Boreat Oil

What would Borat think of this?

The local energy sector continues to draw attention, and the latest interested party is Kazakhstan. The central Asian country is considering a bid for the Haifa oil refinery when it goes public next year, Kazakhstan’s Deputy Prime Minister Karim Masimov announced this week.

 

Masimov said his country is also interested in taking part in the infrastructure corridor project between Turkey and Israel, which has recently picked up speed.

Masimov, who took part in a University of Haifa conference entitled “Transit – Global Energy and Political Trends”, discussed the importance of his country on the international stage in light of its good relations with Israel and its status as an oil supplier.

 

Kazakhstan intends to hook up soon to the BTC pipeline, which transports oil from the Caspian Sea region through the Uzbek capital of Baku and the Georgian capital of Tbilisi to Ceyhan in Southeastern Turkey, from where the new infrastructure corridor will bring oil and natural as to Israel and perhaps even to Egypt.

 

Masimov said that in talks with the Israeli government about hooking up Israel to the BTC line, “we have shown our readiness for the project.”

It’s great to see that the Kazakhstanis are more interested in oil than horse urine, assuming that this is not just a scheme to throw a Jew down the well.
