Tadawul-listed oil and gas giant Saudi Arabian Oil Company (Saudi Aramco) has discovered two oil and gas fields – the Hadabat Al-Hajrah gas field located east of Sakaka in the Al-Jouf region, and the nearby Abraq Al-Talul oil and gas field in the northern part of the kingdom – according to the Saudi Minister of Energy, HRH Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman bin Abdulaziz.

Gas has begun to flow from the Al-Sarara reservoir in the Hadabat Al-Hajrah gas field at a rate of 16 million standard cubic feet per day, accompanied by approximately 1,944 barrels of condensates.

Meanwhile, the Al-Sharurah reservoir in the Abraq Al-Talul field, located southeast of the northern border city of Ar’ar, has begun producing 3,189 barrels of light Arabian crude oil; as well as approximately 1.1 million standard cubic feet of gas per day.

In addition, the Al Qawara reservoir in the Abraq Al-Talul field has witnessed gas flowing at 2.4 million cubic feet per day, in addition to 49 barrels of condensate per day.

Saudi Aramco will continue to work on assessing the quantities of oil, gas, and condensate in the two fields, in addition to digging more wells to determine the area and size of the two fields, the Saudi Minister of Energy confirmed in a statement to the state-run Saudi Press Agency.

The governor of the Al-Jouf region, HRH Prince Faisal bin Nawwaf bin Abdulaziz, congratulated the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud; and the Crown Prince, Deputy Prime Minister, and Minister of Defence, HRH Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, on the occasion of the discoveries.
