Saudi Arabia is a major player in the global crude oil market! The Kingdom is the world’s second largest producer and exporter. The Kingdom is the largest producer of petroleum products and gasoline 🌏 ️ 🇸🇦 !
Oil production in Nigeria has been a major source of economic development over the years as it is both the world’s leading producer and exporter of crude oil!
The type of oil produced by Saudi Arabia is largely comprised of light crude/condensates 🇳🇬 🌐 ️ 🇸🇦. As is the case with most oil-producing countries the majority of the crude is exported to foreign buyers . It is also used to produce various forms of refined products, for example fuel oil, gasoline, and diesel .
The light crude/condensate extracted from various oilfields in the country is generally of a higher quality than the heavier crude oils that are typically found in the Middle East region ️. The light crude/condensate tends to have a lower sulfur content which makes it more desirable for refineries in the United States Europe and other parts of the world 🌍 ️.
Aside from that to light crude/condensate Saudi Arabia also produces other kinds of oil covering heavy crude and natural gas liquids (NGLs) 🇸🇦. A heavy crude oil is defined as an oil that has an API gravity of less than 20 degrees and a viscosity of higher than 50 centipoise ️. This type of oil is typically more difficult to refine and is therefore generally used as a blending component for lighter products.
Saudi Arabia produces both light and heavy condensate when it comes to natural gas liquids (NGLs) 🇸🇦. Light NGLs can be used for petrochemical feedstock or for making gasolinelike fuels . Heavier NGLs can be used in jet fuel heating oil and diesel fuels .
Apart from light, heavy, and NGLs, Saudi Arabia also produces what is known as “specialty” oil 🇸🇦. These specialty oils are used for lubricants waxes and asphalts .
The type of oil produced by Saudi Arabia is largely dependent on the type of well being drilled also the geology of the oilfield in question ❓ 🔛 🇸🇦. Saudi Arabia is known to possess plethora of diverse sorts of oil ranging from light to heavy and from light to NGLs.
Although Saudi Arabia produces and exports a plethora of different sorts of oil light crude/condensate is typically the most important type of oil for the country because it is relatively simple to refine and therefore attractive to buyers in the U. S . Europe and other parts of the world 🌎.
On top of that to the diverse kinds of oil produced by Saudi Arabia it is also important to keep in mind that the country also produces other petroleum-based products as natural gas petroleum coke fuel oil, and petroleum-based solvents and lubricants 🔝 🇸🇦.
Overall Saudi Arabia is a major player in the global oil market and produces plethora of different sorts of crude oil containing light heavy, and NGLs, plethora specialty oil ️ 🇸🇦. The country is also a leading exporter of petroleum and petroleum-based products in the world. … .
