August 30, 2020

Two large tankers will shortly be loading crude oil into the Libyan port of Brega in the east of the country for the first time since January under the ceasefire agreement between the government of Tripoli and the rebels and shortly before that, causing the energy crisis the country is going through due to lack of funds to get out of control device.

At high temperatures, the tanker ‘Episkopi’ will load 600,000 barrels for the Viennese operator OMV AG, while the freighter ‘Aegean Myth’ will do the same next Thursday, sources close to the company have informed Bloomberg.

Authorities in eastern Libya, which halted oil exports when they clashed with the United Nations-backed government in Tripoli, promised earlier this month to allow a partial resumption to alleviate blackouts in their region.

The shipments would complement Libya’s initial freight schedule for September, estimated at 1.8 million barrels, from the overseas terminals in Bouri and Farwah.
