Yemen Oil Field map:

If indeed Yemen was to hide in its belly such untapped riches one can only speculate on what foreign powers would be willing to do to guarantee access

Lets think a little here, foreign powers (?) try again, terrorist insurgents, jihadists, tribal factions like the Al-Alaqi or Al-Houthi would want in on the oil action.
