Local Militia, Demonstrators Capture Libya’s Largest Oil Field (Map Update)

Donate

A local unit of the Petroleum Facilities Guards (PFG) and demonstrators have captured Libya’s largest oil field – al-Sharara oilfield. Libya’s National Oil Corporation (NOC) said the “disgraceful” move could cost the national economy $32.5 million daily but insisted production had not stopped despite the complicated security situation there. The situation on the ground remains unclear because conflicting statements and rumors appear on a constant basis.

However, it appears to be that local forces seized the field in order to demand the improvement of social services in the area, which is mostly abandoned by the Western-backed Libyan government that pretends that it controls the area.
