Libya’s NOC confirms international talks on resuming oil output

  • Libya’s National Oil Corporation (NOC) hopes oil production will resume after international talks to end a blockade by eastern-based forces in the civil war, which has stopped almost all energy exports for six months, it said on Monday.
  • Libya has been split since 2014 between rival factions in Tripoli, home to the internationally recognized Government of National Accord (GNA), and in the east, where Khalifa Haftar’s Libyan National Army (LNA) holds sway.
  • After the GNA’s gains this month, NOC attempted to reopen Sharara and El Feel oil fields, before armed groups stopped it.
