Middle East Oil Crisis

Libya revolution has shown how frail is our economy and how even small sized protests in a small but important country as Bahrain can send shock waves all over the world. As more protests are sure to spread to other countries in the region (with Saudi of course being the key domino whose potential fall would send crude well over $200), below you can find some stats on who is who in the vital oil business. All attention is shifting again to developments in Bahrain, which contrary to the media black out, have not been put under control at all. There are also unconfirmed rumors that Al Jazeera may have allegedly received a "request" from Saudi Arabia to not cover recent events in the region and this is another indication of how tense the situation is getting in the Arabian peninsula.
