Statoil participates in land-based oil production activities in the Mabruk field and in the Murzuq basin. We have performed exploration programmes in other parts of the country, but have relinquished these licences.
Libya is a major exporter of oil and gas and has many promising areas both onshore and offshore. Due to the political instability in the country, however, the production has varied significantly in recent years. Statoil is represented in the country by local employees in Tripoli.
