On Wednesday Libya’s oil exports have been restored for the first time since November, 2014.  The tanker Seadelta, carrying 776 thousand barrels of “black gold”, has gone in the direction of Italy under the Maltese flag from the port of Ras Lanuf in the east coast. The port was earlier captured by the Libyan national army. The announcement of this event has come from the pan-Arab TV channel “Al Arabiya”.

The marine terminal has restored the export activity due to the end of the military conflict between the separatist Libyan national army under General Khalifa Haftar and military forces that are loyal to the government of the national consensus.

The offensive, which was begun by the Libyan National Army for more than 10 days ago, allowed Khalif Haftar to capture and keep control of the main export ports in the area within three days. This forced the pro-government troops to retreat. It should be reminded that the troops were guarding the port facilities that had not been used for two years because of the civil war.

Earlier it was planned that the tanker Seadelta would leave the port of Ras Lanuf on Sunday. But the tanker had to stand on the outer harbor because of the new military clashes and its loading was shifted.
