Shell Restarts Output at Nigeria Platforms

Shell’s Nigerian subsidiary has restarted oil production at five platforms shut down last month by protests in the troubled Niger Delta, but a pipeline leak has cut output elsewhere, a company spokesman said Monday.

Production is now at 76,000 barrels per day from Awoba North and the other four affected platforms, higher than their 70,000 barrels-per-day output before the protests, he said.
