State-owned oil company Saudi Aramco has discovered two new oil and gas fields in the northern regions, the Kingdom’s energy minister said on Sunday, the state-run news agency SPA reported.
Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman Al-Saud said the new Abraq al-Toloul oil field, which is southeast of the northern city of Arar, is flowing at a daily rate of 3,189 barrels per day (bpd) of Arabic light oil, along with 3.5 Million cubic feet of natural gas.
The Hadabat al Hajara gas field in the al-Jof region has a daily production rate of 16 million cubic feet of natural gas and 1944 bpd of oil condensate, according to the minister.
Aramco will continue its efforts to estimate the total amount of oil and gas in the two fields and continue to drill holes to determine their areas and capacities, he added.
