Sharara Oilfield Closed

Production at Sharara oilfield has reportedly been stopped again, this time according to Libya Herald by Petroleum Facilities’ Guards (PFG) loyal to Obari’s Supreme Council of Revolutionaries.

The oilfield was open for only four days following the withdrawal of Tuareg protestors from Sharara just over one week ago. The PFG forces, with indirect links to the protestors, resumed the blockade over unpaid salaries on Thursday.

The previous embargo imposed by Tuareg demonstrators was due to be suspended for two weeks as a show of good faith while authorities addressed their demands.

A leading member of the Sharara protestors, Mahmoud Al-Ansari, told the Libya Herald:

The number of protesters with differing demands is increasing on a daily basis and we are all yet to see results and an end to government negligence.
