Repsol Libya to Provide State With DNA Gear to Identify Bodies

Oct. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Repsol Libya, a venture of Madrid-based Repsol SA, will provide DNA-testing equipment as a contribution to social welfare in the North African country, General Manager Felix Castañeda said.

The oil company signed a memorandum of understanding in September with Libya’s Ministry for the Affairs of the Families of the Martyrs and Missing Persons to build a laboratory and train staff, he said in a news release. The facility will be completed by September 2013, Castaneda said.

Repsol operates in two areas of Libya, the holder of the biggest oil reserves in Africa. Libya is pumping crude at near the same level it reached prior to the conflict that ousted leader Muammar Qaddafi last year, Oil Minister Abdul-Rahman Ben Yezza said Sept. 24 in Tripoli. The country produced 1.475 million barrels a day of oil in September, data collected by Bloomberg show.
