Libya to reopen Al-Harriga oil terminal

13 November 2013

Facility expected to be back in operation by 18 November after protests forced its closure

Libya’s National Oil Corporation is expected to reopen its Al-Harriga oil terminal by 18 November after months of turmoil brought about by industrial action by protesters.

The terminal has a capacity of 110,000 barrels a day of crude, but was forced to shut earlier in 2013 due to protests regarding jobs and wages by Libyan nationals.

Now officials in Tripoli have stated that the issues have been resolved and that normal service from the terminal can be resumed.
