Power Cuts Expected All Over Libya


The Chairman of Libya’s National Oil Corporation (NOC), Mustafa Sanalla, said that a delay in approving the necessary budget for the corporation and its companies may obstruct filling the deficit in power stations.

The National Oil Corporation (NOC) said in a statement that Sanalla had met with Wiam Al-Abdali, Chairman of General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) and discussed ways of finding alternative sources to generate power.

The NOC’s chairman suggested setting up alternative energy projects such as solar energy, especially in areas not connected to the gas pipeline network, the statement noted.

The statement added that Sanalla confirmed that the NOC is exerting all its efforts to develop and expand gas fields.
