Oil shutdown ends with Prime Minister’s decision to increase salaries of PFG members

Members of the Petroleum Facilities Guard (PFG) announced on Sunday evening the end of their shutdown decision of Al-Zawiya Refinery and Mellitah Oil Complex, following a meeting they said they had held with the Prime Minister of the Government of National Unity (GNU), Abdul Hamid Dbeibah, in Tripoli.

The GNU’s Prime Minister on Sunday evening issued a decision to make the salaries of members of the Petroleum Facilities Guard similar to the unified salary bracket for members of the Libyan Army, thus sending a message to the protesters of the PFG that their increased salaries’ demand was answered.

The National Oil Corporation (NOC) said, following the end of the strike and purported shutdown of oil facilities that its designated Chairman of the Board of Directors, Masoud Suleiman, discussed with the Head of the Petroleum Facilities Guard, Abdul Razzaq Al-Khormani, their demands and expressed his “understanding” for those demands, but stressed “the necessity of keeping oil facilities away from any tensions.”

The PFG congratulated on Facebook its members on receiving a government decision to increase their salaries, while Al-Khormani told Libya Alahrar TV that they hadn’t actually closed any oil facilities and all fields and terminals were operating normally.
