National Oil Company’s (NOC) total oil production inside Libya is down to 95,077 barrels per day (bpd) as of April 28, according to a press release.
The forced restriction of oil and gas production has caused financial losses in excess of $4.3 billion since January 2020. The public treasury has incurred additional fees by importing external oil to cover domestic shortages, increasing the financial burden on the fuel budget, the statement said .
According to the statement, NOC is providing fuels to people in the eastern regions via different ports across the coastline. Tobruk and the rest of the eastern region are being supplied by NOC directly from Benghazi. Tripoli is being supplied directly through its port, while other cities in the western and mountain regions are receiving fuel from the Zawiya storage facilities.
