Panic Buying on Rumours of Refinery Closure

Rumours that production at the Zawia refinery had stopped due to the ongoing disruption at oil facilities has resulted in massive queues outside petrol stations across Tripoli.

But a media spokesman for the refinery has told the Libya Herald that the rumours are unfounded and there is no problem at the refinery.

Mohammed Othman said:

"There is no reason to panic ... The refinery is working normally. It is producing 100 percent. ... There are no plans to stop. It’s just rumours."
