"The United States Government is monitoring the situation and remains committed to ensuring global oil markets are stable and well supplied", the U.S. statement said.

Iraq is denying that its country was the site from where Yemeni-rebel drones were launched to attack Saudi oil installations.

Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri - who was briefly held in Saudi Arabia in late 2017 - condemned the attack, saying it was part of a pattern of "aggression" against the kingdom, despite Riyadh's bloody record in Yemen.

That drew an angry response from Tehran, where a foreign ministry spokesman said: "Such fruitless and blind accusations and remarks are incomprehensible and meaningless".

The remarks were created to damage Iran's reputation and provide a pretext for "future actions" against the Islamic republic, he added.

"Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman will push the company to demonstrate that it can effectively tackle terrorism or war challenges", analysts led by Ayham Kamel, head of Middle East and North Africa research at the Eurasia Group, said in a research report.

"The United States strongly condemns today's attack on critical energy infrastructure".

"The plant is a major source of supply and a prolonged outage as a result of the attack has the potential to negatively impact global energy markets".

The Abqaiq plant is Aramco's largest oil processing facility and crude oil stabilisation plant, with a capacity of more than seven million barrels per day, according to the company.

The oil infrastructure is also vulnerable to cyber attacks.
