Oil giant, Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) Nigeria says it has recovered more than 95 percent of the oil from two spills that took place in Nigeria this year.
Although the company says the pipeline that carries crude to the coast for export remains closed.
The Trans Ramos pipeline, which carries some Forcados crude oil to the export terminal, was closed in late April following two leaks, one in Abhoro in Bayelsa State and one in Odimodi, in Delta State.
A Shell spokesperson said there had been no change in the operating status of the pipeline.
The company said in a statement that “As soon as clean-up and site assessment are completed, we are committed to starting the immediate remediation of the impacted areas in Aghoro and Odimodi.”
The Forcados crude grade is one of Nigeria’s largest crude stream, along with Bonny Light and Qua Iboe.
