The four cargoes will be 950,000 barrels each, and daily exports of the light, sweet grade will be 127,000 bpd. In a month with no supply disruptions, Bonny Light exports are typically close to 200,000 bpd, according to Reuters data.
A spokesman for Royal Dutch Shell said last Friday that a force majeure, which relieves the Anglo-Dutch company from contractual deliveries due to actions beyond its control, remained in place on this grade.
A company may opt to keep a force majeure in place if it can only partially meet its contractual commitments.
The Shell spokesman declined to comment on current production levels.
