The following gas companies import Middle Eastern oil:

Shell..................................... 205,742,000 barrels
Chevron/Texaco..................... 144,332,000 barrels
Exxon /Mobil........................ 130,082,000 barrels
Marathon/Speedway............. 117,740,000 barrels
Amoco................................... 62,231,000 barrels


Here are some large companies THAT DO NOT import Middle Eastern oil:

Sunoco..........................0 barrels
Conoco.........................0 barrels
0ASinclair.....................0 barrels
BP / Phillips................. 0 barrels
Hess..............................0 barrels
ARC0.............................0 barrels
Maverick........................0 barrels
Flying J.........................0 barrels
Valero..........................0 barrels
Kwik Fill.......................0 barrels
Murphy Oil USA *.........0 barrels

All of this information is available from the U.S. Department of Energy and each company is required to state where they get their oil and how much they are importing.

Just thought this was interesting. Clipped from an email my mother sent me earlier today.

Went to energy.gov and couldn't find the info so I googled it and this was the first entry I found:
Skeptical
Thanks mom.

I'm actually pleasantly surprised Wal-mart (Murphy) doesn't import oil from there. Although with a "world" market, who knows anymore what's really going on.

So if you read the Skeptical link you provided...the info is not true....so how do we really know where the oil comes from?

Almost 50% comes from US and only 5% form Persian gulf....so do we really need to crazy over it? We just need to drill more here.

I've never understood the logic of this perspective.

How is it in America's self-interest to use up more of a finite resource?

Wont that just make it more finite, and make future generations have even less of it?

Wouldn't it be more in US self-interest to use up everyone else s' first?

In a different world, we might be able to nationalize the oil industry, only use our own reserves, set a stable price that doesn't need to fluctuate, develop or just release better technology and inside of fifty years would no longer be in this mess and therefore wouldn't need to worry about running out.

But since oil companies rule right along with bankers, this will never happen. We're going to need to actually come close to running out of oil before this lucrative little scam is ever let go.

Hmmm Interesting thread. I can't find the Oil/Gas lease block maps covering the Persian Gulf to save my life. No idea where the heck I put those..but it is quite a Who's Who of the World's Oil companies to look at it. I'm not sure who said BP wasn't a major player in South Asia and the Middle East for Oil and Gas but.. Hmm... Well, here is the Caspian anyway. This one I did have handy from a story I did a couple days ago on a very similar topic.

www.lib.utexas.edu...

If you look, BP is on not one but multiple lease blocks right off the Iranian Coast... I'll get back here if I ever find the similarly notated lease blocks for the Gulf region...that drives me nuts. Anyway, that is something solid to start with for seeing in black and white who is leasing what in relation to who else and where.
