    • WTI-Brent down -0.11$/bbl at -8.67$/bbl
  • Libya’s state oil operator aims to restore output to 1.2mbpd within two weeks after protests have restricted output for the last couple of months. Crude output was reported as 860kbpd at the end of last week with exports having hit a low of 323kbpd at the start of the month.
