Return of Waha production helps oil output to 580,000 bpd

Libya has restarted production from the Waha fields bringing the country’s total output to 580,000 barrels per day, up some 80,000 bpd since the National Oil Corporation’s last posted figure.
A NOC executive was reported by Reuters to have said that oil from the fields, which are Libya’s oldest, was not being pumped to Sidra, as in the past.

The production, which actually began last week, is instead being diverted to Ras Lanuf.
