Asked if the loss of oil production . . .[restrict]as a result of the armed blockades of Libya’s oilfields would affect the disbursement of the 2013 budget, Finance Minister Abdelkarim Kilani said that inevitably, the loss of oil production would “affect revenues for the budget”.
Speaking at Wednesday’s press conference, Minister Kilani said that Libya was suffering a $130 million per day (LD 200 million) loss as a result of the strikes.
Moreover, he stressed that even if the strikes were ended, “this revenue would not be recovered”. [/restrict]
