The occupied territories on the verge of a suffocating economic crisis due to the wrong policies of the runaway “Hadi” government.
An international coalition , includes a number of international organizations ,expected an escalation of violence in the governorates under the Saudi-Emirati-American occupation due to the low volume of external support provided to the mercenaries, as well as the intensification of competition between Abu Dhabi and Riyadh with the aim of stealing oil wells in the areas of Shabwa, Hadramawt and Mahra.
Sources thinks that there is an undeclared agreement between UAE and Saudi Arabia to share oil regions, taking advantage of the Yemeni parties affiliated with them to loot.
The Capacity Assessment Project organization, in its latest report on Yemen, indicated that the Yemeni economy will enter a new round of collapse, especially after the mercenary government had used the $ 2 billion Saudi deposit, noting at the same time that Saudi Arabia has so far refused to hand over the central bank in Aden the last deposit of the payment.
After Saudi Arabia had reduced its support to the mercenary government and the rest of the parties affiliated with it, the mercenary government resorted to use the oil paper and external imports to earn millions of dollars, which is evident through the decisions issued by the so-called Economic Committee in Aden led by the mercenary, Hafith Mayad, as it issued this year Resolutions 75 and 49 ,regarding the trade of petroleum products, according to which they monopolized the import process to specific figures close to the traitor ,Hadi.
Governments of aggression against Yemen have often sought to control the southern governorates in Yemen in order to be able to acquire Yemeni oil , gas resources and other natural resources in these governorates. The UAE has ,long since, begun looting of Hadramaut and Shabwa governorates and left the looting of Mahra to Saudi Arabia. Reports show that Riyadh is looking forward to building a pipeline from Sharurah area to the coast of Al-Mahra.
The Geneva-based organization said that controlling fuel has gradually become the main engine of tensions and a tool for showing strength ,pointing out that the escalation in economic war, especially in the occupied provinces, will lead to protests, civil unrest and looting with increased insecurity and armed crime.
Economists in the oil sector in Yemen indicated that the stolen oil is sold through a vast black market and through brokers who deliver it to industrial companies that use it as a fuel to run their factories.
Oil theft has turned into a popular trade for manufacturers and businessmen who benefit from the war and find oil to operate their factories at low prices, pointing out that officials from the war parties in the so-called legitimate government exchange services and benefit from the trade of looting the crude oil, they added.
The Capacity Assessment Project organization, which was formed in December 2009 from a coalition of three of the world’s leading civil society organizations (Save the Children, the Norwegian Refugee Council, and Action Against Hunger) with the aim of assessing humanitarian needs, added that increased conflict is likely to fuel poverty as the number of People who carry arms to access aid, and armed groups seek to control resources, which applies to Marib province, where oil-looting gangs establish ground tanks near fields to store looted oil and use giant oil tankers of up to (60) tankers to transport oil during evening hours , under the protection of the so-called brigade forces (107), which protect those carriers and secure the road for them from the oil fields in the areas of mercenaries.
It is mentioned that the revenues of crude oil for the month of November from the fields of Hadramawt, Marib and Shabwa, which are controlled by the government of mercenaries, amounted to 156 million and 466 thousand dollars, while revenue from customs and tax duties of oil derivative ships in the same period amounted to 6 billion and 212 million Yemeni riyals.
Earlier reports confirm that the UAE has accelerated production from the oil field in Shabwa region after only four months of controlling over the oil resources in the region, whereas the volume of crude oil production is estimated at 17 thousand barrels and this robbery is carried out by an Austrian company called “OME” ,as it extracts oil from the Al-Okla oil field, which is the second largest oil field in Yemen.
The American company “Orbun Gas” has also worked in the Aqeela field and has built pipelines to transport oil from the region to the port of Nashimiya at length of 13 km. This company is working under the auspices of the Emirati forces to plunder Yemen’s oil and gas resources.
