Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) Limited has declared suspension of further interventions in pipeline repairs and environmental remediation in Niger Delta following relentless attacks on facilities by militants in the region.
The decision which has grim implication on government revenue, according to the company, followed second attack on the company’s Forcados export pipeline just after repairs on the first damages by militants on the offshore section of the line.
