BENGHAZI, Oct 30 (Reuters) - Oil production from Libya’s Sirte Oil Company, a subsidiary of the National Oil Corporation, has reached a seven-year high of 80,000 barrels per day (bpd), an engineer at the company told Reuters.
The OPEC member state’s total oil production is nearly 700,000 bpd, a Libyan oil source told Reuters on Thursday.
Production has been recovering from about 100,000 bpd in September after the easing of an eight-month blockade by eastern forces.
