Following yesterday’s attack on oil tankers, today Saudi Energy Minister Khalid Al Falid disclosed that two East/West oil pipeline pumping stations were attacked with drones. The attack was denounced as’an act of terrorism’ that targeted global oil supplies.

“Falih said that Saudi oil output and exports for crude and refined products were continuing without disruption, but that the state oil giant Aramco had halted oil pumping in the pipeline while the damage was evaluated and the stations were repaired, according to a statement carried by the state news agency SPA.”
