Libya protestors shut down another oil refinery

Associated Press

November 14, 2013


Tripoli, Libya, AP —Scores of Libyan protesters on Wednesday shut down an oil refinery in the country’s east to demand jobs they claim were promised for 1,000 people, a state-owned oil company official said.

The closure is the latest disruption to hit the country’s troubled economy in recent months, after militias seized a series of oil and gas terminals, severely cutting production and sapping much-needed state revenue.

The protesters blocked entrances to the offices of the Arabian Gulf Oil Company, a branch of the state-owned National Oil Corporation, in the eastern port city of Tobruk, the official said. They also blocked a road intersection leading to the refinery and forced the administration to halt production of fuel and natural gas destined for local consumption, he added.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press.
Since the summer, militias have closed Tobruk’s main Al-Hariga terminal and four other oil export terminals in the country’s east, demanding semi-autonomous status for the region that produces the majority of Libya’s oil.

Local militias this past week split into two factions, one of which struck an agreement with the government to reopen the terminals within a week. But with another faction unsatisfied, it is unclear whether the ports will remained blocked.

Libya’s heavily armed militias, many made up of former rebels who fought against former dictator Muammar Gaddafi, have proliferated since the 2011 civil war that ended with the dictator’s ouster and death. Since then, they have undermined successive transitional governments and parliament.

With assassinations of public figures and security officials frequent, much of the lawlessness is blamed on the groups. But the government also relies on many of them to provide security in the absence of a functioning police force.

Since the militias began blocking oil production last summer, Libya’s output has plummeted to only a few hundred thousand barrels per day, from a previous 1.4 billion barrels.

The government says the closure costs the state some USD 130 million a day.

Also Wednesday, a separate refinery in the western city of Zawiya, some 30 miles from Tripoli, reopened after protesters shut it down for a day, state news agency LANA said.

Former rebels wounded while fighting Gaddafi’s forces had shut down the site, which LANA said provides the country with 23 percent of its fuel needs.
