Houthi fighters in Yemen have claimed two drone attacks on Saudi #Aramco factories in Abqaiq and Khurais provinces which sparked large fires. Saudi interior ministry spokesman says the fires in the state oil company have been brought under control
Abqaiq plays a pivotal role in Aramco's day-to-day operations. #Saudi Aramco says #Abqaiq is the company's largest oil processing facility and the largest crude oil stabilization plant in the world saudiaramco.com/en/creating-va…
#SaudiArabia is shutting down about half of its #oil output after apparently coordinated drone strikes hit facilities in what #Yemen’s Houthi rebels described as one of their largest-ever attacks inside the kingdom according to @WSJ & @Reuters wsj.com/articles/drone…
@WSJ @Reuters "We don't know how much of the facility has been damaged but this will bring down #Saudi oil production. This will also have an impact on global oil production" we discussed Houthi attack on #Aramco earlier this morning on @AJEnglish aljazeera.com/news/2019/09/d…
@WSJ @Reuters @AJEnglish #Saudi military says "based on initial investigations, operational evidence and physical evidence in the locations of the terrorist attack, investigations are ongoing to determine the parties responsible for planning and executing these terrorist attacks"
“Abqaiq is the heart of the system and they just had a heart attack. We just don’t know the severity."

The Quote of the day on #SaudiAramco via @JavierBlas quoting a good analogy from Roger Diwan, a consultant at IHS Mark
US accuses Iran of #AramcoDroneStrike after Houthis in Yemen claimed responsibility; the use of drones shows a vulnerability in Saudi air defences which are primarily provided by the United States
In a phone call with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed @realDonaldTrump offered support for “Saudi Arabia’s self defense” and condemned the attack on “critical energy infrastructure.” thehill.com/homenews/admin…
@realDonaldTrump Good recap of #SaudiAramco by @energyintel

- Armco & #Saudi oil minister didn't say how long it'd take to restore production
- US says it's ready to release oil from Strategic Petroleum Reserve "to offset any disruptions to oil markets"
- Saudi statements didn't mention drones
Attacks on #SaudiAramco highlight the kingdom's vulnerability to attacks by drones or missiles.

Prince Abdulaziz said in addition to oil production, the attacks also led to suspension of 2 billion cubic feet per day of associated #gas production. #OOTT #OOTD latest on @AJEnglish
The largest complex of its kind in the world #Abqaiq oil facility in Eastern Province processes some 7 Mb/d. It receives SourCrude & upgrades it into sweet crude that's then pumped to export terminals on Mideast Gulf or Red Sea coast via East-West pipeline energyintel.com/pages/eig_arti…
This @WSJ map shows how "#Houthi" drone capabilities have increased with the support of #Iran - these drones can loiter but are not designed to return to base but can be controlled over long distances #Saudi #KSA via @andreas_krieg
@WSJ @andreas_krieg Satellite imagery released by US govt shows what officials say are at least 19 points of impact at two #Saudi energy facilities in #Abqaiq and #Khurais. US officials insist the photos show impacts consistent with attack coming from the direction of #Iran rather than from #Yemen
