Libya's oil sector has been dogged by unrest since the overthrow of leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. A power struggle involving various tribal, military and political factions has since affected oil infrastructure through port blockades and pipeline shutdowns, said Reuters.

Libya, along with Nigeria, is exempt from a deal between the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and non-OPEC producers to curb output by around 1.8mn bpd.
