FACTBOX-Biggest buyers of Saudi Arabian oil

    Sept 14 (Reuters) - Yemen's Iran-aligned Houthi group on
Saturday attacked two plants at the heart of Saudi Arabia's oil
industry in a strike that could impact about 5 million barrels
per day (bpd) of crude production - close to half of the
kingdom's output or 5% of global oil supply.
    The Saudis are the world's biggest oil exporters, sending
more than 7 million barrels of crude to numerous destinations
around the globe every day - equal to nearly one-third of
exports by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting
Countries. 
    The bulk of those exports go to Asia and the Pacific region,
according to OPEC.
