Sixth Tranche of the Saudi Oil Derivatives Grant Arrives in Aden

The sixth tranche of the Saudi Oil Derivative Grant has arrived at Al-Zait port in Aden Governorate. The tranche, provided by Saudi Arabia and supplied through the Saudi Development and Reconstruction Program for Yemen (SDRPY), included 60,000 metric tons of diesel and 30,000 metric tons of mazut. The total amount of oil derivatives that have been supplied since the beginning of the grant has reached 506,000 metric tons, and that is to meet the monthly needs submitted by power plants in the Yemeni governorates. The oil derivatives grant is an extension of Saudi Arabia’s ongoing support to Yemen across all sectors. The 2021 grant provides an amount of more than 1,260,850 metric tons of fuel at an amount of $422 million, which is an extension of the previous Saudi oil derivatives grants amounting to more than $4.2 billion. In a statement, the Yemeni Minister of Electricity Dr. Anwar Kalashat said the Saudi Oil Derivatives Grant has a significant impact on the economic level as well as the provision of energy services in various regions. Dr. Kalashat cited the great suffering experienced by residents in Yemen before the grant due to the shortage of fuel supplies, which was the culprit behind the recurring and prolonged power outages that lasted for days. In some governorates, Dr. Kalashat noted, the power outage would continue for up to seven days. However, after the arrival of the grant, the level of electrical energy production became stable across various governorates for seven months. In addition, Dr. Kalashat said that residents could sense the outcomes of the grant and the improved electrical energy production. Now that energy generation is almost stable, electricity has significantly improved in several governorates and continues for 24 hours in other governorates. Highlighting the impact of the grant, Dr. Kalashat added that the grant has a significant impact at the economic level, as the Yemeni government has reallocated the funds initially assigned to purchasing fuel to improve the standard of living for residents in Yemen while developing solutions to problems in the energy sector. Praising the Kingdom’s support for the Yemeni energy sector, the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Electricity and Energy, Mr. Abdul Hakim Fadel, remarked that the grant had a great impact on people’s lives and saved the Yemeni government millions of dollars, which would have been spent on purchasing fuel for power plants. The grant, he added, also assisted the Yemeni government in directing its expenditures to support civil employees’ salaries as well as to enhance the provision of basic services. On his part, the First Undersecretary of Aden, Mr. Mohammed Nasr Al-Shathily, expressed his gratitude and extended the appreciation of Aden’s Governor, Ahmed Hamed Lamas, to all who have contributed to the delivery of the sixth tranche. The sixth tranche is an extension of the previously delivered tranches that have provided stability in energy generation, Al-Shathily remarked, adding that the Saudi derivative grant has alleviated the sufferings of Aden’s residents. Praising the Kingdom’s support provided through the SDRPY for the various sectors and the Yemeni electricity sector, in particular, Al-Shathily reiterated his thanks to the leadership and people of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Meanwhile, the Director of the SDRPY office in Aden, Mr. Ahmed Madkhali, reiterated that SDRPY’s Oil Derivatives Grant is a continuation of the Kingdom’s support to Yemen, a reflection of the strong ties between the two countries. The oil derivatives grant has significantly helped solve the problem of frequent power outages, which contributed to social stability and enhanced the provision of basic services across vital sectors. The grant, he added, has also contributed to stabilizing oil prices, positively impacting the economic, health, educational and service fields, and improving the infrastructure. A supervisory committee supervises and monitors the disbursement of the grant to the respective governorates and based on the needs submitted from the power plants in the Yemeni governorates in advance to the committee. Along with SDRPY, the committee is composed of several Yemeni agencies and parties, including the Ministry of Electricity and Energy, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation, in addition to the General Electricity Corporation and Aden Refineries Company. The committee is tasked with implementing the agreed procedures and governance to ensure that the grant reaches every beneficiary. The quantities of oil derivatives delivered to date – 333,000 metric tons of diesel and 173,000 metric tons of mazut – contributed to the operation of more than 65 power plants distributed over the Yemeni governorates, which led to generating more than 1533 gigawatts-hours of energy. Compared to energy production, transmission, and use in 2020, an overall improvement was observed in 2021 and with the implementation of the grant. Specifically, energy production increased by 17%, power transmission increased by 12%, energy sales increased by 13%, and the average operating hours increased to over 20 hours across several governorates. The Saudi Oil Derivatives Grant is part of SDRPY’s many ongoing projects and initiatives. To support the Yemeni people, the program has provided more than 204 development projects and initiatives across various Yemeni governorates and in seven key sectors, including education, health, water, transportation, agriculture and fisheries, and capacity-building of government institutions, in addition to other development programs.
