Shell reports sharp fall in Nigeria oil spills after shutdown

Canada Global (Web News) On Thursday, Shell announced a dramatic decrease in the amount of oil spilt as a result of sabotage in Nigeria’s oil-rich Delta in 2022, which was attributable to the shutdown of operations for six months following the attacks.

According to Shell’s yearly report, the amount of crude oil spilt due to sabotage in the Delta decreased from 3,300 tonnes to 600 tonnes.

Such leaks decreased from 106 to 75. As a result of an unprecedented rise in crude oil theft from the Trans Niger Pipeline (TNP), production was stopped down for nearly six months in 2022, according to Shell, which noted that the decline in incidents was related to this.

The primary onshore oil and petrol joint venture in Nigeria is operated by Shell and is called SPDC. For years, operational problems, theft, and sabotage have plagued SPDC.
