Saudi oil exports value plunges $11bn in Q1
The value of Saudi Arabia's oil exports plunged by 21.9 percent year on year in the first quarter to $40 billion, corresponding to a decline of about $11 billion, Reuters reported quoting official data on Sunday.
Brent crude prices fell more than 60 percent in the quarter hurt by the coronavirus pandemic and an oil price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia following the collapse in March of talks on further production cuts.
The decline in oil exports was the main reason behind a 20.7 percent decline in the value of overall merchandise exports in the first quarter, the General Authority for Statistics said on Sunday.
Non-oil exports, including chemicals and plastics, fell by 16.5 per cent, it said.
China was the main destination for Saudi exports in Q1, followed by Japan and India. China was also the main origin for Saudi imports.
Saudi Arabia posted a $9 billion budget deficit in the quarter as oil revenue fell by 24 percent to $34 billion.
