Shell Shuts Down Trans Forcados Pipeline Over Leak

Shell’s Nigerian subsidiary has shut its Trans Forcados crude oil export pipeline in Nigeria due to a leak, the company said in a statement.

Shell Petroleum Development Company, (SPDC,l) says the leak occurred on May 7, it has been nine days since pipeline was shut down for repairs. Trans Forcados has Shell as terminal operator and pipeline operator, it transports about 200,000 to 240,000 barrels per day of crude, and over 15 oil fields are now shut-in due to the leak.

Shell pumps the roughly 50,000BOPD crude it currently produces in its operated Western Niger Delta fields (held in Joint Venture with NNPC, TOTAL and ENI) through the pipeline and exports the crude from the Forcados Terminal.

The six Joint Ventures that NPDC has with Nigerian independents (Seplat, Shoreline Natural Resources, Neconde, Elcrest E&P, ND Western and First Hydrocarbon Nigeria) also pumps through the Forcados.

Although Seplat declared, in its 1st Quarter 2018 report, that it already had an alternative to TFP in case of the extended outage.

Will private management of Nigeria's refineries be a success story?
