Attacks placing oil supplies security at risk: Saudi Energy Minister

Ever since Trump re-clamped sanctions on Iran, tension in the gulf region has steadily heated up.

Saudi Arabian Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih stated, although the recent attacks on its energy assets had put the security of oil supply at risk, it however has had no impact on the country’s oil production.

Khalid al-Falih also called on Saudi Arabia’s partners to condemn the attacks.

His comments come in the wake of four commercial ships being sabotaged off the coast of the United Arab Emirates last Sunday following which there were drone attacks on its oil installations west of Riyadh.

Falih made this comments while speaking in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, ahead of a ministerial panel meeting of top OPEC and non-OPEC oil producers.
