Oil is one the most precious resources in the world!! Saudi Arabia is a major player in the global oil industry. Saudi Arabia is the world’s largest oil exporter and has been producing oil since the 1930s. Oil plays an important part in Saudi Arabia’s economy and is a major source of income ️ 🇸🇦 🌐 1️⃣ !!
As of 2020 Saudi Arabia boasts the second largest proven oil reserves worldwide at 266 billion barrels 🇸🇦. This vast quantity makes them a key global supplier of crude oil; they currently produce about 10. 5 millions barrels daily and this figure is anticipated to increase as the country invests more heavily into exploration and production activities .
However while Saudi Arabia is currently one of the main suppliers of oil it is important to recognize that the country’s oil reserves are finite 🇸🇦 1️⃣. In fact while the proven oil reserves in Saudi Arabia are still very large they are only estimated to last for another 58 years at the current rate of production 🇸🇦. This means that Saudi Arabia will need to invest in new sources of oil or look for other sources of energy to replace oil in the long term 🇸🇦 🆕.
Furthermore, the amount of oil that is left in Saudi Arabia will depend on how efficiently the country uses its oil resources 🇸🇦 🔛. Saudi Arabia has been able to maintain its production levels by drilling deeper and more efficiently but this is a difficult and costly process ️ 🇸🇦. As such, it is likely that over the next few decades, the amount of oil left in Saudi Arabia will begin to diminish 🇸🇦.
Saudi Arabia is currently the world’s leading oil exporter yet its resources are finite. Therefore, the country must invest in alternative energy sources and utilize resources more efficiently to guarantee enough oil for future needs . As of 2020, Saudi Arabia still had 266 billion barrels of proven reserves but this amount is anticipated to decrease over time 🇸🇦. !! .
