Italian energy giant Eni is studying the possibility of building a solar power plant to provide energy for the city of Rabiana as an entrance to the establishment of this type of station in southern Libya, the Director of the Sustainable Development Department at the National Oil Corporation (NOC), Mokhtar Abdel Dayem has said.

A statement by the NOC indicated that its president, Mustafa Sanalla, held a meeting with dignitaries and activists from the municipality of Rabiana, located in the Fezzan province, last Thursday to discuss the project details.

Rabiana is a desert town located in the southeast of the country, some 1,700 km from Tripoli.
