Libyan PM says new NOC board appointed by consensus not political deals

The Libyan Prime Minister, Abdul Hamid Dbeibah, said the decision to replace the National Oil Corporation (NOC) board of directors was through negotiations and consensus of all parties not via a political deal or foreign intervention.

Dbeibah’s statement came in the first meeting of the newly appointed board of directors of the NOC, headed by Farhat Bengdara, at its headquarters in Tripoli.

The Libyan Prime Minister said those who threaten to use violence and arms to regain their powerful positions will only be faced by force, referring to Mustafa Sanalla who said he remained the legitimate NOC chairman and Dbeibah’s decisions are null and void.

Dbeibah indicated that the entry of all major companies to the development of the oil sector should be facilitated, in addition, he said the countries that invest in Libya’s oil sector are “friend countries”.
