TRIPOLI: Interim Libyan prime minister Abdullah al-Thani announced Wednesday the end to the country’s oil crisis, saying the authorities had regained control of two oil terminals that had been blocked by rebels.

He made the announcement at a joint press conference in Ras Lanuf with rebel leader Ibrahim Jodhran, who confirmed that the two ports had been opened.

The one at Ras Lanuf has a daily capacity of 200,000 barrels per day while the other, at Al-Sidra, has a capacity of 350,000 bpd.
