Tripoli based Libyan Prime Minister, Abd Alhamid Aldabaiba, followed up Sunday with the Chairman of the state National Oil Corporation (NOC), Farhat Bengdara, on the executive procedures for operating the Ras Lanuf Industrial Complex and all industrial complexes affiliated with the NOC.
Instructions to activate all NOC factories
Aldabaiba issued his instructions on the necessity of giving priority in the NOC’s plan to activating all its factories and contributing to activating the local production of several petroleum derivatives. He also directed the necessity of operating refineries and increasing their production of petrol, reducing supplies in this item, and building reservoirs that were subjected to severe damage because of wars during previous years, according to high standard specifications.
Bengdara stated that the NOC’s plan is to operate the factories of the Ras Lanuf complex that have been suspended for 12 years, noting that it will operate the ethylene plant according to standard specifications, and work to restart the diesel thermal cracking plant, noting that work will continue to activate the complex by operating all its factories.
NC7 exploration agreement
Bengdara also presented a position on the NOC’s preparations for holding the Libya Energy Conference, which will witness the signing of the NC7 exploration agreement, which will have a major role in increasing Libya’s gas production.
Audit Bureau report
Aldabaiba and Bengdara reviewed the most important observations contained in the Audit Bureau report and the working mechanism to address them, most notably the fuel file, for which a committee with membership and oversight of the Audit Bureau is working to develop appropriate scenarios and provide solutions to address this thorny file.
