Riyadh, February 4, 2011
Saudi Arabia's Ras Tanura port, a major oil operations centre for Saudi Aramco, has resumed operations after a brief shutdown on Thursday due to bad weather, a port source said.
'Yes, it has reopened. It was shut for around six hours due to high tide in the early morning,' the source said. 'Six ships are currently berthing and loading.'
