Shell resumes export from the Forcados terminal

Royal Dutch Shell plans to resume shipments from the Forcados terminal in the Niger Delta region, informs citing an official statement published by the Nigerian presidency on Tuesday.

"The Shell Director, Mr. Andrew Brown, informed the President of the resumption of oil exportation through the Forcados terminal following its restoration," goes the statement issued after a meeting between Brown and President Muhammadu Buhari.

The Forcados terminal used to produce about 250,000 to 300,000 barrels of crude before the facilities were attacked by the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) last February. After the assault all the operations in the terminal were halted.

The government intends to raise daily crude production up to 1.9 million barrels per day but militant groups are still active in the oil rich Niger Delta region – they attacked Chevron’s pipeline on Tuesday before the announcement of reopening of Forcados.

“Any attempt to use dialogue to distract us so as to allow the free flow of our oil will halt the dialogue process,” noted the militants.
