PzKw43 -> War for Oil (7/8/2012 10:43:17 PM)

Something interesting from the book War for Oil: The Nazi Quest for an Oil Empire by Dietrich Eichholtz.

Two days before the important and well known oil meeting of July 10, 1942, chaired by Goring, Krauch’s office presented figures on Soviet oil production that “can be cited on the basis of the latest validated intelligence.” According to these statistics, Baku had produced 23 million tons (in 1941; doubtless increasable to 27 million tons), the Groznyy region four million, and the Maykop fields (in 1940) 3.4 million tons. At Maykop, however, most of the derricks had been demolished after the German invasion of 1941 and no oil was being recovered. For the new Ural-Volga oil-producing region, the authors of the memorandum projected an output of 7 million tons for 1942 and for the oil fields in the Emba region (north of the Caspian Sea) a million tons.
