  1. [Globes.il – October 31, 2002] Sources inform “Globes” that the Iranian government recently held negotiations to sell its 50% stake in Eilat-Ashkelon Pipeline Co. (EAPC) to the Portuguese World Bank. Adv. Dov Weissglass represented the Portuguese World Bank before he was appointed director of the Prime Minister’s Bureau.

    The Portuguese World Bank, which had received an offer from the Iranian government sources, sent a message through Weissglass that it and other foreign investors conditioned the acquisition of EAPC on the Israeli government also selling its 50% holding.

    EAPC became one of Israel’s largest energy companies, benefiting from benefits and tax breaks not granted to its competitors, thanks to its partial Iranian ownership. The Portuguese World Bank stated it could bring in other investors, and would be prepared to guarantee Israel’s interests in EAPC as a condition of a deal.

  2. From Yossi Melman’s Haaretz article – How Israel lost to the Iranians (2006).

    Its next goal is to purchase oil in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States, in Central Asia and in the Caucasus, to transport it in tankers to Ashkelon, to channel it through the pipeline to Eilat and from there in tankers to Asia’s energy-guzzling markets: China, India, Korea and Japan. So far these efforts have not been successful.

    Our newest development is the Baku-Tibilisi-Ceyhan Pipeline (BTC), which transforms crude oil from Baku at the Caspian Sea all the way to Turkish Ceyhan via Georgia. This 42’ diameter and 1600 Kilometers length pipeline is owned by a cooperation headed by British Petroleum.

    What year was the Georgian assault on South Ossetia with Israeli military advisors?

  4. Pipeline to Turkey or LNG to China? – June 19, 2013

    The Israel government is due to discuss policy on gas exports. Russia, Turkey, the US and Cyprus are all closely following the decision making process. The question that interests these countries is not so much whether Israel will export gas, as how. Constructing a pipeline to Turkey would give Israel entreé to the geopolitical arena and to the major league. Official and unofficial Israeli representatives are already talking to their Turkish counterparts.

  5. Not sure why not to seize it altogether. A government owned company of country turn enemy seems like completely doable/justified.

    Little comment – the Ashdod refinery was built b/c of the pipe but not as part of the joint venture.
