Libya declares FM on crude shipments from Sharara again
The country had declared force majeure on loadings from its two oil terminals, Zawiya and Mellitah, in late March due to armed protestors blocking the western oil fields of Sharara and Wafa. The country had then lifted the force majeure after a week, in early April, and its oil production had reached 120,000 barrels/day, still down 100,000 barrels/day when compared to the levels produced before the shutdown. It was also planning to increase oil production from Sharara to 270,000 barrels/day by the end of this month.
