A total of 61,761 barrels of propane gas have been shipped to Italy from Libya’s Zueitina Port, the country’s National Oil Corporation (NOC) said on May 20.

As informed, the shipment is the first of its kind to Italy since the Zueitina gas plant in eastern Libya ceased operation four years ago.

The cargo was transported on board the Gaz Concord, according to NOC. The 9,102 cbm LPG tanker, operated by Greek Naftomar Shipping and Trading, departed Zueitina on May 17, VesselsValue’s data shows.

The gas plant at Zueitina Port resumed operation in January this year. It had been closed due to a shortage of gas supplies and blockades in the region.
