Work Resumes at Key Libya Oil Refinery

From Google News

RIPOLI — A Libyan oil executive said on Wednesday work is gradually resuming at a strategic refinery in the western town of Zawiyah, following a disruptive protest by former rebels seeking medical treatment.

“All refinery workers have returned to their posts today,” said Imed bin Kura, acting director of the Zawiyah Oil Company, adding that the distribution of hydrocarbons was proceeding normally.

“The resumption of refining will take two or three days, the time to address technical issues after a four-day halt in operations,” he told AFP.

Bin Kura stressed that there will be no shortages thanks to fuel reserves.

Established in 1976, the Zawiyah refinery has a production capacity of 120,000 barrels per day. It supplies western Libya, accounting for about 70 percent of domestic consumption.
