Will Libya’s Crude Oil Production Decline in May?

On May 22, the crude oil production at the Libyan Arabian Gulf Oil Company declined to ~145,000 bpd (barrels per day) from ~260,000 bpd, according to Bloomberg. The production declined due to the hot weather in Libya. The production could start again when the weather normalizes. Supply outages are usually bullish for crude oil prices.
