Key Essidra oil terminal operating fully, NOC says

National Oil Corporation

The National Oil Corporation (NOC) said a Norwegian oil firm is going to ship 80 thousand tonnes of crude oil onboard C-Music oil vessel from Essidra oil terminal, a source reported Thursday.

The source added that the another oil vessel will ship another oil load from the terminal before the end of this year.

Essidra oil terminal was shut in 2014 by Ibrahim Jodran-led Petroleum Facilities Guard and was reopened last September after the Operation Dignity forces, led by Khalifa Haftar, took control of the oil crescent and reopened all terminals and placed them under the NOC’s control.

However, oil exportation has just been resumed in Essidra as it was under round-the-clock maintenance.
