PARIS, March 11 (Reuters) - Libya's Al Jurf offshore oil field has stopped producing amid turmoil in the country, Total (TOTF.PA: Quote) Chief Executive Christophe de Margerie said on Friday.

Libya's Mabruk oil field had already been stopped for some time, de Margerie said.

A Total executive had said at the start of the month that production at the Mabruk field would gradually come to a halt. [ID:nLDE7211C1]

The head of the French oil major said he estimated Libya's current oil output at between 200,000 and 300,000 barrels per day.
