El Feel, Sharara Oilfields Remain Closed

Reuters reports on Monday that the oilfields of Sharara and El Feel [El Fil, Elephant] remain closed due to protests over salaries and a pipeline blockage.

Tribal elders have been trying for months to resume work at both fields, which could add 400,000 bpd of crude, doubling Libya's current output.

A source at the western Zawiya port linked to the El Sharara oilfield said there were efforts to reopen the 340,000-bpd field but so far there was no breakthrough. An engineer at El Feel also said there was no sign of output resuming.
