(D) fund intended to sustain the state’s economy after exhausting its oil reserves
(E) fund that they intend to sustain the state’s economy after oil reserves are exhausted

I'd go with C - it's concise and clear. B and E both use the personal pronoun "they", which has no clear antecedent. A uses the passive voice "after the exhaustion of its oil reserves", vs the active voice in C "after oil reserves are exhausted", and D makes it sound like the fund is exhausting the oil reserves! If it's not C, my second choice would be A.
