Despite significant security threats and political uncertainty,
the Iraqi oil industry has made a remarkable recovery from war,
sanctions, and widespread neglect under the rule of Saddam Hussein.
How rapidly can Iraqi oil production be expanded? What are the
implications for world oil prices and international energy
security? How should Iraq's oil revenues be distributed to best
serve the needs of its people?
