SANAA: Attackers blew up Yemen's main oil export pipeline on Friday, halting the flow of crude, an official working for Yemen's state-run Safer oil company told Reuters, declining to be named.
"Subversive elements" had blown up the pipeline linking the al-Hawi Wadi Abida production field in the central Marib province to the Red Sea, he said.
The blast had halted crude flows to the Ras Isa terminal but pumping would resume once the pipeline had been repaired, he added.
The last in a spate of attack on the pipeline was in January, when production was halted for one day. In December, Yemen said oil was being pumped through the pipeline at a rate of around 70,000 barrels per day (bpd).
