Libya's eastern Zueitina oil port will receive late on Thursday its first tanker of crude since reopening after nearly ten months due to protests, state-run National Oil Corp (NOC) said.

The tanker would load one million barrels of crude, NOC spokesman Mohammed El Harari said. According to shipping sources, Austria's OMV had chartered the Ottoman Tenacity.

A second tanker would load crude on May 5 and a third one after that, Harari said.

NOC lifted force majeure on the port on April 28 following a recent deal with federalist protesters to reopen the smallest two of four blocked eastern ports.
