Pipeline bombing......

Eni, the parent company of the Nigerian Agip Oil Company, NAOC, says its oil production has been reduced by 65,000 barrels per day after an attack on one of its pipelines in Bayelsa on Friday.

In May this year, the company’s oil output was shutdown by 5,200 barrels following attacks on its oil field.



    A spokesman for Eni confirmed the development in a short email sent to journalists on Sunday, June 5, 2016.

    Statistics from the company shows that Nigeria loses more than $3 million each day NAOC facility remains out of production.

    In a related development, spokesman of Aiteo, the company that operates the Nembe Creek Trunk Line, Shola Omole, said Aiteo has shut its line which conveyed crude to Bonny export terminal due to an attack on the line on May 28, and about 75,000 barrels daily production was deferred.

    Nigeria’s minister of State for Petroleum, Ibe Kachikwu, on Thursday, said that Nigeria was producing 1.6 million barrels of oil per day, excluding production outages due to attacks on Agip, Shell and Chevron.
