Attack on Saudi Oil and Market Implications

September 17, 2019 | Ben Mohr, CFA, Director of Fixed Income

Over the weekend, half of Saudi Arabia’s oil production stopped due to a drone attack on the country’s major Saudi Aramco oil infrastructure which includes processing centers and oil fields. While a Yemeni militant group — the Houthi rebels — claimed responsibility for the attack, U.S. intelligence suspects Iran as the culprit.

This newsletter details the immediate developments and market implications of the attack, including a look at oil pricing and current supply, expectations for recovery, and potential effects on demand and geopolitical uncertainties.
