United States has ASKED Israel to check possibility of pumping oil from Iraq to Haifa

U.S. checking possibility of pumping oil from northern Iraq to Haifa, via Jordan

By Amiram Cohen

The United States has asked Israel to check the possibility of pumping oil from Iraq to the oil refineries in Haifa. The request came in a telegram last week from a senior Pentagon official to a top Foreign Ministry official in Jerusalem.


The Prime Minister´s Office, which views the pipeline to Haifa as a "BONUS"---(FOR GOING TO WAR FOR THEM me)---- link to www.godlikeproductions.com] alt='wall'> the U.S. could give to Israel in return for its unequivocal support for the American-led campaign in Iraq, had asked the Americans for the official telegram.

The new pipeline would take oil from the Kirkuk area, where some 40 percent of Iraqi oil is produced, and transport it via Mosul, and then across Jordan to Israel. The U.S. telegram included a request for a cost estimate for repairing the Mosul-Haifa pipeline that was in use prior to 1948. During the War of Independence, the Iraqis stopped the flow of oil to Haifa and the pipeline fell into disrepair over the years.

The National Infrastructure Ministry has recently conducted research indicating that construction of a 42-inch diameter pipeline between Kirkuk and Haifa would cost about $400,000 per kilometer. The old Mosul-Haifa pipeline was only 8 inches in diameter.........

Re: United States has ASKED Israel to check possibility of pumping oil from Iraq to Haifa
MY POINT FOR POSTING THIS.IT IS A LONG ARTICLE--BUT CHECK THIS.Again this is from an ISRAELI PAPER!!!! LOOK AT THE ACTUAL OIL THAT IS BEING EXPORTED FROM IRAQ--IF TRUE--PATHETIC


Iraq is one of the world´s largest oil producers, with the potential of reaching about 2.5 million barrels a day. Oil exports were halted after the Gulf War in 1991 and then were allowed again on a limited basis (1.5 million barrels per day) to finance the import of food and medicines.(

((((((((( Iraq is currently exporting several hundred THOUSAND barrels of oil per day.)))))))))))
ALL THOSE DEATHS FOR WHAT!!!

Oil to Haifa in Israel must go thru another country, quite likely Jordan as better bet than Syria or Lebanon. I just don´t see it happening. What moxie! What chutzpah!!

YES--this one thru Jordan--idea is US to put pressure on Turkey.Turkey,on the other hand,has already expressed its displeasure at Israel.

So look for a Turkey/Kurd conflict.

The pipeline has been there since the late l940´s. I thought that the pipeline was shipping oil within the first six weeks of the war, or so the rumor had it.
