Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Ltd has declared force majeure on gas supply to the Nigeria LNG’s export facility on Bonny Island.

Force majeure is a legal clause that allows companies to cancel or delay deliveries due to unforeseen circumstances

According to reports from Today,  the oil major said the force majeure was declared on August 8, 2016, following a leak on the Eastern Gas Gathering System pipeline through which it supplies the bulk of Shell’s gas to NLNG.

“The pipeline has been shut down for a joint investigation visit into the cause of the leak and repairs,” a Shell spokeswoman, Natasha Obank, said in a statement, adding that SPDC continues to supply gas to the facility through other pipelines.
