Everlasting flames in Naft Sefid (photos)

Naft Sefid is a city located 36 kilometers from Hafcal and 55 kilometers from Ahwaz in Khuzestan Province, where a huge oil field was discovered in 1938. The people of Naft Sefid are from the Bakhtiari tribe. In the past, they also called the city Iran's Paris, due to the presence of foreign advisors who had been staying there since the discovery of oil. The reason for naming the city Naft Sefid [white oil] is the existence of colorless high quality oil that can be used as petrol without any refinement.
