Shell to repair Nigerian oil line soon

by Business News Report

Shell’s Nigerian venture is working to complete repairs on a damaged Nigerian oil pipeline by the end of January, helping to boost supplies. Shell Petroleum Development Co. (SPDC) had to shut down the 90-kilometre (56-mile) Nembe Creek Trunkline on December 24 after leaks caused by crude theft, delaying oil output of 70,000 barrels per day (bpd).
In a statement on Friday, Shell said an investigation by government officials; Shell and community representatives found thieves had installed valves at two points on the line in Nembe, Bayelsa State. The company recovered more than 200 barrels of spilled oil.
