Libya’s Az Zawiya Refinery Halts Operations on Protests, TV Says

Nov. 5 (Bloomberg) -- Libya’s Az Zawiya refinery halted processing after protesters stopped fuel trucks from loading at the 120,000 barrel-a-day plant near the capital Tripoli, state-run Libya TV reported.

The refinery, run by the government-owned National Oil Corp., suspended fuel deliveries on Nov. 3, according to the broadcast, which didn’t give an estimated date for operations to resume. The protesters are mostly injured veterans of the uprising against former leader Muammar Qaddafi and are seeking compensation and medical treatment from the government.
