Operations at Iraq Petroleum Company (IPC) facility after World War II
Iraq Date:1945 Duration:1 min 13 sec Sound:NO SOUND
Brief glimpse of British visitors walking toward a ship, after a postwar visit to an IPC facility in Iraq. Scene shifts to an oil derrick and drilling rig rising above oil storage tanks at a sandy site. Camera pans up the derrick. Change of scene shows gathering of British people with IPC officials at some kind of event. Next, a group of officials is seen briefly, outside a facility warehouse. Two men greet each other. A military officer stands nearby. Camera then jumps to inside the oil rig, shown earlier where Iraqi "roughnecks" wrestle pipe, insert a new section, and continue drilling. View of worker walking among oil tanks at the facility. Views of natural gas compressors; large transmission pipes; and a worker closing one, in a set of valves at the site. Broad view from the derrick, showing supplies and equipment laid out in the sand and a vista of miles, with distant structures including (possibly) worker housing and support facilities.
