Israel to Nix UAE Pipeline
By Micah Halpern

Saturday November 27, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

Israel’s energy minister, Karine Elharrar, is recommending cancelling the proposed oil deal between Israel and the UAE.

Elharrar’s office issued an official statement that was broadcast on Israeli Army Radio. It read: "I am calling to cancel the EAPC agreement. It poses many risks to the Gulf of Eilat, to residents, and it does not benefit Israel's energy market."

The proposal was to have UAE tankers, filled with oil, arrive in the Red Sea port of
Eilat and off-load the oil. Israel would build a pipeline from Eilat to a Mediterranean port and then up-load the oil to tankers and ship that oil to Europe.

The plan never really considered either environmental costs or environmental dangers.

Israel’s energy minister is not alone in her concerns. Even the Israeli supreme court demanded an explanation for this venture and a plan that would protect the environment.
