Saudis, Others Cuts All Ties with Qatar – LNG Opportunity?

The following story intrigued us, not the least of which because it has the potential to affect the Marcellus/Utica region. Out of the blue, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain have all “cut ties” with the country of Qatar.

The channel flopped, big-time. So Al and his buddies sold it in 2013–to Qatar. Well, actually it was sold to Al Jazeera, the official Qatar state-run media agency, owned by the ruling family of Qatar. Qatar didn’t want the channel, which they immediately threw in the trash. They wanted access to all of the cable systems the channel was running on for their Al Jazeera station. Yeah, you don’t hear about it much, but Al Gore sold his TV channel to terrorist-friendly Qatar–for $500 million. Back let’s get back to the Marcellus.
