Map: Iraq’s Oil & Gas Infrastruture

Map: Iraq’s Oil & Gas Infrastruture thumbnail

In January, Iraq  found itself once more  beset by a wave of insurgency, as Sunni extremists took hold of large areas of Ramadi and all of Fallujah, the two main cities in Anbar province. Given its strategic importance to global oil supply, our Design and Production team have put together this map detailing the complex web of Iraq’s oil and gas infrastructure.

    Nice map but they’re not likely to hit that 9m b/d by 2020 …

    What Iraq really needs is a peaceful environment in which to develop their oil. Before Desert Storm, its been TWENTY Years! Iraq fought a terrible war with Iran 1980/88 brought on by that great military genius Saddam Insane. Today, Iraq is still fighting AQ to regain control of the Ramada Inn.

    I’m seeing Iran and Iraq banding together to oust KSA as OPEC’s boss man.

    In this decade, I’m seeing many Iranian restaurants in LA and NYC.

    CNN) — Iraqi police have won back full control of a ministry building stormed by gunmen who took civil servants hostage, security sources said Thursday.
    Six gunmen were killed in the police operation to retake part of the Human Rights Ministry, which is next to the Ministry of Transport in northeast Baghdad. Police killed four militants, while two of the militants detonated suicide vests, the security sources said.
    Two police officers were killed and seven injured in the attack, the sources added. The hostages were freed unharmed.
    Security and Interior Ministry sources earlier said four gunmen and three police officers had been killed.
    Roads were blocked around the Iraqi capital following the attack, and areas leading to Baghdad’s fortified Green Zone were closed.
    The United Nations said 2013 was the deadliest year in Iraq since 2008, with almost 8,000 people killed in violence, most of them civilians.
    Fears of all-out sectarian war have increased since fighting broke out at the end of last year to the west of Baghdad in Anbar province, where al Qaeda-backed militants and Iraqi security forces have been battling for control of Falluja and Ramadi.
    More than 140,000 people have been made homeless since the new conflict erupted, according to Iraq’s Ministry of Displacement and Migration.
    The United Nations said last week it was scaling up its humanitarian response to help those displaced by the violence.

    What the Iraqis really need to rebuild their country and enjoy the same lifestyles as those in the US, is around 3.5 million barrels of oil per day. A tad over what is currently being produced in their country by foreign corporations.

    I wonder how much violence would be occurring in the US, if the US government was in cahoots with China to export all of the American oil and gas out of the country, and the Americans were left with nothing but a pile of rubble?

    Anyone opposed to US domination and control in Iraq in an ‘insurgent’ right? And I mean, everyone. You could an Iraqis thats as atheist as Richard Dawkins or as Pious as the pope-but if you just want the US and its corporations to GTFO, your de-facto, an insurgent.

    Dont seem to matter if you politely ask them go away(like send them a nice letter), or rudely (ie with a bomb), they all fall into the same rigourously defined category of radical Islamic Al-Qaeda lovin insurgent.
