An oil tanker is due to load 1 million barrels of crude on Tuesday from Libya's recently reopened Hariga port, its first export shipment after a deal to end months of closures at its key terminals, the National Oil Corp. (NOC) said.

The tanker is due to take its load to Italy, the NOC quoted an oil official as saying in a statement on its website.

NOC was able to lift force majeure on Hariga last week. Federalist rebels are still in control of the OPEC exporter's two largest terminals.
