difficult for these ships to do business on the open seas. The sanctions target Iran's nuclear program. They are aimed at curbing Iran's import of tools and technology that Washington suspects is aimed at nuclear bomb-making. But Iranian shippers are finding safe harbor from the sanctions -- in Hong Kong. By registering as Hong Kong companies and Hong Kong vessels, these shippers can avoid inspection hassles and delays. ----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­ Daily videos brought to you by THE Taiwanese Animators behind the infamous Tiger Woods animation.
