Shell in Niger Delta

Anglo-Dutch oil major Shell could resume oil production in the Niger Delta in a matter of time.

Anglo-Dutch oil major Shell could resume oil production in the Niger Delta in a matter of time. "Jeroen van der Veer has said that we may resume output in the Niger Delta in months," said a company spokesperson.

About 477 000 barrels per day could be taken back into production by Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC), in which Shell holds 30%. Attacks in February 2006 caused production to shut down. The Shell spokesperson said he could not give an exact time frame for the resumption of Niger Delta production due to uncertainties about the company's return to the region and repairs.
