Eastern Libyan oil export ports have reopened after bad weather forced their shutdown, Libyan state oil company NOC said on Friday.

NOC’s statement said storage tanks at the port of Es Sider could accommodate three days of production. One vessel is being loaded now and another is on its way to the port, NOC said.

The Ras Lanuf storage tanks have another four days of storage capacity, while Hariga port’s storage capacity is 5 days, with a vessel due to arrive on Saturday to load, NOC said.
