Saudi Aramco Posts Record Quarterly Profit on Surging Oil Prices

DUBAI—Saudi Arabia’s national oil company said Sunday that its net income rose more than 80% to record highs in the first quarter of the year, a surge that shows how some of the world’s biggest state-owned energy producers are benefitting from a price boom accelerated by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Saudi Arabian Oil Co., known as Aramco, said its quarterly profit swelled to $39.5 billion in the quarter, a period during which Saudi Arabia, the de facto leader of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, continued to rebuff U.S. requests to pump more oil to help tame surging crude prices, instead sticking by an agreement with Russia to only marginally increase output.
