Industries in Danger – The Real Price of Energy Sources

Oil production in the regions that are most rich in oil reserves is a highly dangerous business. Foreign workers are abducted regularly, pipelines are bombed and oil fields are run over by well-armed and trained terrorist outfits. This means that it is tremendously hazardous for engineers, contractors and blue collar workers to labor in such places. Moreover, companies should count on suffering huge financial losses from time to time due to attacks on their properties. Hence, it is highly recommended for international energy companies to exercise elevated caution when investing in North Africa, the Middle East, South America or South Asia. The risks that terrorist groups pose are frequently underestimated by the security experts of such companies, and this underestimation often leads to unnecessary loss of lives, assets and money.
