Libyan oilfields to reopen after deal between Dbeibeh and PFG, Italian press reports

Production in the Libyan oilfields Wafa, El Feel, Sharara and Hamada would be restored after Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh met with representatives of a faction of the Petroleum Facilities Guard (PFG) which is active in the west of the country, Italian news agency Nova reports.

Citing unnamed “Libyan sources”, Nova reported that the meeting between Dbeibeh and PFG representatives took place on Sunday.

According to Nova, the outcome of the meeting “satisfied the requests” of the PFG responsible for the recent closure of four of the country’s most vital oilfields.

However, Nova reported that “it is currently unclear what the Dbeibeh government’s concessions are to the oil guards.”
