    A vendor holds a bottle of gasoline to refuel a motorcycle along a street at the outskirts of Phnom Penh July 18, 2011. Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen announced last week the country is expected to produce its first oil by December 12, 2012, according to local media. Oil companies are operating off Cambodia but the country is not expected to produce its first oil until 2012. Chevron Corp is operating Cambodia Block A in the Gulf of Thailand and Total also has exploration rights in the area. Three Japanese firms -- Inpex, Marubeni Oil and Gas, which is a subsidiary of Marubeni Corp, and Mitsui Oil Exploration Co, a unit of trading house Mitsui & Co Ltd -- have also shown interest in exploring.

    This April 20, 2011 photo shows an area near the Whittier Hills preserve close to the proposed drilling site in Whittier, Calif. More than a decade after buying more than 1,200 acres of land from oil companies and turning it in a nature preserve, the cash-strapped city of Whittier is now looking into drilling on that land. The proposal has bitterly divided this Los Angeles suburb that was founded by Quakers in the late 19th century, a religion with a deep commitment to protecting the environment.

    A helicopter drops water from a water bucket on a spot fire near Slave Lake, Alberta May 17, 2011. Wildfires whipped by high winds destroyed more than a third of the sizable town in northern Alberta on Monday and forced oil companies in Canada's largest energy-producing province to shut off tens of thousands of barrels of output. About 100 wildfires are burning in Alberta, spurred by warm temperatures and gusting winds, with 23 considered out of control in a fire season unlike any seen before.
