The National Oil Corporation (NOC) announced the suspension of work at the gas plant at Zueitina Port on Sunday, for scheduled maintenance operations, during the period from 7 to 14 of October.

The NOC explained that this will affect production at Fareg oil field, as it will lose about 15 thousand barrels of oil and about 70 million cubic feet of gas per day.

It also confirmed that Sirte Oil Company will continue to supply gas to power plants and will compensate for the loss of gas with liquid fuel, noting that they had informed the electricity company of these procedures.
