Loading resumes at Ras Lanuf

Cairo: Libya has loaded the first oil from the port of Ras Lanuf after more than a year’s closure from rebels occupying the eastern Libyan terminal.

A tanker has loaded 680,000 barrels and will head to Italy later today.

Ras Lanuf is one of four ports in eastern Libya seized by rebels a year ago, all of which have since been returned to government control.  [13/08/14]
