That ETIs would be interested in our sources and applications of energy follows logically from their interest in our strategic technology, but it is difficult to establish any clear correlation. My private studies convince me that an interest has been displayed in atomic energy facilities and petroleum-related activities. Map plotting shows a significant concentration of sightings in New Mexico, counter to population trends. New Mexico is extraordinarily high in both strategic facilities and mineral production. 

Another State with a significant number of close-range UFO sightings in comparison to its population (see Table 7) is Missouri. A separate study by Ted Phillips of 2,108 CE II physical trace cases shows that Missouri ranks third in number of such reports while ranking 13th in population. Missouri contains major aerospace activities, a leading weapons production facility, and is a significant producer of strategic metals and minerals. For the most part, as Table 7 illustrates, sighting frequency tends to reflect population. 

Vehicle encounter cases, taken as a whole, could be interpreted as showing an interest in our uses of energy, what makes our vehicles tick. So can the numerous cases of aircraft and rocket pacings. 

A possible progression of interest with time is intriguing, but remains only an intuition. During the 1940s and 1950s UFOs were particularly observed around aircraft and rockets. During the 1960s automobile encounter cases came to the fore. Also during the 1960s, when our space program reached the stage of lunar rockets and deep space probes, major waves of UFO sightings occurred after a lull of 7 years. Then, in the 1970s, the "petroleum connection" began to emerge. 

It was almost as if the ETIs gradually figured out the motive power of our vehicles, monitoring the sites of advanced propulsion technology (White Sands, Cape Canaveral), checking our energy resources, and tracing our peculiar dependence on fossil fuels to the U.S. oil fields of the West and Southwest (e.g., Levelland and Damon, Texas sightings), and to the Arab nations of the Middle East. Whether a similar pattern has evolved in other countries is unknown. 

At any rate, the 1973 UFO wave coincided with the OPEC embargo and the beginning of the U.S. petroleum supply crisis, and the 1978 Eastern Hemisphere wave (largely unreported in the U.S.) was focused in the oil-rich Arab nations. Was this only coincidence? 

A series of UFO sightings occurred in Kuwait starting on November 9, 1978. As reported by P. G. Jacob, a marine biologist employed by the Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research, "All the sightings occurred in the oil fields of Kuwait Oil Company, the major oil producing concern in Kuwait:" The final sighting was November 21 over the Al Sabriyah oil field near the Iraqi border, and the UFO was photographed as it flew over a 20-foot water tower and hovered in the area for 30 minutes. 

At one point Kuwait Oil Company technicians observed the landing and take-off of a soundless domed UFO which had a flashing red body light. Telecommunications were interrupted during the sighting, and an electrically operated oil pumping station near the landing site ceased to function. Similar E-M effects were noted during the other sightings. 

From November 1978 through January 1979, UFOs were seen and photographed from several Arab nations over a wide area near the Persian Gulf coast opposite Iran. During the same time frame there were widespread sightings in Australia and New Zealand, including the famous New Zealand movie films taken from an aircraft in December. The movies received international news media attention, but the Arab oil field sightings and landing did not, at least not in the United States. 

Early in 1979 a UFO landing also was reported at a major Argentine oil field. On May 1, engineers of the YPF government oil fields at Vizcacheras, in a remote area accessible only to company employees, were awakened at 4:00 a.m. from the noise made by goats in a corral. When they went outside to investigate, they saw a UPO hovering silently about 70 meters from the encampment and 20 meters above the ground. They waved a lantern and the UFO seemed to respond by blinking a light, then slowly landed nearby. More light signals were exchanged, then the UFO took off and disappeared toward the Andes mountains at 4:35 a.m. 

The group went to inspect the landing spot and found a large circle in which the sand had been petrified or hardened into chunks. Soil samples were taken to a Professor Corradi for analysis. Corradi, identified as Director of the Institute for Extrahuman Studies, said the samples were being analyzed by the Office of Mining. He noted that after the sighting, the goats (about 1,500) refused to return to their corral. 

Corradi also noted a strategic connection that other South American investigators have commented upon in the past: 

"I have been noticing for some time that the permanent presence of the UFOs over the uranium mines of La Pintada and Cuesta de los Terneros in San Rafael and now in Vizcacheras, is not a coincidence."

Earlier, on March 10, 1977, crew members of two oil tankers anchored a mile apart in the offshore Anuna oil field of Indonesia at 7:40 p.m. saw a large dark object with a red body light, and emitting yellowish-white beams of light. The UFO approached from the west beneath a 1,000 foot cloud cover, circled the oil field twice, and flew away to the east. 

The "petroleum connection" may or may not be significant. The possibility exists that the ETIs have been conducting a broad survey of human technology that, among other things, has touched on petroleum as well as other energy- related factors. The survey might be of such broad scope, so comprehensive, that no particular pattern would emerge from our large scale data analysis and UFO sightings would correlate with almost everything under the sun. But if the skeptical assumption is made, no science is done and we are left only with speculation. The effort to seek out such patterns in the data seems well worthwhile. 

Meanwhile, the attempt to analyze extraterrestrial psychology remains a speculative art that necessarily involves critical assumptions at various points. The scenario presented here amounts to an educated guess and a survey of reasonable possibilities. We are not likely to have any final answers until the full resources of science are applied to the problem ... or the ETIs reveal their purposes.
