Riyadh: Saudi Arabia has temporarily stopped production at the two Aramco oil facilities that were attacked, affecting about half of the company's total output, said Saudi Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman
The attacks "resulted in a temporary suspension of production at Abqaiq and Khurais plants," Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman, said in a statement carried by Saudi Press Agency.
The attacks also caused a halt in gas production of about two billion cubic feet per day, he added.
However, the attacks did not have an impact on the electricity and water supplies from the fuel or on the domestic market of hydrocarbons, the minister stated.
"These attacks resulted in production suspension of 5.7 million barrels of crude oil per day," Aramco said in a separate statement.
Amin Nasser, Aramco CEO, said work is being done to restore production and an update will be provided in the next two days.
No injuries were reported from the attacks, Nasser added.
