The famous world’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) provider’s RasGas computer network has been blacked out by an unknown computer virus.
RasGas is the second largest LNG producer in the world based in Qatar. According to a news report, it has been offline for three days.
An official RasGas spokesperson declared in Pipeline:
“Our IT department is facing technical difficulties, we have been affected by an ‘unknown virus’, our operational systems onsite and offshore are secure and this does affect nor impact our production as a Ras Laffan Industrial City plant or scheduled cargoes,”
The IT team of RasGas is doing everything they can to resolve the issue as soon as possible.
This attack is followed by another widely publicized hack on 30,000 devices of Saudi Aramco. Saudi Aramco is the largest oil producer based in Saudi Arabia.
