One person dies in Saudi Aramco oil pipeline leak

The oil leak also injured three other people, including an Aramco employee



State oil giant Saudi Aramco said on Saturday it had contained a “limited” oil leak from one of its pipelines near Abqaiq that had caused the death of a contractor and injured three other people, including an Aramco employee.

Aramco gave no details on the cause of the leak but said in a statement that it would conduct a thorough investigation.

It said two of the injured people had been discharged from hospital.

Aramco’s facility in Abqaiq is the world’s largest oil processing facility and the largest crude oil stabilisation plant.
