CAIRO - Libya's national oil corporation, NOC, said on Monday that oil production was at 135,745 barrels per day as of Monday.

The statement added that losses from the oil blockade exceeded $1.6 billion.

Oil output in Libya has fallen sharply since Jan. 18 because of a blockade of ports and oil fields by groups loyal to eastern-based commander Khalifa Haftar.
