Sidra oil terminal resumes exports after recent clashes
The Libyan key oil terminal in eastern Libya, Sidra, has resumed oil exportation as a Greece-flagged oil tanker (Dimitrious) docked at the terminal Saturday.
The oil tanker will be loaded with 630.000 barrels of crude oil and head to China.
The Libyan National Oil Corporation said last week that Libya’s oil output had increased and hit 700.000 barrels per day after the oil exports had resumed in Sidra and Ras Lanuf oil terminals.
The oil terminals saw fierce fighting at the beginning of this month between 4-14. The fighting was between force loyal to Operation Dignity, led by Khalifa Haftar, and others from the Benghazi Defence Brigades, backed up by groups from the Defence Ministry of the Government of National Accord.
