Ask the ANALYST: Political and economic risk in the oil and gas producing Gulf States

As Saudi Arabia engaged in a market share war over oil production with Russia after the disintegration of the OPEC+ agreement, the world’s largest exporter had not foreseen the critical knock-on impact that COVID-19 was already having on the global economy.

Join AKE’s Senior Middle East and North Africa Analyst to ask about the repercussions of the dual shocks of cratering oil prices and the COVID-19 crash on oil & gas producing Gulf States.

It’s simple really; you have questions about issues impacting your operations or exposure regionally, and our specialist is on hand to answer them.

We know that as businesses respond to the ongoing impact of COVID-19, erratic regulatory and logistical changes can quickly limit options – stranding individual employees and teams far from home.

*Subject to availability and local regulations.

We have prepared these simple guidelines to support you:

  • Use only non-contact infrared forehead thermometers
  • Hold the thermometer 3-5 cm from the person’s forehead
  • Person must hold still for at least 3 seconds – movement may give a false reading
  • Person should be indoors and away from direct sunlight
  • Person should move any hair from forehead before taking temp
  • The person is positive for a fever if the temp is reading 38 c or 100.4 f
  • The metabolic rate of children and ovulating women may result in a slightly higher than normal temp.
  • Similarly, the slower metabolic rate of adults over 65 may result in a slightly lower than normal temp.
