The eighth batch of the oil derivatives grant, provided by Saudi Arabia through the Saudi Development and Reconstruction Program for Yemen (SDRPY), arrived in the Yemeni governorate of Aden, reported the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) on Sunday.


The shipment was carrying 60,000 tons of diesel and 25,000 tons of mazut.


Since the announcement of the grant, 684,000 tons of oil derivatives have been sent to meet the monthly needs of power stations in Yemen.
