Dubai widens search for oil deals as sanctions cut flow from Iran

Associated Press -- Dubai's government-run oil company says it has started importing supplies from Qatar and is seeking other sources in apparent moves to replace Iranian crude lost because of international sanctions.

Sunday's statement from the Emirates National Oil Co. said it could seek to expand imports from the Middle East and Asia to help meet rising demand in the city-state, which has little of its own oil unlike neighboring Abu Dhabi.

The statement did not mention Iran, but Dubai was a major buyer of Iranian condensate — light oil ready for refineries — and faced U.S. pressure to stop the flow.

Dubai widens search for oil deals as sanctions cut flow from Iran? Dubai doesn't have enough oil of their own and they have to import it? Are the international sanctions really working against Iran? As the World Turns and things happen! What next?

Sanctions never work. They always make exceptions, some countries won't play, there's always smuggling. If you want to make an impression on Iran, the quickest way is to blow the crap out of their nuclear facilities.

No worry, Iran will just back door it through Qatar or even Abu Dhabi. I would be surprised if it is not already happening.

Dubai Widens Search for Oil - because of Iran sanctions - ????

Guess Dubai is looking for a way to make some more money, especially if the sanctions last a while.

When...I mean WHEN will the global market see that we are sitting on more oil than the entire OPEC cartel? DRILL, REFINE, SHIP! We have the infrastructure. Gasoline should be under $2.00/gallon for ALL countries friendly to our ideals. $7.00 to those who are not.
