DUBAI/LONDON (Reuters) – Saudi Arabia’s oil production and exports have been disrupted, said three sources familiar with the matter, after drone attacks on two Aramco plants on Saturday, including the world’s biggest oil processing facility.

One of the sources said the attacks have impacted 5 million barrels per day of oil production — almost half the kingdom’s current output. The source did not elaborate.

Saudi Aramco operates the world’s largest oil processing facility and stabilization plant in the world at Abqaiq, in eastern Saudi Arabia. The plant has a processing capacity of more than 7 million barrels per day.
