Libya’s Arabian Gulf Company, a subsidiary of state oil firm NOC, is producing an additional 2,900 barrels per day (bpd) from the Massila oilfield after connecting a well, an NOC statement said on Sunday.

The well, which was abandoned in 1979, has been reconnected since Friday thanks to new drilling technologies, the statement added.
