Libya’s National Oil Corporation (NOC) announced that the Waha Oil Company, as of January 17, 2021, will start the necessary and necessary maintenance operations for the main crude oil pipeline connecting the Al-Samah-Dhahra fields and from there to the port of Sidra, which has become in a position that cannot continue to operate due to the large number of leaks and its deterioration.
“This is due to the absence of budgets that guarantee the integrity of the foundation’s assets, which we have previously crossed over on many occasions,” as statement by NOC said.
Maintenance teams have been prepared to implement this work on a continuous basis in order to reduce the suspension period, as these works are expected to continue for two weeks.
“The National Oil Corporation is keen to coordinate with the operator, the Waha Oil Company, to reduce the period to between 7-10 days, in an indication of our confidence in the maintenance teams and their technical ability to work in the fast mode,” the statement added.
