TEHRAN, Sept 16 - An informed Saudi source says the damages inflicted on the Aramco oil facilities in the recent Yemeni drone attacks are so massive that it is not clear when the country's oil output can return to normal.

TNnnnnSaudi says unclear when oil output will return to normal after 'massive' damageEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)_Attacks by 10 Yemeni drones on Saudi Arabia’s key oil facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais have shut down about 50 percent of the kingdom’s crude and gas production, cutting the state oil giant’s crude oil supply by around 5.7 million barrels per day.

An oil industry source briefed on the developments said on Sunday it is unclear how long the oil production shutdown will continue, as it is impossible to fix the "big" damages overnight.

Aramco has given no timeline for output resumption. However, a source close to the matter told Reuters the return to full oil capacity could take "weeks, not days".

Another source briefed on the developments said the kingdom's oil exports would continue to run as normal this week thanks to large storage in the country.

High-resolution satellite photos of the damaged facilities "declassified" by the US administration on Sunday show the drone attacks have hit at least 19 points with great precision.
