No information was provided about the companies that won the licenses.

Argaam earlier reported that Tadawul-listed Najran Cement obtained in February the first cement export license to reduce its stockpiles, which had built up to some 3 million tonnes.

Al Jouf Cement was also issued a license to export cement by the MOCI in February.

The Saudi government had earlier approved a mechanism under which cement and steel exporters would have to pay the difference in fuel costs between the local and international market.

Cement export fees are estimated between $22.67 and $35.47 per tonne, while steel export charges are estimated between $15.47 and $104 per tonne.
