Workers at the Hamada oil field have restarted operations, and production will be pumped to the Zawiya refinery, said the Arabian Gulf Oil Company on Saturday.

The company clarified in a statement that production was resumed since Friday, following the NOC's decision to lift the force majeure during the last few days.

The NOC announced last week the lifting of the force majeure on fields free from foreign mercenaries and armed groups, as it deemed them unsafe to the workers and facilities.
