The Turkish newspaper “Yeni Safak” has lifted the veil of secrecy about the oil fields in Syria.
As it turned out, all the rights in hundreds of oil wells, in Rumailan, Sweden, Kebbeh, Merkida, Tishrin, Gibsah, Shaddadi, Omar, Tanak, Koniko, Al Jufra and Deiru, were transferred to the Israeli company Global Development Corporation (GDC).
Information about the deal was first reported in the Los Angeles Times in early summer.
In an interview with Israel Hayom, Israeli businessman Mordechai Khanna confirmed the agreement between the Kurds and his company.
When the Trump administration gives the green light, we’ll begin to export this oil at fair prices and use it to build and defend a democratic Syria”.
The Turkish newspaper presents interesting details.
Israel’s GDC has been operating in Syria’s oil fields since June, without waiting for Trump to agree to its deal with the Kurds.
The current production of crude oil is about 125 thousand barrels per day.
They want to deliver it in the future to 400 thousand barrels.
The price per metric ton (equal to seven barrels) ranges between 160 and 240 US dollars, or between 22 and 35 dollars per barrel.
The figures are very familiar.
At the beginning of the Syrian crisis, when Islamic State terrorists took control of oil fields, oil was transported to Turkey at this price by tankers.
Then, as the media attests, Erdogan’s family traded him.
Now, Turkey has been cut off from the oil fields by a narrow border corridor.
Oil convoys have no choice but to go south through Iraq to Jordan and Israel.
This route is controlled by the US military.
