State oil giant Saudi Aramco’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Amin Nasser said on Sunday, oil demand recovery is picking up pace in Asia as economies gradually open up after the easing of coronavirus lockdowns.
“Look at China, their gasoline and diesel demand is almost at pre-COVID 19 levels. We are seeing that Asia is picking up and other markets (too).”
“As countries ease the lockdown, we expect the demand to increase.”
His comments come after the company reported a 73.4% fall in second-quarter net profit.
