CAIRO, Dec 10 (Reuters) - Libya’s National Oil Corporation (NOC) said on Tuesday that Russia’s Tatneft had resumed exploration activities in Hamada area last week.
Tatneft’s seismic survey program for a 200 square km area was suspended in 2014.
The statement cited NOC Chairman, Mustafa Sanalla, as saying: “We are very pleased with Tatneft’s resumption of its activities at Ghadames Basin. This enhances confidence in Libya’s oil and gas sector and serves the Libyan economy.”
