The Oil & Gas Year Libya 2010
The Oil & Gas Year Libya 2010 opens with an interview with the late Dr Shokri Ghanem, chairman of Libya’s National Oil Corporation. He told TOGY, “There has been a great sense of optimism for 2010.” One year later, the country was riven by civil war, Colonel Muammar Abu Minyar Al Gaddafi was deposed and Ghanem was driven to exile in Vienna.
The Oil & Gas Year Libya 2010 is a fascinating snapshot of a hydrocarbons industry run by international oil companies and a dictatorship in its final year. This book remains the best resource on how the oil industry used to operate before being ravaged by the 2011 war, as well as serving as an indispensable guide to investors trying to understand how it will develop in future.
