Libya's Sharara oil field reopening after latest shutdown - field workers

BENGHAZI, Libya, Aug 22 (Reuters) - Libya’s Sharara oil field, the country’s largest, was gradually restarting on Tuesday after repeated disruptions causing production shutdowns, two sources at the field said.

Earlier in the day, the National Oil Corporation (NOC) had announced that a three-day pipeline blockade had ended and force majeure had been lifted on loadings of Sharara crude at Zawiya terminal.

But the NOC removed its statement and an oil source said there was a further block on production at the field. (Reporting by Ayman al-Warfalli; Writing by Aidan Lewis. Editing by Jane Merriman)
