Mercenaries at Libyan Oil Installations Concern NOC

Libya’s National Oil Corporation (NOC) issued a statement expressing its deep concern about the continuing militarization of its oil facilities and the heavy presence of foreign mercenaries at various oil fields and ports in the east and south of the country.

The number of mercenaries at the Ras Lanuf petrochemical complex has recently increased, NOC said. Their presence constitutes a threat to the safety of workers and industrial facilities within the complex. There are also a large number of military personnel billeted in worker housing inside the residential area of Ras Lanuf town, in a flagrant violation of the law, privacy and security of worker housing.

In another blatant violation of the law, on July 26 the Petroleum Facilities Guard (PFG) forcibly seized large quantities of jet fuel from fuel storage tanks at 103 Field airstrip belonging to Zueitina Oil Company. The fuel was then taken offsite in two fully laden trucks.
