Abstract:Three important developments during 1959 seriously affected the Middle East's oil industry, the relations between the oil-producing countries and the Western oil companies, as well as the role of Middle East oil in the international political and economic areas: the rate of increase in production, the convening at Cairo (April 1959) of the first Arab Petroleum Conference and the emergence of Algerian Sahara, and Libya as important new centers of oil production. The full impact of these developments will be felt only in the future.
