A power substation at Libya’s Sarir oilfield that was damaged by fire in January has been replaced, allowing for a production boost of 26,000 barrels per day (bpd), the company operating the field said on Monday.

Workers finished installing the substation on Saturday and production was expected to rise in the next few days said Youssef Amreemi, an official from Arabian Gulf Oil Company (AGOCO), a subsidiary of Libya’s National Oil Corporation.
