LONDON (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell said on Thursday it had repaired a pipeline in Nigeria shut since last month, allowing 180,000 barrels per day of shut Bonny Light oil production to start to resume.
“The pipeline is now in use,” Shell spokeswoman Caroline Wittgen said. “Eight of the nine flow stations shut in as a result of the leak have been reopened.”
The eight flow stations, which account for 173,000 bpd, are ramping up production, she said.
The ninth is set to reopen later.
