The Minister of Oil and Gas, Muhammad Aoun, paid a visit to the General Gas Transmission and Distribution Company (Gasly) on Monday after the latter transferred its affiliation to the ministry.
A statement by the Oil Ministry said that minister Aoun got an insight into the company's major projects through a visual presentation and discussed mechanisms for implementing and reviving the "City Gas" project again.
Addressing international companies, Aoun said there are still vast areas in Libya waiting to be explored, as he urged them to come and invest in oil and gas.
The minister also checked out the lines established by the company to feed power plants such as the Sarir electric station.
He pledged to support the company to overcome the difficulties hindering the finalization of the stalled projects and praised its efforts "despite the scarcity of budgets."
