The Prime Minister of the Government of National Unity, Abdul Hamid Dbeibah, instructed the State Properties Authority to start the procedures for handing over the new site to the Brega Oil Marketing Company so it starts implementing a project to build new tanks to ensure the sustainability of fuel availability, in light of the suffering of the Brega Company due to the lack of tanks for more than 8 years, which led to shortages from time to time.

Dbeibah stressed during a meeting held Tuesday at the headquarters of the National Oil Corporation (NOC) the need to start settling obligations between the Ministry of Finance and Brega Company, in order to straighten the company’s situation, reiterating the need to monitor the organization of the fuel file in terms of the relationship between Brega Company and distribution companies, so that the contractual relationship is tackled in all aspects.

The Chairman of the NOC, Farhat Bengdara, welcomed Dbiebah's quick response to the call for the meeting, which was attended by the ministers of oil and gas, economy, trade and finance, in addition to the director of the Brega Oil Marketing Company, underlining the need to find the necessary solutions to ensure the stability of the operations of supplying fuel to all Libyan cities.

According to the NOC, the meeting concluded with an agreement on a number of procedural steps that contribute to the stability of the company and enhance its ability to get its tasks done.

Meanwhile, a number of the Brega company’s tanks in the Airport Road warehouse were completely burned as a result of the violent clashes that took place in the area in the summer of 2014, while several other tanks were damaged as a result of the sporadic clashes, the latest of which was the war on Tripoli in 2019.
