LAGOS, May 1 (Reuters) – Exxon Mobil (XOM.N: Quote, Profile, Research) said on Thursday its production in Nigeria remained shut in while talks with striking unions continued, denying market rumours that it had begun to restart its 800,000 barrels per day (bpd) output.

A spokesman for Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L: Quote, Profile, Research) also said the company had yet to reopen production shut in by recent militant attacks. Shell said earlier this week that 164,000 bpd of its output had been lost due to the attacks.
