Oil & World Politics

The real story of today’s conflict zones:
Iraq, Afghanistan, Venezuela, Ukraine and more

By John Foster


Welcome to my blog, with petroleum stories from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Ukraine, and other parts of the world. The stories may be about the petroleum resources of a country. They may relate to a country’s strategic location – as a route for pipelines or a place in close proximity to significant sea routes. Petroleum is only part of the geopolitics, yet it deserves public attention. It is a vital resource for all modern economies, a source of enormous wealth and power. The evidence of international rivalry over petroleum is overwhelming. I call it the Petroleum Game.
