Libya’s state oil company National Oil Corp (NOC) said on Wednesday it had postponed a conference in the eastern city of Benghazi for 15 days following an attack on its Tripoli headquarters last month.

The three-day conference, to be held in Libya’s second-largest city, is aimed at allowing local and foreign oil and gas companies to discuss the sector’s development.

“The date was changed because of the circumstances that the (NOC) was exposed to recently, which caused the delay in the completion of some important preparations and equipment related to the event,” NOC said in a statement.

The conference will be held from Oct. 24 to 26, two weeks later than planned, NOC said.
