Libya’s National Oil calls on government to protect oil fields
On Saturday, a fire broke out at the pipeline connecting the Sarir oilfield with the oil port of Hariga in eastern Lİbya. The fire was extinguished on Sunday. Following the fire, Libya’s oil production reportedly declined by 180,000 barrels per day (bpd) to around 200,000 bpd. Libya had a production capacity of 1.6 million bpd before the 2011 rebellion.
Previously, the NOC had announced a force majeure on oil output from the Es Sider and Ras Lanuf oil ports, which have a combined processing capacity of 560,000 bpd, because of ongoing armed clashes in the country.
