On Sunday, Libya’s oil production is at 1.2 million barrels per day, according to Libyan oil minister Mohammed Oun.

In press statements, Oun said that output has climbed to 1.2 million barrels per day, noting that the level is a milestone after production had been more than halved since mid-April.

The Minister added that the increase came after an agreement was reached earlier this month with protesters and tribal leaders to reopen fields and export terminals shut mainly for months.

The North African nation’s oil output has been hit by a power struggle between rival governments headed by Abdul Hamid Dbaiba in the west and Fathi Bashagha in the east.
