The U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Richard Norland, stressed "the need for the NOC to continue playing its unified, apolitical, technocratic role in Libya’s oil and gas sector, in coordination with the Ministry of Oil and Gas," according to a statement published by the U.S. Embassy.

Norland's comments came "in a detailed conversation" with National Oil Corporation (NOC) Chairman Mustafa Sanalla.

The U.S. embassy said that Norland also discussed the situation in the Libyan energy sector with Sanalla.

The NOC has not issued any statement regarding the meeting of Sanalla and Norland.
