Libyan oil

Oil production in Libya fell to 500,000 barrels per day, from the 1.2 million it produced per day in recent years. The recent closures of wells and ports have caused 50 million a day losses. The Libyan Minister of  Oil and Gas,  Mohamed Aoun, reported today.

This week, political instability reached the oil sector when tribal pressure prevented workers from accessing several terminals. And they were forced to interrupt production to demand the  Government of National Unity (GUN) in Tripoli cede power to the parallel Executive appointed by the  Parliament of Tobruk.

The National Oil Company (NOC ) announced the closure of several oil fields, including the country’s main one, Sharara. In addition to the suspension of exports in three ports, one in the west and two in the eastern part of the country.
