Security Situation Surrounding Oil Facilities in Gulf of Sirte

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 7/19/2020, Location: Africa

National Oil Corporation (NOC) is deeply concerned at the serious deterioration in the security situation in areas surrounding oil facilities in the Gulf of Sirte.

Violent Clashes took place over the past 48 hours in the Brega region, only hundreds of meters away from oil tanks, between armed groups called Al-Saiqa and the Petroleum Facilities Guard (PFG), all of whom belong to Khalifa Haftar. They exchanged gunfire using medium-sized, 23mm-caliber firearms and rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs), which reflects the lack of responsibility and military discipline among these armed groups, whose actions jeopardize oil facilities and threaten the safety of NOC workers as well the residents in the surrounding areas.

In light of these serious developments, NOC stresses the importance of evicting Wagner Group, Syrian and Janjaweed mercenaries from its facilities and calls for an end to the militarization of its installations under international supervision and the restructuring of security arrangements in oil regions to be under the protection of a professional, disciplined and independent security force.
