RIYADH (Reuters) - Saudi Arabian energy minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman will hold a news conference at around 8 p.m. local time (1700 GMT) on Tuesday following attacks on Saudi Aramco facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais which have reduced the company’s crude output by about 50%, the media ministry said.

Prince Abdulaziz had said on Sunday that Aramco would have more information to share within 48 hours.
