Highlights include:

  • Crude production in August rebounded to an annual average of around 1 Mb/d after falling to a 15-month low of 660 Kb/d in July.

  • Exports have been more stable than production in recent months due to crude being loaded from Libya’s storage units (including floating storage at Zawiyah).

  • Ahead of national elections currently planned for 10 December, it is less likely the Libyan National Army (LNA) and the Petroleum Facilities Guard (PFG) will engage in another military standoff.
