AITEO declares force majeure on Nembe Creek pipeline exporting Bonny Light crude

Nigeria’s indigenous oil producer, Aiteo has declared a force majeure on the Nembe Creek Trunk Line (NCTL), which exports Bonny Light crude oil.

The 150,000 barrels per day pipeline was shut down last week, the company spokesman told Reuters but didn’t give a reason.

The pipeline is one of two that exports Bonny Light, so the terminal is currently loading only from the Trans Niger Pipeline, a spokesman for terminal operator Shell said.

Aiteo reopened pipelines in May after closing it on April 21 due to a fire.
