ISIS Oil Operations

Matthew Reed comes back on the show to discuss ISIS oil operations. Some of the topics we covered include:

  • How analysts track ISIS oil operations
  • How much oil ISIS is producing
  • The process of getting oil from the ground to ISIS turning it into cash
  • Coalition attacks on ISIS oil infrastructure
  • Why the US-led coalition is hesitant to completely destroy ISIS’ oil operations
  • What it would take to eliminate ISIS’ ability to profit from oil production
  • Why ISIS doesn’t need to export oil to benefit from it
