Background: The building of a Suez-Alexandria oil pipeline has just been announced. The 207-mile (331 kilometre) pipeline will carry oil from the Suez oil facilities to the Mediterranean, eliminating the need for tankers to either navigate the currently-impassable Suez Canal or take the lengthy journey round the Cape in South Africa.
