The Libyan National Oil Corporation (NOC) has declared a state of emergency after oil supplies from several ports were suspended, APA reports citing Sputnik.

The statement comes after the company said earlier in the day that the possible shutdown of oil terminals would have far-reaching negative consequences for the nation’s economy.

Libyan media reported on 17 January that protesters had entered the oil port of Zueitina in the eastern part of the country, but the terminal had not been closed.
