Libya Sends Representative to Gas Exporting Countries Forum

June 2 (Bloomberg) -- Libya sent Mosbah Ali Matoug, a member of the management committee of Tripoli-based National Oil Corp., to a one-day meeting of the Gas Exporting Countries Forum in Cairo.

Shokri Ghanem, the state-run company’s former chairman, was supposed to have attended the meeting until he defected to the side of Libyan rebels, an Egyptian oil ministry official said earlier today. The official declined to be identified because of government policy.

No representative from Qatar, which has provided financial and diplomatic support to the rebels, was present at the start of the meeting.

The forum, an 11-nation group that controls two-thirds of the world’s proven natural gas reserves, is gathered today in the Egyptian capital.
