The 56 Rompetrol employees deployed to Libya have been safely repatriated and the company has temporarily suspended specific activities in this country, against the backdrop of the escalation of military conflicts and of the degradation of the situation overall.
‘KMG International, through Rompetrol SA – Drilling and Well Services Division – has successfully completed the evacuation and repatriation of all of the company’s 56 employees, amid intensifying military conflicts and the worsening of the general situation. The last 13 Rompetrol employees returned to the country this weekend. Taking into account that the Tripoli airport is closed/damaged, the employees were taken to Tunisia by road, and from here they arrived to Romania via France,’ reads a company release this Monday.
According to the cited source, based on agreements with its commercial partners, Rompetrol has temporarily suspended specific activities and the company’s more than 50 Libyan employees will ensure the maintenance of the installations and equipment in the oil fields, as well as the protection thereof.
The work camps are in the vicinity of the cities Awbari, Zillah and Awjila.
The Rompetrol Drilling and Well Services Division has been carrying out activities in Libya since 1976, operating in four locations, Tripoli included, which is also the site of the company’s headquarters.
