London, 8 October 2019:

Libya’s state National Oil Corporation (NOC) announced on Sunday that it is closing the gas plant at the port of Zueitina for scheduled maintenance from October 7-14, 2019.

It said that production at the Faregh oil field will be suspended during this period, resulting in about 15,000 barrels of oil per day and about 70 million cubic feet of gas per day being taken offline.

However, it added that Sirte Oil Company will continue to supply natural gas to power plants and that reductions in gas supply will be compensated with liquid fuel.

It reported that the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) had been informed of these procedures. source
