Zawiya Oil Refinery halts operations due to lack of crude supplies

February 11, 2020

Zawiya Oil Refining Company halted its oil refining operations on Sunday due to the lack of crude supplies.

A source from the company told Reuters that two refining units, each with a capacity of 60,000 barrels, have stopped working.

The National Oil Corporation (NOC) has disclosed that output has fallen from 1.2 million barrels per day to less than 200 thousand barrels, due to the closure of oil facilities by Haftar's militias in mid-January, dragging down production to its lowest level since August 2011.
