Expected meeting on Sharara oilfield shutdown.. Is the crisis over?

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

FEZZAN – A meeting between the organizers of Fezzan’s Anger movement, a delegation from the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA), and the National Oil Corporation (NOC) is to be held on Monday regarding meeting Fezzan’s demands and the continued closure of Sharara oilfield, identical sources revealed.

Pictures showed the organizers of the movement to erecting a tent for negotiations near the field of Sharara.

Other sources pointed to the existence of signs of a breakthrough for the closure of Sharara field, one of the largest oil fields in Libya.

“They used to bring us like herds to the east and north of the country. We are not going to go to them this time. We are not honored by their comfortable hotel rooms, and we are proud of our golden sand,” said Dr. Mohammed Omaykil, a spokesman for Fezzan’s foe, in a post on Facebook.

“If the government does not respond during this week to the demands of the people of Fezzan, next Friday will be the Friday of refusing the painkillers,” he added.

“When we talk about the marginalization of the south, we do not mean gasoline and gas, but we mean where is our share of Libya?” he said.”

Can the children of Fezzan work in Tripoli, Misrata, Benghazi or elsewhere?”Can the people of Fezzan work in the Zawia refinery, Melita, the iron or steel factory, or the cement factories, and can the people of Fezzan work for the Foreign Investment Authority, embassies and attachés?” he added.

“Is there a general administration for any bank in Fezzan, and is there a branch of the National Oil Corporation in Fezzan and an airline administration?” he pointed out.

“Unemployment has made the youth of Fezzan thieves, smugglers and drug traffickers, fighting because of unemployment,” Omaykil said.

The National Oil Corporation (NOC) has declared a state of force majeure on the Sharara oilfield, declaring that it refuses to pay any ransom to what it called the militia that closed the field.
