Benghazi, 8 November 2015:
Workers at the liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant in Brega have gone on strike demanding . . .[restrict]salaries be paid and an end to delays in future.
The strike threatens to affect electricity production in the east as well as supplies of cooking gas, already in short supply.
“This suspension will result in a halt to natural gas supplies from gas fields and will result in the company failing to meet it obligations to provide gas for power plants and the supply of cooking gas to the city of New Brega”, an official at the plant warned,according to the Beida-based Libyan news agency LANA.
The plant, run by the Sirte Oil and Gas Company and with a production capacity of some 900 million cubic metres a year, provides gas to Benghazi North power station, the largest electricity producer in the east of the country. [/restrict]
