Libya’s National Oil Corporation Agrees To Resume Crude Exports

Libya’s National Oil Corporation has agreed to  resume crude exports from ports seized in recent days by forces loyal to eastern commander Khalifa Haftar.

According to Libyan National Army and the pro-Haftar head of Libya’s eastern parliament, the seized ports would be placed under NOC control,with hope for a “new phase of cooperation.


Pro-Haftar forces took control of the ports of Ras Lanuf, Es Sider, Brega and Zueitina from units of the Petroleum Facilities Guard on Sunday.

The move risks a new conflict over Libya’s oil resources, and possible armed retaliation from Haftar’s rivals.

Meanwhile, NOC insist all exports must be within the U.N. resolution.
