Saudi Aramco has reportedly told some of its clients that vessel loading has resumed following disruptions caused by recent drone attacks on oil facilities in Khurais and Abqaiq, according to Reuters.
The Saudi Oil Supply Planning and Scheduling (OSPAS) department said that loading operations were in progress.
Moreover, Reuters cited sources in major Asian refineries saying that oil tanker loading was normal as of September 16.
Attacks on Aramco’s largest Saudi oilfields in Khurais and the world’s biggest crude processing facility at Abqaiq have partially halted the company’s production, reducing Saudi oil output by more than half, specifically around 5.7 million barrels per day (b/d), which makes for about 5% of global oil supply.
There were no casualties from the attacks, according to Saudi Aramco CEO Amin Nasser.
