Germany pushes to end Libya’s oil blockade

In a statement, Libya’s National Oil Corporation (NOC) stated, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas had underscored the importance to bring about an immediate end to the blockade of oil facilities in Libya.

NOC chairman Mustafa Sanalla met Maas in Tripoli wherein they discussed the economic and environmental impact of the blockade, said the NOC in a statement.

Maas stressed “the need for immediate end to the blockade and Germany’s support for NOC’s efforts to restore production,” said the statement.

On January 2018, factions loyal to Khalifa Haftar began a blockade of oil terminals and fields on and since then they have gradually squeezed the national output to less than 100,000 barrels per day (bpd) from around 1.2 million bpd.
