It depends specifically on the country. Iran nationalized its oil fields in 1953 and then again in 1979 (since they had returned to the British in 1954). Egypt nationalized its oil fields in the 1960s. Saudi Arabia has nationalized some oil fields and created profit-sharing agreements on others from the 1970s onwards.
