But NewLead Holdings Ltd. reportdly told Bloomberg News that one of its oil tankers had to leave a Libyan port without its cargo. A company spokeswoman confirmed the vessel has a carrying capacity of more than 73,000 tons but wouldn't specify the nature of the cargo, Bloomberg added.
Transitional leaders have been quoted as saying they expected crude exports to move closer to normal by the end of September.
