Tunisia Gasfield Protesters Reach Deal, Production To Restart: Government

Journal of Petroleum Technology 

Protesters blockading oil and gas fields in southern Tunisia have reached an agreement with the government to end a sit-in and allow production to restart immediately, the government and protesters said on 16 June. Protests over jobs in southern Tataouine and Kebili provinces hit oil and gas production in a region where French company Perenco and Austrian producer OMV operate. The deal calls for jobs in oil companies and development projects. Labor Minister Imed Hammami told a press conference the agreement would allow production to restart immediately. "It is an agreement that addresses all our demands for the region, and we will end the sit-in," Tarek Haddad, one of the protest leaders at the Kamour site, told Reuters.
