LIBYAN CRUDE OIL  (FOB 15 Libyan ports)

Oil reserves in Libya are the largest in Africa and among the ten largest globally  with 46.4 billion barrels (7.38×109 m3) as of 2010. Oil production was 1.65 million barrels per day (262×103 m3/d) as of 2010, giving Libya 77 years of reserves at current production rates if no new reserves were to be found.  


Libya is considered a highly attractive oil area due to its low cost of oil production (as low as $1 per barrel at some fields in 2002),  low sulfur content, being classified as "sweet crude" and in its proximity to European markets. Libya's challenge is maintaining production at mature fields, while finding and developing new oil fields. Most of Libya remains under-explored as a result of past sanctions and disagreements with foreign oil companies.  Libya’s oil revenues nearly tripled in 2017 to US$14 billion as the country managed last year to gradually recover its oil production, reaching 1 million bpd for the first time since 2013.


According to data by Libya’s central bank, the revenues from oil sales almost tripled last year from US $4.8 billion in 2016.
