Oil exports suspended from Libya’s east, operations halted at 2 key terminals – company

All oil exports from Libya’s east have been suspended after operations were halted at two key export terminals, the National Oil Corporation (NOC) said Monday. The Tripoli-based company “has declared force majeure on crude oil loadings at al-Hariga and Zweitina oil terminals,” the NOC said in a statement. The situation frees parties to a contract from their obligations due to circumstances beyond their control. The ports were among four terminals in Libya’s oil crescent seized last month by military strongman Khalifa Haftar. Exports from the other two were already suspended on June 14.
