The General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) confirmed on Sunday that it had lost more than 300 megawatts of productive capacities produced by the power plants in Zueitina and North Benghazi, after closing the gas fields in the eastern line feeding the two plants.

This comes after two days of the closure of oil ports and the halting of production from oil wells in the eastern parts of the country.

The company explained on Facebook that if gas flows continue to drop, the company will lose production capacities of more than 300 megawatts.

"This would have negative effects on the power grid and would increase hours of load shedding," the GECOL explained.
