Saudi Aramco closed part of the Safaniyah offshore oilfield two weeks ago because of a power cable cut by a vessel’s anchor, a source familiar with the matter said on February 15, Gulf Business reported.

The company achieves a progress in repairing the damages, according to the source, who said that the situation is “under control”.

The company’s facilities and operations, including the Safaniyah offshore oilfield, were safe and normal, Aramco said in a statement.

Safaniyah is the largest offshore oilfield in the world, with a capacity of more than one million barrels per day (b/d).
