Early on Saturday morning, attacks on Saudi Aramco’s giant oil plant caused major fires, disrupting about half of the kingdom’s crude production.

From a record spike in oil prices to an escalation of tensions in the region after the US blamed Iran for being behind the strikes. The fallout has many in the region and around the world on tenterhooks for what it could mean for global energy markets and Middle East stability.

Host Mustafa Alrawi, assistant editor in chief, and Kelsey Warner, assistant business editor, welcome The National's energy correspondent Jennifer Gnana and foreign editor James Haines-Young for an in-depth discussion on the local and global ramifications of the attacks.
