London, 28 June 2021:
The NOC announced yesterday that its net revenues during May 2021 from the sales of crude oil, gas, condensates, oil products and petrochemicals amounted to record levels due to huge demand and an increase in international prices.
Total net revenues from oil sales in US dollars amounted to 1,389,927,624.99 US dollars, and 5,824,254.83 euros.
Crude oil sales reached the sum of 1,322,362,503.68 US dollars, followed by gas and condensates which amounted to 53,055,556.55 US dollars.

Ras Lanuf Company will start selling polyethylene to local market
We also announce that Ras Lanuf Company will start procedures for selling polyethylene to the local market, which will lead to alleviating the burdens of importing this substance in hard currency. Furthermore, polyethylene will be provided in the easiest manners to the private sector specialized in plastic industries.
May’s revenues do not include royalties and taxes. There are 194,736,598.07 million US dollars of May’s revenues that will be shown in June’s outcome, due to the fact that their payment due date coincided with a holiday in the beginning of June, which necessitates documenting them on the date of their payment.
Two units at Zawia refinery resumed operations
The NOC also revealed that Zawia Refinery has resumed its operations in full capacity at the two units, with a daily refining capacity exceeding to 100,000 barrels p/d. This will ease the burden of importing fuels, as well as the crude oil deliveries to the Ubari power station which will be charged to the General Electricity Company, the value of which was estimated in May at 18,676,528.13 US dollars.
It also reported that Mellitah Company was also supplied with quantities of crude oil for generating electricity, value at 2,630,442.23 US dollars charged to the company to be settled later.
