The Address | Benghazi – Libya
TRIPOLI – The United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) welcomed on Tuesday the decision of the Tripoli-based National Oil Corporation (NOC) to lift the force majeure at El Sharara oilfield.
“UNSMIL welcomes the National Oil Corporation decision to lift the force majeure and the immediate return of production in Shararah Oil Field,” reads the Mission’s statement.
UNSMIL emphasized “the need for protection of national facilities and ensuring a safe environment for all staff for the benefit of Libyan people.”
NOC officially announced on Monday it had lifted force majeure at the El Sharara oilfield, the country’s biggest, which has been closed since December when state guards and tribesmen seized it.
