Chairman of the Libyan National Oil Corporation (NOC), Farhat Bengdara, met Saturday with the CEO of the Italian energy company, Eni, Claudio Descalzi, to sign an agreement to develop two gas fields off the western coast of Libya. This was in the presence of the Libyan outgoing Prime Minister, Abdul Hameed Dbeibeh, and the Italian Prime Minister, Georgia Meloni. Bengdara had revealed in previous statements that the Italian company had agreed to invest eight billion dollars to develop two gas fields, while the Oil Minister of Dbeibeh’s government, Mohamed Aoun, rejected this agreement. Aoun said in statements Saturday that activating the investment agreement in two gas fields in the Mediterranean, Extraction A and Extraction B, to produce 850 million cubic feet, is illegal and lacks equality between the Libyan and Italian sides. The Libyan government, headed by Fathi Bashagha, also rejected this approach, stressing its objection to what it called the mysterious deal between the National Oil Corporation and Eni.

Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni flew to Tripoli on Saturday where she is expected to agree a major gas deal aimed at boosting energy supplies to Europe despite the insecurity and political chaos in the North African country. However, Libya's parliament and major armed factions reject the legitimacy of Dbeibah's government, raising fears of a new bout of conflict after more than two years of comparative peace. Insecurity and lawlessness has made Libya a major, but dangerous, route for migrants seeking to reach Europe, often via the Italian island of Lampedusa. Meloni has made tackling illegal migration a major plank of her governing agenda and she has pushed the issue in recent visits to Algeria and Egypt. Italian Interior Minister Matteo Piantedosi, who oversees much of the migration issue for Rome, flew to Libya with Meloni.

Research aligning defense and military areas could help secure the area’s future. With the proximity of Fort Hood, this has the potential to redefine the economy. The park is still conceptual at this point, and it’s uncertain when it will be a reality. Even with the university designing a big campus, there are no guarantees of success. It’s a bold concept, but it’s unknown at this point how it will all play out.

Comment on this story Comment Gift Article ShareCAIRO — Italy’s prime minister arrived in Libya on Saturday for talks with officials from the country’s west-based government that will focus on energy and migration, top issues for Italy and the European Union. She previously visited Tunisia and earlier this week Algeria, Italy’s main supplier of natural gas, where she signed several memorandums. The Italian firm has continued to operate in Libya despite ongoing security issues, producing gas mostly for the domestic market. Libya delivered just 2.63 billion cubic meters to Italy through the Greenstream pipeline last year, well below the 8 billion cubic meters annual levels before the country descended into civil unrest. Last year, in the wake of the Russian onslaught, Italy reduced imports by two-thirds, to 11 billion cubic meters.

On the issue of what to do with the plethora of armed groups that had emerged, Martin comments on the “failure to understand the armed groups and tackle the full security sector. While the number of Tripoli-based armed groups had decreased, those that remained had consolidated their power in a vertically-integrated model running from senior government offices to the young men toting guns on the street. Local communities will know better than centralized authorities how to reintegrate armed group actors into their milieu, forsaking the gun for more peaceful occupations. How armed group actors are included in the political process requires careful deliberation — and a caveat emptor. Since then, however, armed groups have pushed their way more directly into the political process, with the help of foreign actors who have hosted “secret” meetings between the western Libyan armed groups and Haftar’s military and civilian representatives.

Misrata Free Zone (MFZ) port announced yesterday that it had received an improved safety classification in accordance with the requirements of the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS-Code). The improved safety classification covers bulk carrier, oil tanker and cargo ships and is valid for five years. MFZ said the improved certification helps increase the classification of the port globally and attracts new shipping lines and reduces ship insurance. Speaking exclusively to Libya Herald, Aladdin Baba, Director of the Marketing and Media Department of the MFZ, confirmed that the MFZ port has fully fulfilled the requirements of the new classification’s security plan. Thus, the MFZ port gets classification No.

Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni is preparing for a visit to Libya as part of efforts to secure more oil and gas supplies from North Africa. The NOC plans to bolster oil production to 2.1 million barrels per day by 2025. Europe, faced with dwindling Russian exports, aims to secure alternative sources of natural gas. The companies will also conduct studies to “identify possible measures” to improve Algeria's energy export capacity to Europe. The country is Africa's biggest gas exporter and supplies about 11 per cent of the natural gas consumed in Europe.

That someone was 13-year-old Kristin Preble. She took the papers to school as a show-and-tell project for her eighth grade class. Preble took them to his Franklin Park home, where they sat for more than three years as a faintly appreciated keepsake. "We had looked through them but didn't think they were important," Carol Preble, Kristin's mother, said back then, apparently unimpressed by the classified markings. Debategate faded, but not the concern over how classified documents are handled by those in power.

The General Awqaf Authority in Tripoli, which is controlled by the former Grand Mufti of Libya, dismissed by the House of Representatives (HoR), al-Sadiq al-Ghariani, seeks to spread extremist ideology in Libya through religious schools in Tripoli and its environs, in addition to a religious program that targets primary and preparatory public schools. The Awqaf Authority in the government of Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh, which is under the hardline mufti al-Ghariani, announced the launch of a program in public schools, which it said, “aims to spread religious awareness in schools, and to combat intellectual and cultural invasion,” during a meeting of the authority with Education Minister Musa al-Maqryef on Thursday. The minister recommended that this program include “students, teachers, and parents until the desired goals are achieved.”In April 2022, Abdul Hamid Dbeibeh granted the dismissed mufti, Sadiq al-Ghariani, permission, by official decree No. 709, to establish religious schools for the stages of preparatory and secondary education. Al-Ghariani issued a decree to put Dbeibeh’s decision into action and established several religious schools in various municipalities, especially in Tripoli and the cities around it.

Digital in Architecture, a free eBrief from SNA Displays, discusses how the architectural community is integrating LED displays into physical spaces. It also provides several key examples of how organizations of all sizes are taking advantage of LED display technology as a visual medium. The opportunities for mood-setting content, digital public art, branding, communication, and other memorable forms of messaging are too enticing to pass up. Furthermore, with the increased demand for LED display technology, audio-visual integrators consistently recommend intentionally designing spaces with AV in mind, not as an afterthought. Download this free eBrief to learn more about how architects are incorporating LED video display technology into the design and construction of new spaces and the modernization of older spaces.
