The Saudi-led coalition have been locked in battle with the Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen since March 2015: The fires at the facility began after the sites were “targeted by drones,” the interior ministry was quoted as saying by the state-run Saudi Press Agency: Saudi Aramco, the state-owned oil giant, has not yet commented: It describes its Abqaiq oil processing facility in Buqyaq as “the largest crude oil stabilisation plant in the world”.

Estimates suggest it can process up to 7 million barrels of crude oil a day, while the Khurais oil field is thought to produce over 1 million barrels of crude oil a day.
