The Russian oil firm Rosneft has begun lifting oil from Libya, the Chairman of the National Oil Corporation (NOC) Mustafa Sanallah, told reporters on July 11, 2017, according to Reuters.
«It is a 1 year contract and they are lifting one-two cargoes on a monthly basis,» Sanallah added, according to Reuters.
Meanwhile, oil headed higher Monday as news that Libya and Nigeria have been invited to join OPEC’s meeting with other major producers later this month helped to lift futures prices.
The 2 countries had been exempted from a recent pact to limit global production and ease a glut of oil that has plagued the industry.
