Libya’s Arabian Gulf Oil Company (AGOCO) has halted production at the Sarir field after a protest by oil-facility guards shut the eastern port of Hariga.
A spokesman for the company told Bloomberg that production at the 100,000-barrel-a-day field was stopped after oil exports were halted.
A unit of the Petroleum Facilities Guard (PFG) is holding a sit-in over delayed salaries.
Four other ports, accounting for about 860,000 barrels a day of exporting capacity, were already shut as a result of political turmoil and fighting.
