The United States will export more oil, natural gas and petroleum, a research firm found over the weekend.

The energy research firm Rystad Energy published the findings, carried by CNN, which revealed the Middle Eastern kingdom exports nearly seven million barrels of crude oil daily and two million barrels of natural gas and petroleum. The United States exports three million barrels of crude oil and five million barrels of natural gas and petroleum daily.

The research firm, however, said the Saudis would maintain their perch atop the rankings of the world's top exporter of crude oil.

The change, should it come to pass, would be the first time the US has topped the Saudis since the latter began selling oil to overseas customers, the report said.

US-Saudi relations were strained in October after Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was murdered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
