How Much Money Does UAE Make From Oil?

Posted by Osei Agyemang

United Arab Emirates is internationally known as one of the biggest oil nations in the world. The country gloats of gigantic income from the petrol based fluid. Abu Dhabi is the biggest emirate in the UAE and holds more than 90% of the country’s oil reserves.

The country is described as “centrally-planned free-market capitalism.” Oil production, which once accounted for 50 percent of Dubai’s gross domestic product, contributes less than 1 percent to GDP today.

The country currently generates more revenue from the production of oil. At a normal oil cost of $14.50 a barrel in ostensible terms, the UAE has procured almost $308 billion from crude exports between 1962 and last year (2020).

The incomes are four times more than the country’s GDP of around $71 billion last year and almost 43% of the complete Arab GDP.
