Libya's Sharara oil field stopped pumping crude oil several days after output plunged at another of the OPEC member's biggest deposits.Libya had been pumping 1.1 million barrels a day as of March 1, with Sharara contributing 300,000 of that.Production from Mellitah Oil & Gas B.V., a venture with Italy's Eni SpA that operates the Al-Feel field, tumbled on March 1 to 25,000 barrels a day from 75,000 barrels a day, after a protest by security guards shut that deposit.Output has risen from 370,000 barrels a day two years ago, though it remains well below the 1.8 million barrels a day Libya pumped before the ouster and killing of former leader Moammar Gadhafi.
