Tobruk, 27 April 2015:
A Greek tanker has loaded 700,000 barrels . . .[restrict]of crude oil at Tobruk’s Hariga port Thursday, the first to take on a cargo after guards forced the closure of the port.
Two tankers were turned away from the port earlier in the week after the oil export terminal was forced to shut down by striking guards who were demanding payment of their salaries.
The guards’ salaries are, said a source who wished to not be named, in Tripoli and scheduled to be transferred to the guards’ bank accounts in Tobruk in the next few days.
Hariga port engineer Rajab Sahnoun told the Libya Herald that during the strike the Arabian Gulf Oil Company (AGOCO) reduced production from 250 thousand barrels a day to 150,000 barrels a day, but that production should increase again now.
