Greenstream is a joint venture between the National Oil Corporation (NOC) of Libya, and Eni.

The volumes of gas shipped during the testing period mark the preliminary restart of the pipeline operations after eight months of stoppages due to the conflict in Libya.

The first tests are run with 3 MMcf/d, produced by the Wafa field, located about 500 km southwest of Tripoli in the Libyan desert. The field largely supplies the Libyan gas domestic market used for power generation. Wafa field has been producing gas during the entire period of the conflict allowing electricity supply to the local population.

As operator of the pipeline, Greenstream has been working with Mellitah Oil and Gas Company – operator of production fields in Libya – to progressively restore production activities in all their participated fields in Libya.
