What will happen to Saudi Arabia economy when reserves of petroleum are exhausted after 20-25 years?

The oil in Saudi Arabia will not be exhausted by 2040. Estimates give it far longer than that; it is the Gulf Countries that are more limited in their reserves. As for the meat of the question, e.g. what will happen to the Saudi economy when the reserves are, it will depend on how the income has been invested. Saudi Arabia has historically been slower to diversify its portfolio and, if current investment trends continue, Saudi Arabia will have a sharp decline following the exhaustion of its reserves.
