Aramco-Shell refinery starts exports again

Saudi Aramco and Royal Dutch Shell's joint venture Jubail refinery restarted oil exports yesterday after bad weather interrupted the flow for four to five days, shipping sources said.

Exports across the Gulf had restarted yesterday after bad weather disrupted crude flows from Iran and Kuwait. Refined product exports from Iran, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia were also interrupted.

The 305,000 barrels per day Jubail Sasref refinery restarted oil product exports at 8 am (0500 GMT) on Monday, shippers said.

One oil product berth remained shut, a shipper said. The berth is outside the breakwater at Jubail port and is exposed to what were still high seas, he said.

But inbound traffic to the port has resumed, allowing tankers to load oil products at a second berth inside the breakwater at Jubail.
