RIYADH--Qatar's Ras Laffan Liquefied Natural Gas Co., known as RasGas, said Thursday it has been attacked by a computer virus that has shut down part of its computer system since Aug. 27, but left its production unharmed.
Desktop computers were affected but operational systems both onsite and offshore are secure, the world's second-biggest LNG producer said in a statement.
The bug did "not affect production at the Ras Laffan Industrial City plant or scheduled cargoes," it said.
Aramco said Sunday it has restored all of its main internal network services and workstations have since been cleaned and restored and, as a precaution, remote Internet access to online resources was restricted.
