The Fargh field of the Waha Oil Company has restarted pumping gas to the Sarir power station, the National Oil Corporation announced on Saturday. 

The company said the operation would put the Sarir plant back in service and help reduce the massive power cuts experienced countrywide.

"This comes at a time when crude production is approaching one million barrels per day (bpd), with work continuing to reach 1.2 million bpd during the next period," the NOC noted.

Last month, the former Chairman of the state-run electricity company, Wiam Al-Abdali, warned that the power crisis would aggravate and called for urgent solutions to provide the company's needs of natural gas.
