Israel to propose Saudi - Israel oil pipeline

Exporting oil to Europe via an Israeli land pipeline would help the Gulf states bypass the dangerous and costly Straits of Hormuz and Suez Canal shipping routes.
Israel will propose that the UAE help promote the construction of a land pipeline between Saudi Arabia and Israel for oil and distillates for shipping from the Mediterranean coast onto Europe and North America using the existing infrastructure of the Eilat Ashkelon Pipeline Co. Ltd. (EAPC). Such a plan would financially benefit Israel and be cheaper and safer for the Gulf states by bypassing dangerous sea routes and the costly Suez Canal.

Sources inform "Globes" that there have been high level meetings on the matter in recent days involving between senior figures in the Ministries of Defense and Foreign Affairs involving EAPC chairman Erez Kalfon and CEO Itzik Levy.

The peace agreement signed yesterday between Israel and the UAE hints at such a project with energy emphasized as one of the areas for cooperation.

Earlier this year EAPC changed the meaning of its acronym to Europe Asia Pipeline Co.

The EAPC plan would involve extending the Ashkelon - Eilat pipeline 700 kilometers southeast to the Yanbu oil refineries in Saudi Arabia. Such a pipeline could go overland or under water in the Red Sea, although there could be objections to both plans from environmentalists.

The commercial advantages of such a plan for Europe is that it would shorten the time and cost of shipping oil and distillates from the Gulf to the West via the Suez Canal. Israel could earn an estimated several hundred million dollars per year by allowing the oil to flow through the pipeline from Eilat to the Mediterranean coast.

For Saudi Arabia and the Gulf state it would reduce dependence on the perilous sea routes around the Straits of Hormuz and Yemen would are vulnerable to attacks from Iran and then pirates nearly the entrance to the Red Sea. Most Gulf oil exports go eastwards to India, China, Japan and the rest of Asia but exports to Europe and America are still very significant.

An article in S&P Global Platts several weeks ago focused on the possibility of such a plan.

In the Platts article, EAPC deputy manager commerce and marketing Effie Milutin said, "The geopolitical risks in the Persian Gulf region only increase the attractiveness of the EAPC system. Incidents around the Strait of Hormuz - which transports around 20% of all global oil supply - have increased the oil and shipping industry's concerns over security of supply, with shipments via the Red Sea's Bab el-Mandab commodity chokepoint seen as an alternative route."

This pipeline and the EastMed Pipeline is going to move things along quicker. Everyday is a new surprise!
Russia is going to be getting very desperate soon along with an already desperate Turkey and Iran.

Where in ISRAEL does this pipeline originate, do you know? There are several prophecies about some of the towns on the sea there, and I'm wondering if they are going to line up with this pipeline....and, is this the one they are calling Leviathan?

The Article says in Eilat. Eilat is a southern Israeli port and resort town on the Red Sea, near Jordan.

Turkey-Russia already having trouble with EastMed pipeline existing. This one might drive them through the roof!
I believe the Leviathan is just the name for the gas field off the southwest coast of Israel.

Yes...Ashkelon...thank you so much for pointing that part out, because I missed it....(I don't read very well on the computer, sometimes....thank you for your patience)....

BECAUSE, Ashkelon is indeed mentioned in the Jeremiah prophecy in chapters 46 or 47, I think.......interesting.

Thanks for mentioning it.
I just had to look it up. :book VERY interesting indeed!


Jeremiah 47

47 The word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah the prophet against the Philistines, before that Pharaoh smote Gaza.
2 Thus saith the Lord; Behold, waters rise up out of the north, and shall be an overflowing flood, and shall overflow the land, and all that is therein; the city, and them that dwell therein: then the men shall cry, and all the inhabitants of the land shall howl.
3 At the noise of the stamping of the hoofs of his strong horses, at the rushing of his chariots, and at the rumbling of his wheels, the fathers shall not look back to their children for feebleness of hands;
4 Because of the day that cometh to spoil all the Philistines, and to cut off from Tyrus and Zidon every helper that remaineth: for the Lord will spoil the Philistines, the remnant of the country of Caphtor.
5 Baldness is come upon Gaza; Ashkelon is cut off with the remnant of their valley: how long wilt thou cut thyself?
6 O thou sword of the Lord, how long will it be ere thou be quiet? put up thyself into thy scabbard, rest, and be still.
7 How can it be quiet, seeing the Lord hath given it a charge against Ashkelon, and against the sea shore? there hath he appointed it.

See, I don't know if this prophecy and others that were fulfilled earlier are shadows of what is coming, but, could also have a dual fulfillment....but, it is very interesting. And, the chapters around this are also full of the prophecies for the other nations that Jeremiah foretold, including Moab....of course, we can apply all the information, so we can heed warnings, but, it is interesting about this, I think...I just wonder what you all think about this.
