The drop is particularly impressive against the background of a record-high daily rate of 1.3 million barrels, reached in the last week of May. The drop is likely the result of growing exports from Nigeria and Libya—OPEC’s two members that were exempted from the production cut agreement last November.

Libya’s exports for June are seen at a high of almost 660,000 bpd this month, as the North African country comes closer to accomplishing its daily production goal of 1 million bpd. The latest update from the National Oil Corporation (NOC) pegged daily output at over 900,000 bpd.

The NOC’s target of 1 million bpd by the end of July seems achievable.
