  • Enter ISIS: Why the Iraqi crisis is a growing threat to both global security and energy

    Enter ISIS: Why the Iraqi crisis is a growing threat to both global security and energy

    Nine months after ISIS declared independence, The Islamic State (IS) as it is now known, established itself as a caliphate under the rule of military commander Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, with its capital at the Abbasid city of Ar-Raqqah.

At about 4% of global supply, the news that Iraq’s oil-rich second city, Mosul, was seized by ISIS militants three weeks ago, sent the price of Brent crude to a three-year high of $113.
