Libya Selects Gasoline Suppliers

Greek, Russian and Italian firms are to supply Libya with around 2.5 million tonnes of gasoline in 2013, reports Al Bawaba.

The companies named include Greece's Motor Oil Hellas, Italian refiner Saras, and Litasco, the trading arm of Russia's Lukoil.

Two trading sources said Swiss-based trading house Trafigura also had won part of the tender, Reuters reported.

It is yet to be known whether the full volume sought in the initial tender had been awarded, especially as the National Oil Corporation (NOC) has not made public the results so far.

Libya lacks sufficient refining capacity to meet national demand for gasoline.
