OPEC oil exporting production declined in June, and its share in global oil supply is expected to fall in the next two years due to rising non-OPEC oil supply in the next few years.

Statistics show that the decline was driven by a reduction in Libyan production, which production fell 206,000 barrels per day in June, contributing nearly 70 percent of the decline in total production, while Saudi Arabia continues to increase its production in the last two months.
