Libya declares force majeure at two key oil export ports

Libya declared force majeure at Ras Lanuf and Es Sidr over the weekend after fighting in and around both key oil export ports intensified over the past week.

Libya’s National Oil Corporation has reported significant damage to at least one storage tank and has evacuated all its staff from both ports amid severe fighting between factions in the civil war-torn North African country.
