Report informs, Libya's National Oil Corporation (NOC) said in a statement to The Wall Street Journal.
Libya's National Oil Corporation was provided with additional funding by Libyan governmentand as a result it is expected to increase oil exports. However, the main reason for increasing exports shows the factor that Libyan government and armed groups in the country have reached an agreement.
Notably, analysts of "Bank of America" announced that oil prices will drop to 35-40 USD/barrel.
The reason is global economic stagnation and growth of supply in oil market. Bank analysts added that
If oil production sector will work at full capacity supply in oil market will be increased and prices will automatically drop.
