The Minister of Oil and Gas in the Government of National Unity, Mohammed Aoun, said that Libya is currently losing more than 1,100,000 barrels per day (bpd) of oil production due to the closures imposed on major export fields and ports.

Aoun added that most of the oil fields are closed, except for the Hamada field and the Mellitah complex, while the Al-Wafa field continues operations from time to time.

He also indicated that two tankers have docked at the ports of Sidra and Brega to reduce gas condensate, after two production stations in the east of the country were suspended due to gas cessation.

“The people and notables assured the committee assigned by the ministry that the closure was not in their hands, and it appears that the closure instructions were issued by an official body, the Petroleum Facilities Guard in the closure areas”, Aoun said.
