ALGIERS- Libya is producing more than 1 million barrels per day of oil and its average 2018 production so far is 1.03 million bpd, a Libyan oil source said on Sunday.

The oil-rich North African country was producing more than 1.6 million bpd before a 2011 NATO-backed uprising that toppled Muammar Gaddafi and led to political fragmentation and armed conflict.
