Saudi Arabia’s oil flows to Bahrain have gradually resumed after a brief halt, Bahrain’s national oil company BAPCO said.

“Operations are under way to increase the refining output gradually, in cooperation with Aramco, upon completion of repairs soon,” BAPCO said in a statement late on Saturday.

Saudi Arabia’s energy ministry said on Saturday that oil pumping to Bahrain had been suspended. It said it was stepping up security precautions at its own facilities after Bahrain blamed “terrorism” linked to Iran for an oil pipeline blast.

Emergency and rescue personnel are seen blocking the road leading to a fire in an oil pipeline in Buri village, south of Manama, Bahrain, on November 11, 2017. (Reuters)
