TRIPOLI, Dec 20 (Reuters) - Libya's National Oil Corporation said on Tuesday that pipelines leading from the western fields of Sharara and El Feel had been reopened after a two-year blockade, paving the way for a major boost to production.

The NOC said in a statement that it expects to add 175,000 barrels per day (bpd) to national production in the next month, and 270,000 bpd over the next three months. (Writing by Aidan Lewis; Editing by Adrian Croft)
