Spanish-Owned Oilfield in Libya Resumes Activity after Agreement with Locals

TRIPOLI - Libya's al-Sharara oilfield, which is operated by Spanish global energy company Respol, was back to business as usual on Monday after it was blocked for five days by local militias, who were demanding payment of late wages.

Officials from the Libyan National Oil Company (NOC) explained to EFE that the oilfield, which generates 220,000 barrels of crude daily, began to pump oil again early on Monday.

The oilfield was blocked on Mar. 26 by local groups demanding improvements in living and working conditions.

The pipeline also supplies one of the plants that supply electricity to several villages in western Libya.

During his last visit to Tripoli in April 2016, then Spanish Foreign Minister Jose Garcia Margallo announced that if security conditions allowed it, Repsol would return to work in al-Sharara.
