      A commander seeking to oust Libya‘s United Nations-backed government will let the country’s oil industry re-open after an eight-month blockade thats all but halted exports, according to U.S. diplomats.

      Khalifa Haftar gave his “personal commitment” to “allow the full reopening of the energy sector” by Sept. 12, the U.S. embassy in Tripoli, the capital, said in a statement the same day. He made the pledge via an exchange of letters between his self-styled Libyan National Army and the embassy.

      Libya, which holds Africas largest crude reserves, pumped 1.2 million barrels a day last year. Output has plummeted to 80,000 barrels a day after Haftar, who controls most of eastern Libya and is trying to unseat the Tripoli-based administration of Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj in the west, halted operations at fields and ports in his territories in mid-January.

      Any increase in production could unnerve the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies. The group, known as OPEC+ and led by Saudi Arabia and Russia, holds a virtual meeting on Thursday to decide whether to continue easing output cuts agreed in April at the height of the coronavirus pandemic.

      Oil prices have since rallied to around $40 a barrel, but are still down 40% this year amid concern about an acceleration of infections in some countries. Libya has been exempt from the cartels cuts because of its strife.

      Libya has been wracked by lawlessness and war since a 2011 revolt that overthrew former dictator Muammar al-Qaddafi. The conflict has drawn in other nations including Turkey, which supports Sarraj. Russia, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt back Haftar.

      Oil and gas facilities have been at the heart of the conflict, with different groups closing or sabotaging them to press their political and economic demands.

      The shutdown of energy infrastructure has also led to widespread blackouts because electricity stations have been deprived of fuel. The power crisis has led to protests in Tripoli and in Benghazi, the biggest city in the east.
