Zueitina oil terminal’s gas factory has reopened after four years of closure since June 2013.

The factory resumed work after weeks-long repairing had been completed last Saturday. The repairing works were done by Libyan a maintenance team, a source from the terminal said.

The factory which has four tanks will receive 8000 gas barrels from Abu Al-Tefel field of Millita oil and gas company, the source added, saying it will be producing the local market’s needed cooking gas.

Last Friday, smoke billowed the sky above the oil terminal and left people in panic in Ajdabia and other area nearby the terminal, but later the smoke sources was explained as coming from testing the gas pipelines.

The factory used to produce in 2013 about 28.000 bpd with 12.000 of them used in C5 and the rest in cooking gas production.
