Following an earlier post with updated Oklahoma, Texas, and world oil production plots, I was motivated to review and revise my Saudi Arabia production numbers. KSA (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) production began in 1936 and my plots start there, but I am unable to identify the source of my early numbers (1936-1964). Nothing sinister, my computer files are growing at about 38GB/yr and I can't find the original data source. For 1965-2009 I use the BP statistical review.
I must admit this was somewhat motivated by this recent story. I have done my own estimates and may report that sometime.
For now, let's stick to the production data. I was in KSA from 2005 through 2007 and note those years included the daily production peak (so far) and two years of decline. As soon as I left, production went up. Fascinating.
