Saudi Aramco tells clients oil loading has resumed following attack – Reuters
YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 16, ARMENPRESS. Saudi Aramco has told some clients that vessel loading has resumed following disruptions caused by the weekend’s attacks on Saudi oil facilities, two sources who received the notice told Reuters.
The state company’s Oil Supply Planning and Scheduling (OSPAS) department said loading operations were in progress, they said, citing the notice.
Three sources with major Asian refineries, including one of the two that have seen the port notice, told Reuters their oil tanker loading was normal as of Monday.
The attacks knocked down 5.7 million barrels per day of crude production - more than half of top exporter Saudi Arabia’s output, or over 5% of global oil supply. Saudi officials have given no timeline for restoring full supply.
