Arctic Natives may have used oil for centuries before colonizers, but at the rate Natives used oil, it would have lasted for millions of years.
"To keep warm and to cook with, the Eskimo was burning hunks of dark stuff he just picked up on the ground all around his tent. This was oil from seepage under the tundra. The Eskimos had always known about the oil, long before there was any drilling for it."
Today, after decades of oil extraction by large multinational corporations, the massive Prudhoe Bay oil field and many others oil fields that were in Native areas have had most of their oil drained.
Canada has even more oil than the United States and still hasn't figured out how to easily keep it from empowering indigenous tribes.
An interesting conspiracyish Jeffrey Epstein video at https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ldkw62WkaBU mentions DynCorp around the 16 minute point. DynCorp is a transnational security company that has a long history of lower level employees being prosecuted for sex trafficking, and high level employees not being prosecuted. DynCorp is also involved in security for the oil industry.
That video connects Epstein to Israel's spy service as well as similar groups, but an important distinction is that often corporations, spy services, etc are used by high level individual employees for their own pleasure, and spy agencies are especially prone to that.
Very similar is the supposed "Alaska corruption investigation" by an agency of the U.S. government. A group of federal agents used their access to vast government resources to have years long parties. When their game was at risk of being exposed they made use of their vast resources to concoct an elaborate investigative history.
Alaska's rapid oil development was cutting edge skulduggery in the 1970s, but those techniques developed into more sophisticated operations as the public became more savvy.
The development of 'for profit' resources in areas where Natives live has always been where cutting edge subversion of local interests, in favor of corporate and government power, occurs.
June 1967 Israel defeats various Arab armies, humiliating Nasser and other Arab leaders.
1967 to 1970 The War of Attrition involving Egypt, Jordan, the PLO and Israel.
January 23 1973 "Shah of Iran announces that the 1954 operating agreement between a consortium of oil companies and Iran will not be renewed when it expires in 1979. The consortium was formed in 1954 as a means to settle a dispute between a new ministry in Iran and the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (AIOC). The consortium included Standard Oil of New Jersey, Standard Oil of California, SOCONY-Vacuum, the Texas Company, Gulf, Royal Dutch-Shell, the Compagnie Francaise de Petroles, and the AIOC."
Late September 1973 Henry Kissinger requests an emergency high level meeting with Israeli government representatives and tells them the U.S. has absolute certainty that Arab armies will attack on October 6th.
October 1973 Despite overwhelming intelligence indicating an attack, Israel demobilized troops and relaxes its defenses. Arab armies fight another war, more successful this time, and restore Arab pride. Anwar Sadat is Egypt Prime Minister. Following the war Israeli leaders would pretend to investigate how they were 'surprised' by the attack. Within a few years rumors started that Israel had arranged for Sadat to know reliably that Israeli defenses would be relaxed.
October 1973 Arab states announce an oil embargo against the United States and other countries seen as supporting their enemy. The price of oil in the United States skyrockets and effects on the economy are clearly felt.
Early 1974 Construction begins on the Alaska Pipeline.
Late 1960s / early 1970s Bill Allen, a central figure later on in 'behind the scenes' development of the oil industry, is involved in some criminal activity that ultimately leads to a high level pardon. The specifics are partially available in hard copy newspapers but so far not available easily on the internet.
Mid 1970s Lebanon, which had been 'the Switzerland of the Middle East' at one time decays into chaos.
Early to mid 1970s through 1990s Bill Allen has a close relationship with the federal agency which arranged his pardon. The evidence suggests that Allen, along with these federal agents, were involved more in 'party activities' than in anything involving the law.
November 1977 Sadat visits Israel, followed by the Camp David Accords. Israeli leaders would pretend to be 'savages' impressed by the 'peaceful, civilized' Sadat. Although the ruse was generally successful, part of the motive for making it convincing was the fact that many Israelis died in the 1973 war. Whatever Israeli government is in power when the full details are disclosed will likely lose power, and Israeli society will go through a period of 'anti nationalist' turmoil.
September 1982 Sabra and Shatila massacre. A large number of civilians are massacred by an Israeli controlled militia. The incident is widely reported in the U.S. press and has a substantial effect on the perception of Israel in the U.S.
October 23, 1983 A massive blast kills over 200 U.S. military personnel in Lebanon.
October 24, 1983 U.S. President Ronald Reagan insists U.S. troops will remain in Lebanon.
February 7, 1984 U.S. President Ronald Reagan orders U.S. troops to begin withdrawing from Lebanon.
Mid 1980s Iran Contra. A number of 'high level' people from the governments of the U.S. and several allies are caught moving cocaine and weapons in Central America. Many of the people involved have previously operated in Iran and used "extending the Iran Iraq war" as part of the rationale for their operation, which was financially 'necessary' for U.S. oil companies as it kept oil supplies limited.
March 8, 1985 A car bomb attributed to the U.S. government detonates in Beirut killing about 80 people.
A CIA link to the bombing was uncovered quickly, but it would not be until William Casey's death that the public would learn that the director of the CIA had arranged and authorized the bombing,
"It killed worshippers, mostly women and girls, leaving Friday prayer services at an adjacent mosque, and destroyed two 7-story apartment buildings and a cinema."
1990s Bill Allen is caught various times by various agencies in activities involving underage girls he paid for sex. Each time, his federal friends get local police to drop the charges.
June 25, 1996 Khobar Towers bombing near the administrative area for Saudi oil production. A convoluted investigation eventually determines that various foreign powers are responsible.
2003 Two headless torsos wash up near a house where Bill Allen entertained "potential criminal investigation targets" with parties. The evidence suggests that some kind of federal agents were involved in these parties and were probably involved in the murders.
May 29, 2004 Khobar Massacre. Some details of the attack are disputed.
"Saudi security forces have been criticized for allowing the perpetrators to move freely from one target to another as late as five hours into the attack, to eat and sleep at the hotel and to give an interview to al-Jazeera television over the phone during their operation."
Around 2005 there were signs that corruption involving some of the people involved in investigating U.S. oil industry corruption might become public. Various agencies launched a sort of counterattack, suggesting that they in fact were the ones investigating corruption. They suggested that their investigation had been going on a long time, but they just hadn't wrapped it up yet.
2005 The Energy Policy Act of 2005 directed the Department of Energy and the Department of the Interior to begin a program of leasing federal land for commercial oil shale production. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_oil_shale_industry_in_the_United_States
October 2009 Bill Allen is sentenced to 3 years, in what looks like an attempt by law enforcement to camouflage the fact that he had been working for them. https://www.ktoo.org/2016/04/06/feds-refuse-state-request-to-prosecute-former-veco-chief-bill-allen/
August 2010 Ted Stevens dies in a plane crash.
January 2016 A new 'terrorist' group, the Niger Delta Avengers is created by the oil industry, with the support of many governments, in the Niger Delta. The U.S. is expected to be a net oil exporter soon and the United States oil industry would collapse unless the government found a way to keep oil prices high. The internet is making it more difficult for governments and the oil industry to create fictional terrorist groups in isolated areas, but it is still easy to whip up rural groups in some countries into becoming 'terrorists'.
Currently Oil production in the U.S. is skyrocketing, largely because of shale oil development. There are growing political efforts to pressure Venezuela, Nigeria, Iraq, Iran, Libya and other large oil exporters to limit production so the Oil Consortium can profit from increased production.

~When local police commit a crime there is always some chance that another police agency, usually a federal agency, will pursue justice. But when federal agents are involved in crimes like murder there is usually nobody who is capable of bringing them to justice. In that last case, involving two headless torsos discovered near a residence where a powerful Alaskan used to hold parties, there have long been rumors that a small group of federal agents was directly involved in various events, and used a so called "investigation" as cover for years long misdeeds which were covered up with numerous crimes and odd coincidences. Even federal agents on the periphery of those crimes were implicated in milder misdeeds and appear to have "cooperated" with various cover ups.
