The FINANCIAL — Shell Petroleum Production Co., or SNEPCo, on Sunday said the oil leak from its Bongo facility off the Nigerian coast has "largely been dispersed.", according to Borsa Italiana – London Stock Exchange.
About 40,000 barrels of oil leaked five days ago during a routine operation to transfer oil from Bonga's floating production, storage and offtake, or FPSO, vessel to an oil tanker.
Shell said it became aware of the leak on Tuesday at its Bonga field, about 120 kilometers off Nigeria. Production was reported to have stopped at the field, which has a capacity of 200,000 barrels a day.
Okonedo didn't say when production will likely resume at the Bonga facility.
