Saudi Arabia has announced the discovery of a new oilfield in the east of the country. It has a pumping capacity of 6,000 barrels per day (bpd). The field, which was tested on April 20, pumped 6,000 barrels of extra Arabian light crude per day in addition to 4.2 million cubic feet of gas. This is the second oilfield discovered by Saudi Aramco in less than a month. On April 18, Aramco announced the discovery of Duaiban-1, which can pump 3,300 bpd of sulfur-free crude. Petroleum and Mineral Resources minister Ali Al-Naimi said the new Halfaa-1 field is located some 320 kilometres north of Dhahran and 280 kilometres southeast of Riyadh.
