L-għaġġla ta’ Joseph spiċċat ?

gas at Marsaxlokk

Il-Prim Ministru qal li m’hemmx ħtieġa li l-power station ta’ Delimara tkun bdiet topera bil-gass għax il-Gvern xorta ser ikompli jraħħas il-kontijiet tad-dawl u l-ilma. F’Marzu li ġej , qalilna, jikkonferma li ser jorħsu l-kontijiet għan-negozji.  Tajjeb.

Ħarsu sewwa lejn l-artiklu li kitbet iktar kmieni illum Marlene Farrugia Membru Parlamentari Laburista. Il-mistoqsija li qed tagħmel Marlene jagħmilha kulħadd. Mela it-tanker fil-port m’hemmx bżonnu?

Jiena mmur pass ieħor.

Għaddew iktar minn sena u nofs u x-xogħol fuq l-impjant tal-gass għadu ma bediex. Meta wara l-elezzjoni tal-2013 kien għaddej id-dibattitu pubbliku l-Gvern ta’ Joseph Muscat kien insista li ma setax jistenna l-pipeline tal-gass għax dak idum u ried soluzzjoni ta’ malajr li seta jasal għaliha biss bit-tanker.

Iż-żmien igerbeb u t-tanker tal-gass għadu ma ġiex.

L-għaġġla donnha li issa spiċċat. Jiġifieri kien possibli li nippjanaw għal pipeline tal-gass.

  1. Apologies Karm but your piece this time is not up to much. Even if one multiplies Muscat’s ‘a few months’ by 2 and says a years’ delay that would still be very much shorter than a gas pipeline. I am not rooting for the LNG tanker inside M’Xlokk by saying this. All I am saying is that your linking the delay to going for a gas pipeline does not make sense. As for the Marlene Farrugia article, I need to read it again to see what she is saying exactly. At first blush it looks like confusion worse confounded.

    • As a matter of fact it is not just a few months: its much more.

      I am aware that then pipeline would take around 5 years. But at this rate, with the Power Station being substantially behind schedule (it had to be completed by March 2015 and it is not yet started) it would have made more sense to go for the pipeline!

  2. Let us all also not forget, that the price of fuel is going down drastically. At the time of writing this comment, the price per barrel is about 87USD. It is very close to the 85USD mark that Austin or Dalli had promised to reach for the price of electricity bills to go down to the levels of pre-2010.
    I may be presumptuous, but considering the unrest in Ukraine, and the lowering of the price of fuel, the possibility of gas becoming more expensive than fuel, might turn out to be a reality.
    …and then what ?
