    • Thanks for the tip. I’ll definitely pass it along to James (Pilato).

  1. Is ISIS oil business yet another myth? I’m arguing it is. Here are two articles describing how they do their oil business.

    Financial times: Isis Inc: how oil fuels the jihadi terrorists
    Look at picture at the end of article

    The Most Important Question About ISIS That Nobody Is Asking

    In first article they are stating that ISIS gets $25-40 per barrel and driver/middleman gets up to $100. The second article says ISIS gets $40 and free market price is $93.

    Actually the price for oil on free market is $40-60 for almost a year.

    Things are simply not adding up. I think the law of free market is that you can’t get full price (or even more) for goods with defect (stolen goods, quality, etc.). Customer expects lower price because of possible inconvenience.
    When oil is extracted it must first pass through basic processing to remove impurities (sand, water..), so there can also be a problem with quality of ISIS oil since they operate in war conditions. Also, oil from different oil fields is not the same (sweet, sour oil). But refinery needs a batch of oil of the same quality to process without problems. The size of batch is considerably bigger then one truck. And the last, transportation costs.
    When taking into account everything I’ve just said, numbers proposed in the articles simply make no sense.
    I’m not saying that they are not doing this business. But they can’t get $1,5 million/day out of it. This is just a fairy tale to distract attention of people from real financiers of ISIS.
