An overview of Saudi Arabia’s upstream sector

Report summary

The attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil and gas sector at Abqaiq and Khurais in September 2019 resulted in the short-term loss of 5.7 million b/d of oil production. Domestic gas production was also impacted. The Abqaiq facility processes oil from the world's largest oil field at Ghawar, plus other major fields such as Shaybah. We have updated our Saudi Arabia upstream summary slides, providing an overview of the key upstream trends in the country, including key infrastructure, production and the role of hydrocarbons in the energy sector.
