Shell Lifts 'force majeure' for Forcados Liftings

Royal Dutch Shell lifted force majeure on exports of Nigeria's Forcados crude oil, a spokeswoman said on Wednesday.

 
The grade, which typically exports 200,000-240,000 barrels per day (bpd) had been under force majeure since February 2016 following a militant attack on the main export route, the Trans Forcados Pipeline.
 
Last week Shell issued a loading programme for June exports that lifted planned exports from Nigeria to at least a 15-month high.
