Platts survey: OPEC pumps 29.87 mln barrels of crude oil per day

Posted on 12 February 2014

Crude oil production from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) rose 150,000 barrels per day (b/d) to 29.87 million b/d in January from 29.72 million b/d in December as an increase of 280,000 b/d in still-beleaguered Libyan production more than offset drops in Angola, Iraq and Saudi Arabia, a just-released Platts survey of OPEC and oil industry officials and analysts showed Monday.
“The Libyan situation has a long way to go to play out but this is clearly good news,” said John Kingston, Platts global director of news. “Steady increases in Libyan output will help the country recover and will help bring stability to a market that is getting hit by various outages around the world.” Libyan production climbed to 530,000 b/d in January from 250,000 b/d in December after the restart of production at the 340,000 b/d-capacity Sharara field at the beginning of the month.
