Royal Dutch Shell Resumed Pumping in Nigeria

Spokespersons of the corporation said they had resumed pumping 150 thousand barrels per day

Royal Dutch Shell announced today it had resumed production in some of the wells it operates in Nigeria.

Spokespersons of the corporation said they had resumed pumping 150 thousand barrels per day through the BOMU pipeline, which was paralyzed last weekend due to popular protests.

According to industry data, since 2006 Nigeria's oil production faces cuts of up to 25 percent due to attacks against well platforms and pipelines in the zone of the Niger delta.

The crude volume affected is currently around the 770 thousand barrels per day, although it exceded the million barrels (of 159 liters each).
