Storage capacity at Zawiya terminal was critically low and production may have to be curbed on Thursday as a result, the NOC said in a statement.
NOC expects to cut production from the Sharara oilfield by half, or 150,000 barrels, starting from 9 am local time (7 am GMT) on Thursday.
An airport source also said the airport in the main eastern city of Benghazi was closed due to heavy rain. (Reporting by Ulf Lessing; writing by Maha El Dahan and Nafisa Eltahir; editing by Jason Neely and Adrian Croft)
