Reader comment on item: Might the Saudis Blow Up Their Oil Infrastructure?

Submitted by Stan Suchocki (United States), May 13, 2005 at 00:12

The Saudis do very little of the work on their oil fields. The vast majority of the work is performed by service companies, such as Schlumberger, Hallibuton, Baker Hughes, etc, etc ad nauseum, even the Chinese are in on the "game", that is providing the manpower (easy), the equipment (not so easy) and the technology ( very difficult) to make these hydrocarbons profitable.
