Based on the ELM, we have concluded that given a production decline in an oil-exporting country, the Net Export Decline (NED) rate will exceed the production-decline rate and the NED rate will accelerate with time – unless the exporting country cuts its oil consumption at the same rate as, or at a faster rate than, the rate of decline in production. Furthermore, the bulk of post-peak Cumulative Net Exports (CNE) tends to be shipped early in the NED period.
So far Libya is the only major oil exporting country in which the upheavals appear likely to threaten oil exports in the near future.

Libya exports about 1.5 million b/d most of which goes to Europe.
