Ending the disputes between the Oil Corporation and the Ministry of Oil

Libyan Prime Minister Abdel Hamid al-Dabaiba issued a decision to cancel a previous decision of the Minister of Oil to suspend the work of the head of the National Oil Corporation, Mustafa Sanalla.

The prime minister said Mustafa Sanalla, head of the state-run National Oil Corporation, would remain in his post.

Mustafa Sanalla had been in office since 2014, seeking to distance the National Oil Corporation from the political struggle between the two rival governments in the east and west.

The oil minister, Mohamed Aoun, wanted to change the board of directors of the National Oil Corporation and dismiss Sanalla, a move that Libyan Prime Minister Abdel Hamid al-Dabaiba resisted.
