Reuters: Shell finishes Nigeria’s Bonny oil pipeline repair

Thu Feb 28, 2008 12:53pm

LONDON, Feb 28 (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell said on Thursday that repair works to a pipeline connected to the Bonny Light oil terminal in Nigeira had been completed and oil had started flowing.

Early in February, Shell declared force majeure on Bonny Light exports and stopped shipments from the terminal to repair three pipeline leaks, which were first discovered in January.

“The Nembe Creek pipeline has been repaired and oil started flowing,” a Shell spokesman said. “Force majeure is still in place.”

He declined to specify when the repair work was finished or at what volume oil was flowing now.

The affected pipeline feeds about 130,000 barrels per day to the Bonny Light export terminal. (Reporting by Ikuko Kao)
