Saudi oil sector secure, minister says after attacks

Saudi Arabia said Sunday that the kingdom’s massive oil installations are well protected a few days after a drone attack claimed by Yemeni rebels on a key oil pipeline.

“We have strong (oil) industry security… everybody is vulnerable to extreme acts of sabotage,” Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih told reporters on the sidelines of a meeting in Jeddah of major oil producers.

Yemen’s Huthi rebels last week claimed responsibility for a drone attack on the huge east-west pipeline forcing it to temporarily shut down.
