Economic history of Saudi Arabia
The oil production in Saudi Arabia will be fully restored by the end of November, Amin H. Nasser, President and CEO of Saudi Arabian Oil Company Saudi Aramco, said. The facilities of the giant Aramco were attacked by drones earlier in September and caused a temporary shutdown and halved oil production, equivalent to 6 percent of world production.
Oil prices have risen by more than 10% in Asian trade since the oil rig attack in Saudi Arabia. Amid fears of a surge in black gold prices, US President Donald Trump has allowed the release of oil from the United States Strategic Oil Reserve.
In Asian e-commerce, US light crude oil for delivery in October rose by nearly ten percent to $ 60.23 a barrel.
