Saudi Arabia Replaces Veteran Oil Minister

Saudi Arabia dismissed its long-serving oil minister, Ali al-Naimi, as the country grapples with weak oil prices, The Wall Street Journal reports.

"They need a ministry that can take a more holistic approach to energy," said Jim Krane, Wallace S. Wilson Fellow for Energy Studies. “They’re working to rationalize their energy policy.”
