Libya’s oil production rose to 900,000 barrels a day after a major crude pipeline was fixed, the energy minister said, though shutdowns elsewhere are still curtailing output.

The supply boost followed completion of works on a pipeline linking the eastern Samah and Dhuhra fields to the country’s biggest oil port, Es Sider, Mohamed Oun said Sunday in an interview. The maintenance had curbed production by 200,000 barrels a day.
