NOC evacuates personnel from Ras Lanuf and Sidra due to clashes

National Oil Corporation has evacuated staff from both Sidra and Ras Lanuf terminals for their safety due to armed clashes in the area. The loss in oil production is around 240,000 bpd and a planned tanker entry today to Sidra has been postponed.

The NOC board is currently meeting and following the situation closely. The NOC board has called for individuals or political groups who attempt to capture Libya’s oil installations, blockade production, or attempt to make NOC a bargaining chip to be brought to justice.
