How Much Oil Does Saudi Arabia Actually Have?

Generally most data shows that Saudi Arabia has a "proven" 260 billion barrels worth of oil reserves. 

Aramco mentions they could have up a balance of 400 Billion Barrels as "probable, possible, contingent" reserves. 

You hear within the O&G industry that SA probably doesn't even know how much oil reserves they have. 

With advancing technologies / extraction - some experts mention up to 900 Billion Barrels could be achievable. 

I leave the question to you - how many billions of barrels do you think Saudi Arabia really have laying around?

For analyst who can barely get a right number on what weekly crude inventories will be, I doubt they can accurately predict how much Oil SA has. In my experience, SA has always managed to meet production expectations and have disproved "oil experts" again and again
