A shipping source working in the Oil Crescent area revealed to 218News details of the suspension of export operations that were announced by the Petroleum Facilities Guard  Sunday due to the delay in the payment of salaries, and for improvement in their working conditions.

The source said that the ports of Ras Lanuf, Al-Hurriya and Sidra have stopped exporting oil, except for the presence of some tankers that entered the past hours waiting to be loaded and transferred, and new tankers will not be allowed to enter until the status of the Facilities Guard members is settled.
