Saudi Arabia will develop nuclear energy in the country

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Saudi Arabia is carefully approaching the idea of ​​developing a nuclear industry in the kingdom, including uranium enrichment, said Energy Minister Abdel Aziz bin Salman Al Saud.

“Our approach to nuclear power is to experiment with two nuclear reactors,” he said at the World Energy Congress.

“We will do this work carefully. Even if we decide on it, we will proceed from the principle of the full cycle – from uranium production to enrichment, fission of uranium, even purchase of technology,” he added.

As they wrote ” News . Economy”, Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman Al Saud was appointed the new head of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources of Saudi Arabia. Moreover, for the first time in the history of the country, such a post will be taken by a member of the royal family. The

Prince, who, incidentally, is the elder half-brother of the heir to the throne, Mohammed bin Salman, must replace the previous leader of the Saudi Ministry of Energy Khaled al-Falih, one of the main architects of the OPEC + deal, who lost one more post last week – chairman of the board of directors of the largest in the world on the production and export of Saudi Aramco oil company.

According to Bloomberg, the reason for such castling in the energy sector of the kingdom was the unsatisfactory price for “black gold” for Saudi Arabia, as well as the low rate of preparation of Saudi Aramco for access to the exchange.
