Barrels left near a Forward Command Post, a disaster waiting to happen

Barrels were standard storage devices for excavated oil, and were used to transport and temporarily store crude oil before transporting it to a refinery. Due to issues with storage, they were often scattered around the base, and due to the oil's flammability, posed an extreme danger if and when detonated. In Tiberium Wars, barrels are placed in certain spots (usually with vehicles next to them) as the mission starts you with infantry that are ineffective against vehicles.
