Libya oil production falls 60,000 bpd after technical fault

LONDON, Jan 23 (Reuters) - Libya’s oil production has fallen by 60,000 barrels per day (bpd) after an electrical fault at the Sarir oilfield, the head of the National Oil Corp said on Monday.

The fault caused a fire at a substation, NOC head Mustafa Sanalla said at a Chatham House conference in London. Production was around 700,000 bpd before the incident, he said.
