France’s Total is planning to resume its Libyan onshore oil operations by the end of December.

A spokesman from the company told Reuters that certain logistical issues need to be solved, but when that happens onshore production can be restarted.

Total has about 60,000 barrels a day (b/d) of capacity in Libya. Its main offshore production area is the Al-Jurf field, with 41,000 b/d, and the onshore Mabruk field, which has a capacity of 19,000 b/d.
