The war in Iraq commenced on March 20, 2003. In keeping with his past actions in Kuwait during the Gulf War in 1991, Saddam Hussein sabotaged a number of the Iraqi oil wells in the south Rumalia oil fields. Boots & Coots (B&C) entered into a contract to assist the military in controlling these wells at an unprecedented point in time, while the war was in full swing. Subsequently, B&C aided in extinguishing four wells which were on fire, and in safely controlling an additional five wells in the first 45 days of the war.
