The United Arab Emirates (UAE) will host Libyan meeting to discuss the reopening issue of el Sharara oilfield, the North African country’s biggest diplomats and other sources said, Reuters reported.

The UAE is supporting Khalifa Haftar, a key figure and commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA) force, which has taken control of two oilfields in Libya’s south, El Sharara and the nearby El Feel facility.

The LNA requested Libya’s National Oil Company (NOC) to reopen the 315,000 barrels per day (b/d) filed, but NOC rejected the demands as the field is not secured yet.

NOC Chairman Mustafa Sanalla would meet unidentified Libyan players to “discuss security measures necessary to find a solution to the Sharara crisis, that guarantee staff safety, and pave the way for the lifting of force majeure at the field,” NOC said in a statement.
