Libya's oil production has risen to about 554,000 barrels a day as production ramps up faster than expected at the country's largest field Sharara, an oil official said Tuesday.

The official at state-run National Oil Corp. said the production includes about 50,000 barrels a day of condensates and is up from 470,000 barrels a day Monday.

The news come despite intense fighting in recent days at Tripoli airport, in the worst violence in six months in the capital.
