Faraj Al-Hassi, told Reuters he had ordered ports to prevent the entry of any tanker not authorised by his office.

Officials at Libya’s Zueitina oil terminal have not authorised a tanker contracted by Tripoli-based National Oil Corporation (NOC) to load its contacted shipment, while loading was also blocked at Hariga terminal.

Zueitina and Hariga are among the oil ports that the eastern-based Libyan National Army (LNA) said on Monday it would transfer to a parallel NOC, which is based in the eastern city of Benghazi, after fighting this month at the Ras Lanuf and Al-Sidra terminals.

One tanker, the Felicity, finished loading 1 million barrels at Zueitina on Thursday under contract from NOC Tripoli.

But a second tanker, Amore Mio II, was waiting in the port area without permission to berth, sources said.

The Head of the parallel NOC, Faraj Al-Hassi, told Reuters he had ordered ports to prevent the entry of any tanker not authorised by his office.
