"Iraq holds more than 112 billion barrels of oil -- the world's second largest proven reserves. Iraq also contains 110 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, and is a focal point for regional and international security issues." Provided by the Energy Information Administration of the Department of Energy, the Iraq Country Analysis Brief Web site provides a thorough description of the mineral resources available in the country as of February 2003. Visitors can read a general background of Iraq's history; its production and consumption of oil, natural gas, and electricity; and a country and economic overview. Maps and graphs help illustrate the location and availability of the resources and the overviews and links provide additional well organized information that's quite interesting to read.
