Oil facilities guards shut down two oil fields to protest not being paid
In spite of an agreement between the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) and the Petroleum Facilities Guard (PFG) it appears that some guards have not been paid and have shut down two oil fields in protest.
|Commander Mohammad Aikhbasha told Reuters that PFG members in a southern brigade had shut down the Gulf field and the Al Wafa which produce around 30,000 barrels a day of light condensate. The GNA had not paid the funds required to maintain the security operations. This is happening in spite of a recent agreement to pay the salaries. Electrical workers also have complained of not receiving their pay.|
