Government condemns Houthi use of inventory oil in main pipeline

The government has condemned the Houthi militia's move to draw inventory crude oil out of a main oil pipeline that extends from Yemen's east (Safer region in Marib) to Yemen's west (the region of Ras Esa in the Red Sea port city of Hodeidah."

The rebel militia wants to take the crude oil in the pipeline and the crude reserve in the floating cistern in Ras Esa to sell them. The pipeline alone holds 850,000 to 900,000 barrels of crude oil.

The government's main oil exploration and production company Safer warned that such a move by the rebels will have an economic and environmental impact; "the crude oil is a property of the whole Yemeni people" and the pipeline, which cost $1 billion to purchase and install in 1986, "will be damaged by rust" if drained.

Secondly, by emptying the pipeline the rebels will compromise the pipeline's safety and the wholesomeness of the environment surrounding to the pipeline.
