Yanbu Cement Says Production Line to Be Delayed on Fuel Shortage

Yanbu Cement, a Saudi Arabian cement maker, said that a production line scheduled to open by the end of this month will be delayed because of a lack of oil and natural gas needed to power its output.

“The major reason impacting the operation of the new line 5 is the non-availability of a fuel allocation,” general manager Saud Saleh Islam said today in response to e-mailed questions. The opening schedule will depend on the timing of this allocation, he said.
