CAIRO (Pakistan Point News / Sputnik - 16th July, 2022) The new head of Libya's National Oil Corporation (NOC), Farhat Bengdara, appointed by the government in Tripoli, announced the removal of force majeure from all fields and oil ports.
"The National Oil Corporation announces the cancellation of force majeure and the complete cessation of the closure of all Libyan fields and ports, from today, July 15," Bengdara said during a press conference in Benghazi.
Bengdara also announced the corporation's plans to bring oil production volumes to pre-crisis levels.
According to a number of Libyan media, protesters entered the NOC facilities and demanded that the head of the GNU, Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh, transfer power to the recently elected head of the new Libyan Cabinet, Fathi Bashagha. In May, Bashagha, after an unsuccessful attempt to locate the cabinet in Tripoli, announced that the government would start working in the city of Sirte.
