Libya complains about Qatar's oil production aid in rebel-held sites

CAIRO — Libya has protested Qatar's assistance in exporting crude oil from areas held by the opposition to Col. Moammar Gadhafi.


Libya has raised objections to Qatar's marketing of rebel-held oil production facilities to OPEC.

The state-owned Libyan National Oil Corp. cited the operation of such fields as Misla, Nafoura and Sarir, with a total production capacity of 400,000 barrels per day.

"This has been very unfortunate," NOC chairman Shukri Ghanem said.

So far, Qatar has helped market one million barrels of oil for the National Transitional Council and delivered for shipments of petroleum to Benghazi. But Gadhafi forces have bombed and damaged all of the oil fields held by the rebels.
