Libya’s Oil and Gas Ministry responds to Tunisian President’s remarks on Bouri field

The Libyan Minister of Oil and Gas Mohammed Oun explained that the case of the Bouri oilfield was decided by a ruling from the International Court of Justice, determining that Libya had the right to the oilfield in a ruling issued in 1982, and Tunisia accepted.

Oun added that what came in the Tunisian president’s statements regarding the Bouri field was a fallacy. He added that maybe Saied meant the continental shelf in which the two countries enjoy a partnership, saying they had established a company for the two countries to exploit the oil and gas resources of the shelf under the name “Joint Oil” in 1988, but it hasn’t started work since.

Tunisian President Kais Saied said that Tunisia only got little benefits from the Bouri oilfield, adding that there was an intention to divide the field into two halves with Libya, but this proposal was retracted due to the situation in Libya.
