The Libyan state-owned General National Maritime Transport Company (GNMTC) has denied that its tankers went to Ras Lanuf to upload oil.
The company’s General Manager, Khaled Twati, told Libya Herald that it was trying to keep out of the current political conflict:
“We are simply an ordinary commercial company trying to find clients to hire our tankers. But now we are suffering because our tanker crews are afraid to sail to many Libyan ports.”
The GNMTC has 25 tankers, which are mainly hired to the National Oil Corporation (NOC) to transport Libyan oil.
