The spokesperson of the National Oil Corporation (NOC), Mohammed Al-Harari, has indicated earlier today that Al-Feel oil field has been shut due to a strike carried out by the security guards complaining about the delay of salary payment, pointing out that the NOC paid the salaries of the security forces only.

The NOC managed this year to reopen the field, which, economists say, was producing 100 thousand barrels daily after one of its pipelines had been blocked for months.

Libya’s crude oil production estimations were at less than 600 thousand barrels a day before Al-Feel field was shut.
