Libya’s oil production is 580,000 to 600,000 barrels per day (bpd) and officials are negotiating with western municipalities to return another 380,000 bpd output from those areas, Prime Minister Fayez Al-Serraj said on Sunday.

Al-Serraj held on Saturday prolonged talks with Martin Kobler, the UN delegate to Libya in Tripoli, discussing the necessary ways for Libya to move on.

Kobler also told Al-Serraj that the UN totally supports the GNA and Presidential Council which were brokered by the UN in Skhirat, Morocco on December 17 last year.

Libya’s production has been battered by port shutdowns, strikes and protests closing pipelines since the fall of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. Output has increased recently since the reopening of major oil export terminals.
