Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


- PLEASE READ -

Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.


8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

  • Re: Energy in Azerbaijan

    Things are looking stable for oil in staying on the lower side

    "Long crude is no longer the hot trade.

    Despite signals from OPEC that production cuts could last well into 2018 with larger production curbs than the first, Crude Oil seems to be without a bid.
    US continues with another six added in the first week of May to bring the total US rigs to 703, which is up from 316 a year ago."

    "Iran Plans To Raise Crude Oil Production Capacity By 3 Million Bpd

    … quoting a senior official as saying that the move was aimed at boosting the Islamic Republic’s footing in OPEC and the global market.

        Was reading this on my morning commute and could not have been more happier. I truly do hope that the leadership in Armenia sees what the result of absolute corruption is. xxxx the Azeris. We should aim to be the exact opposite of these retards.

          "Azerbaijan gets 9.5% decline in oil production" <<< This is from one of their Gov. sites. If they are admitting on almost 10% decline, we know it is worse.

          They are doing everything to keep their population under control due to the coming hardships. It is just around the corner.

          "Azerbaijani court blocks Radio Free Europe website

          On Friday Baku's Sabail district court ruled in favour of blocking access to the website of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty's (RFE/RL) Azerbaijani Service, sparking criticism at what is seen as an increasing crackdown on media freedom in the country."

          https://calvertjournal.com/news/show...europe-website


          "France is concerned by the Azerbaijani authorities’ decision to block several Internet news sites in the country.

          It calls on the Azerbaijani authorities to abide by the international commitments they freely entered into and to fully respect the freedom of information and of the press, which are fundamental to the development of civil societies and the consolidation of democratic institutions.
          France will continue to closely monitor the media situation in Azerbaijan."

            Despite capital infusions, bank has been hurt by steep decline in oil prices and subsequent currency fluctuations

            The International Bank of Azerbaijan, the country’s largest lender, filed for bankruptcy in New York Thursday to aid the restructuring of some $3.3 billion in debt."

                Few sites (including Reuters) have been stating that the azeri state oil fund SOFAZ is around $33 billion (2016) according to Shakhmar Movsumov, the fund's executive director.

                In one of the articles I posted it states ...

                "The government has even raided Sofaz, the country’s sovereign wealth fund in order to shore up IBA: Sofaz’s holdings have dropped to a mere $64 million, down from $523 million in 2014."

                  The globalrisks article doesn't provide a citation for the 523 or 64. Proving just how powerful oil is, these retards are still allowed at the table for talks.

                    The goat fkers are not only losing their assets due to low oil prices they are taking down other countries assets with them.

                    "Kazakhstan: Pension Funds Lost in Azerbaijan Venture

                    Kazakhstan’s beleaguered state pensions fund has found itself the target of a fresh bout of public indignation after losing hundreds of millions in a doomed Azerbaijani investment.

                    Privately run broadcaster KTK reported this week that managers at the Single Accumulated Savings Fund, or ENPF in its Russian initials, sunk around 70 billion tenge ($224 million) into the International Bank of Azerbaijan. This lender has recently cited liquidity issues as grounds for failing to respect its international liabilities and filed for bankruptcy.

                    Members of parliament are livid and have accused pension fund managers of incompetence, particularly since there had previously been warnings that the Azerbaijani bank was in trouble."

                    Let us hope we hear less sucking noises coming from the azeri/kazakh love affairs.

                      I find all this interesting and good news.

                      Doing some research on the internet things raise more questions than answers.

                      Most importantly are we confusing invested assets with cash in hand i.e. liquidity issues.

                      https://www.ft.com/content/b8a71de4-...6-00144feab7de

                      This article from FT. states a claim that Sofaz has a pool of investments in real estate in London, Paris, Moscow, Seoul as well as investments in equities and Gold.

                      The value of these investments is 37 Billion.

                      The thing is when investments are acquired or disposed of they are usually announced.
                      There are global registers who also track such acquisitions and disposals.

                      Although this article is dated I am still confused whether Sofaz has liquidity issues or has divested their investment AND have a liquidity crisis.

                      The terms used for their NewYork bank was restructuring.
                      If you are totally broke you cannot restructure but if you have assets against liabilities you need time to divest to meet obligations.

                      Both scenarios are bad for Azerbaijan, however, one outcome requires more patience from us for the expected conclusion.

                      .
                      Politics is not about the pursuit of morality nor what's right or wrong
                      Its about self interest at personal and national level often at odds with the above.
                      Great politicians pursue the National interest and small politicians personal interests
