North Africa


Long North Africa’s biggest oil producer, Libya has been chronically unstable since the 2011 revolution that overthrew Qadhafi. At least 2017 was ‘two steps forward and one step back’ with output rising to a four year high of 1mn b/d. But, amid continued inter-factional fighting, the next move could just as easily be down as up.
