Russian/Eng/Nat As the world's major oil supplies dry up or are threatened by war, the huge oil reserves of the Caspian Sea have caught the eye of international businesses and governments. Estimated to have the equivalent of three North Sea's worth of oil, scores of major companies have set up in the Azeri city of Baku to take advantage of the boom. Although an international oil consortium has been set up to avoid conflict some experts believe the region could become as volatile as the Middle East in the next century. For this new floating oil platform the calm waters of the Caspian are ideal for exploration and drilling. It's part of the region's third oil boom which started with the fall of the Soviet Union. International oil companies have flooded in since 1991 to tap he area's rich reserves on land and under the sea. Both Russia and America have formed foreign policy around the region, well aware that the development of oil resources can create tensions which often lead to hostilities. Regional rivals Turkey, Russia and Iran are vying for control of the oil exports in an effort to gain the upper-hand in the region and to secure influence over the former Soviet republics of Central Asia. But the Azerbaijani president Geidar Aliyev says that a combination of he new wealth brought to his country by the oil boom and his firm rule will ensure stability rather than conflict. SOUNDBITE: (Russian) \"I don't think Azerbaijan is threatened by the danger of a North-South conflict or between different countries. I don't think it's a reality but I can't guarantee against that possibility.\" SUPER CAPTION: Geidar Aliyev, Azeri President The oil reserves in this part of the world are so great that no single company could efficiently exploit them. So U-S, Russian, Japanese, British, Saudi, Turkish and Azerbaijani interests have created an international consortium. Businessmen hope international cooperation will help keep the region politically quiet and eventually turn it into a major supplier of high-grade oil for world markets. SOUNDBITE: (English) \"I think that you can see from the international interest in the Caspian at this point in time how important this is going to be as a long term resource centre to supply global oil. It's also coming onto the market , onto the global market at a time when other major basins such as the North Sea, such as Alaska etc are going into significant decline.\" SUPERCAPTION: Terry Adams, head of international oil consortium Turkey and Russia are engaged in a bitter battle to export the Caspian oil to Europe via pipelines through their own territories. So far the international consortium has not decided on the long term solution, but early oil exports will go through Russia and Georgia. Political analysts are not that optimistic of stability in the region as the people of the Caspian have along history of confrontation and full-scale wars, often triggered by rivalry over who would control the oil wells. SOUNDBITE: (English) \"It is a danger that the region could become as explosive as the Middle East. You have all the same ingredients which are available in the Middle East. You also have a long history of rivalry between Turkey and Iran, Russia and the West.\" SUPER CAPTION: Viktor Trenin, Carnegie Institute Moscow It remains to be seen whether economic expediency and common sense will prevail in regional politics over centuries of animosity and mistrust. For the time being, Azerbaijan is looking to the future full of hope.

Caspian Sea field begins oil production
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.

The Caspian Sea Deal and Dispute Explained
Since the Soviet Union fell in 1991, the Caspian Sea has been subject to a dispute between the countries that border the water. At the heart of the issue is whether the Caspian is a sea or a lake. However recently in 2018 progress has been made to come to an agreement over how the Caspian should be shared.

But as international forces gathered on the shores of the Caspian Sea, they weren't just fighting for land. Industrialisation and rapid advances in military technology meant that oil became a strategic commodity, and as such, Baku became the site of a new kind of modern warfare.

English/Nat After nearly a century of isolation the city of Baku - capital of Azerbaijan - is booming again as Western companies scramble for a slice of offshore oil riches in the Caspian Sea. An international oil consortium this week announced a new pipeline route, setting the stage for large-scale production to start up next year. Cut off for nearly a century of revolution, war and Soviet rule, Baku is booming again as Western companies scramble for a slice of Azerbaijan's offshore oil riches in the Caspian Sea. An international oil consortium this week announced a new pipeline route, setting the stage for large-scale production to start next year. Baku's oil boom at the end of the last century made the Rothschilds and the Nobels wealthy and powerful competitors to Standard Oil. Their riches were consumed in the revolutionary conflagration of 1917. Jerry-built oil rigs now choke the bay. An evil haze hangs over the Soviet-era oil refineries. Treacly oil bleeds from old wells into the Caspian. But the oil barons are back, in the guise of the 11-member consortium called the Azerbaijan International Operating Company (AIOC). The consortium plans to produce 700-thousand barrels of oil a day from two offshore fields by the year 2000, requiring direct investment of eight (b) billion (US) dollars. Western companies believe the former Soviet republic sits over some of the most important oil deposits in the world. The rush is now on to see who will be able to capitalise on this huge potential. SOUNDBITE: "Oil developments in this region are going to be taking place I hope in a rather rapid fashion over the next few years and there's going to be a lot of oil that will come not only out of Azerbaijan, not only out of the AIOC concession but out of others as well." SUPER CAPTION: Richard Kauzlarich, US Ambassador The shaky former Soviet republic of Azerbaijan stands to earn over 90 (b) billion dollars from the project, with others in the offing. Already, a crop of expensive stores, bars and restaurants has opened to lighten the pockets of wealthy, Western oil workers and executives. For homesick Americans, Charlie's Bar sells hamburgers and steaks. Nearby stands the Lord Nelson pub where English beer is freighted in for thirsty British oilmen. Landlord Charlie Christmas is convinced he's on to a winner. SOUNDBITE: "I think Baku is a boom town. If you're not in it now, you've missed it. You've got to be in, I was exactly a year ago. If you're not in now, you've lost it." SUPER CAPTION: Charlie Christmas, pub owner Westerners have flocked to Baku lured by the promise of easy money. But political instability in the Caucasus is likely to make the Baku oil business a high stakes game.

Azerbaijan's oil gateway
Azerbaijan—a nation of Turkic Muslims—has been an independent republic since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. Despite a cease-fire, in place since 1994, Azerbaijan has yet to resolve its conflict with Armenia over the Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh enclave (largely populated by Armenians). Azerbaijan has lost almost 20 percent of its territory and must support some 750,000 refugees and internally displaced persons as a result of the conflict. Corruption is ubiquitous and the promise of widespread wealth from Azerbaijan's undeveloped petroleum resources remains largely unfulfilled. Despite its long history of producing oil, Azerbaijan still possesses considerable oil and gas deposits. Today, four off-shore oilfields produce the lion's share of Azerbaijan's output: "Guneshli," which yields 57 percent of Azerbaijan's current oil production, "Chirag," "Azeri," and "Kapaz." During the Soviet period, these fields were left largely untapped because of the expense and difficulty of drilling at great depths under the sea. Since independence, the Azerbaijan International Operating Company, a twelve-company consortium dominated by BP-Amoco, is developing the three largest Azeri oilfields. Apart from the development of the oilfields, which has already begun, Azerbaijan continues its explorations for other deposits in the Caspian Sea. In the part of the Caspian belonging to Azerbaijan, around 24 sites have been singled out as suitable for drilling. The Gateway visits "Oil Rocks", the first ever offshore oil well in the world; a huge feat of engineering, built in 1949

Extracting troubles - Kashagan oil field
The Kashagan oil field in the Caspian Sea is one of the largest oil fields discovered in the last few decades. The field is developed by a consortium of oil companies including Eni, Total, ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips, Shell, Inpex and KazMunayGaz with financial support from several banks such as BNP Paribas, Citigroup, Societè Generale, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation, Mitsubishi Trust and Banking Corporation, Mizuho Bank and the ING Group. Civil society groups have been raising concerns with BNP Paribas and other financial institutions about the environmental and public health dangers associated with Kashagan. An international Fact Finding Mission in the Northern Caspian region, conducted in September 2007, found evidence of extremely high environmental and social impacts and risks, and violations of international standards, including the Equator Principles and IFC Performance Standards, in the development of Kashagans offshore and onshore operations. The Caspian Sea is the largest reserve of fresh water in Central Asia. The natural life of a whole continent depends on it. If the oil industry destroys this sea, Kazakhstan will remain behind with a deserted land and a dead sea.

Worlds MOST POWERFUL Military Naval Fleet in Caspian Sea
A navy or maritime force is a fleet of waterborne military vessels (watercraft) and its associated naval aviation, both sea-based and land-based. It is the branch of a nation's armed forces principally designated for naval and amphibious warfare; namely, lake-borne, riverine, littoral, or ocean-borne combat operations and related functions. It includes anything conducted by surface ships, amphibious ships, submarines, and seaborne aviation, as well as ancillary support, communications, training, and other fields; recent developments have included space-related operations. The strategic offensive role of a navy is projection of force into areas beyond a country's shores (for example, to protect sea-lanes, ferry troops, or attack other navies, ports, or shore installations). The strategic defensive purpose of a navy is to frustrate seaborne projection-of-force by enemies. The strategic task of the navy also may incorporate nuclear deterrence by use of Submarine-launched ballistic missiles. Naval operations can be broadly divided between riverine and littoral applications (brown-water navy), open-ocean applications (blue-water navy), and something in between (green-water navy), although these distinctions are more about strategic scope than tactical or operational division. In most nations, the term "naval", as opposed to "navy", is interpreted as encompassing all maritime military forces, e.g., navy, marine / marine corps, and coast guard forces. Etymology and meanings[edit] First attested in English in the early 14th century,[1] the word "navy" came via Old French navie, "fleet of ships", from the Latin navigium, "a vessel, a ship, bark, boat",[2] from navis, "ship".[3] The word "naval" came from Latin navalis, "pertaining to ship";[4] cf. Greek ναῦς (naus), "ship",[5] ναύτης (nautes), "seaman, sailor".[6] The earliest attested form of the word is in the Mycenaean Greek compound word 𐀙𐀄𐀈𐀗, na-u-do-mo (*naudomoi), "shipbuilders", written in Linear B syllabic script.[n 1] The word formerly denoted fleets of both commercial and military nature. In modern usage "navy" used alone always denotes a military fleet, although the term "merchant navy" for a commercial fleet still incorporates the non-military word sense. This overlap in word senses between commercial and military fleets grew out of the inherently dual-use nature of fleets; centuries ago, nationality was a trait that unified a fleet across both civilian and military uses. Although nationality of commercial vessels has little importance in peacetime trade other than for tax avoidance, it can have greater meaning during wartime, when supply chains become matters of patriotic attack and defense, and when in some cases private vessels are even temporarily converted to military vessels. The latter was especially important, and common, before 20th-century military technology existed, when merely adding artillery and naval infantry to any sailing vessel could render it fully as martial as any military-owned vessel. Such privateering has been rendered obsolete in blue-water strategy since modern missile and aircraft systems grew to leapfrog over artillery and infantry in many respects; but privateering nevertheless remains potentially relevant in littoral warfare of a limited and asymmetric nature. History Naval warfare developed when humans first fought from water-borne vessels. Prior to the introduction of the cannon and ships with sufficient capacity to carry the large guns, navy warfare primarily involved ramming and boarding actions. In the time of ancient Greece and the Roman Empire, naval warfare centered on long, narrow vessels powered by banks of oarsmen (such as triremes and quinqueremes) designed to ram and sink enemy vessels or come alongside the enemy vessel so its occupants could be attacked hand-to-hand. Naval warfare continued in this vein through the Middle Ages until the cannon became commonplace and capable of being reloaded quickly enough to be reused in the same battle. The Chola Dynasty of medieval India was known as one of the greatest naval powers of its time from 300 BC to 1279 AD. The Chola Navy, Chola kadarpadai comprised the naval forces of the Chola Empire along with several other Naval-arms of the country. The Chola navy played a vital role in the expansion of the Chola Tamil kingdom, including the conquest of the Sri Lanka islands, Kadaaram (Present day Burma), Sri Vijaya (present day Southeast Asia), the spread of Hinduism, Tamil architecture and Tamil culture to Southeast Asia and in curbing the piracy in Southeast Asia in 900 CE. In ancient China, large naval battles were known since the Qin Dynasty (also see Battle of Red Cliffs, 208), employing the war junk during the Han Dynasty. However, China's first official standing navy was not established until the Southern Song dynasty in the 12th century, a time when gunpowder was a revolutionary new application to warfare. he mass and deck space required

Azerbaijan's Oil Fields Are Waiting to be Exploited
The New Kuwait (Sep 1997) The tiny former Soviet republic of Azerbaijan is on track to become the next nation made rich through oil. Subscribe to Journeyman here: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures# Its neighbouring Caspian Sea territory has oil reserves of more than twice the North Sea total. Already $22 billion worth of contracts have been signed with Western oil companies and oil executives are flooding into the capital Baku. Azerbaijan was one of the poorer Soviet republics because the oil was inefficiently exploited and the money stayed in Moscow. Now independent and devastated by war with neighbouring Armenia, Azerbaijan is carefully playing off Russian and Western oil interests. But fears remain that ordinary people will never see the vast wealth. Azerbaijan's war refugees are already a huge social catastrophe. Forced to flee her home in the war, Badam lives in a railway carriage with her family of seven. Azerbaijan lost 20% of its area in the war with Armenia and the government refuses permanent housing to its one million homeless, determined that one day they must return home. Azerbaijan's potential riches make it a highly strategic pawn in the greedy politics of the Caspian region. It remains to be seen if it can exploit this wealth to benefit its own people.

English/Nat Seventy years of intensive oil production during the Soviet era has devastated the Caspian Sea and surrounding area. Constant demands to increase production levels meant workers were under pressure to produce vast amounts of oil with no heed for the environment. Now local environmental groups are calling on foreign oil companies to help clean up the environment. And a new study is underway to find out the extent of the devastation and also the main source of pollution. The Caspian Sea area is one of the world's biggest sources of oil. For decades, man has exploited the land and sea, with no heed for the environment. During the Soviet era, oil production was intensive to meet Russian annual targets. Today the area is a dead zone, devoid of wildlife. The soil glistens black with oil spilt from dripping pipelines and machinery. Under the Soviet Union when drilling was completed, oil wells were never sealed, and so oil poured onto the ground. Environmentalists say that this highly visible devastation may be the least of the problems. They are concerned about more invisible materials such as radioactive and highly toxic waste leaking into the Caspian. Broken pipes are repaired in a make-shift manner. But this is not enough to prevent gas hissing out. The ground is a helter skelter of old rusting pipes. Today no one is quite sure where they lead to and what they carry. SOUNDBITE: (English) "During the Communist regime, the main goal was the extraction of oil and nothing else. Nobody cared about the environment, and our leaders every year made their plan to the centre in Moscow that we fulfilled the plan for this year, for the month and so on. So that's why the situation is disastering (disastrous). SUPER CAPTION: Bahar Hadji-Zadeh, board member of Azerbaijan Green Movement Scrap metal litters the coastline of Turkmenistan. Although the metal could be recycled, the Turkmen government has made not effort to do anything with it. Local environmental groups now see foreign oil companies as their only hope to clean up the environment. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We should do a lot together, we should increase the awareness of the population first, to educate the population, to improve the economic situation, to spend money for this for the environment and we should force these oil companies to do something for this." SUPERCAPTION: Bahar Hadji-Zadeh, board member of Azerbaijan Green Movement One of the companies, Monument, which operates in Turkmenistan, says it is trying to clean up areas which it has taken over. Contaminated soil has been removed and scrap metal cleared up. SOUNDBITE: (English) "It's disorderly, it's messy, but most of the damage is superficial and surface related and with a bit of remedial work it can be cleared up. SUPER CAPTION: Atal Gupta, General Manager of Monument Oil's Turkmenistan operation Off-shore, oil platforms are allowed to rust. During the Soviet Union, drilling platforms were never reused, but were left to rot. Some have imploded, others have keeled over into the sea. Divers report that the seabed is a mass of metal. Now a major project in underway to look at the main cause and extent of pollution within the Caspian. The Caspian Environment Programme is being funded by several bodies including the European Union, the World Bank and the Global Environment Facility. It also involves state bodies from each of the countries surrounding the Caspian. Once the investigation is completed, work will begin on trying to clean up the sea. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The final outcome that we hope for is that there will be an agreement with the five countries on how to further protect the sea and improve the environment of the sea."

Iran discovers huge oil field
Iran discovers oil field in the Caspian Sea estimated at 50 trillion cubic feet!
English/Nat The former Soviet republic of Turkmenistan is reputed to hold the world's third biggest gas reserves as well as considerable oil fields. Yet it remains the poorest of the former Soviet republics. Sandwiched between Russia, to the north, and Iran and Afghanistan, to the south, its position means gas cannot easily be exported to markets. Now with the fall in oil revenues there are fears that if the situation in Turkmenistan continues, frustration could overspill into civil war. In the heady days following the collapse of the former Soviet Union the Turkmen government built these 28 luxury hotels in anticipation of a Kuwait-style oil and gas boom. Today the so-called "Las Vegas" strip is virtually empty, still waiting for its cash rich oil executives. The former Soviet republic may have huge oil reserves and the world's third biggest gas fields - but it has one major disadvantage: getting its fuel to markets. Unlike other former Soviet republics such as Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan is thought largely inaccessible by Western oil companies and there are richer picking elsewhere. Its further hindered by its outdated infrastructure; all pipelines point north, a legacy from Soviet days. Due to a dispute with the Russian oil company Gazprom, Moscow has now closed the pipeline and Turkmenistan can no longer transport its gas north. Transport through Iran to the south is also a problem because of U-S imposed sanctions. And the current instability in Afghanistan led the U-S company Unocal to recently shelve its gas pipeline through to Pakistan. Turkmenistan it appears is hindered on all sides. SOUNDBITE: (English) "You can either ship gas south through Afghanistan or through Iran or up north through Russia and all of those have political if not natural barriers to the markets that can pay money for the gas." SUPERCAPTION: Scott Barber, President of Unocal, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan There are proposals afoot to build a pipeline under the Caspian and also east through China - but even if these do come about they won't happen for at least 10 years. After independence in 1992 President Saparmurad Niyazov, in anticipation of an oil boom, promised every farmer a Mercedes Benz. Instead wages have not been paid for three to four months and funding to hospitals and universities have been cut so dramatically that departments have closed. While most people struggle to live, the authoritarian president is spending vast amounts of money on prestigious projects. Later this month Turkmenistan's very own "statue of liberty" will be completed to coincide with the state's independence day. A revolving statue of Niyazov will top this stand. SOUNDBITE: "In the meantime Turkmenistan remains the poorest out of all Caspian oil states with the shortest life expectancy among all Soviet republics and a complete dependancy of its economy on potential gas exports. Its industry is not developed, its agriculture is very poor, and the general state of the economy is just terrible in the current situation, so hopes for the oil boom and gas is really very much with the current government is hoping for is that is not to become reality the future of Turkmenistan would be gradual descent into an Afghan situation where there is a growing inequalities between the corrupt and the rich elite and the very poor." SUPERCAPTION: Oxana Antonenko, Institute for Strategic Studies There are fears that Afghanistan's civil war could overspill into Turkmenistan. SOUNDBITE: SUPERCAPTION: Oxana Antonenko, Institute for Strategic Studies If Turkmenistan is to see financial growth then improved relations between America and Iran may be its only hope.

Arcticaborg (Арктикаборг) icebreaker platform supply vessel Wagenborg Kazakhstan Caspian Sea
Arcticaborg (Арктикаборг) is an icebreaker platform supply vessel operated by Wagenborg Kazakhstan in the Caspian Sea. She and her sister ship, Antarcticaborg (Антарктикаборг), were built by Kværner Masa-Yards in Helsinki, Finland, in 1998. They are the first full developments of the double acting ship concept and among the first icebreakers equipped with Azipods, electric azimuth thrusters manufactured by ABB. General characteristics The 2,043-ton Arcticaborg and Antarcticaborg are 65.10 metres (213.6 ft) long and have a beam of 16.40 metres (53.8 ft). Designed to operate in shallow waters with a maximum depth of 5 metres (16 ft), their maximum operating draught is only 2.90 metres (9.5 ft). Furthermore, their main dimensions are limited by the Russian inland waterways, which had to be used to transport the ships to the Caspian Sea.[4] The gross tonnage of Arcticaborg and her sister ship are 1,453, net tonnage 454, and deadweight tonnage 675 tons.[2][5] The ships are served by a crew of 12 and have accommodation for 20.[6] Being supply ships, Arcticaborg and Antarcticaborg are equipped to carry a wide range of goods needed on the offshore platform. Each ship has a 350 m2 (3,800 sq ft) open aft decks for dry cargos and a cargo hold which has a hatch large enough the fit a twenty-foot container. For powderized goods such as cement and barite, they have five storage silos with a combined capacity of 51 m3 (1,800 cu ft). Furthermore, the ships have cargo tanks for 48 m3 (1,700 cu ft) of liquid drilling mud, 363 m3 (12,800 cu ft) of fuel, and 278 m3 (9,800 cu ft) of fresh water. On their way back from the platform, Arcticaborg and her sister ship can carry 67 m3 (2,400 cu ft) of sewage and wastewater.[6] They are also equipped for firefighting, pollution control and rescue operations, and has towing and anchor handling equipment.[5] The ships are classified by Russian Maritime Register of Shipping with ice class UL, equivalent to the highest Finnish-Swedish ice class, 1A Super.[2][6] However, the actual level of ice strengthening far exceeds the requirements of the ice class notations.[4] Power and propulsion Arcticaborg and Antarcticaborg have a diesel-electric powertrain with two six-cylinder Wärtsilä 6L26 4-stroke medium-speed diesel engines, each with a maximum continuous rating of 1,950 kilowatts (2,610 hp), driving van Kaick DGS generators rated 2,250 kVA at 690 V. According to the power plant principle, the main generators in the forward engine room provide electrical power for all shipboard consumers, including propulsion. For emergency and harbour use the ships also have Valmet 612 diesel engines, rated at 130 kilowatts (170 hp), coupled to 163 kVA alternators. The vessels are propelled by two ABB Azipod VI1100A electric azimuth thrusters rated at 1,620 kW each.[7] Arcticaborg and her sister ship were among the first icebreakers fitted with Azipod units that allow the ships to operate astern in heavy ice conditions with excellent maneuverability. In addition the ships have one 150 kW bow thruster for harbour operations.[5] Arcticaborg and her sister ship are one of the few ships capable of operating in the harsh ice conditions of the shallow Caspian Sea oil fields. They are able to break level ice up to 60 centimetres (24 in) thick at 3 knots (5.6 km/h; 3.5 mph) when moving ahead.[6] However, the bow is designed with good seakeeping and open water characteristics in mind, and in heavy ice conditions the ships are turned around and operated stern first. In such way, their icebreaking capability increases to 1 metre (3.3 ft) of level ice. More importantly, by allowing the Azipod units to mill and crush the ice, Arcticaborg and Antarcticaborg are able to penetrate ice ridges that are thicker than the draught of the ship and sometimes reach the seabed without having to rely on backing and ramming.[5][4] Their service speed in open water is 13 knots (24 km/h; 15 mph) and bollard pull 32 tons.[6] In addition to the four Azipod units installed on the ships ABB delivered a fifth spare unit, which allows the company to carry out a complete overhaul for all propulsors, one at a time, without having to dock the ships for extended periods.[8] Career Arcticaborg and Antarcticaborg were ordered from Kværner Masa-Yards Helsinki New Shipyard in December 1997 following extensive research and model testing at the company's Arctic Technology Centre, nowadays known as Aker Arctic.[5] Constructed in the covered dry dock at the same time, both ships were delivered to Wagenborg Kazakhstan BV, a subsidiary of the Dutch shipping company Wagenborg, within a week in October 1998 and sailed from Finland through the Mediterranean to the Black Sea and finally to the Caspian Sea RIMG0728

Extracting troubles - Kashagan oil field
The Kashagan oil field in the Caspian Sea is one of the largest oil fields discovered in the last few decades. The field is developed by a consortium of oil companies including Eni, Total, ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips, Shell, Inpex and KazMunayGaz with financial support from several banks such as BNP Paribas, Citigroup, Societè Generale, Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation, Mitsubishi Trust and Banking Corporation, Mizuho Bank and the ING Group. Civil society groups have been raising concerns with BNP Paribas and other financial institutions about the environmental and public health dangers associated with Kashagan. An international Fact Finding Mission in the Northern Caspian region, conducted in September 2007, found evidence of extremely high environmental and social impacts and risks, and violations of international standards, including the Equator Principles and IFC Performance Standards, in the development of Kashagans offshore and onshore operations. The Caspian Sea is the largest reserve of fresh water in Central Asia. The natural life of a whole continent depends on it. If the oil industry destroys this sea, Kazakhstan will remain behind with a deserted land and a dead sea.

Iran and Russia join forces for joint war games in Caspian Sea - Iran military 2019
Iran and Russia join forces for joint war games in Caspian Sea - IRAN and Russia are preparing to hold joint naval exercises in the Caspian Sea for “peace and stability”, says the commander of the Iranian navy. Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi has been quoted by semi-official news agency Mehr as saying the two countries are planning “war games” that will be implemented in the “near future”. Iran and Russia have held several naval drills in the Caspian Sea, including in 2015 and 2017, with the Iranian commander saying cooperation between both navies had “strengthened in recent years”. He also praised wider Caspian Sea cooperation as a “model for guaranteeing peace, stability and friendship”. Mehr reported on Sunday the naval commander said: “Tactical, rescue and anti-piracy war games between Iranian and Russian naval forces are being planned and will be implemented in the near future.” The two countries have close ties, including in Syria where they both back President Bashar al-Assad in the country’s civil war. Mr Khanzadi Iran’s opposition to the military presence of any country from outside the region in the Caspian Sea, saying: “All countries around the Caspian have the same approach,” Mehr reported. Russia said last year it was firmly committed to deepening ties with Iran despite a US decision to quit an international nuclear deal and reimpose sanctions on Tehran. Enclosed by land and borderes by Russia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan, the Caspian Sea is the world’s biggest enclosed body of water. The sea is rich in offshore oil and gas deposits worth trillions of dollars. In August Iran and Russia agreed with the three other ex-soviet nations how to divide up the oil and gas resources of the sea, leading the way for more energy exploration. The deal followed a vow made by US president Donald Trump to implement sanctions against Iran’s energy industry in an attempt to restrict its trade of oil. Yesterday Iran sent a menacing warning to the US, threatening to deploy warships in the Atlantic Ocean in response to repeated US deployments in the Persian Gulf. The news came as tensions between Washington and Tehran continued to deteriorate over the former's decision to scrap a landmark nuclear deal and reimpose strict sanctions in response to Iran's alleged ties to revolutionary Shiite Muslim movements across the Middle East and its ballistic missile development. The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), or so-called Iran nuclear deal, was agreed by China, France, Germany, the European Union, Iran, Russia, United Kingdom, United States (who later withdrew under Donald Trump). It was intended to curb Iran’s nuclear energy programme, which the West maintained it was using as a cover up to develop a nuclear bomb. The agreement was struck in return for the lifting of crippling economic sanctions. But Trump withdrew from the deal last year, branding it “decaying and rotten”.

International dignitaries pose by the oil terminal 12. SOUNDBITE (English) Vicky Bailey, Assistant US Energy Secretary "The trust built over nine years of planning and difficult labour will serve us well. It has already served to build a foundation of cooperation that was there when we needed it, on September 11th. It will serve us well in the future as we look to expanding partnership in the energy field." 13. Audience applauds 14. Terminal control room 15. Operator 16. Control panel 17. Screen 18. Pipe 19. Sea waves 20. Oil tanker on the horizon with flags ashore STORYLINE: Energy officials from the US, Russia, Kazakstan and Oman joined international oil executives for the official opening of the pipeline connecting Kazakstan's Tengiz oil field with an export terminal in the southern Russian port of Anapa. Tuesday's ceremony to inaugurate the two point 65 (B) billion US dollars pipeline, the largest foreign investment in Russia to date, came amid a slump in world oil prices and demands by the OPEC that producers cut back. US companies have invested more than one (B) billion dollars in the consortium, which is running a one thousand and 580-kilometre (987 miles) pipeline from Tengiz Anapa, some 800 kilometres (500 miles) south of Moscow. The consortium includes the Russian, Kazak and Oman governments, Chevron, Arco, Shell, Mobil and Agip, as well as smaller firms. The Tengiz field is believed to be the world's sixth-largest oil field. The pipeline has an initial capacity of 28 (M) million tons per year (600-thousand barrels a day) and, if upgraded, it will ultimately have an annual capacity of 67 (M) million tons (one and a half (M) million barrels a day). This according to ChevronTexaco, which funded 30 percent of the project and which will be the biggest customer for the pipeline. Oil from other Kazak and Russian fields is also expected to be shipped through the Caspian pipeline. Russia's first deputy energy minister, Ivan Matlashov, said that one-third of Russian oil exports would come through the terminal. The pipeline was originally scheduled to begin full operations in August, but the opening was postponed over customs and oil quality disputes. It started working in October and 300-thousand metric tons (two point two (M) million barrels) have already been loaded onto tankers. A tanker was moored off Anapa during Tuesday's ceremony, but it could not approach the port for loading because of windy weather whipping up high waves that crashed against the shore. US Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham had to cancel his participation in the ceremony because the pilots of his US Air Force plane decided "the weather was not quite appropriate". Russia expects to collect more than 20 (B) billion dollars in taxes over the next four decades from the pipeline. The pipeline is also expected to give Moscow political clout in the strategic and mineral-rich Caspian region.
