LAGOS, March 16 (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L: Quote, Profile , Research) has begun repairs to a ruptured trunk pipeline in Nigeria that forced it to cut 187,000 barrels of oil per day (bpd) output on March 4, a spokesman said on Friday.

Work on the pipeline that feeds the Bonny export terminal was delayed by youths from a local community who seized Shell’s equipment and denied workers access to the spill in the Nembe Creek area.
