    Nice read for those interested in History of Oil But rather than giving many irrelevant insider stories, it could have been much better if author would have correlated world events with events in oil industry Many rubbish details make it a tedious book and fouls the fun of the book.

    Fascinating Period History of Oil from 1900 1975Why read a chronicle of the world oil industry that ends in 1975 So much has happened in the last 40 years, and so many events have been unpredictable from the overthrow of many of the regimes of the Middle East and North Africa to the emergence of fracking and other technologies that have changed the supply and demand equation in ways no one foresaw when this book was written.This remains a valuable book, if only to provide the reader with a se Fascinating Period History of Oil from 1900 1975Why read a chronicle of the world oil industry that ends in 1975 So much has happened in the last 40 years, and so many events have been unpredictable from the overthrow of many of the regimes of the Middle East and North Africa to the emergence of fracking and other technologies that have changed the supply and demand equation in ways no one foresaw when this book was written.This remains a valuable book, if only to provide the reader with a sense of perspective about how we got to where we are in international relations with oil producing nations and humility about our ability to predict the future Anthony Sampson is a wonderful writer, bringing to life the distinctions among each of the seven oil companies that dominated the world of oil in 1975, and providing character studies of the powerful individuals he was able to meet and interview, including Saudi oil minister Sheikh Zaki Yamani, the Shah of Iran, and many others 1975 was a pivotal year and it looked at the time that the industrialized world would be hostage to OPEC to an unprecedented degree As the Chairman of Gulf Oil said, It s taken OPEC fifteen years to put together an absolutely magnificent organization that succeeded in getting world oil prices up by a factor of four in a month s time They d have to be utterly mad to do anything as stupid as go out and compete with each other to drive down the price of oil Well, in fact, fractures among the members of OPEC led to just such competition, and the instability of political leadership not only in Middle East countries such as Iran, Iraq, and Libya, but also in producing countries such as Russia, Venezuela, and Angola, have shown that OPEC is not a monolithic organization able to impose cartel pricing on the consuming countries of the world For the major oil companies, the challenge of managing great swings in supply and demand, so characteristic of the 20th Century and chronicled in this book, carry forward to this day At one moment, everyone was worried that we will run out of oil and at the next moment the companies were terrified of being drowned in a glut of oil whether from the discoveries at Spindletop in Texas in 1901, in Venezuela in the 1920s, or exploitation of the vast reserves in the Gulf States of the Middle East at the end of World War II Up until the 1960s, the oil companies were worried about having too much oil, not too little So even though in 1953 the British and American governments were behind the overthrow of elected Iranian leader and his replacement by the Shah, the Seven sisters did not want oil to flow from Iran at the time because of fear of an oil glut depressing prices Today, of course, we have an oil glut and price drop brought on by slowing global economic growth and the fracking technology that has made the US, once again, self sufficient in oil But in reading history, we should assume that this, too, is a temporary imbalance If anything, the power of international oil companies has becomeconcentrated The Seven Sisters are now the four sisters, with the merger of Exxon and Mobil, and Chevron having acquired both Texaco and the production assets of Gulf Oil BP has grown with the acquisition of Standard Oil of Indiana American , and Shell remains a member of the Big Four global companies Sampson also provides useful historical context for the reasons the West is so resented in countries such as Iran, Iraq, and Libya, as well as the background of economic as well as religious rivalries among these producing nations The needs and interests of those countries with large populations are much different than those of Kuwait or the Emirates with very small populations to satisfy In summary, read in the proper context, this book is relevant background to understanding the power of Big Oil today, and to thoughtful consideration of energy policy as we look forward to the challenges of the 21st Century
