NOC to Load First Oil in a Year from Es Sider

August 19, 2014

Libya is due to start loading its first crude oil tanker in a year from top port Es Sider on Tuesday following a year-long blockade by eastern federalists, a Libyan oil official and trading sources said.

Germany's Wintershall has also resumed production for the 220,000-barrel-per-day (bpd) Ras Lanuf oil export terminal for the first time since protests ended in July, Ibrahim al-Awami, general manager of inspections and measurement at the oil ministry, told Reuters.

A spokesman for Libya's National Oil Corp. said the country's total oil production had risen to 562,000 bpd, up from 535,000 bpd at the weekend.
