Libya’s state oil company plans to start exporting again “soon” from two of the country’s biggest oil ports after eastern military commander Khalifa Haftar retook control of the terminals following clashes with a rival military force.

Mustafa Sanalla, chairman of the National Oil Corp., said Thursday in an interview in Vienna that he expects the ports of Es Sider and Ras Lanuf to be operating normally in less than a week. Es Sider is Libya’s biggest oil export terminal, and Ras Lanuf its third-largest.
