Ras Lanuf, Libya (PortSEurope) June 14, 2018 – Rebel attacks on two eastern Libyan ports have led to a reduction in the country’s oil production by a quarter, a representative of the national oil company National Oil Corp. said.
According to the company, oil production of Libya was reduced by about 240,000 barrels a day, while loading of oil tankers was also suspended.
Disruptions to production occurred after insurgent attacks on the terminals of Es-Sider and Ras Lanuf. After several years of decline, oil production in Libya has recently recovered to about 1 million barrels per day.
Meanwhile, interruptions in oil production are also observed in other regions, including Venezuela.
