    Nima disappeared ? since production returned to 11 million barrels ?????
    No I was in the hospital.
    Anyway... Yes they claim to have increased the flow. But only by patching up their tanks not fixing them. The financial Times had an article on this. Instead of fixing them they have literally patched the tanks and done away with all inspection and API standards. The article quoted an engineer that said they will shut down the plant within 3 months to redo this process.

    The Aramco IPO is coming up and they don't have the time to fix this in light of it.

    I qualified my posts many times before and I said they won't fix it. I was correct. Bringing production up when you have to shut down the plant again is typical short term retardation that's expected of Arabs.

    "But only by patching up their tanks not fixing them" - stop playing semantics.

    obviously because this isn't the 70s anymore. spare parts are in stock.
    the oil and gas won't create a crisis unless the Saudis themselves close the tap
    My dad fell for this propaganda trap which Lebanese political leaders scum are good at
    and he quickly filled up the tank of his car while all I did was relax and not use my car for 3 days
    and the prices went back to normal
    Spare parts when referring to tanks and towers built from steel ladies and gentlemen. Apparently in the 70s steel didn't exist but it's plentiful today.

    Beautiful.

    They can increase production, but it's because of redundancies and temporary patching up. Their production capacity is actually higher than what's typically reported.

    Not my fault you people have never stepped foot on an industrial site. You can't patch up a ****ing pressure vessel and expect it to work more than a few month. Put a hole through your water heater, patch it up with a curved steel plate and weld it and see the results. Make sure you have insurance.

    Holy Buddah. This is why the middle east is so ****ed. I have to sit here and explain why it's impossible to rebuild a 300 foot tower and double digit destroyed pressure vessels is impossible in 2 weeks and why slapping a ****ing steel plate isn't fixing it.

    Y'all are genuinely not all there.

    Steel existed long before the 70s true, what was new in the 70s was aluminium foil (sanita)
    anyways, in the 70s there was no modular design/planning for such projects because such threats didn't exist,
    transportation technology was not as efficient as it is today, not to forget monitoring and command and control through sensors and computer networks
    there's a lot of factors between 2019 and the 70s
    Again if the Saudis themselves, don't close the tap, the oil and gas won't be sabotaged unless it is an "all out open war".

    1 - who told you they are doing that ?! ... they have spare parts !! ... you live in Lebanon habibeh, where a road takes eons to be fixed ?!
    in construction they bring an entire wall and they connect it to the other 3 and you have a room in 2 hours these days.
    2 huge domes, 1 huge cylinder, with studs, pre-mounted on their thick steel walls and you got a tank that only needs
    to be welded on both ends of its caps and you got a readily available pressure tank

    2 - there's something called reserve tanks that will keep the supply rolling and buy them enough time to repair the damage.

    3 - what's happening there in Saudi Arabia is an American scheme !! who do you think gave the orders for the Saudi air force to hit their own ground troops and military equipment ? who has a sane mind and control of the situation would do that to their own forces ?

    Oh, and yes, I have set my foot in heavy industrial site(s) before and quite few times too.

    Not semantics. Did I not say they could bring production back up? But they haven't fixed anything. Because it's not humanly possible to fix a blown up refinery in a week. You can slap a steel plate and weld it... but that weld isn't going to stay on for long and it certainly isn't according to the API codes the Saoodi imbeciles are supposedly following. They have more refining capacity than what they report. Some of that refining capacity is being put to use. What they can salvage temporarily is being patched up until the next scheduled shut down. At least that's what they're probably hoping. Let's see how long they can keep the patching going.

    Full repairs to the Abqaiq facility and Khurais field, which were hit by missile and drone strikes that western powers have said originated in Iran, are still expected to take months to fully complete — with specialist equipment required to be custom made to carry out the fixes
    Heatmapping used by the company to monitor Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities indicates production has risen at onshore and offshore fields that are not as reliant on the Abqaiq processing facility, which is used to prep the majority of Saudi Arabia’s crude for export.
    In other words, they are producing oil that doesn't need to be processed through the damaged plant.

    The company is running its domestic refineries at approximately 1m b/d below their normal capacity to free up crude for export.
    Saudi Aramco’s trading arm has also been in the market buying up additional cargoes of gasoline to replace the shortfall caused by squeezing its own refining system, according to traders outside the company. It has also looked to buy crude from other countries for Saudi Arabia’s own refineries.
    The company has also been pulling barrels from storage to keep its exports going at as close to a normal level as possible.
    Orbital Insight, a company that uses satellite imagery and artificial intelligence to measure the amount of crude held in storage tanks, said it had seen an average of 1.3m b/d of crude being withdrawn from Saudi storage in the past seven days, or more than 10 per cent of the country’s total inventories.
    lol

    Production return
    You lost next
    That's your argument? Production returned? Even though it hasn't? They're pulling oil out of their reserves and accessing wells that produce a different type of oil. Should I call you names? Because that seems like the level you're on. Using adult words is lost on you.

    Fixing means making it operation and so far it is working.
    Patch i.e. quick fix can later be replaced with much better alternative and in planned and controlled order.

    So, unless goal of Iranian attack was not to stop oil production, but something else, then Iran has failed.
