London, 25 May 2016:
The National Oil Corporation (NOC) announced yesterday the completion, ‘’ahead of schedule’’, of routine maintenance work at the Wafa field, Sabratha offshore oil platform and the Mellitah complex.
The scheduled maintenance work was announced last week and was due to last for ten days.
The completion will enable the commencement of gas production and pumping to the coastal pipe network supplying the rest of Libya and the export of gas in a ‘’record time’’, the NOC statement said.
The maintenance work has meant that gas could not be pumped to a number of power stations which have had to be supplied with alternative fuels in the maintenance period.
Italian energy giant Eni is the partner of the NOC in the three concessions. [/restrict]
