I'm waiting for someone to start raising the claim that we went there for the oil there too. Maybe once Haliburton gets the contracts.
"Undiscovered petroleum resources in the assessed region of northern Afghanistan range from 3.581 to 36.462 trillion cubic feet (TCF) of natural gas, with a mean of 15.687 TCF. Estimates of oil range from 0.391 to 3.559 billion barrels (BBO), with a mean of 1.596 BB0. Estimates for natural gas liquids range from 126 to 1,325 million barrels (MMB) with a mean of 562 MMB."
Developing these resources could be a key factor in stabilizing the country.
Currently, Afghanistan imports most of its energy resources.
