Yemen's Oil Refinery Resumes Operations

Yemen's 150,000 barrels per day Aden Oil Refinery resumed operations on Sunday after being shut for over a year as the conflict in the country worsened. "The refinery is back on stream and is refining 66,000 tons from the 1 million barrels it received from the Dabbah port it had in storage from before," an industry official at the refinery told Reuters, noting that the refinery was now operating at half its processing capacity. "Now the refinery can begin supplying to the power stations and be used for other domestic purposes," the official added. Power stations in the southern city of Aden have struggled to access fuel since July last year. Yemen has been gripped by war pitting the Houthi group, backed by troops loyal to ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh, and the fugitive president Abd-Rabbuh Mansur Hadi who is backed by Saudi Arabia. The Saudi-led coalition has regained control of parts of the country's south and east in the past year. Most foreign oil companies left the country after the war began in March 2015.
