Tripoli, 17 November 2014:
Production has resumed at Hariga Oil terminal in Tobruk on Thursday after Petroleum Facility Guard (PFG) members . . .[restrict]called off their brief strike at the port.
According to Arabian Gulf Oil Company (AGOCO) spokesperson Omaran Al-Zuwai, the problem of unpaid salaries has been resolved and plans have been made of PFG members to receive their back pay.
The PFG closed the terminal on 8 November in protest at the unpaid salaries.
Zuwai has confirmed that operations at the terminal are now back up and running.
“The Hariga Terminal resumed exports on Thursday when an oil tanker with a capacity of 400 thousand barrels departed for Greece.”
Four more oil tankers are expected to leave Hariga next week, with reserves amounting to some two million barrels of crude at the Hariga tank farm.
The Hariga Oil Port, which is operated by the state-owned AGOCO, is fed into by the Sarir and Messla oilfields in southeastern Libya. [/restrict]
