Both sides engaged in secret negotiations after Stalingrad but couldn't reach a deal. The Soviets wanted all their turf back the Germans wanted a common frontier on the dneiper. Had the Germans gained the upper hand in '42 by shutting off oil to the Soviets, the latter would've been less confident (than they were in real life after stalingrad) and may well have settled for terms acceptable to the Germans.

This is question. Did the Soviets have access to oil outside of the Caucasus (not including USA?)?
