The Address | Benghazi – Libya
BENGHAZI – Chairman of the Tripoli-based National Oil Cooperation (NOC), Mustafa Sanalla, said on Thursday that Libya’s oil production declined last week due to bad weather.
Speaking to Russian news agency Sputnik, Sanalla said, “We lost a lot of oil production during the last week due to bad weather, where 7 ports out of the eight ports (for the export of oil) were closed. The current production size is about one million barrels per day.”
The eastern Libyan oil ports of Es Sider, Ras Lanuf, Brega and Zueitina were still closed on Thursday because of bad weather, port and shipping sources told Reuters.
Sanalla’s statement came prior to the 175th meeting of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) in Vienna.
