Shell resumes export of Bonny Light crude oil

Shell Nigeria, Thursday, resumed the export of Bonny Light crude oil grade from the Bonny Terminal, almost two months after force majeure was declared on the export of the commodity.

The lifting of the force majeure, according to a statement by the company, was due to the restoration of production into Bonny Terminal, following the repairs of the Nembe Creek Trunk Line.

The company said the lifting of the force majeure took effect from 09:00 a.m. Nigerian time (0800 GMT) on Thursday.

Shell had declared the force majeure on Bonny Light exports on May 11, following the closure of the Nembe Creek Trunk line (NCTL) for repairs after a leak.
