LONDON, Mar. 10, 2008 (Thomson Financial delivered by Newstex) — Royal Dutch Shell PLC (NYSE:RDS A) has fully restored the operations of the Bacton gas terminal in the UK, a company spokesman said.

The facility, which supplies 10 pct of Britain’s gas needs, was shut on Feb 28 when a fire broke out at the waste water system. Partial operations resumed early last week.

The Shell spokesman said the terminal is now running at ‘full operational level’, with daily flow rates of over 28 mln cubic metres.

An investigation is still going on to determine the cause of the fire and scale of the damage it caused, he said.
