The question I have where those spearoids still being used?

In another thread somebody said they where old technology dating from the 60s and so longer being used because the loss and speed to process no longer made them economical. If this is the case then the only thing holding back processing is getting the towers back online, which sounds like a much easier process vs repairing the spearoids.

Also assuming they are holding back production they also have the processing capacity to run full bore. How much of this space capacity if any is idle at other locations, and how long to bring it back online?

Why would they be there if they weren't being used?  They may be old but that doesn't mean they aren't being used.  The newer GOSPs may not use them but there is no reason to think they aren't being used at Abqaiq where they have been used for years now.  Unless that facility was upgraded then they are most likely still in use.  The other question is, why target them if they aren't being used?

Oilfield equipment is rarely replaced, it's an investment that they just keep on repairing for years.
