Published: 13-DEC-06

Tipoli - Officials of Libya and Norway have met to review co-operation between the two countries in oil and gas prospecting and production.

Choukri Ghanem, secretary of the Libyan Oil Company (NOC) management committee and Norwegian Oil and Energy Minister Odd Roger Enoksen, on Tuesday co-chaired the meeting, official sources said.

During the meeting, Enoksen highlighted the importance of joint investment and his country's desire to enhance ties with Libya as well as explore opportunities for Norwegian companies in oil technology transfer and domestication in Libya.

For his part, Ghanem stressed the need to enable competent nationals to work in Norwegian oil companies operating in Libya and to grant them the same privileges accorded other nationals in these firms.

The members of the NOC management committee, the delegation accompanying the Norwegian minister as well as the heads of Norwegian companies operating in Libya took part in the meeting.

Enoksen arrived in Libya on Monday at the start of a visit meant to examine bilateral ties between Libya and Norway in the areas of oil and gas. -panapress
