Energy minister says oil supply back to normal after attack on Saudi Aramco facilities

Saudi Minister of Energy has declared that oil supply went back to normal after the devastating attack against two Aramco facilities that were carried out by Yemeni Houthi rebels' drones on 14 September, APA reports quoting sputniknews.

The minister also stated that the county's oil market is expected to be fully back online by the end of this month.

News of this development come as Aramco allowed its employees to enter one of the stricken installations for the first time since the attack.

On 14 September, two compounds belonging to Aramco caught massive fire after being hit by a drone strike.

The company had to shut them down, which resulted in more than a twofold drop of Saudi Arabia's net oil output and, consequently, a surge of oil prices worldwide.

Despite the fact that the responsibility for the attack was claimed by the military wing of Yemen's Ansar Allah movement, also known as the Houthis, the United States blamed Iran for this incident instead, with Tehran denying these accusations.
