Wafa Gas Oil and Gas Field Reopens
According to Reuters, Libya’s National Oil Corporation (NOC) has lifted force majeure on production from the Wafa field after an armed group reopened oil and gas pipelines leading to the Mellitah terminal.
Production of oil, gas and condensates had been interrupted at Wafa by a shutdown that started on March 26 near the town of Nalut. Wafa is operated by Mellitah Oil Co, a joint venture between NOC and Italy’s ENI. The reopening would allow Mellitah to restore production of about 450 million cubic feet of gas, 9,000 barrels per day (bpd) of oil, and 7,500 bpd of condensate, NOC said.
Earlier on Wednesday, an engineer at the Al-Rwais power plant that gets gas from Wafa said the gas pipeline had reopened, and a source at Nalut municipality told Reuters two pipelines had been reopened after local elders negotiated an accord with the armed group.
