Aramco quarterly profit triples to $25.5bn


Saudi Arabia’s state-run energy giant, Saudi Aramco, posted net profits of $25.5 billion in the second quarter, the highest since the end of 2018, as the reopening of economies prompted a surge in commodity prices.

The bumper quarterly earnings are reportedly nearly 300 percent higher than they were in the same period a year ago.

“Our second-quarter results reflect a strong rebound in worldwide energy demand, and we are heading into the second half of 2021 more resilient and more flexible, as the global recovery gains momentum,” Aramco Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Amin Nasser said in a statement.

Earlier this year, the world’s biggest energy company said it had managed to raise $6 billion from its first dollar-denominated.—AN
