Nigeria’s Oil Export To Receive Boost As Shell Sets To Reactivate Vandalized Pipeline
The Shell has finalized arrangements to resume operation on its 800,000 barrels per day crude oil export pipeline in Delta State.
The major pipeline is scheduled to re-open for transporting of crude to Forcados oilexport terminal, by the end of this month, after the completion of its repairs.
The major pipeline had been shut down since July 17, after the discovery of a leak in its sub sea hose at Forecados terminal, which cut off 258,000 barrels daily from its export.

Media relations manager of Shell production development company, Abimbola Essien-Nelson, who anniunced this in a statement, says clamp theft points on the onshore pipeline are being removed to ensure all crude get to the export terminal.
The move is expected to raise Nigeria’s daily oil production to meet new OPEC quota fixed at 1.8 million for the month of October.
