Saudi Arabia says it has contained a fires after two large #oil facilities were attacked with drones: the Abqaiq processing center and the Khurais oilfield (video is Abqaiq) | #OOTT #SaudiArabia 🇸🇦 ⛽️🛢 bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
Abqaiq is perhaps the *world’s most important* oil installation. According to the @EIAgov, the plant has a capacity of >7 million b/d. “Most of the oil produced in the country [Saudi Arabia] is processed at Abqaiq before export or delivery to refineries” eia.gov/beta/internati…
This what @Aramco says about the Abqaiq plant: “As the company's largest oil processing facility and the largest crude oil stabilization plant in the world, Abqaiq plays a pivotal role in our day-to-day operations.”
One important thing to bear in mind looking at the fires (while we still await word from Aramco): Abqaiq may have gone into an emergency shut down during the attack, triggering emergency flaring — that flaring may be some of the fires on the videos circulating today
