The oil in the Syrian fields, which are protected by the US military, is produced by local authorities, and the proceeds from its sale go to the development of local communities. This statement was made by a senior representative of the US State Department.


The US Department of State told who and why is producing oil in Syria


Answering journalists' question about the possibility of attracting American companies to oil production in eastern Syria, the representative of the US State Department explained that in the US-controlled areas of Syria, oil is produced exclusively by local authorities, and the proceeds from the sale go to the benefit of local communities. The US military, together with representatives of the Kurds "only protect the deposits from seizure."

Oil is produced by local authorities for the benefit of local communities. We have no instructions from the administration (USA) in the Department of State to do anything with oil fields

- he said.

It should be noted that 90% of oil in Syria is extracted precisely on the eastern bank of the Euphrates, where the richest deposits are located. Currently, they are all under the control of the United States and the Kurdish units of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDS).

Earlier, the head of the Pentagon, Mark Esper, said that the United States will protect oil fields from the capture of the Islamic State by terrorists (banned in Russia) and will be ready to strike in response to attempts to seize them.

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, the United States illegally extracts oil and exports it outside Syria for refining, having an illegal monthly income of more than 30 million dollars.

      In Russia they won't believe it, but in Europe many will. They still believe that these are the most "decent" people. At least in the limitrophe, that's for sure, because I live in Estonia myself. But many old people no longer believe these tales.

        But the matter is to give a legitimate look and sense ... Local communities will not be greasy 30 lyam per month? And who authorized the local authorities to arbitrarily extract other people's oil, those who have uninvitedly pressed into Syria and pretending to protect something there, but in fact drag everything they can reach?

      Well, it would be necessary to indicate the numbers of the communities, sorry, military units of the American army and the names of com. the composition of these communities, that is, "local authorities." It will be both evident and evident.

      hi Victor
      IMHO, the return of American warriors, allegedly to protect oil rigs in Syria, is just a smokescreen of Mr. Trump because of the internal political situation in the United States itself. Let me explain what I mean. Recently, Trump is rapidly losing "points" in the election campaign. Even his "supporters" are starting a 180-degree upgrade and accuse the eccentric boss of betraying American interests and values. To remove these charges, Trump and carried out the return of the soldiers, announced the arrangement of two bases and outlined a red line for Assad's troops (and, of course, Russia and Turkey). Well, oil is in transit through Iraq and the same Turkey for sale in order to finance the Kurds, al-Nusra and ISIS units. The classic American colonial scheme, and at the same time slapping its opponents in the elections.

        Trump, of course, "loves oil", after all, these are resources / money in fact, but he wants to really, really like his voters! If, along the way, he aligns the lemma, the other people are not Yankees or some country, he doesn’t care about all this.
        Everything is obvious ... the lover of "good deals" wants to stay, in the oval office, for one more term!

          In the United States, its oil is "at least eat your booty," and the Syrian is a trifle that will go to the salaries of the vassals. As for Trump's desire to stay for a second term, the desire is natural - during the reign, the capital of the Trump family has increased by one and a half times (and after all, Donald is primarily a businessman with ambitions).

    strange some kind of war economy for resources at the minke whales .. $ 30 million a month, despite the fact that they spent on the company (excluding additional costs such as transport and training Kurds, etc.) for 5 years about $ 7 billion - $ 117 million per month.

    What we get: $ 30 million / month it will pay off for them - 19,5 years ..

          Well, buddy, high diamond prices are held because most of the world's production and sales are controlled by only three companies - Alrosa, De Beers and Australians. Bukhara Jew Levaev is still there.
          Otherwise, diamond prices would have climbed down for a long time, and everyone knows this, and therefore they are attracted to mining.

    What development and what communities? Lying is certainly not forbidden, but you also need to know when to stop. When it was the Americans who worried about the local population, and even more so for entire communities in those regions where the hostilities were being conducted. They don't even help with humanitarian aid. When the fact of theft of oil from a foreign state became the property of the world media, then suddenly they bleated about the "development of local communities."

          And the fact that Syrian oil from ISIS for several years went through Turkish ports to Europe (in particular) under the strict guidance of members of the Erdogan family and under the guise of the Turkish army and the so-called coalition led by the overseas regional committee ... Everything was photographed and the columns of fuel trucks and port transshipment.

    Yes, everything is very simple. One of the main sources of budget revenue was taken from the Syrian economy. Assad doesn’t want to leave, they couldn’t take him off by military means, we will. At the same time, they will not naturally restore the country they destroyed. Assad will sit, well, but then at whose expense, of course, to Russia. They will burden our budget with additional costs, a little and this will weaken our economy.
    And they will not leave the oil fields, as well as from Iraq. To do this, they went there. They only need to be knocked out of there, but you yourself already understand the conflict, which can lead to a global one.
