Nigeria: Total, Shell Halt 517,000 Barrels Crude Production

By Juliet Alohan With Agency Report, 24 October 2012

A total of 517,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day has been halted following the force majeure declared by oil giants Total and Shell.

Total has declared force majeure on gas supplies to Nigeria LNG’s liquefication plant, the company said yesterday.

The company said it had stopped oil and gas production from its onshore Oil Mining Lease (OML) 58 block, losing the equivalent of 90,000 barrels per day of oil equivalent.

The oil and gas major said it declared the force majeure 10 days ago at its OML 58 natural gas field in Nigeria due to flooding, which forced the company to halt its natural gas production there, and that it had stopped oil and gas production from its onshore OML 58 block. read more

Shell in Nigeria shuts in 25,000 bpd of oil


26 September 2011

LAGOS — Anglo-Dutch oil group Shell said Monday it has shut in 25,000 barrels per day of crude in a southern Nigerian oil field due to spills caused by sabotage and theft.

“The Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Ltd (SPDC) has shut in production from Imo River Field due to a recent upsurge of illegal bunkering and refining activities which have impacted the environment,” the company said in a statement.

“Some 25,000 barrels of oil per day is affected,” Shell said, adding it took the action on August 28 “to starve the illegal bunkerers of crude oil in order to prevent further environmental pollution.” read more
