The National Oil Corporation (NOC) announced the state of force majeure on crude oil loadings from Mellitah Oil Company, following the closure of the El Feel oil field last week, Reuters quoted learned sources as saying.

El Feel oil field, which has a capacity of 73 thousand barrels per day, contributes to the Mellitah and Al Wafa oil fields production.

The NOC decided to halt operations at the El Feel field after a valve of a pipeline connecting Mellitah exporting station was cut off.
