Shell shuts Nigeria gas pipeline due to breach -statement

11/24/2020 | 07:28am

YENAGOA (Reuters) - A gas pipeline in Nigeria's Baylesa state was shut down following a breach, Royal Dutch Shell's local subsidiary said in a statement on Tuesday.

The breach was reported on Monday on the pipeline, which carries gas to the SPDC-operated Gbaran gas plant, an SPDC spokesman said.

"We immediately shut in the line and we have informed the relevant government agencies and stakeholders," SPDC said in a statement. A government-led investigation will determine the cause of the breach, it said.

The local subsidiary of Eni is a joint-venture partner on the line, but did not immediately comment.
