A militia group, claiming to be part of the Petroleum Facilities Guard informal force, shut off several oil pipelines in the west of the country, halting production at the al-Fil, al-Hamada and al-Sharara fields. The group seized the pipelines to protest against the perceived marginalisation of the region, local media reported. As a result of the blockade, the state-owned National Oil Company declared force majeure at the three affected oil fields.
