Libya's NOC says eastern govt tried to export 650,000 barrels - statement

TRIPOLI, April 23 (Reuters) - Libya’s National Oil Corporation (NOC) said the country’s eastern government attempted to export 650,000 barrels of oil this week, but that workers at the Marsa el-Hariga terminal had refused to load the shipment.

“This had the potential to be a very ugly incident and I am pleased that it has been resolved peacefully without injury to anybody or loss of revenue or damage to the integrity of NOC or the country,” Tripoli-based Chairman Mustafa Sanalla said in a statement released late on Friday.

Libya’s eastern government is one of two rival administrations set up in 2014. Its efforts to sell oil through a parallel oil company have so far been unsuccessful. (Writing by Aidan Lewis; Editing by Toby Chopra)
