Libyas acting oil minister Omar Shakmak has announced his resignation citing pressure from acting Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni.
I will abide by the decision because it is not a matter of job but it is Libya. We can serve Libya in different jobs, he told the news agency Reuters.
Mustafa Sanallah, chairman of Libyas state-run National Oil Corporation (NOC), is going to take over the ministerial role, while continuing his other duties, the agency reported, citing NOC spokesman Mohammed el-Hariri.
Omar Shakmak oversaw a rebound in oil exports during his tenure.
On 19 August the NOC announced that exports stood at 562,000 barrels a day (b/d), up from 100,000 b/d in May.
