Shell declares force majeure on Nigeria oil exports

Sat 20 Sep 2008, 8:47 GMT LAGOS (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell said on Saturday it had declared a second force majeure on crude oil shipments from Nigeria following militant attacks in recent days on its facilities in the Niger Delta.

Shell last week extended a force majeure, which frees it from contractual obligations, on Bonny oil exports from Nigeria following a militant attack in late July.

It said it had declared the second force majeure on Bonny Light shipments on Friday, following further attacks by militants this week.

Chris Osborne: water and fuel. . . who will arbitrate in scramble for resources?

Isn't the professed devotion of Shell and BP today to renewables mere greenwash, though? “Greenwash is a pejorative term. I'm not sure that's warranted. These are companies like any other companies and they exist to make money.”
