Shell has announced a force majeure on gas supplies from the Niger River Delta

Shell has announced a force majeure on gas supplies from the Niger River Delta caused by a leak on a pipeline on Bonny Island, says OilPrice.com with a reference to an official statement made by the Shell information department.

“The [Shell Petroleum Development Company] declared force majeure on gas supply to [the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas facility] on August 8th, 2016, following a leak on the Eastern Gas Gathering System (EGGS-1) pipeline through which it supplies the bulk of its gas to NLNG,” the statement said.

Bonny Island, located in the Niger River Delta, has been operated by the NNPC, Shell, Total and Eni. The site allows exporting 22 million tons of liquefied natural gas every year. Among the main consumers of the Bonny Island LNG are Italy, France and Portugal.

The Niger River Delta is the hot-spot of the region where separatists have taken to attacking oil operations.
