Oil shipments resume from eastern oil port of Zuwetina
Last Thursday an oil tanker took on the first load of crude for export from the Libyan port of Zuwetina since late last year. The tanker, the Ionic Anassa loaded 800,000 barrels of crude to be exported to China.
|Zuwetina is one of several ports that opened last month after being seized by Marshal Haftar's forces associated with the House of Representatives Government (HoR), a rival to the UN-supported Government of National Accord (GNA). However, Haftar has allowed oil to be exported by the National Oil Company (NOC) located in Tripoli and associated with the GNA.|
