Could Saudis turn Nat. Gas to Electricity and not need a gas pipeline through Syria,run electric cable through Suez Canal and Mediterranean
If cost is considered maybe it would be a better way to get energy to Europe. Could use the Saudi electricity to make liguid hydrogen in Europe if needed. More sane than shipping LP from the US perhaps?

They could, but could they also dig a big hole in the desert, jump in, and cover it over and fuck off to save the entire world a lot of grief?

they could get gas under their own land but then that would mean drilling holes in that bunker trump opened with the kings ball.

Current plan---Two words...lives lost. If the big picture with all the mercenary/isis/migrants/innocent lives harmed,killed/tax $/alternative energy... concerns is considered, electric lines would be vastly cheaper than a pipeline through Syria.

Saudi doesn't have massive natural gas resources. Even their own likely hugely inflated estimates of reserves aren't exactly world-beating. They wouldn't burn as much oil for internal electricity production at peak times if they really had all the gas they claimed...

Yes a worldwide massive HVDC grid would still be great if everyone trusted everyone else.

You must be Chinese...

Or made one hell of a lucky guess.

A lesser known part of the Chinese belt and road initiative is a grid of ultra high voltage transmission lines throughout the world to do just that.

The issue being that now the Chinese can turn off your power or tell you how much power you are getting and forcibly deindustrialize you, but yes it can be done and the Chinese want to

Everybody shouldn't trust everybody else.

Being completely dependent on a worldwide grid SOMEBODY WILL OWN is a recipe for disaster and tyranny.

People need to grow up tell the green lunatics to shit the fuck up and assure their national sovereignty with independent grids.

I thought power lines lose some power over distance. So, I don't think that system would ever be as efficient.

There is “line loss” in a Nat.gas pipeline as well. Guessing greater loss than in a high voltage electric line. (Electricity/Nat. Gas used to power the compressors)
