Reuters

BENGHAZI, Libya, July 20 (Reuters) – Production at the Sarir oil field in eastern Libya will remain suspended despite the reopening of the Hariga export terminal following a pay dispute, a spokesman said on Wednesday.

Omran al-Zwai, spokesman for eastern Libya's state oil firm AGOCO, said production at the field, which previously had an output of 100,000 barrels per day (bpd), would be suspended until AGOCO received money for equipment and to pay debts.
