By Sami Zaptia.
Lugano, 3 April 2018:
Libya’s National Oil Corporation (NOC) has announced that ethylene and polyethylene production is to start soon at the Ras Lanuf Oil and Gas Manufacturing Company. No exact date was given in the announcement.
It should be noted that the Ras Lanuf ethylene plant has been inactive since 2011, and the polyethylene plant has been suspended since 2013. The plants are awaiting necessary maintenance and the re-commissioning of the refinery to provide the necessary feedstock raw material.
