A Hadrami petroleum engineer revealed that an international deal had been concluded to raise the governorate’s oil production to its peak.
This comes in the wake of the visit of US ambassador to Yemen, Stephen Fagin, to the oil province, eastern Yemen.
The expert, Muhammad Saeed Bahdad, said that the deal was concluded in one of the foreign countries without the knowledge of public opinion. He pointed out that the deal was made in billions of dollars and included raising the peak production of crude oil to feed the international market in the face of the repercussions of Russian oil embargo.
Bahhadad called for the necessity of obligating Maeen government to supply oil and gas revenues to the Central Bank in Aden.
The US ambassador visited Hadhramaut last week, as part of an international movement in the oil regions of Yemen, which also includes selling the assets of foreign companies in favor of regional ones.
The disclosure of the deal came at a time when Maeen government announced a new dose of oil derivatives prices in Hadhramout
as the price of gasoline for a 20-liter canister amounted to more than 23 thousand riyals, while the price of diesel reached 28 thousand and 400 riyals.
