Mellitah Oil & Gas, a joint venture of Italy’s Eni and Libya National Oil Corporation (NOC) is looking for buyers for a floating storage and offloading vessel that previously operated at the Bouri oilfield off Libya.

Officially known as the Sloug marine terminal, the vessel is being offered on an “as it is, where it is” basis, according to documentation from Mellitah.

An informed source said that the FSO’s last known location, before its automatic identification system was switched off 18 months ago, was 50 kilometres off Tripoli.
