NOC Chief and French officials call for lifting oil blockade

The Chairman of the National Oil Corporation (NOC) Mustafa Sanalla met Christophe Farnaud, Head of North Africa and Middle East Department at the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs and other officials, including French special envoy to Libya, Frederic Desagneaux, in Paris, France.

The NOC chief and French officials discussed the current situation and the dangerous consequences of blockading Libya’s oil and gas facilities.

“The embassy echoed NOC calls for the unity and the independence of NOC, lifting of the blockades, and more transparency in distribution of oil revenues.” The NOC said in a statement.

NOC added that while in Paris, Sanalla also met with Patrick Pouyanné, the Chief Executive Officer of international partner Total as they discussed the significant impact of the current blockades, including their lasting effects on operations and production volumes, as well as the resulting loss of revenues for Libya.
