Israel imports 99 percent of its crude oil
To my knowledge, Israel does not produce any oil at all. From whom does Israel import its oil?I guess that means "No War for Oil" is now synonymous with 'No war for Israel."
A: Israel produces only a few thousand barrels a month itself, so 99 percent of its crude oil is imported. Most of it comes from Russia and the "-stans," and a little from Egypt. Azerbaijan, a landlockd Caspian Sea country, provides about 20 percent of Israel's oil. That may increase with use of the new Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline, built to get oil from the Caspian Sea area to the Mediterranean Sea.
