Eni, Wintershall, Total, Repsol Cut Libyan Oil Output

Following is a list of oil companies active in Libya with information as to whether they have reduced production because of violent protests in Africa’s third-largest crude producer.

The output figures are for crude in barrels a day and are the latest estimate of pre-crisis production unless a timeframe is given in brackets. Libya produced 1.59 million barrels of crude a day in January, according to Bloomberg estimates.

All figures except those for Repsol YPF SA refer to each company’s share of production where fields are jointly owned with partners.
