5+5 Joint Military Commission to discuss the protection of Libya’s Oil
Libya with the largest oil reserves in Africa can produce 1.2 million barrels of crude oil per day
Tuesday, November 16th resumed the discussions between the Joint military Commission of the two warring parties in the Libyan conflict, also known as the “5+5” in regards to the restoration of protective forces of the oil facilities.
The UN special representative Stephanie Williams stated yesterday in a press conference that these discussions concerning the necessary protection of the Libyan oil fields will include representatives from the East and the West and National Petroleum Corporation.
This comes after the conclusion of The Libyan Dialogue Forum in Tunis, after eight days with the failure to appoint an interim government to direct during the period of time leading to the elections set to take place in December of 2021.
Libya with the largest oil reserves in Africa can produce 1.2 million barrels of crude oil per day. But production has fallen below 100,000 barrels a day due to the interruptions by the pro-Haftar forces over the past seven months.
