National Oil Corporation Declares Force Majeure on El-Feel Field

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 2/24/2018, Location: Africa

The National Oil Corporation has declared force majeure on the el-Feel field, following the shutdown of the field and the evacuation of its employees.

These actions were taken after members of the Fezzan unit of the Petroleum Facilities Guard threatened workers, entered the administrative offices at the field, and fired weapons in the air.

"The safety and security of workers is a priority," said NOC chairman Mustafa Sanalla.

Mr. Sanalla called on the Ministry of Defence, which supervise the PFG, to solve the security problems at the field, which stem from demands made by the Fezzan PFG for payments and fuel. "The Ministry of Defence is the competent authority to meet their demands.” He added that the NOC will pursue by all available legal means against individuals who threaten its workers.

The area around the el-Feel field is dominated by Tebu, and Mr. Sanalla confirmed that NOC is in contact with community leaders to return stability to the field and resume operations as soon as possible.
