Marshal Haftar can take a breath: the interests of the oil market helped to "freeze" the Libyan conflict

The Libyan armed conflict was "frozen" for some time. A role in this was played not only by direct threats from the Egyptian president to send troops to Libya if pro-Turkish militants crossed the Sirte-Al-Jufra line, but also by the interests of the oil market.


The fact is that during the offensive of the PNS forces on the positions of the Libyan National Army, Marshal Haftar Faiz Sarraj, who heads the government of national accord, promised to "open ports for oil export." Sarraj was made clear that the increase in the volume of Libyan oil on the world market is not included in the plans of those who worked on the new OPEC + deal. It turns out that getting the PNS control over the country's oil ports is not included in the plans. After all, it turned out that the overwhelming number of exporting countries pledged to reduce production, and Sarraj announced an increase in Libyan oil exports to the world market.

The advance of the PNS and pro-Turkish forces to the east of Libya stopped. Marshal Haftar can take a breath. After all, in just a few weeks of the offensive of the PNC, supported by Ankara, his army lost important military bases and vast territories.

Now, as it became known, Libyan terminals will export crude oil in the amount of 1,2 million barrels in August. This is about 40 percent less than in July.

At the moment, the level of Libyan oil production has also dropped. If at the beginning of the year it exceeded a million barrels per day, now it has fallen more than 10 times.

Meanwhile, the government of national accord continues to claim that many large oil-producing and processing infrastructure is "overly militarized." It is stated that foreign mercenaries are present at them.

It is noteworthy that this reproaches the PNS, which itself actively uses the services of mercenaries transferred by Turkey from the Syrian Idlib.

    Oil dollar, oil, gas, and so on ... for a hundred years of war all over the world over this very oil. And it is not the oligarchs who pump this oil that are dying in the millions, but ordinary citizens. They often talk about a parallel reality, but forgive us what kind of life we ​​live in if we go to our deaths for the interests of others?

      Well, now it is roughly clear where our "chopovtsy" went through Belarus - "to guard the oil rigs" in Libya. Extra oil on the Russian market is also not needed! There has already been a message on the network that Russia has blocked the export of Libyan oil.

        It's not about "excess oil", but about the wallets and games of the world's elites. And who's a bargaining chip? Right, we, ordinary citizens.
        We're inventing new super-duper-hyper missiles, but we're not looking for an alternative to oil. What the hell if it's a gold mine? And don't care about the environment, the deaths of millions of ordinary people, and so on ...
        Why create a cure for cancer, invent new sources of energy, make life better, cheaper and more comfortable for ordinary people, if you can only give them the illusion of freedom, comfort and well-being?

          a cure for cancer, new energy sources - I remember the video showed where Trump said that they already had it - a couple of years have passed and silence, they asked to forget? what they say is a swindler, what happened is not clear, maybe they killed, too, according to energy sources, they stole Tesla and hid it, read that the grandfather-great-grandfather of the Bushes was involved there, because they were turned into a war by Satanists, they are all at a glance- remove them and the world would be easier to live

    I think this whole truce will not last long, too high stakes in the game. Too many want to control the Libyan oil

    Well, it looks like the ears are cut into the Libyan repertoire.

    The division of states has become almost commonplace in the 20th century.
    Divide Libya and that's it.
    The weak must die.
    Egypt coped with the color revolution.
    Syria is still fighting for territorial integrity.
    Libya cannot keep a single state.

    For you, this is a discovery; ordinary citizens have always paid mostly for other people's interests.

    And not only .. There is an opinion that the private security company "Mar" contracted PNS, albeit with far-reaching political goals and at the suggestion of the curators ... So they would be silent ...
