Pipeline blockade hit gas supplies at Libya's Wafa field September 7-9: NOC

TUNIS (Reuters) - The closure of a valve on a gas pipeline by unknown saboteurs last week reduced production at Libya’s Wafa field, affecting supplies for local power generation and export, the National Oil Corporation (NOC) said on Monday.

The closure lasted for about 30 hours between Thursday and Saturday and resulted in the loss of about 310 million cubic feet of gas, nearly 12,000 barrels of condensate, and some $2.17 million of export revenue, the NOC said in a statement.
