The Opportunity

Libya depends on the oil sector for 95% of export earnings, 25% of its GDP and 80% of government revenues but only 25% of its territory has been explored to date.

Its oil sector is underdeveloped as output has been in decline for most of the last 40 years and advanced production technologies have not been employed.

The petrochemicals sector is not as well developed as the country’s oil and gas markets.
