The Head of the Libyan Gas and Oil Council, Khalid Ben Othman, denied that Defend Benghazi Brigades had vandalized any of the oil facilities after taking them over, saying they passed by them and left them intact. He added that oil production was not affected by the clashes and is still between 730 thousand and 750 thousand barrels per day as before.
