Shell lifts force majeure on Nigerian Bonny Light crude exports


Royal Dutch Shell’s subsidiary in Nigeria (SPDC), lifted force majeure on Bonny Light crude oil exports at noon local time (1100 GMT) on Thursday, a spokesman said.

Shell declared force majeure one month ago following the shutdown of the Nembe Creek Trunk Line (NCTL), one of the two main pipelines taking Bonny Light grade to the export terminal. Exports have been continuing via the Trans Niger Pipeline.

Aiteo, operator of the NCTL, said on Tuesday that repairs to the pipeline had been completed.
