Libya’s El Sharara oilfield being closed due to tribal protest

Updated: 08-12-2018 20:22 IST
Libya’s El Sharara oilfield is being closed due to a tribal protest, two engineers and a tribal spokesman said on Saturday.

It was not immediately clear whether output had been stopped but a spokesman for a group of tribesmen demanding more development said they had closed the field located deep in the south.

State oil firm NOC was not available for immediate comment. (Reporting by Ayman al-Warfalli and Ahmed Elumami, writing by Ulf Laessing; editing by Jason Neely)
