Yemen oil revenues hit $381m
Wednesday, Aug 22, 2012
Sana’a: Yemen’s oil revenues rose to $381 million (Dh1.4 billion) in June this year compared with $185 million (Dh679 million) in the previous month, government announced on Tuesday.
The increase in revenues is attributed to the increase of government’s share in the total monthly amount of oil barrels which hit 3.85m barrels in June in comparison with 1.7m barrels in May.
The government has recently deployed military troops in the lawless province of Mareb to protect gas and oil pipelines from saboteurs who frequently target the pipelines to get concessions from government.
