Now, news has come in that the oil giant has resumed pumping through the affected pipeline as per online portal Oil Price.
The pipeline runs across the country from the Arabian Gulf in the East to the Red Sea in the West.
Though the damages were minor to the pumping station, Saudi Aramco temporarily shut down the pipeline as a precautionary measure.
