The #oil and #gas sector has been a crucial contributor to Syrian government revenues and is considered one of the primary sources of sustaining Syrians’ well-being, even though its reserves are small compared with those of other countries in the Middle East.

In 2018, #Syria had an estimated 2.5 billion barrels of oil reserves, compared with Saudi Arabia’s 297 billion, Iran’s 155 billion and Iraq’s 147 billion barrels.

The oil fields are concentrated in the province of Deir ez-Zur, in eastern Syria, near the Iraqi border, and Hassakeh in the north-east which explains the ambitions of the #US occupation and its allies to occupy that area and their mad quest for keeping Syria in turmoil.

It is worth to mention that the oil field of al-Omar and the gas field of Conoco in Deir ez-Zur occupied by the US are the top producing and beneficial oil and gas fields in the country.
