Rising Tensions between Iran and Saudi Arabia: Geopolitical and Energy Security Implications

The latest increase in tensions between Iran and Saudi Arabia raises questions about the potential for further instability in the region and possible oil supply disruptions. These risks are most apparent in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province, home both to more than half of the nation’s oil production and a Shia majority.
