Friday, September 16, 2011

According to a report on www.UPI.com, an oil tanker left the Libyan port of Mellitah and was headed to Cyprus without loading its cargo.
With Libya now in the hands of a new government, oil companies are coming in with high expectations, as the country was a major oil-producing nation before the war.
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.
