KSA: Seven New Oil and Gas Deposits: A Potential Boost for Vision 2030 and Economic Growth

Saudi Arabia Discovers Seven New Oil and Gas Deposits: A Potential Boost for Vision 2030 and Economic Growth

Saudi Arabia has discovered seven new oil and gas deposits in the Eastern Province and Empty Quarter. This significant find is poised to advance the nation’s Vision 2030 objectives, stimulate economic growth, and secure its energy future. According to the official Saudi news agency SPA, state oil giant Saudi Aramco identified two

unconventional oil fields, a reservoir of light Arabian oil, two natural gas fields, and two natural gas reservoirs.


This substantial find underscores Saudi Arabia’s commitment to maintaining its leading global energy provider position. The new deposits will significantly bolster the Kingdom’s oil and gas production capabilities, ensuring a steady supply to meet domestic and international demands.



The discovery of these new reserves is pivotal for Saudi Arabia as it pursues its Vision 2030 agenda. Vision 2030 aims to diversify the economy, reduce dependence on oil revenue, and foster sectors such as tourism, entertainment, and technology. With these additional resources, Saudi Arabia can generate increased revenue from oil and gas exports, providing critical funding for Vision 2030 projects.


Moreover, the economic impact of these discoveries must be balanced. Saudi Arabia’s GDP heavily relies on its oil and gas sector, which accounted for about 42% of the GDP in 2022. The newfound reserves will likely attract foreign investment, create job opportunities, and stimulate various sectors of the economy. Analysts predict these discoveries could boost the national economy by billions of dollars annually, further stabilizing the country’s fiscal landscape.
