Libyan oil production halted by LNA
Published by Lydia Woellwarth,
Libya’s National Oil Corporation (NOC) has declared force majeure after the LNA blockades oil exports from Brega, Ras Lanuf, Hariga, Zueitina and Sidra ports.
The LNA General Command and the Petroleum Facilities Guard of the Central and Eastern Regions have instructed the managements of Sirte Oil Company, Harouge Oil Operations, Waha Oil Company, Zueitina Oil Company and Arab Gulf Oil Company (AGOCO), subsidiaries of the National Oil Corporation, to stop oil exports from Brega, Ras Lanuf, Hariga, Zueitina, and Sidra ports in Libya. The blockade instructions were given by Major General Nagi al-Moghrabi, the commander of PFG appointed by the LNA, and Colonel Ali al-Jilani from the LNA’s Greater Sirte Operations Room.
This will result in a loss of crude oil production of 800 000 bpd and daily financial losses of approximately US$55 million/d.
