Zueitina Oil Port Still Closed after Rebel Deal

April 14, 2014

Libya's eastern Zueitina oil port was still not under government control one week after an agreement with a federalist rebel group to immediately reopen it along with the Hariga terminal, a spokesman for National Oil Corp (NOC) said on Monday.
 


The spokesman said that NOC was still waiting for confirmation from the government-run Petroleum Facilities Guard that they were able to establish full control over the complex.
 


NOC was able to lift force majeure on Hariga last week and a tanker is due to load crude there this week. The federalist rebels are still in control of the country's two largest terminals.
