In an interview with Bloomberg Television last week, Saudi Arabia's energy minister, Khalid al-Falih, hinted that an Aramco offering would probably come next year, asserting that the timeline would make little difference.

Saudi's Bin Salman is believed to favor listing in NY, while officials, including Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih, reportedly favor London.

Saudi Arabia is understood to be planning to list up to 5 per cent of Saudi Aramco on a stock exchange, a transaction that could value the company at as much as $2 trillion, easily making it the world's largest listed company.

After a stunning decree by the Saudi King Salman, allowing women to drive in 2018, the Saudi Ministry of Transport invited Saudi Women to "Safe Driving Environment" forum.

With the prospect of a listing in London and NY receding, sources familiar with the IPO told Reuters that Hong Kong was now emerging as an increasingly likely compromise because Riyadh wants to help Asian nations that are expected to become cornerstone investors.

Beyond London and New York, Reuters reported that Hong Kong is increasingly emerging as a likely compromise because Riyadh is keen to support Asian nations that could become important investors in the kingdom's economy. But with a total capitalisation of about $475 billion, it could struggle to absorb Aramco without the participation of foreign funds.

Officials have said they are in the process of recovering $107 billion (87 billion euros) seized in the crackdown, in the form of property, securities and cash, handed over by the suspects in exchange for their freedom.
