Arrival of the fourth shipment of Saudi oil derivatives grants in Aden, Yemen
Riyadh – According to the Saudi Press Agency, the fourth shipment of Saudi Arabia’s oil derivatives grant, which includes 100,000 tonnes of mazut and 150,000 tonnes of diesel, has landed in Aden.
The project is in response to a request from the Yemeni government for assistance in providing oil derivatives to run more than 70 power generation facilities throughout the nation. It is a part of the Kingdom’s ongoing efforts to support the Yemeni people.
King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman issued the order to award this donation.
This extension of prior payments totaling $4.2 billion is part of the Kingdom’s commitment to fostering security, stability, and development for the Yemeni people.
The Saudi Program for the Development and Reconstruction of Yemen (SDRPY) includes the Saudi Oil Derivatives Grant. The SDRPY has implemented 229 development projects and initiatives throughout Yemeni governorates to benefit Yemenis in seven key areas, including education, health, water, energy, transport, agriculture, and fisheries, as well as strengthening the capacity of governmental institutions and other development programmes.
