Info

Boots and Coots prepares to attack their first oil well fire in the Rumaila Oil Field after a delay of a week due to security, sandstorms, and bureaucracy problems. They are taking a close look shielding themselves with metal roofing pieces that block the intense heat of the fire. Rumaila is one of Iraq's biggest oil fields with five billion barrels in reserve. Rumaila is also spelled Rumeilah.
