Oil spill: Shell cuts output by 50,000 bpd in Nigeria

A major oil spill has forced Anglo-Dutch oil giant Shell to cut production by 50,000 barrels per day in southern Nigeria, a company spokesman has said. “We have closed down four flowstations as a result of a spill at our Nembe Creek trunk line. Some 50,000 barrels of crude have been shut in,” Bisi Ojediran told AFP. He said the company had despatched experts to contain the spill to reduce its impact on the immediate environment. Ojediran could not immediately say if the spill had been an accident or an act of sabotage by militant gangs active in the oil-rich but restive Niger Delta region.Full Story
