Sources reported earlier on Monday that there had been an agreement in Vienna talks to resume oil exportation from Al-Hariga port in Tobruk by the Tripoli-based National Oil Corporation.

For a couple of weeks or more, Al-Hariga port has been shut and NOC-scheduled ships have been disallowed to load shipment from the port by the Al-Thinni government’s oil officials in Tobruk.

Moreover, last week, the spokesman of the Tripoli-based National Oil Corporation (NOC), Muhammad Al-Harari, revealed that exports of the Tobruk-based Al-Hariga port make up three quarters of the Libyan total oil production and banning oil exportation from that port is going to cause a deficit in the income of the Central Bank of Libya (CBL) and will devalue the Libyan dinar against foreign currencies.
