Turkey, Libya may contract international firms to search for hydrocarbons in eastern Med

ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey and Libya could work with international companies to search for oil and gas in the eastern Mediterranean, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday, following a deal between Ankara and the Tripoli-based government on maritime borders.

In November, Libya’s internationally recognized government in Tripoli and Turkey clinched a deal on drilling for natural gas, in a step Ankara said aimed to defend its rights in the region.
