Benghazi to supply Tarhuna with fuel amid shortage in western Libya

Brega Petroleum Marketing Company (BPMC) in Benghazi, the base of the Libyan National Army (LNA), has decided to to send fuel supplies to Tarhuna per a request from the officials of the western city.

Many western cities, including Tarhuna, 65 kilometers to the southeast of Tripoli, have suffered from the cut of fuel and gas supplies since the beginning of the war in the capital.

The clashes between the LNA and the Government of National Accord (GNA) have closed the roads connecting Tripoli to the other western cities, including Tarhuna with a total population of 210,697 and Misurata with of 386,120 people.

On the other hand, Brega Company in Tripoli suspended its fuel supplies to some western cities and the southern region as well due to the lack of security and fear of the safety of truck drivers, according to a statement in late April, which prompted many citizens to buy gasoline from the black market.

Meanwhile, the National Oil Corporation (NOC) and the BPMC said on April 7 fuel supply to Tripoli has not been affected by the military escalation around the capital.
