Azerbaijan's gas to TAP into Europe - economy

The consortium developing Azerbaijan's vast gas reserves officially announced on Friday that it has... euronews, the most watched news channel in Europe Subscribe for your daily dose of international news, curated and explained:http://eurone.ws/10ZCK4a Euronews is available in 13 other languages: http://eurone.ws/17moBCU http://www.euronews.com/2013/06/28/azerbaijan-s-gas-to-tap-into-europe The consortium developing Azerbaijan's vast gas reserves officially announced on Friday that it has chosen the Trans Adriatic Pipeline - TAP - to ship natural gas to Europe. It was a major blow to the rival Nabucco West pipeline consortium which planned a different route further north. Europe is looking to Azeri gas to reduce its dependence on Russian supplies, which currently account for nearly a third of all EU gas imports. TAP will connect with a planned pipeline from the Caspian Sea fields through northern Turkey and then run through Greece and Albania to Italy for onward distribution through the rest of Europe. The project, which is fronted by Norway's Statoil, Swiss company AXPO and Germany's E.ON, is due to open in six years time. The pipeline is expected to pump six billion cubic metres of gas per year to consumers in energy-hungry Turkey and 10 billion each year to Europe. Nabucco West has said it is now considering reconfiguring to ship gas instead from fields in the Black Sea, off Romania through Hungary to Austria. The TAP announcement came as Russia's Gazprom was holding its annual general shareholders' meeting Chief Executive Alexei Miller, who said Gazprom will supply more natural gas through pipelines to Europe this year, was of the opinion that the TAP decision meant the death of the Nabucco project. "It doesn't exist more," he told reporters. Miller said the Russian state-run company's gas exports to Europe were up 10 percent between January and June after they fell last year by about seven percent due to weaker demand. However he expects profit this year to be down by as much as 10 percent due to rising taxes, lower growth in domestic gas prices and rebates.

BREAKING NEWS Iran Oil Rig Sinks with PEOPLE ON BOARD in Persian Gulf.
 
00:37
BREAKING NEWS Iran Oil Rig Sinks with PEOPLE ON BOARD in Persian Gulf SUBSCRIBE for updates The National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) (Persian: شرکت ملّی نفت ایران, Sherkat Melli Naft'e Iran‎), a government-owned corporation under the direction of the Ministry of Petroleum of Iran, is an oil and natural gas producer and distributor headquartered in Tehran. It was established in 1948.[2] NIOC ranks as the world's third largest oil company, after Saudi Arabia's state-owned Aramco.[3] and Gazprom. The NIOC is exclusively responsible for the exploration, extraction, transportation and exportation of crude oil, as well as sales of natural gas and liquefied natural gas (LNG). Having provided the domestic refineries and manufacturing plants with crude oil required for the petroleum products, the NIOC exports its surplus production according to commercial considerations in the framework of the quotas determined by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and at the prices prevalent in the international markets. The NIOC also signs some long term contracts on "buy-back" basis with foreign companies in order to exploit national oil fields and export its products. The NIOC exports natural gas and liquefied natural gas via the "National Iranian Gas Export Company".[2] NIOC's oil and gas reserves in early 2005 was as follows;[4] Recoverable liquid hydrocarbon reserves in early 2005, 136.99 billion barrels (21.780 km3) 10% of world's total. Recoverable gas reserves in early 2005, 28.17×1012 m3 (15% of world's total). Current NIOC production capacities include over 4 million barrels (640×103 m3) of crude oil and in excess of 500 million cubic meters of natural gas per day.[2] In 2008, the average extraction cost of oil was less than $5 per barrel. This does not include processing (refining) and distribution costs.[5] Iran's cumulative oil production has reached to 61 billion barrels (9.7×109 m3) by the end of 2007,[6] most of these volume produced after 1951, under the supervision of NIOC. Iran's overall export crude oil was valued at US$85 billion in 2010. In April 1951, the Majlis nationalised the Iranian oil industry by unanimous vote, and the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) was formed, displacing the AIOC.[11] The AIOC withdrew its management from Iran, and organised an effective worldwide embargo of Iranian oil. The British government, which owned the AIOC, contested the nationalisation at the International Court of Justice at The Hague, but its complaint was dismissed.[12] By spring of 1953, incoming US President Dwight D. Eisenhower authorised the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), to organise a coup against the Mossadeq government, known as the 1953 Iranian coup d'état.[13] In August 1953, the coup brought pro-Western general Fazlollah Zahedi as the new PM, along with the return of the Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi from his brief exile in Italy to Iran.[14] The anti-Mossadeq plan was orchestrated under the code-name 'Operation Ajax' by CIA, and 'Operation Boot' by SIS (MI6).[13][15][16] In 1954, the AIOC became the British Petroleum Company. The return of the shah did not mean that British Petroleum would be able to monopolise Iranian oil as before. Under the pressure from United States, British Petroleum reluctantly accepted membership in a consortium of companies, founded in October 1954, to bring back Iranian oil to the international market. It was incorporated in London as a holding company called 'Iranian Oil Participants Ltd' (IOP).[17][18] The founding members of IOP included British Petroleum (40%), Gulf (later Chevron, 8%), Royal Dutch Shell (14%), and Compagnie Française des Pétroles (later Total S.A., 6%). The four Aramco partners - Standard Oil of California (SoCal, later Chevron) - Standard Oil of New Jersey (later Exxon, then ExxonMobil) - Standard Oil Co. of New York (later Mobil, then ExxonMobil) - Texaco (later Chevron) - each held a 8% stake in the holding company.[9][17] All IOP members acknowledged that NIOC owned the oil and facilities in Iran, and IOP's role was to operate and manage on behalf of NIOC. To facilitate that, IOP established two operating entities incorporated in Netherlands, and both were delegated to NIOC.[17][18] Similar to the Saudi-Aramco "50/50" agreement of 1950,[19] the consortium agreed to share profits on a 50--50 basis with Iran, "but not to open its books to Iranian auditors or to allow Iranians onto its board of directors."[20][21] The negotiations leading to the creation of the consortium, during 1954-55, was considered as a feat of skillful diplomacy.[9] In Iran, IOP continued to operate until the Islamic Revolution in 1979. The new regime of Ayatollah Khomeini confiscated all of the company's assets in Iran. According to the company's Web site: Text Wikipedia

Rug processing in Zanjan زنجان, Iran

Zanjan ( Persian: زنجان, Azerbaijani: زنگان, Zәngan, Zәncan) is the capital of Zanjan Province in Iranian Azerbaijan. It lies 298 km north-west of Tehran on the main highway to Tabriz and Turkey and approximately 125 km from the Caspian Sea. Zanjan is known for its beautiful handcrafts such as knives, traditional sandals, called charoogh, and malileh, a handcraft made with silver wires. Zanjani artists make many things like various decorative dishes and their special covers as well as silver jewelry. In ancient times, Zanjan was known for its stainless and sharp knives. But this tradition is gradually becoming extinct by introduction of Chinese-made knives into the market which are far cheaper, more abundant and of course less artistic. Many villagers today are traditional carpet weavers, perhaps Zanjan's most popular handcraft. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zanjan,_Iran

Islamic conquest of Persia
 
11:20
Since the 1st century BC, the Romans and Parthians had waged a number of wars that lasted for the centuries. In fact these military campaigns outlasted the empires themselves. Both the Roman and Parthian Empires reformed and were replaced by the Byzantine and Sassanid Empires, respectively. These two new superpowers continued their territorial disputes and military confrontations for centuries. But the Sassanids and Byzantines also had various proxy wars, in which they attempted to start rebellions in the opponent's holdings. One example of this was the Byzantine client state the Ghassanids and the Sassanid client state the Lakhmids. These client states served as a buffer zone against the Southern Arab raiders. And both these client states were Arab in origin, but the Ghassanids were Christian Arabs whereas the Lakhmids aimed to unite all the Arabs under one kingdom. In fact the last independent ruler of the Lakhmids, Imru' al-Qais, claimed the title of "King of all the Arabs." This vision of Arab unity would not be realized for centuries, until the rise of Islam and the consolidation of the Rashidun Caliphate, in 632. Once the caliphate was established the Lakhmids were quick to join their Arab brethren. But this made the Sassanids very anxious, as they had lost their buffer zone and client state. And so the Sassanid rulers decided to stir up rebellions in the region. These provocations lead to the declaration of a Jihad against the Sassanid Persian Empire by Caliph Umar. At the time this seemed like an ant declaring war against a lion. That is how the Persians mistakenly perceived it.

02/04/2013 Iranian oil workers had to jump for their lives when part of a multi-million dollar oil platform began to sink into the Persian Gulf. ­New video of last week's sinking shows the workers running along the structure and diving into the water as the 'jacket' of the $40 million rig plunges under the waves. The rig was being installed in the South Pars field by Iran's POGC and the builder Iranian Marine Industrial which is controlled by the country's Revolutionary Guards, says Dow Jones newswires. Reuters reports the local Mehr news agency saying Iran had asked for foreign help to retrieve the oil rig from 80 meters down in the Gulf. Iran is faced with an import ban of key oil exploration technology, and has embarked on building its own equipment. http://LeakSource.wordpress.com http://twitter.com/LeakSourceNews

Azerbaijan or Republic of Azerbaijan is an important country of the Eurasian continent and it is the largest as well as the most populated region in South Caucasus. Azerbaijan is divided partially between Eastern Europe and Western Asia. On its eastern side lies the Caspian Sea, whilst the Russian Federation borders it on the north. Other countries which share boundaries with Azerbaijan are Georgia in the west and north-west, Armenia in the south-west and Iran in the south. The Azerbaijani exclave of Nakhchivan is bordered by Armenia to its north and east, while Iran lies to its south and south-west, and Turkey to its west. During the Nagorno-Karabakh War in 1994 seven districts of Azerbaijan in the southwest have been overpowered by Armenia. Many islands in the Caspian Sea are also part of the Republic of Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan if formed of 65 regions and 69 cities of which Baku is the capital. While Azerbaijani is the official language spoken, due to Russia's rule for so many years, Russian and Turkish languages are widely spoken. In some regions, people also converse in English, German and Arabic. Azerbaijan is a secular and unitary republic consisting mostly of Ethnic Azeri and Muslims who form a major part of its population. Orthodox Christians and Jews also play their own role in the form of minorities. Azerbaijan's economy mainly depends upon oil and natural gas production. Other industries that contribute to its economy include cotton and agricultural products. Pancakes, soups and bread form a major part of the daily cuisine of the Azerbaijani's. Meat and poultry features prominently in all the food preparations in the form of kebabs, minced meat, etc. Among the fruits, locally apples, cherries, grapes, melons, raspberries, plums and peaches are produced. Sweet black tea is a very popular drink among the locals.

Get in Your Tank And Fight! - http://goo.gl/shSQkf Play For FREE! ----------------------------------------­- An international consortium has begun commercially producing crude oil from an offshore field in the Caspian Sea. The joint venture says the first oil from the Kashagan field in Kazakhstan was produced on Wednesday from a depth of 4,000 meters. The consortium includes KaMunayGas of Kazakhstan, ExxonMobil of the US and INPEX Corporation of Japan. The venture says the field has an estimated reserve of 13 billion barrels. That's the equivalent of 10 years' worth of oil imported by Japan. The consortium has spent about 40 billion dollars to develop the field. Japan expects the field will help diversify the sources for its crude oil imports amid the worsening situation in the Middle East.

Iran unveils laser guided artillery shell only 5 nations in the world have this advanced technology.
 
02:51
Iran unveils another part of its military potential as the US and Israel continue their threats against Iran's nuclear facilities. The latest item unveiled by Iran's defense minister is a smart ammunition system titled "BASIR", its main objective is to enhance Iran's defense capability during military threats. Basir is an Iranian artillery fired laser-guided, 155 mm explosive projectile designed to destroy enemy tanks, vehicles and other moving or non-moving targets with high precision.[1] This weapon is similar in function with Russian Kransnopol or American M712 Copperhead. Basir put Iran among the five countries in the world with laser targeting technology.[2] These shells were unveiled on January 30, 2012, on the first day of the so-called "Daheye Fajr", a key point during the Islamic Revolution by defense minister Ahmad Vahidi. He later added that this system is very useful in mountainous areas. Iranian TV showed some footage of the weapon being fired from an HM 41 at land and sea targets. It has a reported range of 20 km.[3] The 30F39 Krasnopol is a Russian 152/155 mm cannon-launched, fin-stabilized, semi-automatic laser-guided, explosive projectile. It is intended to engage snall hard point ground targets such as tanks, self-propelled howitzers, or other high-value mobile targets. Russian weapons systems usually have a code-name assigned to them during development, usually using geographic features like lakes, rivers, or mountains. The weapon's project code-name refers to the village of Krasnopol in eastern Poland. The 2K25 Krasnopol complex[1] consists of the 30F39 guided shell; a 1D22, 1D20, or 1D15 laser target designator (LTD); and the 1A35 shot synchronization system. The laser designation system has a range of 5 km (3.1 mi), while the projectile itself has a range of 20 km (12 mi)[2] and a target seeker radius of 1 km (0.62 mi).[3] The system functions as follows. The complex's laser target designator / laser rangefinder is used to mark a target that has entered a pre-selected killzone. A guided shell is then fired. The firing unit uses their 1A35K command device to send a signal via a communications link confirming the firing of the projectile to the 1A35I observation post device at the battery command observation post. The laser target designator is then used to guide the round down to the target. Upon destruction of the initial target, the LTD operator shifts the designator to subsequent targets downwind (from the previous engagement) to reduce smoke and dust interference with the designator.[4] The original model of the Krasnopol was designed to be used with former Soviet-Bloc artillery systems of 152 mm (6.0 in), such as D-20, 2S3 Akatsiya, 2S19 (Msta-S), 2A65 (Msta-B). Krasnopol carries a 20.5 kg (45 lb) high explosive fragmentation warhead. The entire missile weighs 50 kg (110 lb). However, its length made it incompatible with the autoloader of the 2S19 152mm Self-Propelled Gun. The Krasnopol-Modernetya (or Krasnopol-M) ("Product-Improved Krasnopol") was made with a shorter length to enable it to be used with autoloader-equipped guns. It also comes in an alternate 155 mm (6.1 in) bore to allow it to be used with NATO-compatible systems like the M109A2/A6, M114A2, M198 (USA), G5, G6 (Republic of South Africa), FH77B (Sweden), and TRF1 (France). As distinct from conventional standard artillery projectiles which engage area targets, Krasnopol ensures destruction of individual targets from covered fire positions by a single shot without fire adjustment. Krasnopol is capable of hitting targets moving at speeds up to 36 km/h (22 mph). Text from Wikipedia

Baku, Baku Region, Azerbaijan, Eurasia
 
03:20
Baku is the capital and largest city of Azerbaijan, as well as the largest city on the Caspian Sea and of the Caucasus region. Baku is located 28 meters below sea level, which makes it the lowest lying national capital in the world. Baku is also the largest city in the world located below sea level. It is located on the southern shore of the Absheron Peninsula, which projects into the Caspian Sea. The city consists of two principal parts: the downtown and the old Inner City (21.5 ha). Baku's urban population at the beginning of 2009 was estimated at just over two million people. Officially, about 25 percent of all inhabitants of the country live in the metropolitan city area of Baku. Baku is divided into eleven administrative districts (raions) and 48 townships. Among these are the townships on islands in the Baku Bay and the town of Oil Rocks built on stilts in the Caspian Sea, 60 km (37 mi) away from Baku. The Inner City of Baku along with the Shirvanshah's Palace and Maiden Tower were inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000. According to the Lonely Planet's ranking, Baku is also among the world's top ten destinations for urban nightlife. The city is the scientific, cultural and industrial center of Azerbaijan. Many sizeable Azerbaijani institutions have their headquarters there, including SOCAR, one of the world's top 100 companies and others. The Baku International Sea Trade Port, sheltered by the islands of the Baku Archipelago to the east and the Absheron Peninsula to the north, is capable of handling two million tons of general and dry bulk cargoes per year. Baku hosted the 57th Eurovision Song Contest in 2012 and will host the 2015 European Games. The urban landscape of Baku is shaped by many communities. The religion with the largest community of followers is Islam. The majority of the Muslims are Shia Muslims, and the Republic of Azerbaijan has the second highest Shia population percentage in the world after Iran. Zoroastrianism had a long history in Azerbaijan, evident in sites such as the Fire Temple of Baku or ceremonies like Nowruz, along with Manichean. The city's notable mosques include Juma Mosque, Bibi-Heybat Mosque, Muhammad Mosque and Taza Pir Mosque. There are some other faiths practiced among the different ethnic groups within the country. By article 48 of its Constitution, Azerbaijan is a secular state and ensures religious freedom. Religious minorities include Russian Orthodox Christians, Catholic Levantines, Ashkenazi Jews and Sufi Muslims. Today the vast majority of the population of Baku are ethnic Azerbaijanis (more than 90%). The intensive growth of the population started in the middle of the 19th century when Baku was a small town with a population of about 7,000 people. The population increased again from about 13,000 in the 1860s to 112,000 in 1897 and 215,000 in 1913, making Baku the largest city in the Caucasus region. Baku has been a cosmopolitan city at certain times during its history, meaning ethnic Azerbaijanis did not constitute the majority of population. In 2003 Baku additionally had 153,400 internally displaced persons and 93,400 refugees. Baku's largest industry is petroleum, and its petroleum exports make it a large contributor to Azerbaijan's balance of payments. The existence of petroleum has been known since the 8th century. In the 10th century, the Arabian traveler, Marudee, reported that both white and black oil were being extracted naturally from Baku. By the 15th century, oil for lamps was obtained from hand-dug surface wells. Commercial exploitation began in 1872, and by the beginning of the 20th century the Baku oil fields were the largest in the world. Towards the end of the 20th century much of the onshore petroleum had been exhausted, and drilling had extended into the sea offshore. By the end of the 19th century skilled workers and specialists flocked to Baku. By 1900 the city had more than 3,000 oil wells, of which 2,000 were producing oil at industrial levels. Baku ranked as one of the largest centres for the production of oil industry equipment before World War II. The World War II Battle of Stalingrad was fought to determine who would have control of the Baku oil fields. Fifty years before the battle, Baku produced half of the world's oil supply. Currently the oil economy of Baku is undergoing a resurgence, with the development of the massive Azeri-Chirag-Guneshli field (Shallow water Gunashli by SOCAR, deeper areas by a consortium led by BP), development of the Shah Deniz gas field, the expansion of the Sangachal Terminal and the construction of the BTC Pipeline.

US NAVY FEARS Iranian Navy Ghadir class STEALTH mini submarines
 
01:27
Ghadir (Persian: غدیر‎) is a class of midget submarines built by Iran specifically for cruising within the shallow waters of the Persian Gulf.[1] It is named after Ghadir Khumm, a holy place to Shia Muslims. It's based on the North Korean Yono class submarine. On 24 November 2007 Iranian rear-admiral Habibollah Sayyari announced: "A home-made destroyer called Jamaran and a home-made submarine of Ghadir class will launch operation on November 28." [1] He also said that the submarine is equipped with the latest military and technological equipment and that its capabilities are equal to that of foreign types. Iranian supreme leader Ali Khamenei was quoted saying: "Today, you have been able to design and build many of the military requirements. We have become self-sufficient from other countries." to Iran's navy commanders on the day the submarine was launched.[2] New Ghadir submarines were delivered to the Iranian navy on June 2009, August 2010,[3][4] August 2011,[5] November 2011,[6] February 2012[7] and November 2012.[8] While Ghadir resembles the North Korean Yono class submarine, it is probably better described as a littoral submarine.[9] The Ghadir class submarines are capable of firing the Hoot supercavitating rocket torpedoes. After the Iranian Revolution in 1979, the Imperial Iranian Navy was named Islamic Republic of Iran Navy (IRIN). As the naval warfare service branch of the Islamic Republic of Iran's armed forces, it has traditionally been the smallest branch of the Iranian military and is tasked mainly with securing Iran's ports and coastline. Over time, the Iranian Navy has changed its mission to primarily anti-piracy beyond the Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman. The Iranian Navy has aspirations of becoming a blue water navy but has lost influence to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy, which is now primarily tasked with securing Iran's interests in the Persian Gulf region.[1] Iran (Listeni/ɪˈrɑːn/[9] or /aɪˈræn/;[10] Persian: ایران‎ [ʔiˈɾɒn] ( listen)) or Persia (/ˈpɜrʒə/ or /ˈpɜrʃə/),[10][11] officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a country in Western Asia.[12][13][14] The country is bordered on the north by Armenia, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan, with Kazakhstan and Russia to the north across the Caspian Sea. 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. The 18th-largest country in the world in terms of area at 1,648,195 km2 (636,372 sq mi), Iran is an ethnically diverse country and has a population of around 77 million.[12][15] It is a mountainous country of particular geopolitical significance owing to its location in three spheres of Asia. Tehran is the capital, the country's most populous city and the political, cultural, commercial and industrial center of the nation. Known as a developing country, Iran is a regional power,[16][17] 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 has the largest proven natural gas reserves in the world,[18] and the fourth largest proven petroleum reserves.[19] The United States Navy (USN) is the naval warfare service branch of the United States Armed Forces and one of the seven uniformed services of the United States. It is larger than the next 13 largest navies combined in terms of battle fleet tonnage.[4][5] The U.S. Navy also has the world's largest carrier fleet, with 10 in service, one under construction (two planned), and two in reserve. The service has 317,054 personnel on active duty and 109,671 in the Navy Reserve. It operates 288 ships in active service and more than 3,700 aircraft.[2]

Iran and Russia sign a major Security cooperation deal.
 
03:00
The Islamic Republic of Iran and Russia have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to increase security cooperation between the two countries. Iranian Interior Minister Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Alexandrovich Kolokoltsev signed the MoU during a meeting in Tehran on Tuesday. Heading a political delegation, Kolokoltsev arrived in the Iranian capital on Monday for a two-day official visit upon the invitation of the Iranian interior minister. "The signing of the security MoU is a cornerstone in the expansion of cooperation between the two countries," Mohammad-Najjar said. The Iranian interior minister added that the good relations between Iran and Russia require that Tehran and Moscow cooperate to provide security for the region. "Training police forces and providing security in the region were among the main issues of the talks [in Tehran]," Mohammad-Najjar said, adding that various other issues such as the Caspian Sea, fighting organized crimes, and human and drug trafficking had also been discussed in the meeting. Kolokoltsev's visit is the first to Iran by a Russian minister of internal affairs since the victory of the Islamic Revolution in 1979. The Iranian interior minister visited Russia at the invitation of his Russian counterpart in January 2012 and held talks with former Russian Interior Minister Rashid Nurgaliyev and Russia's Federal Drug Control Service Viktor Ivanov.

Iran oil ship insurance relief not any time soon
 
04:07
Several leading insurers say the easing of insurance sanctions on some Iranian oil exports is likely to take months to come into effect. The companies claim this is due to complex law and regulations in the United States and the European Union. They also say a formal change in EU, UK and US laws is needed to release insurers from existing prohibitions. A recent nuclear deal on Iran's nuclear energy program in Geneva allows an easing of a ban on European ship insurance companies that deal with Iran. The sanctions relief could allow Iran to transport its oil more easily to its Asian customers.

Saudi Arabia's role in the Syrian civil war
 
05:36
Saudi Arabia's role in the Syrian civil war http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBL_X2bdwdU The Saudi interests in the Syrian civil war is to push Iran's influence out of Syria, Lebanon and Iraq altogether. Saudi Iranian relations have been tense ever since Iran's Islamic revoultion in 1979. But the relations took a turn for the worse, with Iran's role in the US-Iraq war in 2003. By disassembling the Iraqi army and Saddam's Ba'ath party, the US created a power vacuum in Iraq which was quickly filled by pro-Iranian figures. And for the first time in a long time, a pro-Shiite state now bordered the Saudi Kingdom. This made the Saudis very anxious, because they too have a sizable Shiite communities, and they feel that this rise of Shiasm, could very well spread to their own country (especially in the oil rich gulf region). This is something Riyadh cannot tolerate. Since Iraq, the Saudis and Iranians have had several proxy clashes in Bahrain, Iraq, Lebanon and now in Syria.

The Globalization of Energy Resources: Tapping Caspian Oil and Gas; Oct 19, 2006
 
01:18:34
Jonathan Elkind Independent energy, environment and security consultant and former Director for Russian, Ukrainian, and Eurasian Affairs, National Security Council (1998-2001) Against the backdrop of global cooperation and competition for energy resources, the potential of tapping vast oil and natural gas reserves in the Caspian Sea basin sparked the interest of various international actors beginning in the early 1990s. Today, development of mechanisms (such as the transnational Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline) to bring these resources to the market continues. Jonathan Elkind will examine the opportunities and challenges associated with the Caspian reserves, analyzing the involvement of various stakeholders—from multinational oil corporations to the governments of former Soviet states and other countries in the region and the world—and the economic and foreign policy impacts of the globalization of energy resources. Jonathan Elkind's visit is cosponsored by the Program in Arms Control, Disarmament, and International Security (ACDIS) with additional support from the Center for Global Studies, Environmental Council, and the Russian, East European, and Eurasian Center.

Yanar Dag, Absheron Peninsula, Baku Region, Azerbaijan, Eurasia
 
00:33
Yanar Dag is a natural gas fire which blazes continuously on a hillside on the Absheron Peninsula on the Caspian Sea near Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, which itself is known as the "land of fire." Flames jet out into the air 3 metres (9.8 ft) from a thin, porous sandstone layer. However a visual comparison of the photos of Yanar Dag compared to images of mud volcanoes will show the difference between this seep and the "sedimentary volcanoes" or "gas oil volcanoes" concealed below land and sea in the Caspian region and which Azerbaijan has the largest concentration globally, though others exist in Turkey, Turkmenistan and elsewhere. Yanar Dag is also known by other names such as "pilpila", "bozdagh", "ahtarma" and "gaynarja." Unlike mud volcanoes, the Yanar Dag flame burns fairly steadily, as it is not a periodic eruption, but a steady seep of gas from the subsurface. It is also claimed that the Yanar Dag flame was only noted when accidentally lit by a shepherd in the 1950s. As noted in the photos, there is no seepage of mud or liquid from the seep, which distinguishes it from the nearby mud volcanoes of Lokbatan or Gobustan. The Yanar Dag fire is never extinguished. Around this open fireplace the atmosphere is filled with the smell of gas. The flames emanate from vents in sandstone formations and rise to a height of 10 metres (33 ft) (different figures are mentioned in other references) at the base of a 10-metre (33 ft)-wide scarp below a hillside. Yanar Dag is described by the Geological Survey of Azerbaijan as "Intensive flames, to 1 metre (3 ft 3 in) 3 in) high, develop for 15 metres (49 ft) along the base of a 2--4 metres (6 ft 7 in--13 ft 1 in) in--13 ft 1 in) high and 200 metres (660 ft) long tectonic scarp". The surface flames result from the steady gas emissions from underlying soils. Even on the surface of streams near Yanar Dag fire can be ignited with a lit match. These streams, which otherwise appear calm, are known as Yanar Bulaq -- "burning springs". There are several such springs in the vicinity of the Vilascay River, which the local people use to take a curative bath for their ailments. Alexandre Dumas, during one of his visits to the area, described a similar fire he saw in the region inside one of the Zoroastrian fire temples built around it. Only a handful of fire mountains exist today in the world, and most are located in Azerbaijan. Due to the large concentration of natural gas under the Absheron Peninsula, natural flames burned there throughout antiquity and were reported on by historical writers such as Marco Polo. The closest city to Yanar Dag is Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, which has a good network of roads, railway lines and ports. The Heydar Aliyev International Airport is the nearest airport, which is 25 kilometres (16 mi) away from Baku (one km off the Baku-Mardakan road). Baku International Marine Trade Port in the Bay of Baku is the nearest port. Most mud volcanoes are located off the Baku‐Shamakha road, about 40 kilometres (25 mi) away from the city. The reasoning offered for the Yanar Dag fires is the result of hydrocarbon gases emanating from below the earth's surface. Apart from Yanar Dag, the most famous site of such a fire is the Zoroastrian Fire Temple near Baku, off the Greater Caucasus, which is a religious site known as ateshgahs, meaning temples of fire. It has also been inferred that such fires could be the cause for "thermal metamorphism". Like Yanar Dag, the Ateshgah is also a seep through porous zones, and not a mud volcano, such as those found at Gobustan or Lokbatan. According to the scientific study carried out by the scientists and geologists of the Geological Survey of Azerbaijan, from four samples taken from the Yanar Dag, the maximum flux was recorded at the upper side of the fault scarp from where the flames emanate. The value of microseepage recorded was 103 mg•m22•d21 at 30 metres (98 ft) from the fire, on the upper part of the study area. It has been inferred that the total degassing area is clearly larger than the measured area, and it is very likely that the microseepage is pervasive along the fault zone. This fault scarp is also inferred as a part of the huge Balakhan-Fatmai structure on the Absheron Peninsula. The naturally occurring fire burns in colourful flames most impressively at dusk, when both tourists and locals can view it from nearby teashops. The numerous links to fire in the folklore and icons of Azerbaijan are attributed to a connection to the ancient Iranian religion of Zoroastrianism, which first appeared in this region over 2,000 years ago. This created a cult of fire worshippers in Azerbaijan before the Islamic rule came into effect. Yanar Dag continues to inspire artists; in recent years through a Finnish opera and a French Canadian stage play.

Baku: into tomorrow's world - life
 
04:56
http://www.euronews.com/ In this edition of Azerbaijan Life we go to the capital of the country, Baku, to see and hear how the city is moving into the future. Baku is on the western shores of the Caspian Sea. Its heartbeat is the vibrant old city. Scholars believe the earliest written evidence of Baku dates back to the first century AD. Sieges and battles have raged around its walls since. Baku's history reflects the changing cultures and architectural styles here at the crossroads between Asia and Europe. Khanum Babyeva, a guide at the Research and Cultural Centre explained more about the buildings: "Baku is a very, very interesting city because Azerbaijani people call it a city of contrasts. Why a city of contrasts? It's because of this new construction and the old places. The Maiden's Tower and then the Palace with the Minaret. Behind me are three beautiful new buildings which are the symbol of modern Baku." The iconic flame towers, the facades of which are turned into gigantic display screens at night dominate the city's skyline. The country's centuries old carpet making industry is celebrated in a stunning new museum as a traditional craft and culture meets futuristic design which reflects the story of this developing city. "For tourists its is very interesting as in one city they can see different periods of time, different cultures. In order to just observe these cultures they had to go to Spain, Arab countries or to central Asia but in one city they can see all these cultures all this architecture," added Khanum Babyeva. Within the walls of the old city - a UNESCO world heritage site - is what is to date the world's only private museum of its kind. Visitors can view over 5,000 published books in miniature, collected from 64 countries many by authors known across the globe. Zarifa Salakhova the museum owner explained her interest in these tiny books. "Minature books is an art form and the smaller the book the greater the artistic development." Factfile: Azerbaijan * Where: Azerbaijan shares its borders with Caspian Sea to the east, Russia to the north, Georgia to the northwest, Armenia to the west, and Iran to the south. * History: The country gets its name from Atropates, a Persian nobleman. In modern Persian translates to "The Treasury" and "The Treasurer" of fire or "The Land of the Fire". * Area: 86,600 sq. km. * Population: 9,168 millions. * Official Language: Azerbaijani * Economy: Oil and natural gas. Azerbaijan is one of the birthplaces of the oil industry and produces about 800,000 barrels a day and one billion cubic meters of gas per year. * Currency :Azerbaijani Manat. It is divided into 100 qepik. * Major Religion: Islam * Drink: Tea is the most popular drink. It is traditionally served in a pear shaped glass and often consumed through lumps of sugar or jam, held in the mouth. * Rivers: There are 8,350 rivers in Azerbaijan and all of them drain into the Caspian Sea. * Capital: Baku. It is located on the southern shore of the Absheron Peninsula. Its name in Persian means "Wind-pounded city". The city is the scientific, cultural and industrial centre of the country with an estimated population of 2,064 millions. The old city overlooks the Caspian Sea. All is not well in these waters. The sturgeon fish and country's world famous wild caviar are under threat. On the Kura River which flows into the Caspian Sea is one example of how Azerbaijan is preparing to protect its industry of caviar and take it into tomorrow's world with a special and unique ecological farm for sturgeon. It is one of the oldest families of fish in existence, its caviar eggs renowned and sought after for centuries at tables across the world, but the clock is ticking. "Sturgeon fish is on the verge of extinction. No more wild caviar if we don't do something about it now," said Ahadpur K the man behind the initiative. Under strict ecological conditions there is a breeding programme in place. Each stage of development of every fish is closely monitored. After five years they are released into the fresh water. "Caviar fish is like salmon, for example, from whichever river they entered the water when they have caviar they return to the same river to lay eggs," added Ahadpur K.
