About the Book

In 1963, he began work as a civil engineer working on the California State Water Project, and he went on to develop large energy projects throughout the world—capping his career working with Bechtel on the Big Dig in Boston.


Energy Reality reveals how energy, politics, and power are intertwined. Highlights include


power struggles between United States of America and Russia/the Soviet Union to be the world’s largest producer of petroleum, which began after the Rothschilds took a shortcut through the Suez Canal, secretly opening the Asian market to kerosene;

John Watson Foster, his son-in-law, Robert Lansing, and “Uncle Bert’s” two nephews, John Foster and Allen Dulles, who made certain that Sullivan & Cromwell clients retained control of Middle East oil; and

Germany and Japan and how they were excluded from sharing oil wealth from the Middle East.


The author also examines five postwar oil crises, including the taking of American hostages in Iran by the Khomeini regime in 1979, and how Vladimir Putin is seeking to turn Russia into a powerful petro state.

About the Author

Peter Cabana worked for Bechtel on multibillion dollar energy projects at coal, oil, and nuclear power plants throughout the world; a natural gas field and the LNG facility in Ache Province, Indonesia; and a seawater treatment plant fabricated in Korea. He knows the difference between energy fact and fiction and provides insights into how the worlds of energy, politics, and power have intertwined since oil was discovered at Titusville, Pennsylvania, in 1859.
