Quest Chapter 14: Shifting Sands in the Persian Gulf

Consider the following questions

  • How does the Pennsylvania compare to the Middle East as the Center of Oil Industry?
  • How did World War II set the stage for more oil development?

This is a review of the development of the oil industry in the Middle East. Throughout the lessons, this can get confusing and lacking big picture coherence. So, this one page of review brings the Middle East pre-World War II development back. Now, we just had our lesson about when the realization of the oil opportunities in the Middle East are truly coming to light. Just to see the foundation for the Middle East Oil Industry as the greatest Prize.
