Leadership Insight Series: U.S.-Libya Energy Spotlight

On August 17, 2021, we were honored to host the 16th Annual U.S.-Libya Energy Spotlight virtual event, featuring an exclusive conversation with Mr. Mustafa Sanalla, Chairman of the Libya National Oil Corporation (NOC) and a member of Bilateral Chamber's Board of Advisors.


Chairman Sanalla is known for maintaining the NOC's political neutrality that has been credited with contributing to the recent recovery of the country's oil productivity.

The recent recipient of the Anti-Corruption Champion Award announced by the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, Chairman Sanalla will discuss his strategic vision to advance the country’s oil sector, and showcase the ample investment opportunities available to U.S. companies.


This event was part of our longstanding tradition of hosting key programming on the sidelines of the Offshore Technology Conference. Attendees gained insight into Libya’s rebuilding and redevelopment efforts.
