Aramco's customers report fuel delivery delays

Ahead of the official update by the Ministry of Energy in Riyadh on Tuesday, reports emerged that Saudi Arabian Oil Co. or Saudi Aramco has diverted three tankers scheduled to load distillates at the port in Al-Jubail in the Persian Gulf. Ship trackers from Kpler said three vessels turned around and that six more could follow, with the possibility of a cancelation of the orders. The producer of crude, a state monopoly, has halved oil production upon a mysterious and devastating attack by drones or missiles.

The Sti Savile Row, the Sti Spiga and the Polar Cod could head for India or the United Arab Emirates, according to updates. Separate media speculation indicated some October deliveries were postponed but without reduction. The pipeline toward Sitra in Bahrain was shut down, the firm revealed. Brent has skyrocketed 20% at this week's start of trading, which was the biggest intraday move ever, though the rise subsided to just below 9% in the meantime.
