The Libyan National Oil Corporation (NOC) said it had lifted force majeure on Sharara oilfield after the armed group, which was responsible for closing it, left.

NOC added the operating company Acacus received a letter from the commander of oil facilities protection unit saying all those wanted by the law and by the Public Prosecutor have been sent out of the oilfield.

It also added that the NOC was taking extra security measures to secure the personnel in the field and thus creating a safe zone around it.
