Saudi Arabia Reopens Key Refinery: Saudi Arabia’s Ras Tannurah refinery, a key fuel supplier to U.S.-led forces in the Persian Gulf, resumed production after two weeks of repairs due to fire damage, oil industry sources said. They said the refinery--the world’s biggest, with a capacity of 530,000 barrels a day--is now producing around 300,000 barrels. The refinery was processing 500,000 barrels per day of crude before the fire Nov. 30.
