Aramco gave no other details in the statement.

The pipeline was shut as a precaution after fire erupted in pumping station No. 8, leaving minor damage. Aramco and Saudi energy minister Khalid al-Falih said on Tuesday exports and supplies were unaffected by the attack.

The 1,200-km (744-mile) pipeline links the country's oil-rich eastern region to the Red Sea port city of Yanbu. Saudi officials have blamed the attacks on Yemen's Iranian-aligned Houthi militias.

The pipeline, the main export route to Aramco's customers in Europe, has a capacity to carry 5 million b/d of crude.
