Oil giants, Shell, said on Friday that its Nigerian joint venture has lifted its force majeure on natural gas supplies to the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas Co (NLNG) after repairing a pipeline.
The force majeure was put in place on 4 August after the company discovered a leak on the Eastern Gas Gathering System (EGGS-1).
"The leak was caused by a crude theft connection, apparently installed by people who thought the line was transporting crude oil," a spokesman for Shell said in an emailed statement.
