RIYADH (Reuters) - Attacks on two oil facilities in Saudi Arabia have partially disrupted crude and gas production in the world's top oil exporter, Saudi Arabia's energy minister said on Sunday.
The minister said in a statement published by the Saudi Press Agency that the attacks on the Aramco facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais disrupted the supply of crude to the company by 5.7 million barrels per day, or about 50 percent of its production.
The minister said part would be compensated for the withdrawal of Aramco's oil stocks.
