#IslamicState is a threat to South Stream and Blue Stream

A'oedoe billahi minasj sjaitaani radjiem.

Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim

Allah says:

They will wish to get out of the Fire, but never are they to emerge therefrom, and for them is an enduring punishment.


Narrated Mu'adh ibn Jabal: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: The flourishing state of Jerusalem will be when Yathrib is in ruins, the ruined state of Yathrib will be when the great war comes, the outbreak of the great war will be at the conquest of Constantinople and the conquest of Constantinople when the Dajjal (Antichrist) comes forth. He (the Prophet) struck his thigh or his shoulder with his hand and said: This is as true as you are here or as you are sitting (meaning Mu'adh ibn Jabal). Hadith found in 'Battles (Kitab Al-Malahim)' number 4281 of Sunan Abu-Dawud

As the war wages in the #IslamicState, the South Stream pipeline will cross the Black Sea from the Russian coast of Beregovaya (the starting point of the Blue Stream pipeline where a compressor station is sited) to #Mariopol all the way to #Crimea so that Russia's controversial South Stream pipeline, would transport gas via the Black Sea into Europe towards the end of the decade.


The first pipeline laying vessel is slated to enter the Turkish exclusive economic zone in first-quarter 2015. The pipeline’s offshore section will have four strings, each more than 930 km long.
The future of the 2,400-km (1,490-mile) pipeline from Russia via the Black Sea to Turkey and Bulgaria too and from there further into the European Union, avoiding Ukraine, is possible because of Russia's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine.
South Stream would carry around 60 billion cubic meters (bcm) of gas a year to Europe towards the end of the decade, enough to meet more than 10 percent of its annual demand.
Russia will also be able to feed directly with the pipeline the Marmara region of Turkey, which has the highest level of consumption.
The construction of a second Blue Stream pipeline, complementing an existing one that runs under the Black Sea from Russia to central Turkey, could also come onto the agenda soon.

 

Should re-routing South Stream directly into Turkey not work because of terrorist attacks and other forms of violence during the many years ahead by #IslamicState, an alternative would be to suspend the line's extension from Bulgaria towards Italy and instead use its gas to supply western Turkey, a short distance south of its Bulgarian landfall.
But…
“Turkey may overtake Italy as Gazprom's second-biggest customer in Europe after Germany within a decade, and the Turks have already requested an extension to Blue Stream, which brings Russian gas via the Black Sea to central Turkey,” said an advisory source who works with Gazprom on European supplies.

This will be obstructed too because Abdullah ibn Busr narrated: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said “The time between the great war and the conquest of the city (Constantinople) will be six years, and the Dajjal (Antichrist) will come forth in the seventh.” Sunan Abu-Dawud number 4283  
 
It is worth to note that #IslamicState obstructed Putin's pipeline project linking Grozny with Yerevan and Tartous because of the ongoing terrorist attacks and other forms of violence the past years.
