The headquarters of the National Oil Corporation in Tripoli are gleaming, the floors marble, the offices decked out with black leather chairs and fake flowers. It seems far from the fighting going on over oil terminals around the country.
But the man in charge looks at production and knows the future is bleak.
"We cannot produce. We are losing 80 percent of our production," says Mustapha Sanallah, the chairman of Libya's National Oil Corporation.
He looks like a typical executive, decked out in a suit and glasses. But beneath his calm veneer, he's worried.
