Libyan Hariga Port Resumes Oil Exports

Libyan Hariga Port Resumes Oil Exports

Libya’s Port of Hariga saw its first oil tanker, the Greece-flagged Minerva Zoe, after Petroleum Facilities Guards (PFG) terminated their strike over belated salaries, followed by a storm which further delayed the start of operations at the country’s only functioning onshore port exporting oil, Reuters reports.

The Minerva Zoe will load 725,000 barrels of oil destined for Italy, according to the port’s officials.

Inchcape Shipping Services reports that the Port of Zuietina is also gridlocked by industrial action, while the ports of Ras Lanuf (Rasco), Ras Lanuf ‘Harouge’, Benghazi and Es Sider are closed due to armed clashes.

The ports are caught in the midst of a conflict between the internationally recognized government of Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni, controlling the eastern part of the country, and the self-proclaimed government of Libya Dawn, which controls the country’s capital of Tripoli, and has reinstated the old parliament and the ministries.
