Riyadh abandons Red Sea oil tanker route after Houthi attack
Amid rising oil prices, Riyadh announced on Thursday that, until further notice, its tankers would avoid transiting the Red Sea-Bab al-Mandeb-Suez route to export markets after a Yemeni Houthi rebel attack in the Red Sea on two Saudi tankers. The kingdom’s Energy Minister Khalid al-Faith said each of the tankers carried 2 million barrels of crude, that the damage was minimal and that no oil spill was reported.
