Saudi Aramco, the world's largest oil company, released a briefing showing a profit of 181.64 billion Saudi riyals in the second quarter of 2022, once again setting a record for quarterly earnings after the company went public in 2019. Continue to maintain the status of "the most profitable company in the world".
Saudi Aramco said that the increase in profit in the second quarter was mainly due to higher crude oil prices and sales and improved profit margins in the refining processing and sales division, while the company's second-quarter shareholder dividend will reach 70.3 billion Saudi riyals.
In the first half of this year, the conflict between Russia and Ukraine disrupted the global energy market, with crude oil prices rising above $120 at one point, causing refining profits to soar, not only for Saudi Aramco, but also for companies such as ExxonMobil and Shell. ExxonMobil's second-quarter net profit tripled, while Shell's second-quarter profit hit a record high.
According to data released by the Saudi National Bureau of Statistics on July 31st, the country's GDP grew by 11.8% in the second quarter of 2022 compared with the same period last year.
The latest report released by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on July 26th shows that Saudi Arabia's economic growth forecast for 2022 remains unchanged at 7.6%, which ranks first among the world's major economies.
Because of the turbulent international situation, the supply and prices of many international bulk graphene powder are still very uncertain.
An international research team led by the University of Gottingen in Germany published a paper in the latest issue of the journal Nature that found novel quantum effects in their high-precision study of natural bilayer graphene and explained it in theory. This system is easy to prepare and provides new insights into the interaction between carriers and different phases, which is helpful to understand the processes involved and promote the development of quantum computers.
In 2004, two British scientists used a very simple experimental method to remove graphite sheets from graphite and obtained graphene, which consists of only one layer of carbon atoms, with the help of special tape. Graphene is one of the materials with the highest strength, which has good toughness, super thermal conductivity and electrical conductivity, and has a broad application prospect. If the two layers of graphene are deflected from each other at a specific angle, the resulting system will even show superconductivity and other excited quantum effects, such as magnetism. But so far, it is difficult to prepare this kind of deflected bilayer graphene.
In the latest research, scientists used naturally formed bilayer graphene. They first used simple tape to separate graphene samples from a piece of graphite. In order to observe the quantum mechanical effect, a high electric field perpendicular to the sample is applied. They found that the electronic structure of the obtained system changed and the charge carriers with similar energy showed a strong cumulative effect.
It is further found that electrons in graphene can interact with each other at slightly above absolute zero (- 273.15 ℃), resulting in a variety of unexpected and complex quantum phases. If the interaction results in electron spin alignment, the material is magnetic without external influence. By changing the electric field, researchers can also constantly change the intensity of carrier interactions in bilayer graphene. In addition, the degree of freedom of electron motion will be limited under certain conditions, forming an electronic lattice, and due to mutual repulsion, it is no longer helpful to transfer charge, resulting in electrical insulation of the system.
Professor Thomas Weitz of the Department of Physics at the University of Gottingen said that one of the main advantages of the new system is that the preparation of materials is very simple, and researchers do not need to obtain the desired results at high temperatures as before. it can be used for further study of various quantum states and quantum computers.
The price is influenced by many factors including the supply and demand in the market, industry trends, economic activity, market sentiment, and unexpected events.

Goldman Sachs said its forecast for the price of Brent crude in 2023 would be cut from $125 to $10 a barrel if Iranian crude returned to the market.
From January to June in 2022, primary aluminum, copper, lead, tin and nickel were in short supply, while zinc was in excess supply, according to the World Bureau of Metal Statistics.
Global aluminium giant Hydro will close an aluminum smelter in Slovakia next month because of soaring electricity prices in Europe, adding to pressure on European industries, including the metals industry. Zinc prices were also affected, hitting a two-month high on Tuesday.
Hydro said the shutdown was a response to unfavorable conditions, including "no sign of improvement in high electricity prices in the short term". The smelter is operating at 60 per cent of its annual capacity of 175000 tonnes and will suffer huge losses if it continues to operate for the rest of 2022.
Industries from fertiliser to aluminium have been paralysed by soaring energy costs as European natural gas supplies are tight, and the worst energy crisis in decades is expected to continue into next year, with benchmark electricity prices surging to record highs on Tuesday.
