Bomb attack halts oil flow through Kirkuk pipeline

Production

A bomb attack halted crude flow through the pipeline running from Iraq’s Kirkuk oilfields to the Mediterranean port of Ceyhan in Turkey, officials at Iraq’s North Oil Company (NOC) said on Sunday.

The attack took place at midnight on Saturday near the city of Mosul and the officials at state-run NOC said repair work would be complete in 72 hours as long as there were no further security issues.

    Ho hum…

    “Bomb attack halts oil flow through ____________ pipeline.”

    Fill in the current name. This is going to be the norm, not the exception as we roll towards the end.

    Eventually, the west will no longer be able to afford the military might, to continue to guard the oil, that they are taking from other countries. An uprising in Saudi Arabia alone, would have far reaching societal, and economic consequences.

    Think it can’t happen? Think again.

    Arab regimes will need the money, so they will deliver the oil to the highes bidder. Yes, bombing of pipelines will be a regular occuring event, but counter measures will become ever more ruthless as well.

    And regardless of who rules Saudi-Arabia, any regime there will sell. Income=power.

    I expect that after Pax Americana recedes in a couple of years, Turkey will take over the entire Middle-East and provide ‘security’, not necessarily in line with western humanitarian standards.
