Welcome to the OpenOil Wiki Family - the first open source reference for extractive industries.

Learn about the beginnings of the Iranian oil sector in the early 1900s or the boom in the Ghanaian oil industry since 2007. Learn about resource transparency issues and the resource curse, and Arabic speakers can check out the local-language version of the Iraq wiki.

This is a living document that will continue to expand as new articles are added. If you want to make a guide to the extractive industry in your country, see our three-question, two-minute questionnaire or contact us at wikiguides(at)

This wiki was created by OpenOil, an energy research and policy consultancy based in Berlin. Visit our website to learn more about us, including:
