Abstract

Fuel prices in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have historically been below international market values. This has stimulated rapid growth in primary energy demand. The Kingdom’s natural gas demand has now outstripped its domestic production, forcing the government to impose rations on consuming sectors, and raising expectations that natural gas production and prices in Saudi Arabia will increase over the next decade.
