The crisis has slashed production, previously estimated at 1 million barrels per day, by 850,000 bpd, the National Oil Corporation, run by the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord, said.The NOC said all exports have been suspended from the oil crescent in northeast Libya after operations were frozen at the terminals of Al-Hariga and Zueitina.The suspension amounts to a $67.4 million loss every day in Libya's heavily oil-dependent public revenues, according to the NOC.The NOC, under a U.N. resolution, has been in charge of managing the oil crescent and export revenues, even though Haftar's LNA forces took over control of the region in 2016 .
