On Tuesday there were riots around Eni’s oil and gas treatment plant in Mellitah, Libya
On Tuesday, the major oil and gas treatment plant in Mellitah in western Libya was temporarily stormed by an armed group of militiamen from the nearby coastal city of Zuwara. The plant is located about eighty kilometers west of Tripoli and is managed by ENI and the Libyan national company, the National Oil Corporation. The Greenstream gas pipeline starts from the industrial complex, connecting Africa to Sicily.

ENI made it known that the militia action lasted about an hour and then the situation returned almost to normal, despite the fact that there were tensions also the following day. According to a statement quoted by Republic and disseminated by the unions of the plant, and denied by an ENI spokesman, the militiamen would have instead come to block the entry and exit of employees, endangering their safety.


The militia action began after the local security officer, Imad al-Din Masoud, was arrested on a mandate from the Libyan Public Prosecutor’s Office on suspicion of illegal trafficking. The militiamen had considered the arrest of al-Din Masoud a “kidnapping”.
