By Sami Zaptia.
London, 6 December 2019:
Libya’s state National Oil Corporation (NOC) confirmed yesterday that production at El Feel oil field has been interrupted as a result of what it called an ‘‘unlawful valve closure’’. The valve closure occurred on the export pipeline from the inland El Feel field to the coastal Mellitah processing complex.
NOC Chairman, Eng. Mustafa Sanalla said: “This is another criminal attempt to disturb the work of NOC and it harms the Libyan economy. We call on the local leaders and authorities in the area to identify the offenders. NOC will notify the public prosecutor, and will press for those responsible for this damaging and unlawful act to be held to account.”
