    [SPOILER=In middle 19th century Romania became a leading oil producer in the world.]

    World's first large refinery opened at Ploești (today known as Ploiești), Romania, in 1856-1857, with US investment. After being taken over by Nazi Germany, the Ploești refineries were bombed in Operation Tidal Wave by the Allies during the Oil Campaign of World War II.
