Satellite images show the activity taking place on the Abqaiq site

Kayrros also said that ignition – burning gas from oil fields – was at “usual minimum levels” in Ghawar, Khurais and Abqaiq.

The low ignition levels are in line with the resumption of gas compression activities at the Abqaiq plant, highlighting Saudi Aramco’s efforts to restore production levels, Kayrros said.

Satellite images of Saudi Arabia’s Abqaiq oil refinery, which was damaged during a September 14 attack, show signs of a return to thermal activity, the firm said for Kayrros data analysis on Thursday.

Sources told Reuters on Wednesday that Saudi Arabia has restored oil production capacity to 11.3 million barrels a day, maintaining a faster-than-expected recovery after its September 14 attacks on its facilities.

“Of the five NGL compression units identified by Kayrros, three units show signs of thermal activity, implying that NGL compression is resuming,” said Kayrros.

Images taken Wednesday also show a thermal activity in another unit, which could be an amine sweetening unit, Kayrros added./Investing.com
