Nasser said that tighter global natural gas supplies helped boost oil demand by 500,000 bpd as consumer shift from gas to crude.

Aramco, the world’s largest oil exporter, also aims to expand its oil trading business to 8 million bpd over the next 5 years from its current 5.5 million bpd, he added.
