Libya's western El Sharara and El Feel oilfields remain closed due to protests despite efforts by tribal leaders to reopen them, a member of the protesters said on Tuesday.

The two fields, which used to produce around 400,000 barrels a day, have been closed for months due to pipeline blockades and a strike of oil security guards.

"The two fields are still closed," said a member of the oil guards, asking not to be named.
