Libya’s armed conflict has been focused since April on the southern regions of Tripoli, an area quite far from oil fields and facilities, and this has allowed operations to carry on without interruption. In recent weeks, the only two major oil sites to have been damaged were a warehouse owned by Mellitah Oil & Gas, which was destroyed in an aerial bombardment, and some fuel storage tanks owned by Brega Oil Marketing Company, which were destroyed by shelling during fighting for control of Tripoli International Airport.
