An official at the National Oil Corporation (NOC), said that the Zuwetina oil port is preparing to export 1.63 million barrels of crude oil.

The official added that the port will receive two oil tankers, the first of which is called ‘OLIB’, due to initially ship a quantity of 630 thousand barrels, expected to arrive on October 3.

Immediately following this delivery, a delivery is expected to enter Episkopi, east of Paphos to deliver one million barrels of crude oil.

The NOC said that this shipment is the first from the port of Zuwetina, after the lifting of the status of force majeure on it.
