[size=36]Newspaper: Saudi Arabia informs Japan's largest oil refinery about a possible change in shipments[/size]
The paper quoted JXTG officials as saying Aramco did not specify a reason for the change in the degree of oil it supplies to Japan's largest refinery from light to heavy and medium as of October.
Aramco officials suspect Aramco will take longer than expected to repair its desulfurization facility needed to produce light crude oil used to produce gasoline and light diesel.
At least three oil tankers carried crude oil in Saudi Arabia for China and India and their crude was shifted from light to heavy as more buyers in Asia were asked to postpone shipments, Reuters reported, citing sources and data from Rivneft and Kepler. And change the degree of oil in September and October.
The September 14 attacks on Abqaiq and Khurais, two of the kingdom's largest oil processing plants, caused major fires and serious damage, halving the production of the world's largest oil exporter by halting 5.7 million barrels per day of its exports.
Saudi Aramco, the president and chief executive officer of Saudi Aramco, said in a letter to Saudi Aramco employees on Saturday that after the September 14 attacks on its factories in Abqaiq and Khurais, Saudi Aramco was "stronger than before".
Yemen's Houthi movement has claimed responsibility for the attacks, but a US official said they were launched from southwestern Iran.
Aramco and GXTG did not respond to requests for comment on the report.
