    For those intrested in this topic there is a great book written by Anthony Sampson called:

    The Seven Sisters: The great oil companies & the world they shaped

    Published back in the 70’s its a great introductory to this topic.

    Behind oil there was petrodollars. Behind petrodollars there are US Treasury securities. Behind UST there is gold, yellow gold — at least obviously: gold price control.
