Cypriot Licensing Round and "data" regarding Greece

From Cyprus to Crete

E. Conophagos, N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Angeliki Papadopoulou

When we examine the situations at a geological and an energean level in both Cyprus and Crete, we observe significant proportions which should be also utilized at a regional level, since the overall context is delayed in taking effective decisions.

Cyprus warned Turkey Friday that if it re-entered the exclusive economic zone where Nicosia has licensed exploratory drilling there would be no chance of resuming stalled UN-brokered peace talks.

Turkey’s Energy and Natural Resources Minister Taner Yildiz has said that any profits gained from oil and natural gas from the eastern Mediterranean should belong to people the people of Cyprus.

Cyprus to build gas plant with or without Israel.....

Cyprus energy officials estimate that Cypriot waters are estimated to hold at least 60 trillion cubic feet of gas, enough to cover domestic needs for decades and supply Europe's growing demand for the fossil fuel.

NICOSIA, Cyprus — Cyprus' offshore natural gas deposits are enough to warrant the construction of a gas processing plant to export excess supply, regardless of whether Israel decides to be a partner in the project, the island nation's foreign minister said Wednesday.
Ioannis Kasoulides said Cyprus is continuing talks with Israel, which has also discovered its own offshore gas deposits, on ways the countries can best exploit their mineral reserves. Cyprus is particularly keen, hoping its future gas wealth will help pull it out of a crushing economic crisis that has forced it to ask for an international bailout.

Σε ρόλο διαιτητή ΟΗΕ και ΗΠΑ...Σε εξέλιξη πρωτοβουλία για επίλυση διαμάχης Ισραήλ-Λιβάνου για την ΑΟΖ

Έντονη ανησυχία και αγωνία για την επόμενη ημέρα της «αραβικής άνοιξης» επικρατεί στην περιοχή, αφού, σύμφωνα με τον Υπουργό Άμυνας Δημήτρη Ηλιάδη, είναι πολλοί οι φόβοι μήπως την «αραβική άνοιξη» ακολουθήσουν αυταρχικά, φονταμενταλιστικά, εξτρεμιστικά καθεστώτα.
Το Κυπριακό, οι εξελίξεις στην Ανατολική Μεσογείο και η οριοθέτηση των αποκλειστικών οικονομικών ζωνών των χωρών της περιοχής απασχόλησαν συνομιλίες που είχε στον Λίβανο ο Υπουργός Άμυνας Δημήτρης Ηλιάδης. Σύμφωνα με τον κ. Ηλιάδη, υπάρχει σε εξέλιξη μια πρωτοβουλία για επίλυση των διαφορών μεταξύ Λιβάνου και Ισραήλ στο θέμα των αποκλειστικών ζωνών και, όταν διευθετηθεί, θα μπορέσει να επικυρωθεί και η συμφωνία της Κύπρου με τον Λίβανο.
