Increased IS Threat to Oil Sector

By John Lee.

Reuters quotes a Libya analyst as saying that “there is a very real risk” that the Islamic State group (ISIS, ISIL, IS, Daesh) will attack the Brega oil terminal.

Richard Mallinson of Energy Aspects added that militants could also potentially strike the oil fields of Sarir, Messla and Nafoura, which account for about 60 percent of Libya’s current oil output of just under 400,000 barrels per day.
