Saudi Arabia's Rising Domestic Energy Consumption and Oil Supplies: Tipping the Balance?

13 September 2011 - 9:00am to 10:15am

Chatham House, London


Professor Paul Stevens, Senior Research Fellow, Energy, Environment and Development Programme, Chatham House



Saudi Arabia’s domestic oil and gas consumption has been rising dramatically over the last 10 years.  If this trend continues, it could eat into Saudi Arabia’s ability to export crude oil, which is a role that has been crucial to international oil markets for over 40 years.  This briefing will outline why Saudi energy consumption has been rising so dramatically, what the implications are and what might be done to slow the process.

Attendance is strictly by invitation only.

To enable as open a debate as possible, this event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
