Saudi Arabia on Friday took media to inspect oil facilities hit by Iranian attacks, showing melted pipes and burnt equipment.
The attack initially halved oil output from Saudi Arabia, the world's largest petroleum exporter. Responsibility was claimed by Yemen's Houthi movement, an Iran-backed group.
At Khurais, Reuters reporters were shown repair work under way, with cranes erected around two burnt-out stabilisation columns, which form part of oil-gas separation units, and melted pipes.
"We are working 24/7," one executive of Saudi Aramco said, adding that Aramco is confident full production at Khurais would resume by the end of September.
Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir said on Thursday the attacks were an "extension of the Iranian regime's hostile and outlawed behaviour".
