There must be proven supplies of oil and / or natural gas there. Otherwise the regime would not care about “protecting” it.

Indeed, since they stopped the offshore drilling years ago, the systems have pressurized and now are seeping into the bay naturally through cracks in the ocean floor. When the oil was being tapped, the natural seepage stopped. The ocean was cleaner when drilling was happening. But as you hinted, its not about the ecology, its about the money to politicians. If they can't tap it, nobody can.
