PetroChina (PTR) reportedly has emerged as the frontrunner to take over ExxonMobil's (XOM) 60% stake in Iraq's West Qurna-1 oilfield. An XOM departure would all but wipe out the U.S. presence in Iraq's southern oilfields; Chinese companies would come to dominate Iraq with ~32% of the reserves found in service contracts awarded to foreign companies, up from 21% now.

    Greenspan said the Iraq war was about oil. What a pity if he was right.
