PFG prevents NOC tanker from loading crude oil
NOC today attempted a technical process to load the very large crude carrier (VLCC) Delta Ocean at Es Sider oil port. Regrettably, the Petroleum Facilities Guard did not allow the tanker to enter the port.
“NOC is ready to restart oil exports immediately,” said NOC Chairman Eng Mustafa Sanalla. “NOC reaffirms its call for all Libyan parties to facilitate its work, in line with the clear Libyan and international consensus that the NOC should lift force majeure and resume its vital mission. The NOC is consulting with all parties to find a way forward that will ensure the safety of NOC facilities and personnel”.
National Oil Corporation (NOC) had called on all Libyan parties to support the corporation and allow a tanker on standby at Es Sider oil port to start loading crude oil from storage. NOC also demands that foreign mercenaries and armed groups leave Es Sider port immediately.
As part of the ongoing Berlin Process, the Economic Working Group on Libya met yesterday, and reiterated its full support for the NOC in lifting force majeure on oil exports nationwide.
There is an urgent need to restart the production as soon as possible to stop the damage to Libyan oil infrastructure and to protect the NOC’s vital assets from further deterioration and collapse.
NOC (59.18%), Total (16.33%), ConocoPhillips (16.33%) and Hess (8.16%) jointly own the Waha concession, which is responsible for management of the port.
