Company In Which Joe Biden's Son Is Director Prepares To Drill Shale Gas In East Ukraine

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Recall what we said earlier today: the proxy Ukraine war just like that in Syria preceding it, "is all about energy."

Recall also the following chart showing Ukraine's shale gas deposits, keeping in mind that the Dnieper-Donets basin which lies in the hotly contested eastern part of the nation and where as everyone knows by now a bloody civil war is raging, is the major oil and gas producing region of Ukraine accounting for approximately 90 per cent of Ukrainian production and according to EIA may have 42 tcf of shale gas resources technically recoverable from 197 tcf of risked shale gas in place.

 

Finally, recall our story from May that Joe Biden's son, Hunter, just joined the board of the largest Ukraine gas producer Burisma Holdings. From the press release:

R. Hunter Biden will be in charge of the Holdings’ legal unit and will provide support for the Company among international organizations. On his new appointment, he commented: “Burisma’s track record of innovations and industry leadership in the field of natural gas means that it can be a strong driver of a strong economy in Ukraine. As a new member of the Board, I believe that my assistance in consulting the Company on matters of transparency, corporate governance and responsibility, international expansion and other priorities will contribute to the economy and benefit the people of Ukraine.”

 

R. Hunter Biden is also a well-known public figure. He is chairman of the Board of the World Food Programme U.S.A., together with the world’s largest humanitarian organization, the United Nations World Food Programme. In this capacity he offers assistance to the poor in developing countries, fighting hunger and poverty, and helping to provide food and education to 300 million malnourished children around the world.

 

Company Background:

 

Burisma Holdings is a privately owned oil and gas company with assets in Ukraine and operating in the energy market since 2002. To date, the company holds a portfolio with permits to develop fields in the Dnieper-Donets, the Carpathian and the Azov-Kuban basins. In 2013, the daily gas production grew steadily and at year-end amounted to 11.6 thousand BOE (barrels of oil equivalent – incl. gas, condensate and crude oil), or 1.8 million m3 of natural gas. The company sells these volumes in the domestic market through traders, as well as directly to final consumers.

Now put it all together and what happens next should be rather clear.

* * *

Still confused? It's very simple, really.

In a nutshell Ukraine (or rather its puppetmasters) has decided to let no crisis (staged or otherwise) or rather civil war, go to waste, and while the fighting rages all around, Ukrainian troopers are helping to install shale gas production equipment near the east Ukrainian town of Slavyansk, which was bombed and shelled for the three preceding months, according to local residents cited by Itar Tass. The reason for the scramble? Under peacetime, the process was expected to take many years, during which Europe would be under the energy dictatorship of Putin. But throw in some civil war and few will notice let alone care that a process which was expected to take nearly a decade if not longer while dealing with broad popular objections to fracking, may instead be completed in months!

Civilians protected by Ukrainian army are getting ready to install drilling rigs. More equipment is being brought in,” they said, adding that the military are encircling the future extraction area.

 

The people of Slavyansk, which is located in the heart of the Yzovka shale gas field, staged numerous protest actions in the past against its development. They even wanted to call in a referendum on that subject. Environmentalists are particularly concerned with the consequences of hydrofracing, a method used for shale gas extraction, because it implies the use of extremely toxic chemical agents which can poison not only subsoil waters but also the atmosphere. Experts claim that not a single country in the world has invented a method of utilization of harmful toxic agents in the process of development of shale gas deposits.

Countries like the Czech Republic, the Netherlands and France have given up plans to develop shale gas deposits in their territories.

Not only them but also all-important Germany, which two weeks ago announced it would halt shale-gas drilling for the next seven years over groundwater pollution concerns.

Which clearly makes Ukraine, potentially the last place with massive shale gas deposits and no drilling ban, quite valuable to those who want to develop a major source of shale gas, one which reduces Europe's reliance on Russian gas even more, yet one whose future depends on one simple question: who controls East Ukraine?

Because what better way to accelerate "next steps" than to start drilling for gas in the middle of the Donetsk republic as a civil war is waging in all directions, and where public mood has shifted decidedly against the local "separatists" in the aftermath of the MH-17 tragedy.

The punchline: who will develop the gas field in conjunction with Shell (jointly owned by the Netherlands and the UK: the two countries that loathe Putin the most in the aftermath of the MH-17 disaster) which in May 2012 announced a tender for the right to develop the Yuzovka shale gas deposit?

Burisma, Ukraine’s oil and gas production holdings, also has the right to develop the shale gas fields in the Dnieper-Donetsk basin of Eastern Ukraine. The same Burisma where R. Hunter Biden, Joseph's son, was appointed a director two months ago.

I come to this site to get a free-market, liberty oriented take on world events yet the comments sections are inundated with Marxist tripe about all wars being banksters' wars and all regional conflicts revolving around natural resources. Bullshit. Religion, ethnicity and culture are at the heart of conflicts today as much as they have been for the past five thousand years. Means of production are just one, and even then a peripheral, consideration of warring nations today. (I'm not talking about the US, which happens to be an exception to the rule, as were all empires. ) Wars for material gain are a luxury only wealthy countries can afford - all the rest fight to maintain their statuses (religious, ethnic, cultural). Material gains resulting from victory are a byproduct.

Before I figured out the Red Team/Blue Team paradigm, I loved Stewart.  He's the closest thing to Carlin we have in the mainstream.  But he's too Blue Team now for my taste (he still too often ignores what they do and only focuses on what they say).  Either way, I think your idea that he's a zionist plant is incorrect.

He very well might be. It is interesting because he completely controls the millenials brains. So for him to be planting seeds in their brains about Israel is kind of interesting. Considering the rest of hollywood zigged and he zagged on the topic I guess is different to see.

The thing that is really great about Carlin is that he saw the matrix long before almost any of us did, and certainly before anyone called it that.  I don't know if Stewart also does and just uses it, or if he's in it.  Time will tell.

I feel the same.  I can't really fault a guy who's Jewish for being somewhat biased in favor of Israel, the country is full of people with a soft spot for "the motherland" or some such.  Good amount of Scottish people of Irish origin that are doubly disposed to not feel "British."  Anyway, I don't think he's anything like a Zionist plant or whatever, and frankly, I've heard people throw the "gatekeeper" thing at Chomsky, even Finkelstein - don't think it's a reasonable assessment if you look at the proverbial body of work, but that's just my opinion.

The reason why I don't bother watching him, or Bill Maher, is that there's plenty on the Left/Dem side that escapes their wit and sarcasm, and it is, especially in Maher's case, a little too biased.

 

I don't like the religious right, say, either, but this blaming the Tea Party shit has gone well beyond reasonable.  At least Daily Show goes after Obama pretty well.  Maher, and guys like Keith Olbermann, were Carlinesque against Big Brother when it was Bush, but their partisanship has made them hypocrites for the past 6 years.

Then again...  I detest Pelosi and Reid, but the way I look at it, absolutely no one is worse than McCain and Graham and a handful of GOP neocon cunts. 

 

And watching Rand Paul has been painful.  But then again, again...  as a practical matter, anyone who doesn't kiss the Israel Lobby's ring can simply do nothing.  And that's not RP's fault - that's the fault of the fat, lazy, brainwashed public.

I mean the US Congress has been bought by Israel - and what truly boggles the mind is the sheer, brazen audacity of those disgusting pukes who claim criticism of the Israel Lobby's power is "anti-Semitic."  I don't think most people are perturbed by the ethnic make up or myths, but by the hijacking, against our interests, by deeply embedded agents of a small foreign power looking to use American soldiers, airmen, seamen, and Marines as sword and shield to remake the ME for some fucked up delusion about recreating a regional superpower ethnarchy  -  that never even existed. And with zero - ZERO regard for the lives of tens of thousands of innocent people.

They don't. But America is still the silicon valley of E&P and fracking experience and technologies are very much concentrated here and not in Europe.

Escrava, you may have something to share with us, but you continue to hide behind some kind of facade.  A long fkn time ago, the pope declared that he, and he alone was the manifestation of god on earth.  From that edict forward, all sorts of idiotic codified law ensued.

And, a whole lot of people still believe that bullshit.

The law is the fkn law.  The sun will rise in the east, and set in the west.  If I encroach upon my brother, the community will shun me.

I already know the answer, but why is it so hard for my brothers and sisters to grasp?

acetinker,

Sorry that I did not make myself clear. Ukraine is a "Domino Effect"—it has to remain dependent. The godfather would be either Russia or US.

It's irrelevant owning a pipeline that has no gas. So why Ukraine is fighting Russia is beyond me.

Now, if Ukraine keeps fighting Russia, they will become desperately without gas. So fracking to the rescue? Will that work? The propaganda machine will make sure of that. Just ask Americans. I did, and most believe that we will be oil independent. And I live in Washington, DC.

Key Point: There is something really bad to happen. Some major bank/nation/stock market failure that might trigger a run out of the dollar.

Anyway, could you clarify to this forum why you said: “the pope declared that he, and he alone was the manifestation of god…

Then, you said: “If I encroach upon my brother, the community will shun me…I already know the answer, but why is it so hard for my brothers and sisters to grasp?

Correction about no fracking in France (they try, they try all the time, they try everywhere): Lundin Petroleum, swedish company, has been planning to develop fracking in the south of France. Numerous protests have ensued, and now that the project seems to have gotten new legs, protests are planned for the next days. Silence from the authorities, representatives being "unavailable" for comments or explanations.

Story link for those who read French:

http://www.reporterre.net/spip.php?article6065

According to the article, Lundin Petroleum is a ruthless operation linked to population deplacements in Congo, Ethiopia, and Sudan, among other niceties.

So you really believe there's life after death… So then, what will happen when you discover you were wrong? It’s obvious that you don’t.

Now, go and read Revelation 17 & 18. Then, you tell me that, that writing is not done by a sick person?

MSM news showed Russian weapons massing on the border via US satellite images. The claim (of course) is that these will roll across the border to the rebels. No one asked the more obvious question - where are the US satellite images of the BUK batteries in eastern Ukraine on July 17th?

I have my doubts energy is the sole purpose of war in Ukraine. Maybe oil/gas is simply a spoil of war with an intrinsic value and a secondary PR value as well. I.e. build a casus beli narrative that shades the larger purpose?

BTW, a cliff clavin factoid, the last I checked, 80% of all the oil wells ever drilled were drilled in the continental US.

Americans have a terminal case of the "Fuck-its". 

The fuck its are a medical anomaly that occur when your laziness gets the better of you. Usually happens when pressing matters are soon to arrive, such as projects due the next day or chores to be done around the house or economic and social collapse are imminent (due to obvious fascist/psychopathic take over of ones government, financial system, media and entertainment industries). Symptoms include:
Coughing while saying fuck it.
Laziness.
Boredom.
Willingness to watch the world slip into the next Dark Ages.
The desire to go smoke weed or pack a lip. Oh crap i have a project due tomorrow morning. Or, what little wealth i have worked for is being taken away from me in front of my eyes.  Alright i have to do something about  this.
*5 minutes later
Cough, fuck it, Cough, oh man i got the fuck its, cough cough,  fuck it,  enhhh fuck it,  wheres my skoal and vaporizer pen.
