Royal Dutch Shell, Nigeria’s largest oil producer, has cut oil production by 50,000 barrels per day after a major pipeline leak in the turbulent oil-producing Niger Delta region.

The company said yesterday it was investigating the cause of the leak, which takes to 500,000 b/d Shell’s total lost output following a series of militant attacks on oil facilities earlier this year.
