To the public of the oil facility that was attacked Saudi
The government of Saudi Arabia has decided to open oil-related facilities that have been temporarily suspended due to attacks such as drones to foreign media for the first time. It seems that there is an aim to appeal Saudi Arabia's claim that Iran was involved in the attack while showing the damaged site.
In Saudi Arabia this month, two major oil-related facilities were attacked by drones and cruise missiles, temporarily halving crude oil production capacity.
The Saudi government says the attacks were conducted by drones and cruise missiles. On the 20th, the oil-related facilities that were attacked will be released to foreign media such as NHK for the first time.
Open to the public are oil-related facilities in Abu Kaiku and Klys in eastern Saudi Arabia, of which Abu Kaiku has a capacity of 7 million barrels per day, the largest in the world, and can be said to be the lifeline of crude oil production in Saudi Arabia.
The site is undergoing restoration work, and the Abu Kaiku facility is currently recovering about 40% of its crude oil processing volume, aiming for restoration during the month, and production at the Krys oil field is resumed.
The Saudi Ministry of Defense argues that the attack involves Iran, which is located north of Saudi Arabia, as the location of the attack is concentrated on the northern side of the tank.
The Saudi government seems to have the intent to appeal Saudi Arabia's claim that Iran was involved in the attack while showing the affected sites.
