A statement over the weekend from Libya's Minister of Oil and Gas:

  • Libya is currently losing more than 1,100,000 barrels per day (bpd) of oil production
  • most of the oil fields are closed, except for the Hamada field and the Mellitah complex, while the Al-Wafa field continues operations from time to time.
  • “ ... it appears that the closure instructions were issued by an official body, the Petroleum Facilities Guard in the closure areas”, Aoun said.

Not a lot more further detail at this stage.
