2021-07-19 | Since 7 Day

Riyadh (Debriefer) - The Saudi grant's third shipment of oil will arrive in Aden during Eid Adhaha holydays, information minister in the Yemeni official government said Saturday.
Last March, Saudi Arabia announced a US$422-million-worth oil grant to Yemen containing 351,304 tons of gasoil and 909,591 tons of diesel to operate more than 80 power plants in government-held provinces.
The shipment of 75,000 tons of diesel is expected to arrive at the southern port city on 23 or 24 July, Moammar al-Eryani added in news release carried by the Riyadh-based Saba News Agency.
The Saudi grant helped the government to direct its expenditures and provide services improving the people's livings, he said.
The grant's third shipment will have positive impact in generating the electric power in different governorates and contributing to improvement of public services offered to Yemenis, according to Eryani.
"In May and June, the Saudi oil grant increased electric grid-generated energy by 23% in all governorates and by 40% in Aden, and created a stability in fuel supply," the Yemeni minister said.
