On friday the long awaited news that the Saipem would be leaving, was confirmed. The Saipem 12000 will drill elsewhere says Cypriot minister. Now the real question is if it will go to Morocco or will come to the Alentejo Basin in the south of Portugal. We will just have to wait and see.

A notice that Turkish ships threatened to sink ENI's drill ship SAIPEM 12000, was in our opinion a missed opportunity to do some good for Portugal. Had it happened it would have really put a halt to ENI's attempt to drill our beautiful coast. At least for a while ... as it stands, the threat that the Saipem 12000 will be in Portuguese waters shortly is very real.

The Saipem 12000 Drillship three support vessels will carry out loading and unloading in the next three to four days as the drillship has anchored in international waters, about 17 nautical miles southeast of the port of Limassol.

Turkey's confrontation with an Italian drilling ship in the eastern Mediterranean Sea could quickly reach crisis proportions. As I noted in an Al-Monitor story Dec. 26, developments were warning of growing tension between Turkey and the Greek Cypriots over newly discovered hydrocarbon reserves south of the island.

Cyprus was taking all necessary diplomatic steps to resolve peacefully the harassment of ENI’s drillship Saipem 12000 by Turkish warships and avoid an escalation, President Nicos Anastasiades  said on Sunday.
