US welcomes reopening of Libya’s largest oilfield

The US Embassy in Libya on Sunday welcomed the reopening of Sharara oilfield, the largest in Libya, after it was closed by tribal leaders in January.

“The Embassy welcomes the announcement by the National Oil Corporation (NOC) that it is resuming production at the critical Sharara oil field, a significant step forward as the NOC fulfils its crucial and apolitical mandate to promote the interests of all Libyans,” the embassy said in a statement.

“The needless, five-month long shutdown of Libya’s energy sector and the targeting of NOC personnel and facilities must end on a nationwide basis,” said the statement.

“Now is the time for all responsible parties to reject attempts to militarise the energy sector, divide Libya’s economic institutions, and subjugate critical infrastructure to foreign interests,” it said
