Rampage lives in Belgium. He may not have very good english skills hence the copy and paste jobs. He knows how to say "clown" though.

Yes, you appear to be correct. With the three official languages being Dutch, French and German, having to master a fourth, English would be a challenge.

My apologies to Rampage.

Iran agrees to export gas to Switzerland: NIGC chief
Apr 19, 2013

“We are currently in talks with Turkey to win the right for gas transit via this country [to Europe],” Javad Owji, who is also managing director of National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC), said on Friday.

Iran, which sits atop the the world's second-largest natural gas reserves after Russia, is Turkey's second-biggest supplier after Moscow.

Owji also said Iran would start pumping natural gas to neighboring Iraq in summer.

“Gas exports to this country will start with seven million cubic meters (mcm) a day and will gradually rise to 25 mcm a day,” the official stated.

He went on to say that Iran will export gas to Iraq through two pipelines, one of which supplies gas to Iraq’s Al-Baghdad and Al-Mansouriyah power plants with the other one delivering gas to the Iraqi port city of Basra.

Iran is trying to boost its gas production by attracting foreign and domestic investments, especially in South Pars Gas Field.

South Pars covers an area of 9,700 square kilometers, 3,700 square kilometers of which is in the Iranian territorial waters in the Persian Gulf. The remaining 6,000 square kilometers, i.e., the North Dome, is situated in Qatar's territorial waters.

North Korea negotiating with Iran over oil imports: Iran minister
Apr 21, 2013

The Iranian oil minister made the remarks in a press conference on the sidelines of the 18th International Oil, Gas, Refining, and Petrochemical Exhibition in Iran’s capital, Tehran, ISNA reported.

Qasemi expressed hope that an agreement would be reached between the two countries considering North Korea’s willingness to import Iran’s crude.

The Iranian minister added that Tehran has economic relations with many countries including Syria, adding that the Islamic Republic is still exporting oil to Damascus despite the recent developments in the country.

Qasemi also said, “We have declared to Lebanon our readiness to participate in their explorations.”

The 18th International Oil, Gas, Refining, and Petrochemical Exhibition opened at Tehran’s permanent International Fairgrounds on April 18.

Qasemi said on April 16 that the oil show in Tehran is “a clear manifestation of the failure and ineffectiveness” of the sanctions engineered by the United States against Iran, adding that the exhibit would showcase the “technical and industrial strength” of Iran’s energy sector.

More than 1,000 Iranian and foreign companies planned to attend the four-day exhibition.

At the beginning of 2012, the US and the European Union imposed new sanctions on Iran’s oil and financial sectors with the goal of preventing other countries from purchasing Iranian oil and conducting transactions with the Central Bank of Iran.

The illegal US-engineered sanctions were imposed based on the unfounded accusation that Iran is pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program.

Iran rejects the allegation, arguing that as a committed signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), it has the right to use nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.

American foreign policy is amazingly dumb. They are now attempting to damage Iran through diplomacy and sanctions whereas, prior to their interference in Irak (the WMD, remember? - how they love that term), Irak was Iran's & Al-Qaeda's natural enemies, and warring with them at every opportunity.
Beats me how Israel let them go ahead with the Invasion.
So, they destroyed the enemy of their enemy!
In this region, South East Asia, they have done the same thing in destroying cultural and political balances, so that it's hard to tell who's who anymore.
American foreign policy is based on a misguided idea that they are the rightful rulers of the planet, and can do anything they choose.
"God bless America", says it all. They live in a fantasy world where stupidity, greed and delusion reign.

Iran will increase gas exports to Turkey: Iranian oil minister
Apr 28, 2013

Iranian Oil Minister Rostam Qasemi says Iran’s natural gas exports to Turkey will increase following the establishment of a planned joint pipeline.

A major pipeline coming from Iran’s southwestern city of Ahvaz has been partially established and it is planned to be completed with the participation of Turkish private companies in order to boost Iran’s gas exports to Turkey, Qasemi said on the sidelines of his Sunday meeting with Turkish Minister of Development Cevdet Yilmaz in Tehran.

The contract for the joint project will be finalized by next month, he added.

The Iranian minister noted that in 2012, transactions in the energy sector comprised over USD 12 billion of the USD 22-billion value of Iran-Turkey trade volume.

“Iran is prepared to meet Turkey’s needs in oil, gas and petrochemical sectors,” he added.

Qasemi pointed to the ample opportunities in Iran’s petrochemical industry for Turkey’s investment, noting, “There is no limitation for the presence of Turkish companies and investors in Iran.”

On Friday, Yilmaz, who is on a visit to Iran, said his country supports the expansion of cooperation with Iran in all areas, in particular in the energy sector and holds a positive view toward the transfer of Iran’s gas to Europe via Turkey.

Turkey is in dire need of energy and also located on a strategic corridor for the transfer of energy, Yilmaz stressed.

Iran, India to hold joint economic commission: Iranian envoy
Apr 28, 2013

Iranian Ambassador to India Gholamreza Ansari says Tehran and New Delhi plan to hold a joint economic commission next week.

The Iranian envoy said on Sunday that the joint economic commission would be held in Iran’s capital, Tehran.

Ansari added that Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi would head the country’s committee while his Indian counterpart Salman Khorshid would lead the Indian delegation.

“About six memoranda of understanding in various economic sectors are being prepared and we hope they will be signed by both sides during the joint commission,” the Iranian official said.

Ansari added that the two foreign ministers would also hold bilateral meetings on the sidelines of the commission.

He said the issue of the Peace pipeline project, also called Iran-Pakistan-India (IPI) gas pipeline, would be discussed at the commission.

In March, Indian Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas M. Veerappa Moily voiced his country’s willingness regarding the pipeline project.

On March 12, Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his Pakistani counterpart Asif Ali Zardari launched the final construction phase of the Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline on the Iran-Pakistan border.

The pipeline is designed to help Pakistan overcome its growing energy needs at a time when the country is grappling with serious energy shortages.

When I saw it was a post from Rampage, I thought I would try out my remote control, the one that switches tv channels, but it didn't work.

I keep getting static and talking heads.

Turkish oil imports from Iran hits 8-month high in April
May 03, 2013

Turkey has raised its April crude oil imports from Iran to average 140,000 barrels per day (bpd), hitting an eight-month high, shipping data shows.

Turkey has been importing an average of 100,000 bpd between September 2012 and February 2013, and in March increased purchases of Iranian oil to 114,000 bpd, despite US sanctions against Iran's energy sector, data showed on Friday.

The United States granted sanctions waivers on Iran oil to Turkey on December 7, 2012. South Korea, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan, were also granted waivers, known as "exceptions."

At the beginning of 2012, the US and the European Union imposed new sanctions on Iran’s oil and financial sectors with the goal of preventing other countries from purchasing Iranian oil and conducting transactions with the Central Bank of Iran.

The illegal US-engineered sanctions were imposed based on the unfounded accusation that Iran is pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program.

Iran rejects the allegation, arguing that as a committed signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency, it has the right to use nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
