The agency added that the country’s oil output averaged around 2.53 million bpd during the third quarter, compared with 2.48 million bpd during the previous quarter.

It also said that in September, the UAE along with Kuwait and Saudi Arabia lifted up their oil output in order to offset the shortage from Libyan supplies that were halted due to the civil war.
