NOC Declares Force Majeure at Hariga & Zuetina Ports

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 7/2/2018, Location: Africa

National Oil Corporation has declared force majeure on crude oil loadings at Hariga and Zuetina oil terminals at 1100. This suspension of obligations is in addition to the state of force majeure at the Ras Lanuf and Es Sider terminals. Despite warning from NOC of the consequences of ongoing blockades, Libyan National Army (LNA) General Command has declined to rescind its order that no vessel be allowed to port to receive allocated shipments.

NOC Chairman Eng Mustafa Sanalla commented: “Despite our warning of the consequences and attempts to reason with the LNA General Command, two legitimate allocations were blocked from loading at Hariga and Zuetina this weekend. The storage tanks are full and production will now go offline.”

NOC calls on the LNA General Command to lift the blockade and allow NOC, the only recognised Libyan entity responsible for the exploration, production and export of oil products, under both Libyan and international law, to do its job of providing for the Libyan people. NOC has always advocated for the equitable distribution of national oil revenue.

NOC confirms that total daily production loss amounts to 850,000 bpd of crude, 710 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) of natural gas, and more than 20,000 bpd of condensate. The total daily revenue loss associated with the shutdown is estimated at $67.4 million. The financial loss to the public purse since the attack on Es Sidra and Ras Lanuf on 14 June by Ibrahim Jadhran is more than $650 million.
