Shell Petroleum Declares Force Majeure On Gas Supplies To Nigeria

Shell Petroleum Development Company Nigeria has declared force majeure (FM) on gas supplies to the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) export facility on Bonny Island.

“The Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Ltd (SPDC) declared force majeure on gas supply to NLNG on 8 August 2016, following a leak on the Eastern Gas Gathering System (EGGS-1) pipeline through which it supplies the bulk of its gas to NLNG,” a spokesman told Reuters in an emailed statement.

SPDC, Royal Dutch Shell’s Nigerian unit, is a joint venture with state oil company Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). They supply gas to the LNG plant.

The declaration may impact exports from the facility, which is situated near Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
