Oil production is finally being ramped up at a number of fields that were not damged during six months of fighting between rebels and forces loyal to ousted leader Moammar Qadhafi.
Iraqi oil exports fell slightly in September to 2.1 bpd compared to 2.18mn bpd in August, the head of the State Oil Marketing Organization (Somo) stated.
The first quarter of 2012 could see Bahrain Petroleum Company (Bapco) finalise its expansion plans that would help boost Bahrain’s refining capacity to nearly half a million bpd.
Eni has restarted production in fifteen Libyan wells in Abu-Attifel, located 300 km south of Benghazi.
Apache has reported finding two new wells in Egypt's Western Desert that signal continued drilling success in the Faghur Basin and on concessions acquired in 2010.
