LONDON, Oct 8 (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L: Quote, Profile, Research) last week lifted a force majeure declaration on shipments from its Forcados oil export terminal in Nigeria, a company spokeswoman said on Monday.

Enough crude was now available from storage and current production to honour its contracts, the official said.

The spokeswoman said there was only a small amount of output from the oilfields, which pumped about 500,000 barrels per day before militant attacks shut production.
