The Chairman of the National Oil Corporation (NOC) Farhat Bengdara, confirmed that the NOC had been working on operating the factories of the Ras Lanuf complex, after a 12-year hiatus.

Bengdara's remarks came during a meeting with the Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibah on Sunday to follow up on the executive procedures for operating the Ras Lanuf Industrial Complex and all other NOC industrial complexes.

Bengdara indicated that the ethylene plant will be operated according to standard specifications, and that work will be done to restart the diesel thermal cracking plant.

Bengdara also presented his views on the NOC's preparations for holding the Libyan Energy Conference, which will witness the signing of the NC7 exploration agreement, which will have a major role in increasing Libya’s gas production.

Dbeibah issued his instructions on the necessity of giving priority in the NOC's plan to activating all its factories, and contributing to activating the local production of a number of petroleum derivatives. 

He also directed the necessity of operating refineries and increasing their production of gasoline, reducing supplies, and rebuilding tanks that were subjected to severe damage as a result of wars. 

Dbeibah and Bengdara reviewed the most important observations contained in the Audit Bureau report and the working mechanism to address them, especially the fuel file, on which a committee with membership and oversight of the Audit Bureau is working in order to develop appropriate framework and provide solutions.
