Shell Petroleum Development Company Limited (SPDC) has declared force majeure on gas supplies to Nigeria LNG, effective 09:00 hrs (Nigerian time) on Wednesday, May 15 2013. This action is due to production deferment following a reported leak along the Eastern Gas Gathering System (EGGS-1) right-of-way (RoW) near Awoba in Rivers State. In line with safety precautions, we have shut down our Soku and Gbaran Ubie gas export via the EGGS1 pipeline. Some 1.5 billion standard cubic feet of gas per day is currently impacted. For a limited time and subject to capacity limitations, SPDC are able to export about 100-200MMscf/d from Soku via the GTS1.
