Libya offers first oil from Ras Lanuf port since reopening

By: | at 11:40 AM

Libya’s National Oil Corp has issued a tender to sell 1 million barrels of Amna crude oil from its major eastern Ras Lanuf oil port, a tender document dated July 16 showed on Wednesday.

The tender for loading July 27-29 is a first attempt to resume oil sales from the port, which had been blockaded by an eastern federalist group for nearly a year. It closes on July 17.

The Ras Lanuf and Es Sider ports, which have a combined capacity of around 500,000 barrels per day, were reopened two weeks ago after a government deal with the rebels.

Earlier on Wednesday, a senior Libyan oil official did not expect any exports from either the Es Sider or Ras Lanuf ports before August.
