Saudi Arabia is home to the largest oil fields in the world (including Ghawar, which stretches 120 miles) - a luxury that helps companies like Aramco produce oil at a massive discount.
"Fluctuations in the price at which the company is able to sell crude oil could cause the company's results of operations and cash flow to vary significantly", Aramco said.
That is now shifted beneath King Salman and his son, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who have taken a more active part in controlling different power centres in the kingdom, such as Aramco, Wald said.

Aramco estimates its proved liquids reserves at 227 billion barrels and its total hydrocarbon reserves at 257 billion barrels of oil equivalent for half a century, a high and comfortable level by global standards, announced Fitch.
However, it does not match up to global oil companies in terms of cash generated per barrel, according to data from Fitch Ratings.
The SABIC deal will be completed in 2020, Aramco said separately in the prospectus, adding it will fund half of the acquisition with promissory notes issued to the PIF.
Aramco told potential bondholders it generated operating cash flow of $121 billion in 2018.
Moody's said that considering Aramco has a substantial cash flow generation capacity, it can fund the SABIC deal without the need to borrow.
