Yemen’s Aden oil refinery resumed operations, after shutting down for more than a year due to political unrest, according to Reuters. The facility is currently operating at half its capacity, refining 66,000t from the 1m barrels of crude received from the Dabbah port.

Aden Refinery Company’ CEO, Mohammad al-Bakri, said it is now crucial for crude oil supplies to continue flowing into the refinery either from the recently reopened Masila oilfields or from allied states, as the facility can start to supplying to the city’s power stations that had previously struggled to access fuel, France 24 wrote.

The refinery halted operations after the facility was damaged during months of fighting in 2015 that raged after the rebels and their allies attacked the southern port city and most oil companies abandoning Yemen.
