RIYADH (Reuters) - Saudi finance minister Mohammed al-Jadaan said on Wednesday that Aramco’s announcement of restoring production after the Saturday attacks proved it can swiftly deal with any crisis.

“I congratulate Aramco on its announcement (of restoring production) yesterday, which proves its ability to deal quickly with crises,” Jadaan said.

Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman said on Tuesday that Saudi Arabia will restore its lost oil production by the end of September and has managed to recover supplies to customers to the levels they were at prior to weekend attacks on its facilities by drawing from its huge oil inventories.
