Oilfields and pipelines in western Libya could reopen Monday after protesters announced an end to their three-month blockade of key oil infrastructure, according to the National Oil Corporation (NOC).

The end of the blockade could raise Libyan output by 500,000 bpd.

NOC spokesman Mohamed al-Harari said on Monday the El Sharara, El Feel, and Wafa fields, as well as the pipelines connecting them to the Zawiya port and the Mellitah condensates line, would all re-open before the end of the day.

“The protesters have announced that their blockade is over and all the lines in the west will reopen tonight,” al-Harari said.

Protests have closed the pipeline network in the west of Libya since March.
