A highly attractive oil-producing country

Libya is regarded as a very attractive oil country due to its lower cost of oil production and its proximity to European markets.

The growth of the oil and gas sector has been hampered because of the civil war in the country.

Libya is seeking to increase production but with oil fields showing a 7-8% decline in production, its challenge is to maintain production from mature fields, while finding and developing new prolific fields.
Much of Libya’s territory is unexplored because of past sanctions and disagreements with oil companies.

 

A fresh economic start

Oil and gas exploration projects and increased Libyan oil and gas production are expected to drive demand in the market.

These agreements aim to develop solar projects to bring electricity to the people of Libya and to invest in projects to reduce gas flaring on oil fields to supply gas to power plants, as well as to contribute to the national objective of restoring the country’s oil production to 2 million barrels per day and supply the world markets.
