Oil production at Libya’s Sharara oilfield, the OPEC member’s largest, has reached around 295,000 barrels per day, a source with knowledge of the matter told Reuters on Monday. 

The oilfield resumed production earlier this month having faced two unplanned shutdowns.

Libya's National Oil Corporation was forced to declare force majeure on crude shipments from Zawiya port because supplies from the Sharara field were halted in late July after an armed group closed a pipeline linking the field to the port.
