CAIRO, Dec 28 (Reuters) - A fire blamed on a missile fired during fighting at Libya's Es Sider port has destroyed 800,000 barrels of crude oil, the National Oil Corp said on Sunday.

The OPEC member state's total oil production stands at 385,000 barrels per day, the NOC said, while natural gas exports by the Mellitah joint venture have fallen to 60 percent of its capacity. NOC is partnered with Italy's Eni in the Mellitah JV.
