Welcome to the Libya Oil Almanac - the first open source reference for the Libyan oil industry.

Learn about the history of Libya's membership of OPEC through the wave of nationalisations in the Middle East in 1970s, the impact of UN and US sanctions on Libya's oil and gas industry; or find out how Libya's new licensing procedures work, and how Libya's $50 billion Sovereign Wealth Fund is managed.

This is a living document that will continue to expand as articles are added by contributors in Libya and elsewhere. If you want to make a guide to the extractive industry in your country, see our three-question, two-minute questionnaire or contact us at wikiguides(at)
