Chairman of the Tripoli-based Libyan National Oil Corporation (NOC) Mustafa Sanalla spoke out against a new attempt he claimed was being made to sell oil outside the monopoly of the NOC.
|The NOC put out a statement saying it knows of illegal offers to sell oil at a large discount to official selling prices. The NOC said that if they succeeded Libya would be out hundreds of millions of dollars in lost revenue. The statement gave no details as to who was offering the contract but warned shipping companies such contracts were illegal. The NOC statement cautioned about the contracts: “Entering into them may lead to serious legal consequences and financial losses. NOC does not accept responsibly or liability whatsoever for any loss or damage incurred as the result of entering into contracts with unauthorised individuals.”|
