The Oil Drilling and Engineering Administration in Sirte Oil Company managed to contain the oil and gas spill that occurred in one of its oil wells.

The attempts to stop the leakage in (C245) well have continued for two months and were carried out by the company workers in coordination with the National Drilling Company and a service company. The national workers succeeded in fixing the well’s leakage areas sparing the company a material loss of about four million Libyan dinars, let alone its bad effects on the environment.

The technical process of containing the well’s spill, which is located in Zolten field 170 km to the south of Brega Port, is considered very intricate owing to the shortage of the necessary equipment and the unstable security situation in the country.
