Azzawiya Oil Refining Company stops refining operations due to lack of crude

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

BENGHAZI – The Azzawiya Oil Refining Company said on Sunday it was forced to stop refining operations due to a lack of crude supplies and no inventory.

The Azzawiya Oil Refining Company is a subsidy of Libya’s state of firm the National Oil Corporation (NOC).

Libya’s oil production had dropped sharply since a group of tribesmen closed eastern oilfields to protest the use of Syrian mercenaries by the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) as part of a security deal with Turkey.
