    Background: Although Tunisia is not a big producer of crude oil, the fifty wells of d'El Borma in the Sahara produce 4 million cubic metres a year.

    This is worth one twenty-fourth of the entire Tunisian budget.

    Eighty per cent of the crude oil is refined in Italy, but a refinery at Bizerte handles the rest. The refinery produces fuel oil, petrol and kerosene... 90 per cent of all Tunisia's requirements.
