OMV says not in talks with Libyan rebel council

VIENNA (Reuters) - OMV is not holding talks with a council of Libyan rebels trying to overthrow the rule of Muammar Gaddafi, the Austrian energy group said.

“OMV is currently not in talks with the National Transitional Council,” a company spokesman said on Wednesday in an email answer to a query.

He was responding to a Reuters report on Tuesday that Italy’s Eni SpA and other oil companies were in continuous talks with the Libyan rebels about setting up a new National Oil Company, according to an Italian ministerial source.
