Transcript the production of oil to our socialist construction, especially to the collectivisation of agriculture in which the tractor, fed on kerosene, takes the place of the ancient plow now relegated to the scrap heap of ancient history. This is a subject upon which volumes have been written both in general and special literature. Suffice it to point out the fact that during the last ten years petroleum has become essentially a political commodity. Last year the U.S.A. topped the list of oil-producing countries by its output of 143 million tons, or 64.1 per cent of the world's total output. Second place went to Venezuela, producing 22 million tons in 1930, and third place to our Union which produced 20 million tons the same year. Venezuela, owing to the general industrial depression, has curtailed her output the first half of the current year so that in March-April we overtook her and are now the second largest oil-producer in the world. We also hold second place in point of the total output of our oil industry during the whole of its existence. From 1871 to 1930 inclusive, the oilfields of our Union gave up approximately 400 million tons of oil. The oil industry of the U.S.A. during the course of approximately 70 years of its existence (from 1859 till 1930) produced a total of 2,263 million tons (5.7 times the output of our Union) of a total value of 17,217 million American dollars. It seems, however, that in the not too distant future the respective roles of the U.S.S.R. and the U.S.A. in the world's oil industry are going to be reversed. Turning to definite figures concerning the oil wealth of our Union, we must state at the outset that we possess very meagre and by no means definite information on our oil reserves. The figures now available relate chiefly to oilfields that are already being operated, and in the main are con- n
