Yemen’s Maarib oil pipeline resumed operations earlier this week, nine months after it was shut due to sabotage, after repairs were completed, the pipeline operator at SAFER said on Tuesday.

“We are trying to fill the pipeline right now. We still have 2-3 more hours to start pumping to the floating vessel,” the SAFER official said.

SAFER is also the operator for the oil terminal on the Red Sea coast.

“It will probably take around 12-13 days before we have enough volume in the floating vessel in order to make the first liftings,” he added.
