The Libyan National Oil Corporation (NOC) confirmed Tuesday a drop in production as a result of the blockade of ports and pipelines to 123,537 bpd, with losses exceeding 1 billion dollars – $1,736,396,208.
NOC said in a statement that it renews its call for all blockades to be lifted to allow the corporation to resume production immediately, for the sake of Libya and its people.
”Vital facilities in Tripoli and some surrounding areas, as well as in southern regions, are still facing supply shortages due to the security situation.” NOC added.
It said that fuel vessels have evacuated urgently from Tripoli port today after projectiles struck meters away from a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) tanker discharging in the port.
“NOC continues to supply hydrocarbons to the Central and Eastern regions in sufficient quantities to meet the transport and domestic needs of citizens.” The statement reads.
As part of its commitment to transparency, NOC said it will continue to publish data on fuel stocks in the Central, Eastern and Southern regions as well as details of shipments, to inform citizens of fuel availability in their area.
