Royal Dutch Shel lifted 600,000 barrels of crude oil from Libya’s Zueitina port, its first from the war-torn north African country in five years, two industry sources told Reuters.



“Libya is a significant resource holder and Shell International Trading and Shipping Company Ltd (STASCO) has a history marketing Libyan crudes,” a Shell spokesperson said.
“We welcome new business opportunities with Libya’s National Oil Corporation (NOC). However, we don’t comment on specific trading deals,” the spokesperson added.
