Libya's Zueitina oil port Monday prepared to load crude onto tankers after the government reached a deal with rebels to reopen four terminals that insurgents have occupied since summer.The federalist rebels Sunday agreed to gradually end their eight-month blockade of Zueitina, Hariga, Ras Lanouf and Es Sider ports, which account for around 700,000 barrels per day of the OPEC country's crude exports.Under the agreement with Tripoli's government, Zueitina and Hariga ports were expected to open immediately while the larger ports, Ras Lanouf and Es Sider with around 500,000 bpd capacity, will be reopened in two to four weeks after more negotiations.The remarks from the Hariga manager indicated how technical problems and ongoing negotiations over the two larger ports could still delay a full reopening of the North African state's oil supplies.
